Review: Cookies & Cream Funnel Cake at Oasis Canteen in Walt Disney World

Oasis Canteen is an Indiana Jones-style snack spot where guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios can pick up funnel cakes, cold drinks, and floats. We love the design of the kiosk, with its industrial details and aged signs.

This moving Magic Kingdom experience requires no Fastpass+ — just a desire to participate in a formal flag lowering ceremony held at the Magic Kingdom flagpole in front of the Walt Disney Railroad Station. The ceremony includes fanfare by trumpets, the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, and the singing of God Bless America and the Star Spangled Banner accompanied by the philharmonic.

After the lowering and folding of the flag, a guest veteran is handed the flag and a short procession up Main Street, U.S.A., is accompanied by a medley of U.S. military songs. This event takes place daily, so check with Guest Services or the Times Guide to find out when to watch!
