There is nothing more magical than the Flag Retreat at Magic Kingdom Park each day. No matter where I am I always get emotional with the Pledge of Allegiance and patriotic songs. But Disney World adds an extra layer of emotions when you add to it the beautiful back drop of Cinderella’s Castle and fellow Americans taking the time to stand still in the midst of their vacation to honor our country and our soldiers. It truly is beautiful!
Every day at 5:00 PM you can feel the Spirit of America come to life on Main Street U.S.A. as the American flag is retired each night. This is a daily tribute to our troops and veterans as a thank you for their sacrifice and dedication to our freedom. The Flag Retreat begins with the Pledge of Allegiance and then the trumpet sounding the Retreat as the American Flag is lowered. Members of the Color Guard remove the flag as guests are lead in “God Bless America”. Then the folded flag is handed to a guest Veteran in thanks for their service. You are sure to feel the American pride in this daily event.
