The custom-painted Boeing Next-Generation 737-800 series aircraft was unveiled in Calgary after teams worked around the clock for nearly a month adding 36 different colors to the outside of the “Magic Plane.” The actual design was created by WestJet and Disney Parks & Resorts (Canada) to tell a story from tail to nose.

Sorcerer Mickey is on the tail of the “Magic Plane” with stars swirling around the fuselage and wings to images of fireworks over Cinderella Castle at the Walt Disney World Resort. The two sides of the aircraft are mirror images of each other in all aspects but one – and that’s for you to discover.

Inside the “Magic Plane,” guests receive cookies in the shape of Disney characters on all flights and there are custom star-designed headrest covers to add to the magic inside the cabin.

The “Magic Plane” will make its inaugural flight to Orlando, Fla., on December 3. Following the flight, it will travel throughout WestJet’s domestic, trans-border and international network.

Keep an eye to the sky for Sorcerer Mickey beginning December 3 and let us know what you think of the design in the comments and with the hashtag #MagicPlane.



  • Brilliant! I hope they show Disney movies through the onboard entertainment system!

  • this is beautiful

  • This plane is awesome! I hope someday there will be many more planes like this, I would love to fly on one one day.

  • Hi Thomas,

    Canadian guests love this and believe me there are a multitude of Canadians who are frequent visitors to the many Disney Parks around the World. My family has visited the Disney Parks twenty-five times, Aulani-A Disney Resort and Spa and have are preparing for our ninth cruise with Disney this July sailing from Venice on the re-imagined Disney Magic. We have sailed all four ships in the fleet and are devoted to Disney Cruise Line. We won’t sail any other line.

    We are all very proud of WestJet here in Canada, it’s a great airline and provides wonderful service.

    Thank you for this wonderful post. I plan to spread the magic through all my Social Media outlets. I love reading all your posts, Thomas!

    Best regards,

  • Oh how cool is this! Would love to fly from Disneyland to Disneyworld!

  • Would be so great to have planes like this flying out of the big cities in the USA specifically for the Disney vacationers!
    Pity they are only flying out of Canada….

  • I’d pay MORE to take that flight! I don’t think WestJet flies out of MSP…YET. Hope they do one day!

  • YQU to LAX January 16 please. I sure hope the other side says Disneyland.

  • :O! Why was this never thought of or done before!? I love itt!

  • This is way cool.
    I hope it does the Anahiem run.
    WestJet and Disney will make great partners. I hope there are some Hidden Mickeys in the cabin.
    WestJet is always trying to create an unforgettable guest experience, what a great idea.
    Kudos to Gregg Saretsky, WestJet and Disney

  • Can you please clarify how someone books a flight on this plane? Flying out of Canada to WDW?

  • Would SO love to fly on this plane!!! I would love my car to look like that! 🙂

  • Yay, it has Cinderella’s Castle!! Beautiful livery, Alaska is getting some serious competition now.
    Should I add Spoiler Alert? 🙂
