If you’re looking for the biggest bang for Independence Day, look no further than the theme parks at Walt Disney World where three fireworks shows are planned.
Magic Kingdom – “Celebrate America Fireworks” will fill the sky at 9 p.m. on both July 3 and July 4. Disney’s “Main Street Electrical Parade” will travel through the park at 10 p.m. on both nights and again at midnight on July 4. Park hours on July 4 are 8 a.m.-1 a.m.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios – This park does not normally feature a nightly fireworks show, so those looking for a unique display will find one here set to a rock ‘n’ roll soundtrack at 9:50 p.m. on July 4. Fantasmic will be performed at 9 and 10:30 p.m. Park hours on July 4 are 9 a.m. – 10 p.m.
Epcot – The nightly IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth show will take place as usual, but with a special patriotic finale. The performance will begin at 10 p.m. Other entertainment for the day includes the Voices of Liberty 4th of July Concert at 12:30, 1:45 and 3 p.m. on the America Gardens Theatre stage. Park hours on July 4 are 9 a.m.-10 p.m.
July 4th is always one of the busiest and most crowded days of the year at Orlando’s theme parks, so if you want to enjoy the shows, it’s recommended to get there early and be prepared for long lines.
