In an exciting celebration of Independence Day, Walt Disney World Resort has announced plans to host awe-inspiring U.S. Air Force flyovers over Magic Kingdom Park on July 4, 2023. This event is part of the Air Force’s national outreach program, which aims to engage and inspire the next generation of patriotism. As the Air Force commemorates its 100 years of aerial refueling capabilities, this year also marks the 100th anniversary of The Walt Disney Company.
The Fourth of July is a time for patriotic celebrations throughout the United States, and Walt Disney World Resort provides an ideal setting to honor the stars and stripes. As a testament to Walt Disney’s deep love for America and his unwavering faith in the nation’s future, the resort has long embraced time-honored traditions that reflect these values.
Starting at approximately 10:30 a.m., visitors to Magic Kingdom Park will witness two thrilling flyovers, weather permitting. The display will feature a squadron of F-35 stealth fighter jets flown by the 33rd Fighter Wing, showcasing the Air Force’s remarkable capabilities. Additionally, the first flyover will include a KC-135 tanker flown by the 6th Air Refueling Wing, paying tribute to the Air Force’s century of aerial refueling expertise.
This flyover event exemplifies Disney’s enduring support for the military, a commitment rooted in the actions of the company’s founders, Walt and Roy Disney, who served their country during the First World War. Disney continues to honor military members and veterans with special events like the daily Flag Retreat ceremony at Magic Kingdom Park. During this ceremony, an active-duty military member or veteran is chosen from the park’s visitors to receive recognition.
The Walt Disney Company has spearheaded initiatives such as Heroes Work Here, Heroes Supply Here, and Disney’s Veterans Institute, which focus on hiring, training, and supporting military veterans.
Walt Disney World Resort’s celebration of Independence Day will reach new heights with the stunning U.S. Air Force flyovers at Magic Kingdom Park. This event not only honors America’s patriotic spirit but also commemorates significant milestones for both the Air Force and The Walt Disney Company. By continuing their legacy of supporting the military, Disney ensures that the values of honor and service remain integral to their operations.
