Start with the Parks
There is so much going on at the theme parks here in Orlando, that we just don’t have the space to list them all, but we are definitely going to give it our best shot! Starting with LEGOLAND, every child’s dream park and every parent’s nightmare when it comes to the little plastic pieces they step on in the middle of the night, the celebration lasts from July 2 through July 4th! Their Red, White, and Boom celebration involves patriotic treats, activities, and a DJ dance party that you and your family just won’t be able to stay off the dance floor! Their fireworks finale will explode into LEGO bricks in a display you will never forget. Disney, as you can imagine, offers multiple ways to celebrate, including their Hall of Presidents at Magic Kingdom where the seemingly lifelike animatronic presidents will tell about the part they played in America’s history! EPCOT provides Disney characters dressed up in patriotic clothing at the American Adventure and the biggest celebration of all, Disney’s Celebrate America! A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky takes place July 3rd and 4th offering a fireworks display that lasts for 14 minutes! SeaWorld and Universal Orlando also are planning their own 4th of July celebrations featuring live entertainment and fireworks, ensuring that whichever park you want to visit, your entire traveling party will be able to celebrate in the most fantastic of ways!
Fireworks at the Fountain, Lake Eola Park Downtown Orlando
Your holiday traditions, however, may revolve around family picnics and fireworks in the park, and well, as you might expect, Orlando offers its own 4th of July adventures outside the parks! The Fireworks at the Fountain show is one of our most popular traditions, beginning at 4 PM, offers games, entertainment, food, and the opportunity to enjoy an old-fashioned picnic in the park. At 9:15, the attention will be focused on the sky, as colorful explosions bring out the oohs and ahhs as a live patriotic performance syncs with the big booms!
