Will you be at Walt Disney World over the 4th of July? If you are, you’re in for a real treat! Check out the line up of 4th of July Festivities that Walt Disney Resort has in store for you.

Magic Kingdom

A favorite among guests- Disney’s Celebrate America – A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky fireworks show is, by far, the best fireworks display Disney has to offer!

  • July 3rd at 9:15 pm
  • July 4th at 9:15 pm

Dance parties will be held in Frontierland and Tomorrowland on July 3 and July 4.

The Muppets Present…Great Moments in American History. Join Miss Piggy, Kermit, Fozzie Bear and friends for hysterical, historical sketches and song. The live show is performed daily in Liberty Square.


IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth with special July 4 finale at 9 PM on July 4. The perennial “kiss goodnight” at Epcot will include a special fireworks finale that paints the sky red, white and blue.

Voices of Liberty will perform across from the American Pavilion at the American Gardens Theater stage in the World Showcase. Costumed in finery from the 1800s, Voices of Liberty is an exceptionally talented choir of a cappella singers. This beloved 8-member group stirs hearts and lifts emotions with each performance.

Meet your favorite Disney pals all decked out in their best red, white, and blue outfits to celebrate Independence Day! You can find them throughout the day at the American Adventure Pavilion.

Select theme parks and resorts will offer exclusive dessert items in honor of Independence Day.

Examples include:

  • A sparkly red-white-and-blue coconut macaroon dipped in white chocolate at BoardWalk Bakery at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort.
  • Patriotic dipped strawberries and Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse mini-domes at Amorette’s at Disney Springs.

Please keep in mind the 4th of July holiday is one of the busiest times of the year. It’s best to arrive early and expect to stay throughout the night. The parks will reach capacity and Guests will not be able to enter. Disney Resort Guests will be able to enter the parks, it just may not be the park of your choice if it gets too busy.
