    I am a Marine Vet and want to retrieve the colors on Main Street while we are at WDW. can you tell me the steps to take in order to achieve this?

    Hi, Dave!

    Thank you, Sir, for your service to our beautiful country. You are a true American Hero!

    From what I understand, the service men and women who participate in the Flag Retreat Ceremony at the Magic Kingdom are selected at random. However, I always feel there is nothing wrong in asking for this honor. I would do a few things to increase your chances of being selected...

    -Start your day early in the Magic Kingdom. If you are at rope drop, chat with the nearby Cast Members about the selection process.
    -Stop by City Hall and speak to a Cast Member at Guest Relations and ask if you can participate.
    -Show your spirit! Wear a USA T-shirt or a USA Marines shirt. Anything you can do to stand out can help.

    My family and I find it to be an honor to watch the Flag Retreat Ceremony as often as possible when visiting Walt Disney World. It is great to take time out to pay respect to all who serve our country the wonderful United States of America! This ceremony takes place daily at 5:00 p.m. and all guests are welcome to join in this wonderful experience.

    Since you are a respected military veteran, please note special offers available!

    Again, thank you for your service!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
