    I did also see that Epcot will offer a special concert of Voices of Liberty on July 4th. Do they add anything special to illumiNations that night? I’m looking forward to MK fireworks on July 3rd and some of the magic shots in Liberty square!

      Jennifer,

      Illuminations does have a patriotic theme, but it starts off as the typical Illuminations show. I do wish they made it a little more Independence Day-inspired…especially with the American pavilion there!

    We’re going in September. Your crowd calendar has DHS as level 1 for Tuesday 9/4. Is this taking Toy Story land into account or just based on historical data?
