What is Flag Retreat at the Magic Kingdom?

While Flag Retreat at Walt Disney World Resort’s Magic Kingdom shares some definite similarities to the Disneyland version of Flag Retreat, there are some unique differences that make it stand apart from its West Coast counterpart.

Prior to the lowering of the flag for the evening, the Dapper Dans (and some special young guests) lead the crowd in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.

And rather than inviting up all current and former military in attendance, the park selects an official Veteran of the Day who is chosen to bear the folded flag and be specially recognized for their service.

As the Dapper Dans of the Magic Kingdom do not wear head mics like their Disneyland brethren do, they are provided with hand-held microphones for the duration of the event.
