If you are coming to Orlando to celebrate our country’s Independence Day and enjoy the long weekend, we want to make sure you make the most of it and know what your options are!

Theme parks- All events below happen on the evening of July 4th:
Disney World: We have to be honest and take our hats off to Disney, because we have never seen better fireworks display then the ones Disney puts on for 4th of July. It’s absolutely incredible and will seriously leave you with a dropped jaw. Magic Kingdom has the “Disney’s Celebrate America! – A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky” that’ll start at 9 p.m. Epcot has the holiday-inspired “IllumiNations: Reflections of the Earth” that’ll start at 10 p.m. and Hollywood Studios will host a special July 4th fireworks presentation at at 10 p.m. All are included with regular park admission.

Universal Studios: They have a special version of their Universal 360: A Cinesphere Spectacular that is pretty cool. But if you are looking for fireworks, they’ll probably disappoint a little. Most of the show is done with projections and lasers. Fireworks are part of the show, but not the main focus. The show is included with regular park admission.

SeaWorld Orlando: They have their Summer Nights going on this time of year, so they offer a special Fourth of July Reflections show with a fireworks show that is themed with patriotic music. The show is included with regular park admission.



I-Drive 360: The weekend of 4th of July will be celebrated by The Orlando Eye and I-Drive 360 with events that include live entertainment and family-friendly activities throughout the weekend. The Eye will also have a 20-minute patriotic lighting show when the 400-foot observation wheel will be illuminated in red, white and blue starting at 9 p.m. each night (July 3-5). The event is free for spectators to watch, but admission tickets must be purchased to ride The Orlando Eye.
