With just a couple of weeks to go until Memorial Day, patriotic bunting has been put up around the train station and Main Street, U.S.A. at Magic Kingdom.

Patriotic Bunting at Magic Kingdom

A group of people stand in front of the Main Street U.S.A. Train Station at a theme park, decorated with red, white, and blue patriotic banners, under an overcast sky.

The patriotic bunting can first be seen at the entrance of Magic Kingdom, on the railings of the Walt Disney World Railroad station. It comes in time for both Memorial Day on May 27 and the Fourth of July.

The bunting continues on the opposite side of the railroad station. The bunting itself is made up of semicircles in red, white, and blue, with white stars inside of the blue stripe. This is the same decor we have seen in the past. However, last year, the bunting didn’t go up until after Memorial Day, and just ahead of the Fourth of July.

Town Square Theater, where guests can meet Mickey Mouse, has two rows of bunting. It continues on the exterior of Tony’s Town Square Restaurant.

Both sides of Main Street, U.S.A. have gotten patriotic bunting, with the decor lining the Emporium and Main Street Confectionary.

Celebrating Fourth of July at Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World has a tradition of celebrating the Fourth of July across the parks, with fireworks shows at both Magic Kingdom and EPCOT. At Magic Kingdom, guests could watch Disney’s Celebrate America! — A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky. Over at EPCOT, the Heartbeat of Freedom Fireworks Tag has been added in honor of the occasion. So far, neither show has been confirmed for the 2024 season on the official Walt Disney World calendar.

You can watch both celebrations from 2023 below:
