    The Magical Bucket List #3 – Fly over Walt Disney World

    In the previous installment of our series looking at unusual and amazing experiences at Disney theme park resorts, we suggested heading underground at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. Now, why not soar above the resort?

    It’s possible to take an aerial tour over Walt Disney World, as well as many other Orlando-area attractions. One of the leading providers is Mauiva Air Tours, which offers trips that take in:

    • Disney’s Magic Kingdom
    • Disney’s Animal Kingdom
    • Downtown Disney
    • Epcot
    • Walt Disney World’s Swan & Dolphin Resorts
    • ESPN Wide World of Sports
    • Celebration
    • Universal Studios Florida
    • Islands of Adventure
    • The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
    • SeaWorld Orlando
    • Discovery Cove
    • Old Town
    • I-Drive

    If you want to, you can even try your hand at being a pilot, taking controls of the airplane. Those purchasing the Captain’s Package will also receive a certificate showing the time they’ve logged towards becoming a pilot. The experience is available to those aged 5 and up.

    To whet your appetite, here are a few shots of Walt Disney World from above:
