Celebrate Independence at Walt Disney World
Walt Disney World is a magical year-round destination, but it’s especially exciting on the 4th of July. Fireworks explode across the Florida sky, and there are tons of celebrations at Disney’s famous theme parks. There’s no better place to celebrate American independence than Walt Disney World.
On this page, we highlight the best places to enjoy the Fourth of July at Walt Disney World Resort.
Fourth of July Fireworks at Walt Disney World
Every park at Walt Disney World has its own 4th of July firework display. Epcot, The Magic Kingdom, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios each offer something new and different.
Celebrate Freedom at the Magic Kingdom
At the Magic Kingdom, guests enjoy ‘Disney’s Celebrate America’ on both July 3rd and 4th. Often called a Concert in the Sky, Celebrate America draws a big crowd and has a classic Disney soundtrack. The fireworks seem to come from 360 degrees. It’s great to enjoy the fireworks on July 3rd, to avoid the biggest crowds.
Light up Epcot with The Heartbeat of Freedom
At Epcot, at 10 pm, guests experience a special 4th of July version of the IllumiNations. The Heartbeat of Freedom is a special mix of fireworks, water fountains, pyrotechnics, searchlights, and lasers. Like all the Illuminations shows at Epcot, The Heartbeat of Freedom, takes place above the World Showcase Lagoon. This is an amazing 4th of July show, with over 2000 shells launching from 32 barges.
See Star Wars Fireworks at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
On July 6th at 9:30 pm, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, guests can attend the brand new Fireworks show, Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular. This special event takes you to far away galaxy with a mix of Star Wars moments and stunning visuals.
