Universal Orlando Resort offers guests three exciting ways to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday. From an innovative lagoon show and extended theme park hours to summer foods and live entertainment, there’s something for all holiday revelers to enjoy.
At Universal Orlando Resort, visitors may take in a special version of Universal 360: A Cinesphere Spectacular, complete with patriotic finale and fireworks display. The show is included in regular park admission.
The Universal 360: A Cinesphere Spectacular is a high-tech lagoon show at Universal Studios Orlando featuring famous scenes from more than 100 Universal Pictures films. The show uses four-story-tall, 360-degree projection “cinespheres,” original music, outdoor speakers, lasers and pyrotechnic effects to place guests in the center of their favorite films. The Fourth of July Cinesphere show will also feature a special, high-tech, patriotic finale, complete with a dazzling fireworks display. The show begins at 10 p.m. and is included with Universal Studios park admission.
Home to the most innovative and technologically advanced rides and attractions, Universal’s Islands of Adventure will remain open until 11 p.m. for those guests wanting to experience extended theme park entertainment.
Additionally, guests can indulge in summer food favorites, a live band and street performers at an All-American Barbecue Celebration at Universal CityWalk from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. All CityWalk venues will also be open throughout the day.
The only fireworks display guests will be able to see will be at the conclusion of the Cinesphere show inside Universal Studios. Fireworks will no longer be visible from CityWalk or Universal’s Islands of Adventure. This is because development of new attraction experiences is underway across areas of the resort previously used to support fireworks displays.
