inline imageFireworks are synonymous with the Fourth of July and Walt Disney World Resort, and on Independence Day 2018, Disney theme parks will offer guests a bevy of booming delights.

Nighttime “wows” for the holiday include:

Disney’s Celebrate America! A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky
Fireworks will soar above Magic Kingdom Park while the air swells with patriotic melodies. The two-nights-only show starts at 9:15 p.m. on July 3 and July 4.



Also at Magic Kingdom Park:
  • DJs will host dance parties in Frontierland and Tomorrowland on July 3 and July 4.
  • The Muppets Present…Great Moments in American History: Miss Piggy, Kermit, Fozzie Bear and friends reenact famous moments in American history – as only they can. The live show is performed daily in Liberty Square.

FUN FACT: The Liberty Bell in Liberty Square is a replica cast from the same mold of the original in Philadelphia; it was placed in Magic Kingdom Park in recognition of the bicentennial of the United States Constitution in 1987.

IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth
The perennial “kiss goodnight” at Epcot will include a special fireworks finale that paints the sky red, white and blue. The spectacular begins at 9 p.m. on July 4.

Also at Epcot:
  • The Voices of Liberty a cappella group will perform traditional Americana songs on the America Gardens Theatre stage at 5:30, 6:45 and 8 p.m.

FUN FACT: More than 26,000 feet of lights outline the Epcot World Showcase pavilions that play a role in “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.”

Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular
Fireworks are just one portion of this immersive nighttime experience at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Adding state-of-the-art projection effects, dynamic lighting and lasers, the show transports guests to a galaxy far, far away and into iconic scenes from the Star Wars saga. This one-of-a-kind “wow” begins at 10 p.m. on July 4.

FUN FACT: The show now includes an all-new sequence from “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”

Patriotic Treats
Select theme parks and resorts will offer exclusive dessert items in honor of Independence Day. Examples include:
  • A Fourth of July cupcake featuring an apple-pie filling at Creature Comforts and Isles of Java at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
  • A sparkly red-white-and-blue coconut macaroon dipped in white chocolate at BoardWalk Bakery at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort.
  • Patriotic dipped strawberries and Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse mini-domes at Amorette’s at Disney Springs.

18 May 2018 -As the sun goes down, the night comes alive at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay’s Summer Nights. New this year, the event starts earlier than ever on May 25. The event features extended hours, endless energy and world-class coasters that light up the night.

“We are excited to bring back our Summer Nights annual event this year earlier than ever, just in time for Memorial Day and the end of the school year,” said Stewart Clark, President and General Manager at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. “Summer Nights is full of fun for everyone with longer hours, unique entertainment, and some of the best thrill rides in a whole new light.”

Starting Memorial Day weekend, guests can enjoy the all the excitement of Summer Nights with any park admission, and keep the party going late through August 5.

Party Zones

Summer Nights will feature three uniquely themed party zones at the Bird Gardens, Cheetah Hunt Plaza, and Stanleyville areas of the park. Guests can dance into the night at each location and indulge in spectacular summer-inspired culinary offerings in every party zone.

NEW! Backyard BBQ

Guests can celebrate summer at the newest party zone, Backyard BBQ, which is taking over the Bird Gardens, this year. The party will feature live, local music and classic American fare with a twist including chicken waffle sandwich with blackberry pepper jelly, St. Louis ribs with Cherry Coke® BBQ sauce and smoked beef brisket sliders with Jack Daniel’s® and Coke® BBQ sauce peach slaw. Guest can sip on beverages such as old-fashioned lemonade, bourbon cream root beer and special “dreamsicle floatinis.”

¡Fiesta Festa!

Cheetah Hunt Plaza transforms into the ¡Fiesta Festa! party zone, complete with lively entertainment and a flavour-packed menu, including steak chimichurri with yucca fries, beef empanadas and tostones and seasoned pork sliders with avocado puree. The party zone will also feature both Tequila and Margarita bars, and several additional drink options including Moscow mules, frozen sangria and wine selections.

Vibin’ Village

The Vibin’ Village party zone takes over the Stanleyville area with endless fun and unique culinary creations including traditional hummus topped with curry-roasted cauliflower and pita chips, chilled shrimp with watermelon and tamarind glaze, and special funnel cake with strawberry and kiwi sauces, as well as international and domestic beer selections.

NEW! Florida’s Best Thrill Rides, Brighter than Ever

Florida’s most thrilling coasters will light up the night in a whole new way this summer. The excitement of Falcon’s Fury, Cheetah Hunt, SheiKra and spin coaster Cobra’s Curse™, will be brighter than ever with spectacular lights and sounds as they fly through the night

Beer is back at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay! For the duration of Summer Nights, guests age 21 and older can enjoy two complimentary beer samples from the Garden Gate Café each time they visit the park.

inline imageRay Rush, Aquatica Orlando's anticipated new attraction will be making its grand debut to park guests on Saturday, 12 May. The new attraction promises to be a fully-loaded water adventure which will combine three unique slide elements, never before seen at Aquatica, into one action-packed attraction the entire family can enjoy together.

At nearly 60 feet tall, Ray Rush is where family and friends can take on three exciting thrills as they slide, splash and soar like never before. First, riders will be launched with water jets designed to propel rafts into the first of several enclosed tube sections. Next, riders will swirl into the giant sphere. Finally, riders will drop into an open-air halfpipe that resembles the shape of a manta ray before ending with a splash. Ray Rush will have a height requirement of 42” to appeal to families with children and will accommodate up to four riders per raft.

The park announced the addition of Ray Rush this past October. The new slide is located on the north side of the park next to Walkabout Waters. A neighbouring attraction which was temporarily closed to accommodate the construction of Ray Rush, Walhalla Wave, reopened this past weekend.
