Heartbeat of Freedom Fireworks Returning to EPCOT for 4th of July


It’s hard to believe that the 4th of July is just around the corner. If you are planning on spending the holiday at or near Walt Disney World, we have good news: the sensational patriotic fireworks display, “The Heartbeat of Freedom,” is making a grand return to EPCOT for this year’s Fourth of July celebrations. This spectacular event is set to follow “Luminous: The Symphony of Us,” creating an unforgettable evening of lights, music, and patriotism.

Double the Celebrations

Disney has confirmed The Heartbeat of Freedom will light up the sky on both July 3 and July 4, with performances starting at 9 p.m. Traditionally, this EPCOT show only graces the skies on the Fourth of July itself. This change aligns EPCOT with the Magic Kingdom’s customary two-night celebration, where guests have enjoyed Fourth of July fireworks on both July 3 and 4.

Plan Your Visit

For those planning to experience this spectacular event, it’s wise to arrive early. The Fourth of July is one of the busiest times at Walt Disney World, and prime viewing spots fill up quickly. Consider securing a spot near the World Showcase Lagoon for the best views of both “Luminous: The Symphony of Us” and “The Heartbeat of Freedom.”
