    Unexpectedly will be in Disney world on 9/11. Are there any special activities to commemorate the day?

    Hi Anne,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like you are planning a happy unexpected trip to the Walt Disney World Resort. 

    Hopefully by now, you have heard that the Walt Disney World Resort will be closed on September 10 and 11, 2017 due to the hurricane. Please check the website for updates. I am so sorry that your trip will not go as planned!

    On another day, I do hope you get to enjoy the Flag Retreat. This is a special tribute to thank veterans for their service. Held daily in Magic Kingdom Park, it reminds us of the sacrifice veterans made in the pursuit of peace. It might also be a good way to remember how precious freedom is.

    If you are able to visit on another day, I would also suggest that you visit Epcot to hear the Voices of Liberty. They sing a medley of songs that speak to the American story, the liberty and pioneering spirit that represent the history of the United States. I believe that listening to the Voices of Liberty might be just the perfect way to commemorate September 11 - the music inspires me each time I hear it.  When I listen, I always feel as if the music brings us together with collective hope.

    As always, check the show times when you arrive. Show availability and performance times can vary.

    Anne, I do hope that you are able to reschedule your trip!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
