Disney World is the best place to celebrate any occasion. Nobody pulls off July Fourth celebrations like Walt Disney World. If you are going to be in Disney next week here are all the ways you can celebrate in your red, white and blue.
We love being in Walt Disney World for the holidays. Disney really pulls out all the stops to take a celebration to the next level. This is no exception for the Fourth of July. You will see parades, fireworks and events unlike the rest of the days of the year at Disney.
Personally my favorite park to be in on July 4 is Epcot, they have fantastic events all day. From special characters; to live music and a grand fireworks display if I can’t be at home I want to be in Epcot.

If you are looking for a cookout on July 4 make a reservation for Mickey’s Backyard Barbecue at Fort Wilderness.

We love going here as it has live country music, dancing and a few character appearances. Mickey’s Backyard Barbecue is a classic taste of americana at Disney World.
