    We will be at Walt Disney World on July 4th this year. Are there any special events or fireworks shows and where is the best place to watch the fireworks outside Magic Kingdom?

    Hi Rick! Our family celebrated Independence Day in Magic Kingdom a couple of years ago. Traditionally, a 4th of July enhanced fireworks display takes place in Magic Kingdom. "Disney's Celebrate America: A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky" is a 360 degrees fireworks extravaganza presentation featuring patriotic music themed to spectacular pyrotechnics that ring throughout the park. The special Independence Day fireworks display is generally shown both July 3rd and July 4th in Magic Kingdom. If you choose to visit Magic Kingdom either day, I recommend planning on getting there as early as possible and spending the remainder of the day at the park. Magic Kingdom reaches capacity early in the day during special holiday events. If your leave the park, or arrive too late in the day, there is a chance you will not be able to get in to watch the show. In Epcot you may experience the "Voices of Liberty 4th of July Concert" in the America Gardens Theatre stage featuring the Spirit of America Fife & Drum Corps and several Disney characters. IllumiNations Reflections of Earth will feature a patriotic finale. In addition there is usually a fireworks display with a Rock N' Roll soundtrack at Disney's Hollywood Studios. In general I would recommend visiting Magic Kingdom on the third and either Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios on the fourth. For information on the best places to view Magic Kingdom fireworks from outside the theme park, read HERE. Enjoy these special Independence Day celebrations at the Walt Disney World Resort!
