Texas Congressman Wants to Revoke ‘No-Fly Zone’ Over Disney Parks
Texas Congressman Troy E. Nehls has begun a campaign to revoke the “No-fly Zones” over Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
The politician tweeted today that he has sent letters to the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, and the US Secretary of Transportation, Pete Buttigieg, beseeching them to revoke the special designation.
The no-fly zone prevents aircraft from traveling directly over the parks. The zones were established in 2003 as a “temporary” restriction. Congressman Nehls argues that since a Disney spokesperson once noted that the zone would prevent aircraft “buzzing” and banners from being flown over, the argument of security is invalid.
He also cited the lack of no-fly zones over neighboring attractions such as Universal Orlando Resort.
