Feeling somewhat refreshed, we caught our second wind and headed to Pioneer Square for some breakfast and prime viewing of the dance party going on in Main Street. After such an eventful day, we realized it was 5:30am. We began to hear families all around us cheering each other on – just 30 more minutes! The Main Street dance party came to an official close, and the fourth showing of “The Magic, the Memories, and You” projected on the castle.

Since I knew that my family was still over 30 minutes away, and I was beginning to draw suspicion from the families around me, I decided to jump out of line and head over to this “roller coaster” I have seen for years, but refused to ride because I, in my best guess, knew it would be terrible.

Today’s Terrific Tip comes from my good friends over at the podcast “Tales from the Mouse House.” I learned the tip below and so much more by listening to their podcast.
Did you know that if you are currently serving on active duty or are a veteran of any branch of the U.S. military you can participate in the Flag Retreat Ceremony at Disneyland? Held daily on Main Street U.S.A., the flag retreat ceremony is an emotionally inspiring event for all to see. Guests that are interested in participating in the event should visit City Hall near the entrance to Disneyland. The ceremony typically lasts 20 minutes and takes place daily around 4:30p.m. (Check the show schedule for the exact time.) The Flag retreat has a live band five days per week, except during summer when Disneyland’s All-American College Band performs, which then provides the Flag Retreat Ceremony live music seven days per week. The Dapper Dans also participate in the ceremony five days per week. (When necessary, the Resort uses a recorded version of this experience for the ceremony.)
