For several years, a local anonymous skywriter has taken to the skies to send a message to Walt Disney World Resort Guests and the surrounding Central Florida area: “U + God = :)”
The seemingly harmless and good-natured message can be seen for miles and disappears mere minutes after the aerial acrobatics can be completed. Other variations of the positive messages include “Jesus Loves You” and “God Is Love.” The messages have always been positive in nature. But it seems that some Guests have taken offense to it.
One hater took a picture of one of the religious messages, saying “since when was magic kingdom not a no-fly zone? kinda don’t want this while I’m trying to enjoy a parade.”

Turns out this person is not the only one who takes umbrage with seeing a message of good will.
Another person said, “seeing this always puts a big bummer on my park day.”
A third said, “forget american atheists in this scenario, just think about all of the religions around the world and all of the people that are choosing to travel here. i know america is already so christianity-obsessed, but imagine how disrespected that must make people of other faiths feel.”

It should be noted that The Walt Disney World Resort still has a no-fly zone that prohibits any aircraft below 3,000 feet, and it is impossible to tell if the pilot is in violation of that or not.
While these offended Disney Adults have spoken out against this, it is unknown if it will be enough to cause authorities to ground the messenger.
