    How can I nominate someone for the flag ceremony they do at the Magic Kingdom. I would love to surprise an amazing Veteran who has served over 30 years and now on 90% disability. The entire family is going to be at Shades of Green this holiday.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Tracy!

    Your lovely question is like a warm hug to my heart – I just love that you’d like to honor this special veteran this holiday season. 

    Mine is also a military family, and I’m touched that you’d like to show your gratitude with a special gesture. Each time I watch the Flag Retreat in Magic Kingdom Park, I’m so moved. It’s one of my very favorite magical moments anywhere at the Walt Disney World Resort. The ceremony as the flag is lowered and folded by the Color Guard, and the veteran of the day joins them to march the flag in a short procession up Main Street, U.S.A., is just beautiful. I have tears every time!

    Tracy, to nominate a veteran to participate in the Flag Retreat ceremony, stop by Magic Kingdom Park’s City Hall. The selection process is random and can’t be guaranteed, but I’m sending patriotic pixie dust that they hear your veteran’s story and select them. If you won’t be joining the family, I would call Guest Relations at (407) 939-5277 to speak to a Cast Member about how you can nominate someone. 

    I’m sending you my best wishes that your veteran is selected, and that the family’s holiday visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is wonderful. Showing gratitude for the special people in your life is really what it’s all about, and I hope your Thanksgiving holiday is filled with the magic of family, friends, and full and grateful hearts.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
