Fourth of July Celebrations at Walt Disney World Resort

Disney hasn’t yet released their Fourth of July plans yet, but historically, it has been a quite a party within the parks.

Magic Kingdom and EPCOT have both offered special fireworks shows on the Fourth of July in previous years. Magic Kingdom’s “Disney’s Celebrate America! A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky” featured a patriotic display of fireworks, lights, and music. The firework show was set to a musical score specifically created to stir a sense of pride in being American, while at the same time, inviting guests from around the world to feel part of the celebration.

Not just during the Fourth of July, but every day guests are invited to view the Flag Retreat which takes place at 5:00 p.m. on Main Street U.S.A. Here, guests can pledge allegiance to the flag and hear patriotic songs as the flag is lowered. A veteran is selected for the honor and guests who are interested in being part of the show can check with City Hall to see if availability is open.

During previous Fourth of July festivities, EPCOT’s Harmonious was also enhanced with a special “Heartbeat of Freedom” patriotic tag. This show returned in 2022 after a two-year hiatus. The finale featured fireworks launched from behind The American Adventure and barges in the lagoon for a major finale, offering a Salute to All World Showcase Nations, But Mostly America. This is a reference to the song headlined by Sam Eagle in Muppet Vision 3D, over in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Additionally in EPCOT, an afternoon of live entertainment was hosted at America Gardens Theatre with the Voices of Liberty, an eight-part acapella group. They performed on Independence Day three times throughout the evening. Disney Characters also dressed in Independence Day attire to meet guests during the day at The American Adventure.

There have also been plenty of Fourth of July-themed items to purchase at Walt Disney World Resort, including Minnie Mouse Ears, attire, and specialty food and beverages.
