Disney World And The Thunderbirds

What do the Thunderbirds and Disney have in common? While we are at the Magic Kingdom in Disney World on April 7th, 2008 we got to see the connection.

The night before we got a message on our hotel phone. It was an odd message stating that there would be some loud noises the next day and not to be concerned or worried about them. Disney was aware of this. Of course this is nothing close to the way the message sounded but you get the gist.

We were in front of Cinderella’s Castle when we began to see CM’s(Cast Members) coming to the area in droves. Shawn and Samantha ignored them and went on their way. Me, being the curious one, asked what was going on. I was told that the Thunderbirds would be doing a few flyovers within the next half hour or so.

I grabbed my family and told them excitedly that we needed to stay put. We had to explain to Peanut what the Thunderbirds were even though she had seen them as a toddler. She didn’t think it was a big deal, until they flew over the Castle and Main Street not a few times but about 8 times. It was heart pounding exciting. It made us feel so proud to be Americans. Their mastery of flying was awe inspiring. It was very difficult to take photos due to their speed but I did the best I could. I hope that this brings you a bit of joy today.


Yes dreams do come true at Disney World. I’ve witnessed so many times, but seeing the Thunderbirds fly over Disney is one of my all time favorites.
