All four Walt Disney World theme parks present special shows to mark July 4. Most notable perhaps are the celebrations at the Magic Kingdom presenting SpectroMagic (lighted parade) and Disney’s Celebrate America! A Fourth of July Concert In The Sky on July 4. Incidentally, the park’s Audio-Animatronics figure of President Barack Obama is currently slated to be in place at the park’s Hall of Presidents “in early July,” according to Disney, so it could be that it is available to be viewed on the Fourth. For its part, Epcot presents a special holiday fireworks display along with its laser/music/fireworks spectacular, IllumiNations on July 4. The festivities are included in park admission.
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 magnificent display of aerial fireworks, dazzling pyrotechnic effects and dynamic music, the show, entitled “Disney’s Celebrate America!-A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky,” is a grand tribute to the United States, its people and traditions. The special show is scheduled for 9 p.m. Magic Kingdom also will feature two performances of the “SpectroMagic” nighttime parade, first at 10:30 p.m. and then again at 12:30 a.m. that same night.
A holiday-inspired finale will be added to Epcot’s nightly fireworks extravaganza, “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.
Disney’s 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 at the showbiz-themed park. The park’s popular “Fantasmac!”
show, featuring fireworks, animation, dancing waters and Disney characters, will be presented on July 4 at 10:30 pm.
Downtown Disney: Downtown Disney will present July 4th fireworks at 10:30 p.m. for the revelers, shoppers and diners enjoying the nighttime entertainment district.
