In addition to the usual enhanced fireworks at Magic Kingdom and Epcot for the 4th of July, Disney-MGM Studios and Downtown Disney will be offering sparkling presentations in the sky as well.
MGM’s presentation will occur at 9pm followed by a single showing of Fantasmic! at 10:30pm. Park closing occurs at 10pm on the 4th of July.
Downtown Disney will offer fireworks at Midnight on the 4th, near the dockside stage in the Marketplace section.
Some park-savvy and planning could allow you to see all 4 fireworks presentations at WDW this year. Magic Kingdom will be offering their show on both the 3rd and 4th. On the 4th, if you start with MGM’s at 9pm then run (via International Gateway and the Epcot resorts) to hit Illuminations at 10pm, you have a fighting chance to make it to Downtown Disney by midnight to see their fireworks as well. Wear comfortable shoes.
