Walt Disney World’s Flag Ceremony on Main Street, U.S.A.

Flag Ceremony at Main Street U.S.A.

Every day at 5:00 p.m., there is a Flag Ceremony in the  square at the entrance to Main Street, U.S.A.  For visitors and armed forces Veterans alike, this is a touching ceremony, and one that veretans and vacationers alike will enjoy.

During the Flag Ceremony, the flag is taken down for the night.  If you are a Veteran, you can inquire about participating in the ceremony.  Daily participants include Walt Disney World Security Officers and the Main Street Philharmonic marching band.  The Dapper Dans barbershop quartet sing “God Bless America”, and announcements are  made by The Mayor of Main Street.  A veteran chosen at random carries  the folded flag while the Philharmonic band plays John Philip Souza’s “The Liberty Bell” on the march down Main Street.

Disney vacationers report that the daily Flag Ceremony is an emotional event, and many people make it trip goal to be present for the event.

God bless all who have, are, or will serve our great nation.

  1. I have never seen the flag ceremony, I am sure it is a moving experience. I’ll have to make plans to see it on our next trip!

    I’ll have to try and plan to watch this the next time I am down there — sounds wonderful.

  3. Just watched the ceremony for the first time in November, and you are right, it is so incredibly emotional! Everyone needs to take the time and watch it at least once during their next trip.

    My family and I watched the flag ceremony this past October when we visited WDW. It was amazing. I think it is SO important for my kids to take a break from all of the WDW magic and remember that we are all so lucky to be Americans and that we always need to remember and be respectful of the flag and our soldiers…no matter where we are…even WDW! As a mom of Cub Scouts, this is a ceremony that we will make it a point to NEVER miss.

    I have also seen this Flag Ceremony, but at the Disneyland Resort. I agree; it is a very emotional experience and I wouldn’t miss it for anything! I do not recall the flag being walked down Main Street, however. It is a wonderful way to remember those in service and the proper respect they and our flag should be given. Thanks for the memory!

  6. My 9 yo daughter was asked to lead the guests in saying the Pledge of Allegiance during the flag ceremony one afternoon last week–it was totally unexpected, but quite a pleasant surprise. She stood with the Dapper Dans during the entire ceremony and then had the opportunity to march down Main St. afterward. What an amazing family memory!
