Focus on Holiday Fun at the Theme Parks
Orlando is known and loved as the theme park capital of the world with good reason. When you’re here over the 4th of July, it’s a chance to make the most of all of the holiday fun that’s in town! Start your Independence Day adventures at Legoland where kids and adults alike can enjoy the annual Red, White & Boom event that’s happening July 2nd through July 4th in 2023. This event features a DJ dance party, themed food and beverage options as well as a 3D Lego brick fireworks display to top it all off in style over Lake Eloise. In addition to these activities, guests can enjoy taking part in a patriotic Lego flag build or making the most of a mini-land scavenger hunt that’s holiday-themed as well. All of the added fun is included in the cost of general admission, so no need to purchase an additional ticket when you arrive.
Walt Disney World theme parks are fan-favorite stops year-round and over the 4th of July, visitors can elevate their experience at just about all of the parks. If you’re spending time in Epcot, you can enjoy Spaceship Earth illuminated in red, white, and blue while many of the characters running around will be donning their 4th of July best attire too. In Magic Kingdom, DJ dance parties are all the rage while concerts at the American Gardens Theater are just as appealing. In the evening guests can experience Disney’s Celebrate America event which includes a concert and a 14-minute fireworks show over Cinderella’s Castle that’s designed to inspire!
If it’s a day at SeaWorld Orlando you’re longing to enjoy over the 4th of July, there’s plenty to celebrate here as well. SeaWorld Orlando will once again host an annual fireworks display synced to music that’s best viewed from a sat at Bayside Stadium. No matter what theme park you pick, the Independence Day fun is well within reach!
Explore the City in Style this 4th of July
Beyond the theme parks, Orlando offers up a variety of activities and attractions that are just as fun to experience over the 4th of July as they are year-round. When you’re here this time of year, make some time to put your teamwork to the test by booking a session at The Escape Game Orlando on International Drive. A stroll through the Harry P. Leu Gardens is a great way to enjoy the sunshine and spectacular beds of colorful florals from around the globe as well.

Celebrating at Lake Eola Park
Downtown Orlando is an energetic and vibrant area packed with restaurants, shops, and entertainment venues for visitors to check out. It’s also home to a quiet and lush retreat known as Lake Eola Park! In the center of a busy downtown scene, Lake Eola Park offers locals and visitors alike a scenic reprieve where they can enjoy a musical performance at the amphitheater, stroll the trails, or rent a swan boat and paddle through a sunny afternoon instead. Over the 4th of July, Lake Eola Park also hosts the annual Fireworks at the Fountain event which might just be the highlight of your holiday stay. This event is hosted by the mayor and happens between 4:00 pm and 10:00 pm.
