  1. Theory before reading the article: because they’re a good target for terrorism. Plus they might be standard no-fly zones because they also have helipads for airlifting people considering how many Make-a-Wish kids go to Disney annually.

    Edit: terrorism theory was correct. But also Disney doesn’t want planes with banner ads flying over their parks.

    There was nothing about helipads but maybe they still have them or they’re just outside the restricted airspace.
