    Is Disney doing anything special on July 4 this year? Thank you!

    Why hello there Whitney, and a most patriotic welcome to planDisney!

    Many flock to Walt Disney World Resort for their Fourth of July festivities and for many proud Americans, it's a time to celebrate with their loved ones at a place that celebrates the story and spirit of the nation in so many ways. While there hasn't been anything officially posted at the time of writing, here are a few examples from last year's roster of happenings that was released in late June to give you an idea of what you might be able to experience:

    • Special fireworks displays taking place at both Magic Kingdom Park (Disney’s Celebrate America! A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky) and EPCOT (Heartbeat of Freedom) are things that folks really look forward to, and you'll want to keep an eye on the Hours & Events Calendar to see whether the Fireworks & Nighttime Entertainment section is updated with showtimes.
    With so many things taking place, this does have a tendency to bring out many Floridian locals and vacationers alike so be prepared with a little extra patience should you find yourself among the crowds of folks and families there to celebrate! I recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for these announcements as they are released in the week or so leading up to July 4th, but you're absolutely welcome to come back to planDisney for any other tips or advice in the meantime!

    Here's to celebrating in style at the Most Magical Place on Earth!
