    Will Magic Kingdom be open during the day on Fourth of July 2024? I know it says there will be fireworks at 9pm but it also says the park is not open that day?

    Happy Fourth of July, friend!

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for bringing us an excellent Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question. Oh boy! It sounds like you're celebrating the birth of our nation at The Most Magical Place on Earth this year. I'm thrilled to help you plan your perfectly patriotic Disney day!

    I'm very happy to share that, according to the Hours & Events Calendar, Magic Kingdom Park is open today from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Early theme park entry for eligible Disney Resort hotel Guests started at 7:30 a.m., so Independence Day has already kicked off Magic Kingdom Park! The real excitement will take place this evening, though, when "Disney's Celebrate America! A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky" illuminates the sky surrounding the theme park at 9:20 p.m. Eastern Time. Before this dazzling display, a DJ will be performing live at Cinderella Castle, pumping up the crowd before the star-spangled spectacular takes place!

    I'm sorry you received some misinformation about Magic Kingdom Park's operating hours today, but I'm pleased to share that the theme park is currently open and operational. A quick peek in the My Disney Experience mobile app reveals that attractions are up and running (and at the time of writing, wait times are surprisingly low!). Keep in mind that some theme park admission types do still require theme park reservations, and at this time, Magic Kingdom Park shows no remaining ticket availability for the day. However, I do hope you'll still be able to partake in the patriotism in the parks!

    I hope you've found this information helpful and I wish you a very happy Independence Day, my friend! If you have any additional vacation planning questions, you're always welcome to revisit us here at planDisney. We're here to help you make the most of your time at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Wishing you a magical holiday,
