The fourth of July is the peak vacation time when people from all parts of Florida, the USA, and the world flock to Disney World Orlando. This sudden rush of people occurs mainly because of two reasons; the world-famous Fourth of July fireworks at Disney World, and the time off people get because of Independence day.
But since Florida is the hottest around this time of year, not knowing how to survive the 4th of July can ruin your vacation experience. Therefore, in this article, we will be sharing some tips for visiting Disney World in July and, more specifically, on the 4th of July, 2022 at Disney World.
Without further ado, let us begin the Tips for Fourth of July at Disney World
- Factor in the Weather on the 4th of July
Florida is hot and humid. On top of that, the months of June, July, and August have a reputation for being the hottest. It is critically important to factor in the weather on your 4th of July trip to Disney World.
Firstly, keep clothes that you know will keep you cool during excessive humidity. Packing heavy will also cause you to work more and carry more, making you sweat more.
Secondly, do not forget the sunscreen. Before you pass the entrance gates, cover yourself with sunscreen because the Florida sun can really damage your skin if you’re careless.
- Factor in the Time for Extra Travel
Everyone from the school kids to the families and foreign visitors heads to Disney World on the 4th of July. This means heavy crowds on the premises AND the roads leading to it.
Choosing the right mode of transportation in this situation can save you time. Ideally, it is best to take Disney’s Transportation over driving. Why? You’ll find heavy traffic leading toward parking lots if you’re driving. A bus will drop you at the park entrance, and you won’t have to walk from the lot to the park in heavy crowds either. Lastly, choosing Lyft or Uber will drop you off at the ticket and transportation center.
- 4th of July Fireworks Tips
Two Disney World theme parks-The Magic Kingdom and the EPCOT centre-arrange special 4th of July fireworks. Both of these are amazing, intense, and magical, but there’s something you should know.
The Magic Kingdom’s fireworks show happens on July 3rd and 4th, while the EPCOT center only does it on the 4th of July. Go with the Magic Kingdom’s show on the 3rd instead of the 4th to avoid huge crowds if you can manage. There is no difference at all in the shows, and you will not miss anything if you choose to see it on the 3rd.
- Two Best Ways to Avoid Crowds
If you think a secret tip can provide you 100 percent protection against the crowds, let us tell you right away, there isn’t any. There will be congestion, long lines, and annoyed guests everywhere around you. But you can do a few things to make the situation more bearable.
Firstly, try to avoid visiting Magic Kingdom at midday. It is the busiest time of the day, and ideally, you should go in either morning or nighttime hours.
Secondly, choose the indoor and less popular attractions during rush hours. They will provide you with ample fun and an opportunity to avoid crowds as much as possible.
