    We are visiting Disney over the 4th of July. Where is the best place to celebrate the 4th?

    Hi Emily!

    I love being at Disney during a holiday---they do it up right! And Independence Day is no exception! (And yikes, it's only days away!)

    First of all, Magic Kingdom will have a special "Celebrate America" fireworks show at 9pm. Then, as a complement to Fantasmic, there will be a special rock-n-roll fireworks show at Hollywood Studios (9 & 10:30pm).

    Then, my favorite is at Epcot: Illuminations will have a special patriotic finale (10pm)! Also, the Voices of Liberty (along with the Fife & Drum Corp and some of your favorite characters) will be performing a special show at 12:30, 1:45 and 3 p.m. on the America Gardens Theatre stage. PLUS Betsy Ross and Benjamin Franklin will be storytelling and walking around the American Adventure.

    Oh, just typing all this is making me jealous that I'm not going to be there on the 4th! And I'm just guessing there will be even more fun magic that we haven't even heard about yet!
