Here is what Disney World has planned for the 2010 4th Of July:
The Magic Kingdom will be open from 8:00 am - 1:00 am. At 9:00 pm you will be treated to the "Celebrate America Fireworks" which is a special fireworks display with a patriotic flair that can only be seen on the 4th of July. Afterwards you can enjoy the 10:00 pm "Main Street Electrical Parade" that is filled with lights, music, and plenty of teh famous Disney Magic as Tinkerbell leads the way.
Disney's Hollywood Studios
There is a special treat for those who are spending their Independence Day at Disney's Hollywood Studios. A special fireworks display synchonized with a rock 'n' roll soundtrack will be presented at 9:50 pm. Fireworks are not usually shown here so this is a special treat.
"Fantasmic!" will be shown twice, with spellbinding shows at 9:00 pm and 10:30 pm. Park hours for the day are 9:00 am - 10:00 pm.
Not to be outdone Epcot also has big plans for those looking to celebrate the 4th of July. The night time spectacular “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth,” which already includes lasers, fire, water effects, and of course fireworks, becomes bigger and better for the 4th of July. A patriotic musical score is synchonized with the effects to add a special finale to the already impressive show. This all happens at 10:00 pm.
Before you get to the fireworks there is plenty more to enjoy during the day including:
- Voices of Liberty 4th of July Concert – featuring an expanded cast of singers plus the Spirit of America Fife and Drum Corps and Disney characters – at 12:30, 1:45 and 3 p.m. on the America Gardens Theatre stage.
- Betsy Ross will be engaging guests inside The American Adventure with storytelling
- Ben Franklin will be making appearances on the promenade near the attraction.
Celebrate 4th Of July At Disney World
Although you can see fireworks every night at Disney World, the 4th of July is bigger and better as only Disney can do it. The hardest decision is choosing which park to enjoy it from! You could even catch the Epcot fireworks from Disney's Boardwalk like the picture above. The choice is up to you.
