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.

H20+ Skincare

H20+ Skincare

The Disney Company usually brings their A-game to everything they do, from their movies to their merchandise. The idea is that people will pay money for plenty of items, but even more people will pay even more money if those items are noticeably high-quality. This simple philosophy guided the company’s earliest artistic achievements, and the corporate behemoth of today still follows it.

When we say they do this for just about everything, we mean just about everything. If you’ve ever showered at a Disney hotel, you already know what we’re talking about. Here is some information on the bath amenities by a long-time Disney partner, H20+.

It's Time to Ditch the Screens and Play Some Disney Games Together!

It's Time to Ditch the Screens and Play Some Disney Games Together!

There's been a huge debate raging in the past two years about "screen time" — how much time children (and adults too, to an extent) should spend on digital devices. Teachers, psychologists, and doctors all seem to agree that spending too much time staring at a screen is detrimental. Unfortunately, it's not always easy to get kids (or adults; admit it!) to limit their screen time, but we have something that might help: Disney games!

Your WDW Store has some of the best Disney toys and games that are extra special because they're otherwise only available from Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and the related theme parks.

Winnie the Pooh and Friends Return This Summer with Christopher Robin

Winnie the Pooh and Friends Return This Summer with Christopher Robin

Since 1926, generations of children have enjoyed A.A. Milne's beloved stories of Winnie the Pooh, a small yellow teddy bear who lives with his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood: Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore, Kanga and Roo, Rabbit, and Owl, all but the last two of which are living stuffed toys. Their wisest friend, despite being a child, is Christopher Robin, a young boy who accompanies the characters on many of their adventures (and who was based on A.A. Milne's own son).

Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have another film to look forward to this summer, and we have to say it looks great.
