The Disney Magic Plane
The story of the Magic Plane
On December 2, 2013, WestJet and Walt Disney Parks & Resorts (Canada) pulled back the curtain on one of our most exciting adventures: a custom-painted Boeing Next-Generation 737-800 aircraft. After the aircraft performed its inaugural flight from Calgary Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, it began flying throughout WestJet’s domestic, trans-border and international network.
The interior of the Disney magic aircraft has since been updated to reflect our new 2x2 seating and cabin reconfiguration and no longer features special decals on the interior.
