At 5pm on the nose EVERY day in Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World FL a special ceremony takes place in the middle of Town Square off of Main Street USA. It is the Flag Retreat. Yes every day Disney pays respect to our country, to our military, to our veterans and to our flag with a very patriotic flag retreat ceremony.
While my son was in Basic Training, I couldn’t watch the ceremony without crying. A feeling of pride that my son was one of the few that Disney was recognizing in this ceremony. Now when watching it, I still well up with pride, but I think of all those who have defended our freedom, our nation and what we are as a country and how I wish each and everyone of them could experience the magic and joy of Walt Disney World.

In short, Luck. But if you are lucky enough to be the first person to go in to City Hall and ask about it, or to be, or to have someone be the Honorary Veteran for the day. That is really all there is too it. Hopefully you get to be selected!
