Guests visiting Epcot on May 2 will have the rare opportunity to see some of the world’s best pilots in action during their Walt Disney World Resort vacation when the U.S. Navy Blue Angels fly over the park’s iconic Spaceship Earth attraction.
In honor of Military Appreciation Month, The U.S. Navy Blue Angels are scheduled to make two flight passes over Epcot on the morning of Thursday, May 2 before continuing their flight to the Fort Lauderdale Air Show in Florida. If you’re planning to be at Epcot for the flyovers, a great viewing area will be between Spaceship Earth and the entrance to World Showcase.
In 2015 and 2017, the Blue Angels performed similar flyovers to the cheers of thousands of guests at Magic Kingdom Park. At speeds of more than 250 mph, the Blue Angels performed a perfect “Delta Break” maneuver right above Cinderella Castle.
Be sure to check the Disney Parks Blog on May 2 for coverage of the Blue Angel flyover at Epcot.
