Walt Disney World will use its Limited Time Magic promotion to expand its celebration of Independence Day to a full seven days beginning July 1.
Fireworks will soar above Magic Kingdom each of those nights in a presentation called "Disney's Celebrate America! A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky." Patriotic lighting will be shown on Cinderella Castle during the 14-minute pyrotechnic display. Show times will be 10 p.m. on July 1, 2, 5, 6 and 7 and at 9 p.m. on July 3 and 4.
Celebrate a Dream Come True, the daily afternoon parade, will be enhanced with appearances by Goofy, Donald and Pluto as a fife and drum corps along with pre-parade performances by the Main Street Philharmonic and the Citizens of Main Street troupe plus a horse-drawn calliope.
Disney also will offer special red, white and blue merchandise (including a patriotic costume for Duffy the Disney Bear) alongside exclusive treats: Strawberry shortcake at Magic Kingdom and apple-pie cupcakes at Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom and Downtown Disney.
