The United States Navy Blue Angels flight demonstration squadron flies over Epcot in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., May 2, 2019. Flying just 500 feet above the ground, the elite squadron — en route to an airshow in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.— thrilled Epcot guests. Support for the U.S. Armed Forces is a long-standing Disney tradition. The flyover of Walt Disney World Resort was in honor of National Military Appreciation Month. With the addition of new attractions, entertainment, dining and shopping, Epcot is undergoing its largest transformation since it opened in 1982. (Cappy Surette, photographer)
