Disney fireworks were created with the intent that all audiences, no matter where they’re viewing the skies, will each have their own unique view. Colors, projections and pyrotechnics all vary depending on your spot.

For Independence Day, the regular fireworks displays are transformed with the addition of star-spangled touches like patriotic pre-shows, special American tunes, and the pièce de résistance — an extraordinary show created just for the occasion. (Tip: if you can’t make it on the 4th, the same fireworks spectacular can be viewed on July 3rd!)

So, whether you’re planning a star-spangled 4th of July at Walt Disney World® Park Resort or just looking to enjoy from a different vantage point year-round, these less-frequented spots around Magic Kingdom® Park will ensure that you’ll have a spectacular and unique experience each time!
