“Actually, if you could see close in my eyes, the American flag is waving in both of them and up my spine is growing this red, white, and blue stripe,” – Walt Disney

Throughout his career, Walt Disney often expressed the pride he had in his country and this certainly shows through today at several attractions and entertainment offerings at Disney Parks. Attractions like Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln at Disneyland park, The Hall of Presidents at Magic Kingdom Park and The American Adventure at Epcot showcase some of the historic milestones our nation has overcome in the name of liberty.

In honor of Patriot Day, we’d like to present a special performance by the Spirit of America Fife & Drum Corps, which celebrates our nation’s quest for freedom at the American Adventure Pavilion at Epcot. Here they are performing “You’re a Grand Old Flag” and “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.”


  • I love fife and drum cores! They’re so cool even in 2011!I was so sad when the Boston Pops this year cut short the fife and drum core, along with the 1812 overture, for the 4th of July.

    Rock it, Spirit of America!

  • Thank you very much for posting this!
    God bless you guys at Disney, and God bless America!

  • God bless America! Thank you, Epcot!

  • What a wonderful and patriotic performance. Love The Battle Hymn of the Republic…His truth is marching on!

  • I love seeing them in person. The patriotic music brings tears to my eyes. Something inside of me is very patriotic! haha. Great job gentleman.
