WDW: Magic Kingdom American Flag Raising in Town Square

This morning DisneyParks Blog shared a look into the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World where the daily raising and lowering of the flag in Town Square is still going on during the shut down.  Here is the DisneyParks video:

Even though Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., is temporarily closed, a team of essential Disney cast members is still on site, including the Disney Security team, which continues to raise and lower the American flag each day in Town Square at Magic Kingdom Park. Continuing that tradition is a reminder of the gratitude Americans have for veterans and active-duty military service members around the world. (Disney)
