    Hi! I am assuming that MK will be exceptionally busy on July 4th. I was just wondering about the other parks, downtown disney and the boardwalk area. We do have ADR in downtown disney on that day as well. Thanks for all you guys' help!!

    Hi Laura! Our family celebrated Independence Day at the Walt Disney World Resort a couple of years ago. If you choose to visit Magic Kingdom on either the 3rd or 4th of July, I recommend planning on getting there as early as possible and spending the remainder of the day at the park. Magic Kingdom reaches capacity early in the day during special holiday events. If you leave the park, or arrive too late in the day, there is a chance you will not be able to get in to watch the show. Traditionally, a 4th of July enhanced fireworks display takes place in Magic Kingdom. "Disney's Celebrate America: A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky" is a 360 degrees fireworks extravaganza presentation featuring patriotic music themed to spectacular pyrotechnics that ring throughout the park. The special Independence Day fireworks display is generally shown both July 3rd and July 4th in Magic Kingdom. In Epcot you may experience the "Voices of Liberty 4th of July Concert" in the America Gardens Theatre stage featuring the Spirit of America Fife & Drum Corps and several Disney characters. IllumiNations Reflections of Earth will feature a patriotic finale. In addition there is usually a fireworks display with a Rock N' Roll soundtrack at Disney's Hollywood Studios. In general, I would recommend visiting Magic Kingdom on the third and either Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios on the fourth. Alternatively, I would recommend making Advanced Dining Reservations outside of the theme parks. For example, if you book California Grill for dinner you'll have access to the observation deck at Disney's Contemporary Resort. Enjoy the special Independence Day celebrations at the Walt Disney World Resort!
