    Other than what normally takes place in the American Pavilion in Epcot will there be any special patriotic events taking place at Disney World over Memorial Day weekend?

    Hi Thomas, 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for asking us a great question.

    This is the first year in a long time that I don’t visit Walt Disney World Resort over Memorial Day weekend, and I’m trying desperately to stay Zen about not being in my happy place this May! If memory serves, you’re right that there are some small patriotic celebrations taking place around The American Adventure at Epcot. I also remember some small additional decorations and displays around The Hall of Presidents and Liberty Square at Magic Kingdom Park, too. 

    What I remember most about Memorial Day is that it’s typically the kickoff for the Disney Parks’ summer festivities! The Disney Parks Blog typically has a post in the days before Memorial Day weekend where you can find a list of all of the fun things to see and do during your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort, so keep checking for more details. 

    I hope my answer helps you plan a wonderful weekend in a few short days! Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
