A Historic Tribute

Dating back to the World War I service of Walt and Roy Disney, the Disney family has always held a deep respect and admiration for the military.

Weather permitting, the flyover will occur around 10:30 a.m., providing an unforgettable and inspiring moment for all in attendance. Guests at Magic Kingdom Park and select Disney Resort hotels in the Magic Kingdom resort area will have the opportunity to witness this touching tribute firsthand.

“Disney’s Celebrate America! – A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky”

In addition to the military flyover, Magic Kingdom has prepared an evening of enchantment to celebrate Independence Day. On both July 3rd and 4th, guests will be treated to “Disney’s Celebrate America! – A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky.” Starting at 9:20 p.m., this mesmerizing fireworks extravaganza will illuminate the night sky with dazzling colors and synchronized pyrotechnics, set to a patriotic soundtrack that will tug at your heartstrings. Prepare to be captivated as the breathtaking display lights up the Magic Kingdom in a symphony of light and sound.

To add an extra dose of excitement to the celebrations, Magic Kingdom will host DJ parties throughout the park on July 3rd and 4th. Immerse yourself in the upbeat music and infectious energy as DJs spin popular tunes, creating a lively and festive atmosphere that will have you dancing and grooving alongside Mickey and his pals. It’s the perfect way to keep the festivities going while awaiting the nighttime fireworks spectacle.
