Are you wondering about special 4th of July celebrations and Fireworks at the Walt Disney World Resort and theme parks in Orlando, FL?

From Steve Soares website:

Fourth of July at Magic Kingdom:

Celebrate America Fireworks will fill the sky at 9 p.m. July 4 (guests who’d like to begin the celebratory weekend a day early can enjoy the special fireworks on July 3 at 9 p.m.). After the fireworks, guests can enjoy a performance of Disney’s “SpectroMagic” parade of lights, music and magic at 10:30 p.m. on July 3-4. Park hours are 9 a.m.-11 p.m. July 3-4.”

Tip:  If you can choose between seeing the Magic Kingdom fireworks on July 3rd or 4th,  definitely go to the Magic Kingdom on July 3rd.   The Disney’s Magic Kingdom theme park always draws big crowds on national holidays – some years the park even closes to capacity.  That’s just too many hot, sweaty tourists in the same place to be fun!

Fourth of July at Disney’s Hollywood Studios:

The show Fantasmic! will be offered twice on Independence Day – at 9:00PM & 10:45PM.  TIP: The second show will be less crowded so plan to see that one, if that doesn’t make too late a night for your family.

There will also be a July 4th Fireworks presentation at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at 10:00PM.

Fourth of July at Epcot:

The nightly IllumiNations fireworks display will have a special Independance day finale.

TIP: Remember that the Walt Disney World Resort will have some of the highest crowd levels of the summer season this week.   Arrive a bit before park opening to take advantage of the lowest crowds of the day.  Also, avoid any park hosting an “Extra Magic Hours” – it’ll definitely be the most crowded park of the day.  You’ll have a better time at a relatively less crowded park.   See our July newsletter for more tips: https://buildabettermousetrip.wordpress.com/2009/04/12/walt-disney-world-resort-in-july-crowd-warnings-promotions-ride-refurbishments-and-special-events/
