    Are they and special events or hotel cookout events on the fourth July this year aimed for families? I know in the past there was a cook out at the grand Floridian that you could purchase tickets for.

    Hi Henry!

    The Walt Disney World Resort has some fantastic events lined up for families to celebrate the Fourth of July this year. The Disney Parks Blog recently published an article highlighting 11 ways to enjoy Independence Day at Disney, and there's plenty to look forward to!

    First off, EPCOT is hosting a special fireworks show called “The Heartbeat of Freedom.” This spectacular display will follow their new nighttime fireworks show, Luminous “The Symphony of Us,” and is set to light up the sky on July 4 at 9 p.m. It's going to be a beautiful and patriotic addition to the evening!

    Over at Magic Kingdom Park, the celebrations are in full swing with DJ-led dance parties that promise fun for the whole family. And of course, no Fourth of July celebration would be complete without a stunning fireworks display. Magic Kingdom will be putting on a patriotic show that’s sure to amaze.

    If you're a foodie, you're in for a treat! Disney is rolling out special Fourth of July-themed food items across the parks. Keep an eye out for the July 4th Foodie Guide, which will be released on the Disney Parks Blog on June 25. It will have all the delicious details about what you can savor during the celebrations.

    Now, regarding the cookout at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, I can't confirm if it's happening this year. However, I highly recommend checking out their activities guide as the holiday approaches. They usually post all of their holiday events along with their regular resort activities in the lobby and you can ask the front desk for any specific special offers. It's a great way to stay updated and not miss out on any fun!

    I hope you and your family have an absolutely magical time celebrating the Fourth of July at Walt Disney World Resort!
