I pose a couple of questions to you all as I have never been to Disneyland for the July 4th Celebrations. I am arriving this Friday for a week at the GCH. It will be myself, my wife, and our 3 children (3 years, 1 1/2 years, 5 months).
My questions are quite basic.
The first, are there any special fireworks, shows, parades or other things to celebrate the holiday?
The second has to do with the crowds. I made the mistake of going once during the week between Christmas and New Years and the crowd hit capacity almost every day I believe. Being Summer season, a holiday, AND the new Nemo ride open, am I just setting myself up for a park at capacity? Has anyone ever been to the parks on the 4th in the past years? Do you think that the 4th being on a Wednesday might lessen the crowds a bit?
Thanks for your input!
