Celebrating Disney - America Style

Welcome to those of you joining me from Walt Disney World: Not Just for Kids and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 2nd stop on our Magical Blogorail Green Loop.

Walt Disney loved America.  He was incredibly Patriotic.  He tried as hard as possible to enlist in the military for World War I, but he wasn't of age.  He even tried to forge his birth certificate to appear older, but his mother nixed that.  In World War II, The Disney Studios were taken over as a base by troops and he worked hard making propaganda films for the U.S. government and military.

Now at Walt Disney World, his American spirit still lives on in so many ways.  One of my favorite examples is showcased at the American Adventure Epcot's World Showcase.

My military duty station is home to the U.S. Army Fife and Drum Corps.

But, Epcot is home to The Spirit of America Fife and Drum Corps -

This small fife and drum corps celebrates The Fourth of July every day for thousands of people.  They have an amazing spirit and are so enjoyable to watch!

They come out, march around and do a few tunes, and then sing a few patriotic songs.  It's a great experience.  Even my son at 18 months joined in the patriotism!

There are so many ways to celebrate America at Walt Disney World, but this is one of my favorites!

Thank you for joining me today. Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is Disney Living.
