Earlier this week, we posted on the Flag Retreat Ceremony for Veterans Day.
In honor of Veterans Day, I bring you a snap shot of the Flag Retreat Ceremony from 1982 at the Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom. (Back then you just said Disney World since that was the only park open at the time.) And remember, I was using a Kodak Instamatic and wasn’t going for the professional look, so no judgments.
What is strange is that I still watch the Flag Retreat Ceremony from the same spot outside the Emporium 31 years later. Old habits die-hard.
I love the old Mickey Mouse balloons you can see in the picture. Sure, they popped really easily but they remind me of my childhood and make me smile.
Do you notice anything about the picture – besides the short shorts and that there are trees on Town Square? There aren’t any strollers anywhere to be found. I’m going to have to think about that for a while.
