        I remember hearing about Ear Force One, although I’ve never seen it in person. I knew about it before my first trip to Walt Disney World in 1988.

            There are 2 possible ways to get the photos from the air.
            1. they fly along side the restricted air space and take photos, this can be done even when the park is full.
            2. since the park is empty they can get special permission to fly through the restricted air space. There is a you tube video of this happening I do not remember the source.

                If there is a Micecopter, is it safe to assume there is a Mice-Mobile?

                    I am a pilot and have flown over DL. DL is not “restricted” airspace, it has what’s called a Temporary Flight Restriction” (TFR, even though it is permanent). That just means you need to be taking to ATC and they know your intentions to be able to enter that airspace. They won’t let Pilots loiter but crossing overhead below the 300’ TFR ceiling is quite common.

                    Though the TFR was out in place under the guise of “safety” in reality Disney lobbies for it to prevent banner planes from circling the parks

                    Drones are also prohibited in that airspace unless they have the proper approvals.

                      You could fly a Quadcopter (drone) using FPV (First Person View) take couple of quick passes then leave before they track you pretty easy to be honest. I won't go into details because I do not want t encourage it but I know helicopters are now seen as old school for this sort of thing even big budget movies often use "drones" for filming.

                        That is if you can override the no fly zone in the app.
                        "And yes, we implore EVERYBODY to follow the park rules. Having off-ride footage is great, but any still photo's or video's taken ON the coasters at SFMM are strictly against the rules. They are there for your (and everybody's) safety." "Six Flags doesn't allow ANY loose articles on their coasters, and they don't allow video taping on their coasters. " BUT, "​ This is not true. Six Flags does not allow ANY On-Ride video or pictures on the rides. The ONLY way is if you get explicit permission from Park Management." ???

                          Many have no problem as often they do not have this feature, especially many of the knock off's people have purchased from places like Amazon that shipped direct from China.

                              Perhaps the Aerial Imagery can cover the bulldozers as they smash through the submarine lagoon in Tomorrowland ! Maybe Disney will put a Tron attraction in Tomorrowland. That would probably be popular.

                                I hope Disney doesn't put a TRONcoaster in Tomorrowland. As you swoop down in your lightcycle you'll get a sweeping view of Fantasyland and Harbor boulevard. To keep people outside the park from seeing the riders a massive ugly wall will need to be constructed or more 'scream tubes'. Let Florida have TRON and come up with something original for Disneyland (for a change).
