In this special gesture of appreciation, you can expect the below via the Disney World website.
The pledge is said and trumpet fanfare sounds Retreat. The American flag lowers while the philharmonic plays the “Star Spangled Banner.” Members of the Color Guard remove the flag from the staff and fold it while Guests are lead in a chorus of “God Bless America.”
