At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the “Coolest Summer Ever” Dance Party leads up to a “Rockin’ Fourth of July Celebration” fireworks show. Dance Party starts at 5:45, Rocking Fireworks start at 10:15 p.m. Fireworks show will only be held on July 4.
Epcot’s “Illuminations: Reflections of Earth” features a special finale to celebrate our Independence at 9 p.m. on July 3 and 4. Also, The Voices of Liberty perform a Fourth of July concert at the America Gardens Theatre at 12:30, 1:45, and 3 p.m., and in the American Adventure pavilion at 4:15 and 5 p.m. Special patriotic character greetings also are available at various times throughout the day.
Believe it or not, Universal Orlando does not do anything extra for 4th of July – something they haven’t done in a few years. The good news is that their nighttime show – Cinematic Spectacular – can still be enjoyed as the park closes at 10pm.
