Default Disney Airlines

The Walt Disney Company is about to enter the domestic aviation travel industry! Starting in 2021, The Disney Company will acquire smaller regional airlines to focus it’s operations on offering flights out of Orlando to and from major airport hubs including Detroit, Chicago, LaGuardia, and LAX.

Disney has been cited in the past expanding their transportation offerings, with Disney’s Magical Express. The Magical Express is a transportation service that shuttles guests from Orlando’s Airport and to Disney Resort throughout the property. Now with Disney looking to operate in the air, they will control more of the guest experience.

We have “ears” inside on this development and have been given information that the entertainment offerings will include inflight Disney + access to each seat, Disney’s new streaming service. Disney songs will be being played over the airplane’s speakers as you board. There are also discussions that characters will also be making appearances before the cabin doors are closed to send you on your way. Buzz Lightyear, will have a heavy presence as your “captain speaking.”

The airlines will be “wrapped” with famous Marvel and princess themes to help celebrate your big trip. Disney is to stay competitive with rates that are just as affordable as South West Airlines and United. One perk that passengers can look forward to is if your staying at an onsite Disney resort within 48 hours of your flight, your first bag is checked free of charge for every passenger.

Onboard snacks are to include, Mickey Premium Ice Cream bars, warm churros, and Strawberry fruit bars, Coca Cola will be in exclusivity with the airline as well. As more of this develops look here for more insight on how you can become one of the first guests aboard!

Disney has a reputation for top notch service for families at their company owned lodging and attractions. Their cruises command a significant premium as well. When it comes to vacation for the well off young family, Disney is the gold standard. I imagine Disney's costumer surveys show that the flight to their property is by far the worst part of the trip. Looks like they are going to try to fix that problem. Instead of a Hooter's girl, Micky might be flying the friendly skies..

What are these small regional carriers they speak of? Are they buying up Compass and Gojet or is Mohawk and Allegheny still around? Lol, I think it was a matter of time before they tried this, book a vacation package from them, door to door is Disney service, to the park or their cruise ships. Only $1200 per person for a one way ticket in economy class. Cue mickeys voice asking for your credit card

Everything about this looks like a college junior at ERAU put it together. That or some flight sim jockey creating a digital airline.

Fake news.

I tell ya h'wat, when I'm creating an airline, the first thing I plan are the snacks.

I bet airline executives around the country created warm churros in their pants upon hearing this announcement.

What they really need is to resurrect their own airport, minutes from the parks.

Sounds like a real ”Mickey Mouse operation”, to me.
