Summer in Walt Disney World, a Festive 4th of July Celebration

Orlando Attractions magazine is reporting that 4th of July Events in Walt Disney World have been announced & each area of ‘the World’ is planning for a very red, white, & blue celebration. Each park, along with Downtown Disney, will feature a unique fireworks show, parade, or revamped patriotic version of their nightly entertainment. Disney’s Animal Kingdom park remains off the list, presumably not to disturb it’s animal population. Guests should note that the schedule is subject to change.

Magic Kingdom:
A Fourth of July “Concert in the Sky” will light up the night at Magic Kingdom in honor of Independence Day. Featuring a display of aerial fireworks, pyrotechnic effects and music, the show, entitled “Disney’s Celebrate America! – A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky,” is a tribute to the United States, its people and traditions. The special show is scheduled for 9 p.m.

A holiday-inspired finale will be added to Epcot’s nightly fireworks, “Illuminations: Reflections of Earth.” The park’s American Adventure pavilion also will feature enhanced entertainment throughout the day, with visits from historic characters who will share their stories. American Adventure also will feature additional performances of its signature musical group, Voices of Liberty, performing patriotic classics.

Hollywood Studios:
Disney’s Hollywood Studios will present a special July 4th fireworks show at 9 p.m., with skyrockets and patriotic music filling the air.

Downtown Disney:
Downtown Disney will present July 4th fireworks at 10:30 p.m.
