    Hi! Are there any special events/fireworks planned for the 4th of July this year at any of the parks? Also, do you have any specific park recommendations for the 4th? Thank you!

    Hi Megan,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. Walt Disney World is always such a special place to be, and being there for a holiday brings extra magic!

    Although I am not aware of any official announcements regarding July 4 activities at Walt Disney World for this year, I would not be surprised if we see an announcement soon. The Disney Parks Blog announced Fourth of July activities for 2015 in late June of last year, so an announcement may be forthcoming. If you take a look at the post for special events last year, you can see that Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Disney's Hollywood Studios all offered special fireworks at night, with Magic Kingdom's also occurring on July 3. There were also some other special entertainment options during the day.

    If the same schedule occurs again, and you will be around both July 3 and 4, I would suggest checking out the Magic Kingdom's fireworks on July 3 and heading to one of the other Disney theme parks on July 4. This will allow you to experience two nights of amazing fireworks! I also feel that Magic Kingdom draws rather large crowds on holidays, and I find that I prefer being at one of the other parks with smaller crowds.

    I suggest that you monitor the Disney Parks Blog over the next couple of weeks for possible announcements regarding July 4th festivities at Walt Disney World.

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Megan. Have a wonderful time planning your vacation, and please do let us know if you have any further questions!
