Celebrate Independence Day with a boom at Orlando’s theme parks. Everyone knows the best way to celebrate the Fourth of July is with a firework display, and where better to catch some spectacular fireworks than at the Orlando theme parks?
Universal Studios Florida
If any theme park knows how to party, it’s Universal Studios Florida. With the many festivals and special events they throw throughout the year, it’s no wonder their Independence Day celebration is at the top of the list. Past years have seen character dance parties, live music, a dj, and to top it all off, a special presentation of their Cinematic Celebration complete with lasers, pyrotechnics, and state-of-the-art projections.
Walt Disney World
No one was as patriotic as Walt Disney and his theme parks know how to show it. Join Mickey, Minnie, and the gang for a special Fourth of July processional down Main Street at the Magic Kingdom. Then, settle in on July 3rd and 4th for Celebrate America – A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky. This show utilizes special perimeter fireworks, surrounding viewers in a breathtaking display.
Over at Epcot, meet some of America’s heroes over at the American Adventure Pavilion. You’ll have a chance to mingle with Ben Franklin, Betsy Ross, and some Disney friends decked out in patriotic outfits. Don’t forget to catch the Voices of Liberty in action inside the pavilion’s main building for some patriotic tunes.
Head on over to LEGOLAND for a patriotic spectacle with a twist. Guests will view the Red, Brick and Boom firework display with specialty glasses that turn the fireworks into flying LEGO bricks! This truly is a one-of-a-kind Fourth of July experience.
Disney Springs and City Walk
If the theme park crowds are a little daunting, you can celebrate the Fourth over at Universal CityWalk or Disney Springs. Take part in some of the special festivities held around both shopping and dining complexes.
