The Washington family owned the lands there from the days of the family’s grandfather, that is, since 1674, and in 1739 the family began to expand its properties with the reign of the family’s grandson George Washington, who began to own real estate from the year 1754, but was not the only owner until the year 1761.

5. Disney Theme parks

The Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts frequently attracts larger crowds. After the September 11 attacks, Disney successfully had a “temporary” no-fly zone restriction slipped into a nearly $400 billion federal spending bill in 2003, which established the restricted airspace over its Anaheim and Orlando theme parks

These places are the most magical places on Earth; home to Mickey Mouse, Cinderella and many other Disney characters we all loved watching while growing up.

Planes are restricted from flying over to protect visitors.


5. Mecca:

Aeroplanes are prohibited from entering Mecca and flying over the Holy Kaaba, as a mark of respect for their religious custom. It is also the centre of gravity, making it more important for planes to avoid the route.
