Walt Disney World to Celebrate the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Unit

We have exciting news about a special celebration scheduled to take place at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.  This year is the centennial year for the U. S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Unit, and they will receive their own special celebration to commemorate this momentous occasion.  The fun is all scheduled to go down on August 10th, 2017 at Magic Kingdom theme park.  The division was founded during World War I, and the 82nd Airborne Division will be in Orlando for a special convention in the city to commemorate the centennial anniversary.

Here are the events scheduled as part of the special celebration:

  • The 82nd Airborne Division has a 16-member chorus who will perform in the Liberty Square area of the theme park at 1:45 PM.
  • The 82nd Airborne Division also has a brass quintet that will perform various patriotic music for guests in the Town Square area at 4 PM.  This performance is expected to last around 15 minutes.
  • There will be a special American flag retreat ceremony in the Town Square area of the park at 5 PM.

This is such a special way to pay tribute to this amazing celebration for our U. S. Army.  Who will be at the park on August 10th to enjoy this amazing celebration?

Thank you to all that have, do and will serve our great country, as well as their families!


About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
