4th of July: Capacity Crowds Expected at Magic Kingdom

Capacity crowds are to be expected at Magic Kingdom Park at the Walt Disney World Resort on Monday, July 4, as well as the entire weekend.

While the still-limited number of Park Guests Disney is allowing through the gates was assumed for Independence Day Weekend, official confirmation can be found on the Walt Disney World Resort website and the Theme Park Availability Calendar.

As of the publication of this article (Friday, July 1), every Theme Park Reservation to Magic Kingdom Park for Theme Park Ticketholders, Select Resort Hotel Guests, and Annual Passholders is booked beginning Saturday, July 2 through Tuesday, July 5.

While Theme Park Reservations for at least one Disney World Theme Park remain available for July 4, which will give those Guests with the Park Hopper option a chance to still get into the Magic Kingdom, consistent max capacity should be expected on both July 4 and July 3. We at Disney Fanatic would advise that all Guests looking to Park Hop into Magic Kingdom to see Fourth of July Fireworks Disney style to keep wishing upon a star, but prepare to be left out among other poor unfortunate souls.

Disney recently announced that its famous Fourth of July fireworks spectacular would finally return to the skies above Cinderella Castle for the first time since before the pandemic.

Titled “Disney’s Celebrate America — A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky,” Disney announced that there would be two showings of the 360-degree sensation: 9:20 pm on Sunday, July 3, and Monday, July 4. EPCOT will also host a fireworks show on World Showcase Lagoon at 9:00 pm on both nights, respectively.

The special show is described on the Walt Disney World website as the following:
