I’m sure that a good amount of us have been to Disney World before. Well, did you know that there is a former runway located just off of the entrance to Magic Kingdom (the biggest and most popular park)? I didn’t know either until I just found this video. Watch the whole thing, the guy shows where the road turns into the runway and old pictures of it as well.
Apparently if you are driving into Magic Kingdom, make a right on a small service road right before you hit the tolls and it will turn in to a runway. Back a while ago, there was even scheduled prop service from FLL, PBI, MCO and TPA to this tiny runway, using DHC-6 aircraft. Celebs and rich people would fly their private planes in and head right in to the park! Also, when you touch down, there were groves in the runway (like on the side of a highway) that play the song “When you wish upon a star” if the pilot is driving at over 45 MPH.
Please be honest, did you know that this existed before watching this video?
- Yes, I have even been to that runway!
- Yes, but I haven’t been to that runway.
Well, if you’re like me and didn’t know, I hope you enjoyed learning this and were somewhat surprised:)
