Disney Planes Activity: Watching Planes Land

One of our favorite places to go for a picnic is Gravelly Point Park. Located right next to Reagan National Airport, it’s a grassy area on the river where planes fly right overhead as they take off or land in Washington DC.

We went just before dusk and spread out a blanket. The kids played in the grass while we waited to see the airplanes.

It was a busy night at the airport!  We saw lots of planes.

They were loud! We took turns covering the kids’ ears.

It’s a unique experience, with a great view! Highly recommended.
