Fourth of July Fireworks at Other Area Theme Parks



Fireworks from SeaWorld

Walt Disney World isn’t the only area resort hosting fireworks for the Fourth of July! Here is what you can expect at some of the other local parks. Unlike Walt Disney World, you don’t need a theme park reservation to attend, but it is possible that any of the parks listed could reach capacity. All events will take place weather permitting.

SeaWorld Orlando is hosting its annual summer event called Electric Ocean on select evenings now through September 5. It includes the Ignite 360 Fireworks Spectacular. On July 1-4, there will be a special patriotic ending. The fireworks will take place at some point after 9:00, although the SeaWorld website isn’t really clear on the start time.

Similar to SeaWorld, Busch Gardens Tampa is also hosting its annual summer event on select evenings. At Busch Gardens it’s called Summer Celebration. Summer Celebration Firework Spectacular will have a special ending July 1-4. The show will take place at 9:15.

Legoland Florida will also host special fireworks. The annual show is called Red, White, & Boom! It will take place July 2-4. While this one doesn’t give the time either, the park closes at 9:00. Grab a pair of special viewing glasses to see the fireworks in a whole new way.

It doesn’t look like Universal Orlando Resort will have fireworks this Fourth of July. Instead, there will be special entertainment and street parties to celebrate Independence Day.

Fun Spot America has two local locations, one in Orlando and the other in Kissimmee. Both will host fireworks on the Fourth of July. They will take place at 9:00. Admission to Fun Spot is free, but you’ll pay if you want to ride something.

If you need tickets for any of the above, the first place to check is online on the park’s official website. Often there are deals that you won’t find at the gate.
