Disney has decorated Main Street, U.S.A. at Magic Kingdom with patriotic bunting ahead of the 4th of July weekend.

4th of July Decorations

Bunting lines the railing of the Walt Disney World Railroad train station, facing the front entrance of the park.

The half-circle bunting is red, white, and blue, with white stars on the central blue stripe.

The buntings frame the platinum ‘100’ in front of the train station.

Inside the park, more bunting is on the Main Street, U.S.A. façades. Two pieces hang over the Chamber of Commerce entrance.

A row of small buntings is over the doors of City Hall, and one larger piece is above them.

There’s more bunting on the back of the Main Street, U.S.A. train station, too.

Three pieces of bunting are just below the American flag on Main Street Theater, where guests can meet Mickey Mouse.

The Main Street Confectionery is ready for the holiday with their own bunting. The Confectionery is currently offering 4th of July-themed treats and red, white, and blue popcorn at Kernel Kitchen.

As is the Emporium.

More bunting frames other Emporium doorways and window displays.

Many Main Street, U.S.A. façades are already topped with pseudo-American flags. They aren’t genuine flags with the correct number of stars and stripes so that the park doesn’t have to lower and raise them each day. The only genuine flag is in the Main Street hub, where the flag ceremony takes place.

Bunting hangs from the balconies of Uptown Jewelers and Crystal Arts.

4th of July at Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World guests can celebrate the 4th of July in multiple different ways across the resort. Magic Kingdom will have the annual “Disney’s Celebrate America! — A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky.” This fireworks spectacular will be performed at 9:20 p.m. on July 3 and July 4. The celebration returned last year after a hiatus due to COVID-19 with new narration. Watch last year’s “Disney’s Celebrate America! — A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky” below.

There will also be DJs throughout Magic Kingdom.

At EPCOT, the “Heartbeat of Freedom” tag will be performed at the end of “EPCOT Forever.” The tag was previously performed after “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” on Independence Day, and then was suspended for a few years due to COVID-19. Last year, it was performed after “Harmonious.” This will be the first (and potentially only) time it plays after “EPCOT Forever.”

A cappella group Voices of Liberty will also perform classic American songs in The American Adventure and Disney characters will appear at the pavilion in “Spirit of ’76” attire.

Fourth of July-inspired food items returning to Walt Disney World Resort this year include the Fourth of July Fruit Tart at Contempo Café in Disney’s Contemporary Resort and the Fourth of July Liege Waffle at Connections Café in EPCOT.
