5. Flag Retreat
At Magic Kingdom, any guest can stop to watch a wonderful Flag Retreat. Watch the American Flag retire for the evening every night at 5pm on Main St USA. Interestingly, this is the only real American Flag in the park, therefore the only one that needs to stay in co ordinance with the U.S. Flag Code. This code requires U.S. Flags to be displayed outdoors sunrise to sunset only. Look closely and notice the other flags contain an incorrect amount of stars or stripes, preventing the need to bring them in each evening. Watch this beautiful display of patriotism daily.
