Air Force Week Central Florida Kicks Off at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom

It’s finally here! The highly anticipated Air Force Week Central Florida has arrived, and it started in such an exciting way. The theme for this year’s Air Force Week is Honoring Hometown Heroes. Disney World’s Magic Kingdom became a little happier when friends, family and fellow Airmen lined up to watch and cheer on some Hometown Heroes. Family and friends also danced along as the Hometown Heroes participated in two different parades– “Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It!” and then again in the “Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade.”  Wow, it was a busy day, and on top of that a flag retreat ceremony was also held. The Thunderbirds had a flyover across the entire park, which looked even more dramatic with the Cinderella Castle in the foreground. If you couldn’t be with us in the Magic Kingdom, check out our photos. We’ll also bring you more info about the events going on this week, so stay tuned, and let us know what you think.
