If you’re in Orlando over the Fourth of July weekend, here’s how you can get involved in the celebrations for the USA’s biggest event of the year!

The most patriotic weekend of the year is coming up and American’s know how to celebrate it in style. If you’re in Orlando over the holiday weekend and have tickets to any of the top theme parks, you’ll be in for a treat with exclusive entertainment, food, decorations and, of course, fireworks. 

Here’s just some of what you can expect to help you plan your weekend - some of the celebrations are even on for multiple days so you can experience as much as possible! 

 

Walt Disney World Resort 

The Fourth of July in Walt Disney World Resort means one thing; food! Whether you’re in the theme parks, at Disney Springs, or chilling in one of the Resort hotels, there will be red, white and blue treats sure to spark your taste buds. Here are just some of the dishes that we would love to try! 

  • Berry Shortcake: shortcake topped with berries and cream (available from Columbia Harbour House July 1st through 4th) 
  • Fourth of July Lunch Box Tart: cherry pie filling, vanilla fondant and star sprinkles (available from Woody’s Lunch Box July 1st through 4th)
  • Cheeseburger Poutine: french fries, ground beef, cheese sauce, bacon, lettuce, tomato, pickles, ketchup and mustard (available from The Daily Poutine June 29th through July 31st) 
  • Fourth of July Fruit Tart: blackberry custard topped with fresh berries and a vanilla panna cotta popsicle (available from Contempo Cafe from July 1st through 4th) 
  • Stars and Stripes: Bacardi raspberry rum blended with coconut, pineapple and raspberry puree topped with blue curaçao (available at various pool bars and lounges from July 1st through 4th)

You can also expect a spectacular fireworks display in Magic Kingdom Park on July 3rd and 4th that will light up the skies above Cinderella Castle. And, while nothing has been announced yet, in previous years there have been some exciting and exclusive character meet and greets throughout the parks so keep an eye out because you never know who you might see!

Legoland Florida 

From July 2nd - 4th, the Red, White and BOOM celebrations are included in all admission tickets at Legoland Florida. As the sun sets, take your seat at Lake Eloise for a fireworks display like no other as special glasses turn each firework into an explosion of LEGO bricks! 

 

Universal Orlando Resort 

Unlike the other theme parks, Universal Orlando’s celebrations will be for one day only on July 4th itself but you’ll be in for an evening full of entertainment and fun. Beginning at 5pm until park close at 9pm, the streets of Universal Studios Florida will be packed full of live performers, DJs, character meet and greets, stilt-wakers and more, surrounded by red, white and blue decorations. 

Then at the end of the night the festivities will conclude with a fireworks display that can be seen all throughout the park!

SeaWorld Orlando 

There is a whole summer of celebrations happening at SeaWorld, with Electric Ocean turning the park into a party every single night! But from July 1st to 4th there will be a weekend full of even more festivities! After the Ignite 360 fireworks display there will be a patriotic finale featuring even more fireworks, lasers and fountains! 

The Electric Ocean food stalls will also be open for you to enjoy some delicious sweet and savoury treats, like pretzels, beignets, empanadas and churros, as well as cocktails and craft beers.
