- Multiple reports — including ones from The OC Register and East Bay Times — suggest Disneyland will be flying a helicopter over its park. The helicopter will capture footage for future use.
- The flight took place between between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Monday
- The helicopter dropped as low as 500 feet, according to the reports.
- It’s unclear why the footage is being taken
- MiceChat said: “We’re very curious about what this flight could be for. We’re hoping there’s a special video coming soon.”
Why it it happening?
- BlogMickey.com reported this is due to Disney 3D mapping its parks. You can read more about Disneyland and Walt Disney World’s plans at BlogMickey.com.
This has happened before
- According to WDW News Today, Walt Disney World performed flyovers to capture footage of the empty park, too.
- The OC Register captured footage of Disneyland from a helicopter back in May. The footage showed more of Orange County, California, with few people outside at theme parks, too.
- The OC Register said: “The last few months have turned Orange County into a weird combination of major metropolis and ghost town. But, as the county inches closer to opening back up, traffic will increase and parking lots will start to fill up again.”
