There are consequences for flying over Disneyland, Disney California Adventure or Walt Disney World.

The theme parks have the same protection as the White House, the Kennedy Space Center, and sporting events when it comes to restricted air space.

As the Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District learned earlier this month, anyone planning to fly over the theme parks needs a special waiver approved by the Federal Aviation Administration and the Transportation Security Administration.

The district canceled plans to spray a pesticide to kill West Nile-carrying mosquitoes in eight Orange County cities because the company it hired for the job lagged in getting a permit in time for the flight over Disneyland. It takes up to five business days to get an approval, the FAA says.

"TSA will vet the pilots and passengers and then send the waiver request to the FAA for further review and final determination," said Ian Gregor, a spokesman at the FAA.

The Anaheim parks and Walt Disney World received flight-restriction status after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The 2003 law also prohibits aircraft from flying over sporting events in stadiums with a seating capacity of 30,000 or more.

The ban includes any unmanned remote-controlled devices such as drones. Nothing can fly below 3,000 feet and within 3 miles of Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Those are the only theme parks in the United States to have no-fly zone designations.

Law enforcement, medical, and military aircraft are exempt from the restriction as long as they are in contact with air traffic control.
