in Disney, Disneyland Resort, Theme Parks

It’s that time of year again– the time to honor the history of the United States of America with Independence Day celebrations around the country. Last week we revealed what guests can expect during the national holiday at Walt Disney World in Florida, so today let’s take a look at the west coast version– Disneyland Resort.

Throughout this week, leading up to the 4th of July, Disneyland will host special performances by the United States Air Force Honor Guard, the United States Army National Guard Band, and the 191st and the 300th Army Band. The groups will pop up in various locations around the resort, so keep your eyes peeled if you’re visiting for the holiday. Or follow the schedule below if you want to seek them out:

June 28 – July 1: The United States Air Force Honor Guard out of Washington, D.C.
