Looking for something different

We like to do something different on each trip. This year we are adding make a rope drop to our list. Yes, after all of our trips, we have never made a rope drop, so this year we are going to be at MK for the opening ceremony! I also remember reading something a few years ago about a flag lowering ceremony at 5:00 pm at MK. Maybe not as grand as the opening but still something to see. Does anyone know if they still do this?

Flag Retreat
Join us as the Security Color Guard conducts our daily ceremony.
Daily at 5:00pm
NP With the Main Street Philharmonic and Dapper Dans.
Length of show: 20 minutes

My hint is to get there about 4:50, grab a bench looking towards the train station, enjoy the show (which will be right in front of you), then stand up, turn around and watch as the flag is lowered. You will never forget it.

That's why we all love to go back to WDW after all those years!

This is on my list for next trip too - I can't believe we've never managed to at least stumble across it at one point or another in the decades we've been visiting. I think DH will really enjoy it!!
