Magic Kingdom

Inspired by Walt Disney’s childhood hometown of Marceline, Missouri, Main Street, U.S.A., is a step back in time to a quintessential American town at the turn of the 20th century. The colorful Victorian setting is where guests can enjoy the famous Dapper Dans barbershop quartet, horse-drawn carriages and the high-flying revelry of the Main Street Philharmonic. Take a stroll down Main Street, U.S.A. on the Fourth of July!

Since the Magic Kingdom opened in 1971, the daily Flag Retreat ceremony has retired the American flag for the night in a celebratory tribute to U.S. Veterans. Veterans often participate in the ceremony, receiving warm recognition for their service and sacrifice.

Set in the Revolutionary War era, Liberty Square pays tribute to daily life in the original thirteen colonies. Guests can get up close to an authentic replica of the Liberty Bell and meet all 45 different Presidents of the United States in a stirring show tracing the nation’s history inside the Hall of Presidents. A walk along the Rivers of America from Liberty Square to neighboring Frontierland is a journey through the country’s era of westward expansion.

EPCOT

In celebration of the holiday, the iconic Spaceship Earth at EPCOT will be illuminated in bright red, white and blue colors at night. You can bask in a patriotic glow that will reflect across World Celebration, which is part of the park’s recently completed multi-year transformation.

Get your cameras ready! Some of your favorite Disney pals – dressed for the occasion in their “Spirit of ’76” attire – will meet guests throughout the day at The American Adventure in EPCOT.

While visiting EPCOT you’ll be treated to the sounds of Americana from the legendary a cappella vocal group Voices of Liberty. The renowned singers perform patriotic numbers throughout the day in the rotunda of The American Adventure.


Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief’s Tribute to America’s Warriors is a special exhibit from the George W. Bush Institute that is installed in The American Adventure pavilion at EPCOT. Reflecting President Bush’s personal commitment to military veterans and ongoing work of the Bush Institute’s Veteran and Military Families Program, this extraordinary art exhibit brings together more than 60 vibrant oil paintings by President Bush of service members and veterans who have served in military uniform with honor since 9/11 and whom the President has come to know personally since leaving office.

The American Adventure located in World Showcase at EPCOT features a dramatic production including 35 Audio-Animatronic figures that retell pivotal moments and events throughout the country’s history. From the landing of the Mayflower to Valley Forge, the Civil War to the Great Depression, Benjamin Franklin and Mark Twain guide guests on this trip through time.
