    Flag Retreat Ceremony in MK

    My dad is a disabled vet and I was thinking that after our cruise when we are in the parks he would really enjoy that. I know it is at 5:15 everyday in the MK. I also know they honor veterans. Do you need to sign up for that? How does that part of it work? Anyone had their vet honored that way?

    I tried searching the threads but was not finding any info on it.
    Thanks!!

    I would try asking Guest Relations at MK (I've heard a vet can be signed up, so this would be the best place to ask).

    I agree. I would check with Guest Relations as soon as I got to MK. It is a very moving ceremony.

    That was what I was thinking of doing. Was thinking on Thursday after the WDW radio cruise, so did not know if you had to ask first thing in the morning or if we got there about noon if that would be too late.

    It is first come, first served so head to Guest Relations on arrival and see if it is still possible for that day.

    Re: Flag Retreat Ceremony in MK

    Hi! Long time lurker, first time poster.

    I tried to get my stepfather signed up for the flag retreat ceremony when we were in the Magic Kingdom two weeks ago and was told by Guest Relations that the Veteran of the Day is now picked by the Entrance Cast Members during park opening (similar to the Family of the Day).

    You can still check with Guest Relations, but unless your dad is willing to stand in the crowd before opening you may be disappointed like we were.
