    We are arriving in Disneyland on Veterans Day 2021 with 2 veterans. 1 from Vietnam War, 1 from Iraqi Freedom. Does Disneyland do or have any special celebrations to honor our veterans?

    Hi ya, Kelly!

    Thank you so much for visiting us at planDisney today. Let me first begin with a huge thank you from my military family to yours, “Thank You!”. I’m so happy to see that you will be visiting the Disneyland Resort very soon.

    It has been a few years since my last visit on Veterans Day, but I am happy to share that every day on Main Street, U.S.A., you can view and take part in the daily Flag Retreat Ceremony. It usually takes place around 4:30 p.m., so be sure to check the daily schedule once you arrive. I do remember the announcer asking for past and current service members to step forward before the ceremony ends. It’s truly beautiful to see this happen in such a busy place. It’s almost like everything around you doesn’t matter at that moment. 

    If the veterans in your family happened to retire in the military, be sure to take advantage of the Disney Military Promotional Tickets available to eligible service members and their families. My husband is on active duty and we love taking advantage of this incredible offer. 

    I hope this helps answer your question, Kelly. Enjoy your visit and please thank the veterans in your life for us!
