If you are visiting Walt Disney World this week, you might want to look to the sky! Disney is celebrating National Veterans and Military Families month in an exciting way.
Honoring the Military
Walt Disney World prides itself in honoring our military and armed forces all year long. You might have seen the flag ceremonies at Walt Disney World and Disneyland that take place each day. You can read more about those HERE. Each day an active duty service member or veteran can participate.
Not only that, but Disney offers military discounts to veterans and their families for Walt Disney World and Disneyland. There is even a hotel on property for families to stay called Shades of Green. If you are not familiar with that resort, take a look at Monica’s review HERE.
Throughout the year, we see all sorts of different ways Disney honors service members and veterans. I (Maggie) think it’s a great way to say “thank you!”
National Veterans and Military Families Month
Did you know that November is National Veterans and Military Families month? Disney has decided to honor the special month in a big way!
The Walt Disney World Cast and Community shared the following update today:
As part of Disney’s enduring respect for those who serve in the military and their families, we are hosting a flyover over Magic Kingdom Park by the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds flight demonstration team on Thursday, October 27 to mark the arrival of National Veterans and Military Families Month in November.
They will do two passes beginning at 9:30 a.m. over the park (weather dependent) culminating in their famous delta maneuver where they pass over the castle accelerating rapidly in different directions giving the appearance of a fireworks display.
