Walt Disney truly was a remarkable man. His vision continues to create magical memories for families every day. Find out how Walt Disney may be honored as a true American hero.
Since Disneyland first welcomed guests in 1955 until now, the Disney Parks have found special ways to pay tribute to our great country and to the men and women who have served.
One daily way that both Disneyland and Walt Disney World show honor to our country is by raising and lowering the American flag daily right on Main Street. Even while the Disney Parks remained closed earlier this year, the flag was still raised and lowered daily. View this beautiful flag ceremony HERE.
Walt Disney endeavored for both Disneyland and Walt Disney World to foster pride for our country. This is clearly evident as you see the American flags lined along Main Street, USA.
Also, Guests may enjoy a journey through time with such great attractions as the Hall of Presidents in Magic Kingdom and Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln in Disneyland.
Today, President Trump signed an Executive Order that included many great nominees to be included in the “National Garden of American Heroes.” Trump stated, “Each individual has been chosen for embodying the American spirit of daring and defiance, excellence and adventure, courage and confidence, loyalty and love.”
