Celebration is in full swing for the Fourth of July 2023 at Walt Disney World, with fireworks displays and DJ dance parties kicking things off tonight at Magic Kingdom. The festivities will continue tomorrow evening as well.

In addition to the fireworks display, DJ booths have been set up throughout the park to keep the energy up and the party going.
