    I've been trying for several weeks to make reservations at Tomorrowland Terrace to view the fireworks on July 4. But July 3 and 4 have always been grayed out. Is it not open those days? Would love to watch the fireworks on the 4th there.

    Welcome back, Lynda! 

    I know you are looking forward to spending a fun-filled, patriotic day in the Magic Kingdom on 4th of July.

    In my opinion, Celebrate America! A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky, is hands down the best fireworks display of the year. I haven't missed this "salute" in four years, and will be there again this year, too. 

    This unique display will only light the sky on July 3rd & July 4th. Which is why you've been unable to book the Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party, it is unavailable on the days Celebrate America takes to the sky. You would not be able to take it all in from Tomorrowland Terrace anyway, it's that special. You'll want to be able to look up, look around, and even look behind you, not just at Cinderella Castle. 

    It will be business as usual on July 5th for regular bookings when the Happily Ever After fireworks display returns from its two day break. Happily Ever After will debut at Magic Kingdom on May 12th, so it will still be all-new during your visit - still making it a great opportunity for a dessert party. 

    I hope this helps to clarify, Lynda! And if I've piqued your interest regarding this very special fireworks show, let me know, I'd love to share with you fun ways my family likes to celebrate 4th of July at Walt Disney World® Resort. 

    Stars, Stripes and Disney Magic!
