With the 4th of July weekend upon us, many Americans will take some time to reflect on patriotism amid their barbecues, boats, and fireworks. New Walt Disney World President Jeff Vahle is no exception, as he took to Instagram to share a patriotic post honoring WDW’s security team ahead of the theme park’s reopening next week.

In his social media post, Vahle wrote, “I was honored to join our Magic Kingdom security Cast in retiring the colors during our daily Flag Retreat last night. I’m appreciative of everything our security team does to protect the Magic across our property, especially during these past several months. It was a special way to start the 4th of July weekend as we continue prepping to open our parks next week.”

Vahle shared several photos of his patriotic experience at Disney World, including  a striking one of him and the security Cast Members on an empty Main Street, U.S.A. in front of the newly renovated Cinderella Castle.

Vahle and the team of Cast Members who perform the Disney World Flag Retreat were practicing many of the Florida Disney park’s new protocols in the photograph. They were all wearing appropriate face masks and engaging in social distancing measures.

As Walt Disney World Resort continues to recall Cast Members at both theme parks and Disney resort hotels ahead of next week’s Annual Passholder preview days and public reopening, it is important for Guests to be mindful of changes to the Disney experience.

The entire Cast and executive team, including President Jeff Vahle, have shared that they have Guests’ best interests at heart so that Disney magic, including meaningful experiences like the Flag Retreat, can continue.
