Flags Flown at Half-Mast Throughout Walt Disney World Today
It is a somber sight across Walt Disney World as Disney flies the American Flags at the theme parks and resorts at half mast to honor the 13 US Military Personnel who lost their lives in Afghanistan this week.
We first noticed the flags as we pass through Disney’s Grand Floridan this morning.
We were told at that time that this is a Disney World Resort-wide tribute -meaning that its impacting all flags at the parks and resorts.
It serves as an emotional reminder of those that gave their lives,
As we traveled over to Magic Kingdom theme park this afternoon, we noticed a similar scene.
Here you can see one of the flags that sits atop Uptown Jewelers on Main Street USA
We also captured some powerful images of the main flag in Town Square as you arrive into the parks.
This is of course the flag at Magic Kingdom where each day’s Flag Retreat ceremony takes place.
Above you can see all of the flags set against the backdrop of Cinderella Castle.
It is not uncommon for Disney to raise the flag following the lead of the government buildings,
Our heartfelt condolences go out to the families, friends and colleagues of those who lost their lives.
Good Bless the USA and be safe this weekend Disney friends.
