Spectacular Ways to Celebrate the Fourth of July at Disney World

by Mommy Frog on June 27, 2019 1 Orlando

4th of July at Disney World - Fourth of July at Magic KingdomU-S-A! U-S-A! The Fourth of July is a Frog Family favorite. Around our frog pond, we put up an American flag, break out the hot dogs (mustard, no ketchup) and are treated to Leap's backyard fireworks display (all of which are purchased and shot legally, of course). As fine as Leap's Fourth of July fireworks display is, it's simply not as dazzling as the festivities on the Fourth of July at Disney World (even when it's not the holiday).

If you're going to be at Disney World this Fourth of July — LUCKY YOU! — there will be tons of ways to celebrate America's independence. If you're planning a trip around the Fourth of July, know that there are always special celebrations and fireworks at Disney World to mark the occasion.

Spectacular Ways to Celebrate Fourth of July at Disney World

Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom celebrates the stars and stripes with "Disney's Celebrate America! A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky" on July 3 and July 4. This 14-minute fireworks show set to a concert band-style musical score that includes patriotic tunes takes place at 9:15 p.m. If you can't join in person, Disney will be live streaming the show July 4 on Disney Parks Blog. Happily Ever After, the nighttime spectacular featuring Disney characters projected onto Cinderella Castle, is currently not scheduled afterwards, but you can catch it the days before and after. You can also join special DJ dance parties in Frontierland and Tomorrowland.

4th of July at Disney World - Muppets History

As for other events, it's your patriotic duty to attend The Muppets Present … Great Moments in American History. All of your favorite Muppets, including Miss Piggy, Kermit and Fozzie Bear, reenact famous moments in American history in a whimsical way. The live show is performed several times daily near the Hall of Presidents in Liberty Square.


Fourth of July at Disney World - Mickey, Goofy and Donald Patriotic

Snap a patriotic selfie with one of your Disney pals who will be dressed up in their best "Spirit of '76" attire throughout the day at the American Adventure Pavilion. Keep an eye out for special holiday treats and drinks, including red, white and blue sangria and Boom Berry Lemonade.

One of our Fourth of July Disney World traditions includes hearing the Voices of Liberty a cappella group. To be fair, seeing is this group is a tradition every time our webbed feet step into Epcot. These AMAZING performers will hold performances at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. in the rotunda inside The American Adventure on  July 4. But at 5:30 p.m., 6:45 p.m. and 8 p.m., they will have special performances at the America Gardens Theatre.

With IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth ending its run on Sept. 30, this year will mark the last time to see the Fourth of July grand finale of this nighttime spectacular. "The Heartbeat of Freedom" fireworks will begin immediately following the 9 p.m. show.

Disney's Hollywood Studios

4th of July at Disney World - Disneys Hollywood Studios Star Wars

Baseball. Apple Pie. Luke Skywalker. It is useless to resist. "Star Wars" is one of the greatest contributions to American pop culture since Mickey himself. Celebrate this accomplishment by seeing Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This one-of-a-kind show takes to the sky at 9:30 p.m.

Disney's Animal Kingdom

Fourth of July at Disney World - Disney's Animal Kingdom - Rivers of Light

While it won't focus on the stars and stripes, Rivers of Light: We Are One is another way to get your fireworks fix on the Fourth. The show celebrates a connection between mankind and nature, featuring footage from Disneynature and classic moments from animal-inspired Disney animated films, including "The Lion King." This spectacle has two showings nightly, 9 p.m. and 10 p.m.

No matter where you are celebrating the Fourth of July, we hope it's with your family and loved ones!
