Feel the Florida sun on your skin, smell the chlorine from long pool days or the salt water from beach days, and savor the delightful aromas of a juicy, freshly grilled burger or hot dog. The 4th of July in Orlando is an excellent opportunity to celebrate America’s Independence with family and friends! Many of Orlando’s most well-known amusement parks, including Walt Disney World®, SeaWorld®, Universal Orlando™, and LEGOLAND® are organizing Fourth of July celebrations. The city has also scheduled several events, including concerts, parades, and fireworks. Both children and adults will be impressed by Orlando’s wow factor.
Celebrate in your vacation home
You just cannot have a Fourth of July celebration without a barbecue. Hamburgers, hotdogs, kebabs, brats, ribs, corn on the cob – everything and everything must be grilled. The majority of our vacation rentals have your own BBQ grill on the patio.
Summers in Florida may become quite hot very quickly. What’s the greatest method to cool down? The swimming pool! You and your family may relax by the pool and soak up the rays. If you want to have additional fun outside of your vacation home, visit your community clubhouse. Many of the communities feature lovely resort facilities in the clubhouse. For example, the Retreat at ChampionsGate includes a lazy river where you may unwind while sunbathing on a pool tube!
Take advantage of our vacation rentals’ in-home movie theaters and have a movie day! Hang out and nibble all day while watching only patriotic movies like ‘Independence Day’ (1996), ‘Air Force One’ (1997), ‘The Patriot’ (2000), or even ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ (2011).
Celebrate in the Theme Parks
Walt Disney World®
Celebrate the Fourth of July with an amazing Disney Enchantment Fireworks Show at Magic Kingdom®, fireworks explode and light up the Cinderella’s Castle, or enjoy Harmonious at the World Showcase Lagoon in EPCOT®! You won’t want to miss this one-of-a-kind tribute to the stars and stripes of American history.
When it comes to putting up spectacular events, Universal Orlando™ does not hold back. Enjoy the thrills, eat delicious foods, and wander around the grounds of Universal and City Walk, but don’t miss the nightly entertainment at both Islands of Adventure™ and Universal Studios™.
SeaWorld® Orlando hosts four evenings of fireworks this Fourth of July weekend! Bring your family and friends for nightly celebrations from Friday, July 1 to Monday, July 4, depending on the weather. Every night will feature the “Ignite 360” fireworks extravaganza, followed by a patriotic fireworks finale that SeaWorld® guests have come to expect for years!
The fireworks displays may be seen from everywhere on SeaWorld’s massive central lake, including the Orca Encounter Pathway, The Waterfront, and Bayside Stadium.
End your day at LEGOLAND® by watching the sky fill with breathtaking fireworks. Get there early to watch the sunset over lovely Lake Eloise before the concert begins! Make sure to pick yourself a set of specialized viewing glasses on your walk to your seat for an even more brick-tastic experience, as these glasses transform explosions into what look to be LEGO® bricks!
