Walt Disney World President Jeff Vahle is one of the only people to celebrate Independence Day at the parks this year.
The recently-promoted President observed a flag retreat at Magic Kingdom on Friday.
He posted the experience on Instagram.
The caption reads:
“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.”
Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom are opening for Passholder previews July 9th and 10th.
Those two parks officially reopen to the public July 11th. Epcot and Hollywood Studios reopen July 15th.
