Disneyland is often described as pure wholesome Americana. Every year the company continues a cherished tradition of showcasing its patriotic pride during the Fourth of July and this year is no different!

Now through July 3, patriotic performances will pop up in locations across the Disneyland Resort, including performances by the United States Air Force Honor Guard, the United States Army National Guard Band, and the 191st and the 300th Army Band.

June 28 – July 1: The United States Air Force Honor Guard out of Washington, D.C.

  • Paradise Pier at Disney California Adventure park – 11:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m.
  • Town Square at Disneyland park – 3:15 p.m.
  • Disneyland park pre-parade – 4:05 p.m.

Of course, on July 4th you can expect Disney to light up the sky with a dazzling array of fireworks from July 1-4 with the return of “Disney’s Celebrate America! – A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky”! The show on the fourth should be a little longer and more robust than previous nights. You can see a video from 2015 of Disney’s dazzling display!

On July 4 only, a special patriotic pre-show leads into nightly performances of the “World of Color” spectacular, at 9 and 10:15, in the Paradise Pier area of Disney California Adventure.

Walt Disney World is also going to be hosting a Live Stream of their patriotic night-time spectacular. To catch it, just visit the Disney Parks Blog on July 4 and a fresh blog post containing the live stream feed will be ready and waiting at the top!
