What is Flag Day in the United States?

What is Flag Day in the United States?

Walt was always outspoken about his love for his country and its defining ideals. The most famous example of this is how he threw himself and his studio into the war effort after the attack on Pearl Harbor. The studio produced over 30 films for World War II-related purposes, including training and morale. 

That patriotism is especially noticeable in the Disney parks, which have areas like Liberty Square and Main Street, USA. Even Frontierland can arguably be grouped with them in that they represent different stages of American history. The American Adventure, a 25-minute Epcot show presenting notable American events and figures, is more overt in this. All these attractions and lands, representing idealized aspects like the idyllic turn-of-the-century small towns and the noble stature of our presidents, immerse visitors in the national mythology.

As you might expect, the Stars and Stripes fly every day in Disney’s parks. The Magic Kingdom and Disneyland even hold a brief service in which the park’s own Color Guard lower and fold the flag for the night. This event, known as the Flag Retreat Ceremony, always features current or veteran members of the military, who are honored with a role. It does not just happen on Flag Day, nor just on similar holidays, but every single afternoon.

Disney Die-Cast Cars and Racers

Disney Die-Cast Cars and Racers

When you were young, were you a Hotwheels kid, a Matchbox kid, or just an undiscriminating fan? Regardless of which you were, odds are that if you were a child within the past seventy years, you were — and possibly remain — an enthusiast for toy cars. These playthings have long sparked imaginations, and much of that appeal comes from the imaginations of the cars’ designers.

The die-cast car is surprisingly malleable: you can give it just about any design, and as long as it has wheels and goes fast, kids will enjoy it. That’s why these tiny automobiles come in all shapes and sizes, from real-life vehicles to pure-cool hot rods to the outright fanciful. That’s also why Disney fans take so much joy in finding toy cars modeled after their favorite characters and theme parks.
