    My Dad is a Marine vet. Do you know how I can get him a flag?

    Hi Ken! It is wonderful you want to honor your dad and his service to our country. Disney daily honors our veterans during the Flag Retreat ceremony in the Magic Kingdom.

    This is a short 15 minute ceremony with the Disney Main Street band and honor guard participating at the flag pole in the town square at 5pm each day. A guest veteran will participate and be handed the flag as it is brought down and folded. This guest will then help lead the procession out onto Main Street. The flag is not given to the veteran to take home but it is quite an honor to participate in this moving ceremony.

    When you arrive in the park immediately go to Guest Services and ask about the possibility of having your father participate in this ceremony. It is done on a first come basis so be sure and be there early. If that day is taken perhaps you can ask about another day where you can be in the park for the ceremony.
