We love watching fireworks! We believe that there is no better place to watch them than in the Orlando area. Our go to place to watch them is Disney’s Magic Kingdom. You can see the same show on July 3rd & 4th!
But…before we get into more specifics about the fireworks, we wanted to touch on what this Independence Day really represents.
On July 4th in 1776, the Second Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence. This historical document severed all ties with Great Britain, thus establishing many of our Nation’s “Principles of Freedom” including – Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Thomas Jefferson was the main author, but of these delegates on his committee also contributed: John Adams, Ben Franklin, Robert Livingston and Roger Sherman.
Now back to the fireworks. How are the Disney World 4th of July crowds? There are a lot of people in the Park on both days. Although, you can avoid the large crowds and still see the show. The Magic Kingdom’s parking and transportation area has a great view. You will have to pay to park there if you don’t have annual passes.
But…you may be thinking ” I want to hear the music that goes along with the fireworks”. Then head over to one of the Disney resorts or restaurants that pipe in the music while you watch. Grab some food or drink from the Grand Floridian, Polynesian Boardwalk. These locations make you feel like you are standing right in front of Cinderella’s Castle (without the crowd). Remember that parking restrictions will apply.
Many of us get together with family or friends and make a whole day of it. We like to swim, play games and barbecue before we go watch the fireworks. Others (when it’s legal of course) will buy the fireworks and watch them go off in their back yard.
There are so many places in Orlando to watch fireworks! Below is a sample of some of the these.
