Celebrate 4th Of July In The Town That Disney Developed

Celebration, Florida is a town that was originally developed by the Walt Disney Company.  Celebration is a charming small town with tree lined streets, captivating architecture and a welcoming mix of shops and restaurants. We’ve mentioned here how it hosts many events during the year, including 4th of July.

This year, Celebration will be hosting an Independence Day Parade, at 9:00am Walt Disney World time.   The parade will commence at Town Hall, travelling up Celebration Ave, concluding on Front St near Lakeside Park.

While there are no scheduled fireworks or activities in Celebration during the evening, there are plenty of local options if you want to catch the painting of the night sky.

Theme Parks are always a popular holiday choice, during both the day and the evening.

The Walt Disney World Resort will be offering special holiday themed fireworks in the Magic Kingdom, EPCOT and Hollywood Studios, with the Magic Kingdom offering their patriotic salute on July 3 and 4. LEGOLAND and SeaWorld will also be offering special pyrotechnic displays.

If the theme park setting is not necessarily your thing, the city of Kissimmee will once again be offering their concert and fireworks display at Lakefront Park. Other area options include, on July 3: Red Hot & Boom in Altamonte Springs, Baldwin Park Independence Bash and Freedom on the Waterfront in Mount Dora. July 4 also brings a plethora of viewing platforms, including: Lake Eola Park in Orlando, Red White and Boom in Clermont and the Star Spangled Spectacular in Sanford.
