Walt Disney World Independence Day Preview: Ben Franklin & Voices of Liberty at Epcot, Disney’s Celebrate America! A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky at Magic Kingdom – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

Happy Independence Day one day early! We are looking forward to enjoying part of our 4th of July holiday at Walt Disney World again, including with Ben Franklin at Epcot. This has been a Independence day tradition for us for the last 3 years and he never disappoints (below, left). He removed his hat while we recorded a fun greeting (below, right). We especially love this mention of the “Captain of the Americas”!

Video #1 – Epcot July 4th Independence Day Greeting from Ben Franklin 2011 – Ben Franklin wishes you a “Happy Independence Day” from Epcot’s American Adventure. We especially love this mention of the “Captain of the Americas” and all his wisdom!

Denise poses with Ben Franklin last year (below, left), and then I took my turn (below, right). Check out our video below, which gives some health tips from Ben Franklin himself! Past videos can be viewed HERE. You can visit Mr. Franklin and other patriotic characters tomorrow at the American Adventure12pm to 5:30pm. Also special for July 4th is the American history and heritage experience at the American Adventure – 11am to 5pm.

Video #2 – Epcot July 4th Independence Day Health Tips from Ben Franklin 2011 – Benjamin Franklin shares some important Health Tips on July 4th at the American Adventure, Epcot!

Our main purpose of visiting Epcot on July 4th is to see the Voices of Liberty (below, left and right) as they put on their yearly patriotic concert. With songs like “Golden Dream” and “God Bless the U.S.A.”, there never seems to be a dry eye in the house!

Last year, Goofy, Mickey and Donald marched up the walkway of the American Gardens Theater and onto the stage (below, left and right). This years schedule for the Voices of Liberty Fourth of July Concert at the American Gardens Theatre – 12:30pm, 1:45pm and 3pm. Also special for Independence day is IllumiNations – The Heartbeat of Freedom July 4 edition fireworks10pm

Video #3 – Epcot Voices of Liberty 4th of July Full Concert 2011 Walt Disney World – The Voices of Liberty in a full, patriotic concert at Walt Disney World!

On July 3rd during the last couple of years, we joined friends to celebrate the holiday at the Polynesian Resort beach. “Disney’s Celebrate America! A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky” (below left and right) lit the skies in a 180 degree fireworks spectacular.

Stars form over the stars and stripes of the Electrical Water Pageant (below, left). The finale (below, right) is always breathtaking! We wish everyone a safe and happy Independence Day!

Video #4 – Disney’s Celebrate America! A Fourth of July Concert In The Sky Fireworks 7/3/11 – We were at the Polynesian Resort on July 3rd, 2011 for the Magic Kingdom’s Fourth of July Celebration, Walt Disney World.
