The Blue Angels made two VERY LOUD and VERY FAST flight passes over Epcot before continuing their flight to the Fort Lauderdale Air Show in Florida.

Go Navy!  🙂

This continues a tradition of the Blue Angels flying over Disney World every 2 years.

The last flyover was performed over the Magic Kingdom in April 2017.

Note that the Blue Angels do not fly over Disney’s Animal Kingdom to avoid frightening the animals.

Perfect viewing spot for the flyover….Spaceship Earth. The 2019 International Flower and Garden Festival is going on right now.

They did this 2x!  The Delta Break pattern over the Cinderella Castle.

All eyes were focused on the skies on Thursday morning, April 6th,  as the U.S. Navy Blue Angels flew over Main Street U.S.A. at the Magic Kingdom!

This is a special treat as the airspace over the Magic Kingdom is restricted and requires special permission from the FAA!
