Do you have plans for this year’s Fourth of July? Walt Disney World is preparing to celebrate the holiday with entertainment, food, fireworks and more at Magic Kingdom and Epcot.
Check out the highlights of this year’s celebration below:
“Disney’s Celebrate America! A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky” will bring fireworks choreographed to patriotic music at Magic Kingdom park July 3-4 at 9:15 p.m. Fans who can’t make it to the park can catch the fireworks on a special live stream on July 4.
Other entertainment offerings for the occasion include “The Muppets Present… Great Moments in History,” performed several times daily in Liberty Square; and the Hoedown Throwdown in Frontierland, where DJs will spin tunes all night long. There will also be a Galactic Gathering in Tomorrowland.
Since “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” will end its near 20-year run on Sept. 30, this will be the last chance for guests to see the show’s Fourth of July grand finale. “The Heartbeat of Freedom” fireworks spectacular will start immediately after the 9 p.m. performance of “IllumiNations”.
Other Fourth of July offerings at Epcot include:
- The Voices of Liberty will perform a Fourth of July concert on the America Gardens Theatre stage at 5:30, 6:45, and 8 p.m. on July 4. The group will also perform inside The American Adventure pavilion at 2 and 3 p.m.
- Guests can meet Disney characters in their “Spirit of 76” attire at The American Adventure throughout the day on July 4.
- Themed snacks and drinks to honor Independence day will be found throughout the park, including patriotic cupcakes, special dining packages, Boom Berry Lemonade and a red, white, and blue sangria.
Disney Springs will also get in on the celebration with patriotic décor, and specialty food and beverage items will be available at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and select Walt Disney World Resorts.
