    The main event is the fireworks show:

    Disney's Celebrate America: A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky


    I have yet to see this show, but I hear the soundtrack is good. A negative though was that last year, it was all just reused pyro from Remember... Dreams Come True.

    I wonder if they will add a 4th of July tag to World of Color

    Question about the 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular:

    Do they just tack on an extra bit on the end of the regular fireworks show or is it its own unique thing? In other words, will Magical not take place that night and instead be replaced with a special 4th of July themed show? Can anyone describe what happened last year?

    Just curious!

    It's a separate show.

    It is it's own show with it's own soundtrack. Last year, the pyro was just reused from Remember, so I'm not sure if it will be like that this year or if it will have it's own unique pyro.

    The Flag Retreat Ceremony is also really neat on the 4th. Last year, they had everyone present who had served or was currently in the U.S. Armed Forces step forward and the band proceeded to play all the Armed Forces hymns before lowering the flag.

    The 2007 show was very good... 2008 cancelled and 2009 wasn't very exciting.

    There was TWO versions of Disney Celebrate America last year an abridged version that was presented July 2,3,5 and they also presnted the TRUE spectacular on July 4. The abridged version used some shells (RUMOR) according to several tweets on twitter.
    I'm back and now what!

    Congratz... on stating information with little explanation except a "tweet"

    The abriged version used a lot of shells from remember as did the "TRUE" spectaculr which is expected considering they buy them in bulk.


    However... 2007 was much larger than 2009. I would have done the same thing if I had purchased all that product the year before, set up, paid extra labor and etc only to have the show cancelled. I'm sure there were other factors as well.

    Here's my favorite video of the "real" 4th of July show. The ending always gives me chills!

    Is it known for sure yet if they'll be doing the same deal again this year? With the special fireworks all week long?

    I was there last year on the fourth. Actually I was in Downtown Disney on the 4th and only saw some of the fireworks (heard them though!). I saw them on the 3rd and I really enjoyed the soundtrack. Even though the crowds are insane, it is well worth going at least once on the 4th because it is just awesome to see fireworks at Disney on the 4th of July.

    Have a good time!

    I was there for the 4th in 2007 and it is one of my favorite Disney memories.

    As I recall DL wasn't very busy during the day but as evening progressed it got really packed. In fact it took us aprox. one hour just to get out of our parking space when we left.

    Even so I think it was worth the time and hassle at the end of the evening.
