Blue Angels Flyover at Epcot
In honor of Military Appreciation Month, the U.S. Navy Blue Angels flew over Epcot Thursday morning, May 2nd at approximately 9:30 a.m.
The main viewing area was located between Spaceship Earth and the entrance to Epcot’s World Showcase.
The U.S. Navy Blue Angels made two passes over Spaceship Earth between 9:30am and 10am.

The six F/A-18 Hornet jets roared overhead at more than 250 miles an hour on a first pass before executing what is called a Delta Break over Spaceship Earth on their 2nd pass over the park.
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.
U.S. Navy Blue Angels Fly Over Magic Kingdom on April 6, 2017
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!
The Blue Angels made two passes above the Magic Kingdom at Disney World between 9:30 and 10:00 a.m.
This is a special treat as the airspace over the Magic Kingdom is restricted and requires special permission from the FAA!

In 2015, the Blue Angels performed similar flyovers to the cheers of thousands of guests at the Magic Kingdom.
We’ve written two books about our time working and playing at Disney World.
Both are available on Amazon.com: Two Girls and a Mouse Tale and Adventures in the Animal Kingdom.
