5. Watch the Flag Retreat Ceremony In The Afternoon.

This rarely mentioned ceremony is an incredible experience for Magic Kingdom guests. Each afternoon at 5:00 p.m. guests and cast members gather at the flagpole to honor our country by lowering the flag to retire it for the evening as the sound of The Star Spangled Banner flows through the air played by The Magic Kingdom Philharmonic Band. Each ceremony concludes with a veteran receiving the folded flag and a medley of patriotic music being played.
