Confirmed: Fourth of July Fireworks Returning This Year

The Walt Disney World Resort has confirmed that a beloved holiday fireworks spectacular will return to the skies over Cinderella Castle this year.

According to Disney World’s website, the Fourth of July Fireworks will be making their triumphant return at Magic Kingdom and EPCOT.

Titled “Disney’s Celebrate America — A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky,” Magic Kingdom’s annual special show is scheduled to go off at 9:20 pm on Sunday, July 3, and Monday, July 4.  Over at EPCOT, fireworks are set to go off at 9:00 pm on both days. However, it appears that no specific changes to the usual HarmonioUS Fireworks show have been released as of now.

Disney describes its Independence Day fireworks on its website as the following:

Prepare for patriotism at is finest when Walt Disney World Resort commemorates Independence Day in the skies above EPCOT and Magic Kingdom park!

Disney Fanatics looking to visit the Most Magical Place On Earth that weekend should also keep in mind that the normal Magic Kingdom Fireworks show, “Disney Enchantment,” will not be available on those two days.

Disney’s Celebrate America is just one of several seasonal firework spectaculars throughout the year, including Disney’s No So Spooky Spectacular during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, New Year’s Eve Fireworks, and Christmastime fireworks connected with Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party (last year featured “Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks”).
