How’d An X-Wing Fighter Show Up On FlightAware?

I’m a big fan of FlightAware. It’s one of the seven travel apps you need to have when traveling. It’s also the app I use to spy on family and friends when they’re traveling.

So the last thing I’m expecting to see when I pull up FlightAware is an X-Wing on the map.

The Little-Known Airport On Walt Disney World Property

Most visitors to Walt Disney World (WDW) fly to Central Florida and land at Orlando International Airport (although some fly into Sanford or even Melbourne). From there they take ground transportation, either via rental car, ride-sharing, bus, shuttle, or, not yet but maybe one of these days, maybe even train.

You Want Discount Tickets to Walt Disney World? Here’s Where To Look & And Where Not To!

There was a time when I was a HUGE fan of Disney and be it the parks, the movies, the music, you name it, I was a walking, talking Disney encyclopedia. For years before Joe and I took the leap and moved to Central Florida, if friends, family or co-workers had a question about going to Walt Disney World (WDW), be it during which part of the year they should go, what they should do or where they should eat, they’d ask me. My people from up north still ask me those kinds of questions, just via Facebook private messages rather than in person, and although I’m not “in the know” as much as I used to be, I still help them out as much as I can.

With one-day, one-park ticket prices to the parks now varying from at least $110 to $169 per day (based on season, theme park and when you buy your tickets, because yes, Disney has now thrown those factors into the mix. Let’s just say I don’t recommend going to the Magic Kingdom on the weekend in the summer. Oh, and don’t even THINK about park hopping because that will cost you even more), the often-asked question of, “How can I get discounted tickets to WDW?” has now turned into a HUGE question.
