June 3, 2024

When you think of the 4th of July, do barbecues, fireworks and parades come to mind? Then Walt Disney World Resort is the place for you, plus you can experience these American favorites year-round!

But, things get extra patriotic on Independence Day. Here are our top 4 Reasons (plus a few extras) to Visit Walt Disney World on the 4th of July.

Celebrate 4th of July on Main Street, U.S.A.

Main Street, U.S.A. - You can't help but smile when you enter Walt Disney World Park and arrive in Main Street, U.S.A., the most charming turn-of-the-century town you've ever seen.

Main Street U.S.A. celebrates America with horse-drawn streetcar and vintage vehicle rides, the Walt Disney World Railroad, classic cafes serving Coca-Cola floats, quaint shops and the Main Street Cinema.

Be sure to check out Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. History comes to life with one of America's most beloved presidents in The Walt Disney World Story presenting Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. One of the most realistic animatronics and incredible audio make you feel like you are in Honest Abe's presence as he shares stories of his life and visions for the future. You will leave uplifted and inspired.

Also on Main Street each evening is the Flag Retreat Ceremony. You won’t want to miss it, especially on the 4th. Check the My Disney Experience app under entertainment so you can time it just right.
