4th July at Disney – Celebrating the Birth of America all week long!

As any American knows, the 4th of July is a big date in the Holiday calendar, and that of course means that Disney do their very best to make Walt Disney World Resort the best place on earth to be for that particular celebration of independence!

Independence Day

Not yet 250 years old, America has come a long way since its declaration of independence from Great Britain on the 4th of July 1776 and Disney are at the very top of the game when it comes to big fanfares, parties and celebrations!

As part of the ‘Limited Time Magic‘ initiative, the parks temporarily take on a whole host of short term activities based around important events and diary dates and of course Independence Day deserves a big show each day from July 1st through July 7th.

Expect each park to literally ripple with red, white and blue for the entire week, and not least each evening as the skies light up with a 14 minute patriotic firework display, specifically designed for this most special of holidays.
Celebrate America looks set to be a patriotic sky display like no other and runs on the 3rd and 4th of July at 9pm and the 1st, 2nd, 5th, 6th and 7th at 10pm over the special week of celebration inside the Magic Kingdom.

Expect to see your Disney favourites dressed in true patriotic costumes and lots of street performances and music from Disney favourites such as the Main Street Philharmonic.
If you want a special gift for friends back home, be sure to check out lots of Limited Time Magic mementos specially available during the week of celebrations!
