United States Air Force Thunderbird Jets Flying Over Magic Kingdom Park

Next week, we’re celebrating “Hometown Heroes” at Magic Kingdom Park in honor of Air Force Week in Central Florida. And the day will include quite a sight – the United States Air Force Thunderbird jets flying over Magic Kingdom Park. The flyover will be Tuesday, October 26 at about 3:15 p.m. Also, United States Air Force dignitaries will be honored during the day at the park’s “Celebrate a Dream Come True” parade.

And you may not have seen this yet, but we’ve launched a new Facebook game inspired by this year’s Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. The game puts you in the middle of the Festival serving up dishes from around the world. It’ll only be available for a limited time so go and check it out and then let us know what you think.

  • The picture of the military jets over the MK is wonderful… Thank you for sharing this with us! Also, I always take time to thank our veterans for serving our country….and Disney has always done so much to Salute American Veterans ever since I can remember as a child so Let me say To YOU: Thank You DISNEY for Serving BOTH our Country & for honoring each and every day the people who serve in the armed forces in ways that are far beyond my capability to describe in detail!!!!!

  • Thomas – was the photo above taken on April 7, 2008? If so, my family and I were there in the Magic Kingdom, and are five of the colorful “blobs” down there on Main Street! We were accompanying my mother on her first-ever trip to WDW and that was the first day of our visit – and the surprise appearance by the Thunderbirds definitely added to our “Year of a Million Dreams!” I’m so happy to hear they’ll be back to create a LOT of excitement (and noise!) for more of your guests! It was something I know that we will never forget! 8(:-D

  • Will they be visible from any park?

  • Is it going to be just a quick fly-over by the Thunderbirds, or will they perform some stunts for a while?
