Park of the Week: Islands of Adventure

Celebrate the Fourth of July at Home with These Videos

July 4, 2020, 12:00 AM · Okay, so millions of Americans are stuck at home this Independence Day, as the Covid-19 pandemic has forced the cancellation of Fourth of July parties and fireworks displays across the country. But we won't let that keep us from enjoying the holiday. Let's celebrate with some Fourth of July-themed videos from Disney!

We'll start with the perfect video to tell the story of the day, with the full show of "The Muppets Present Great Moments in American History: Declaration of Independence."

Then let's reflect with a more serious moment, with this excerpt from "Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln."

Parades are a great Independence Day tradition, so let's enjoy the most famous theme park parade of them all - with its "To Honor America" finale. It's the Main Street Electrical Parade from Disneyland.

Finally, the Fourth must conclude with fireworks. So we wish you a happy Independence Day, wherever you are and however you are celebrating, with this Fourth of July fireworks show from Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.

And if that's not enough kaboom for you, check out these additional theme park fireworks shows from our archive. Have a great day, and stay safe, everyone.

My Illinois town did axe usual fireworks/parade. Also, often with family at our Michigan lake house but decided best not to cross state lines now. Still, plenty of folks firing stuff off to make it a nice night.
