Fourth of July

I'm getting nervous and excited all at the same time about my upcoming trip to Disney since we'll be going Fourth of July week. This is my second trip with my kids, last year we went in April so the crowds weren't too bad. The ONLY reason I am even taking a chance at a holiday is because July 4th happens to be my youngest son's bday and he wanted to turn 5 in Disney like his big brother did last year, LOL.

Has anyone been to the parks for the July 4th holiday? What was your experience like? Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Just be ready to experience LARGE crowds with possible park closings due to the parks being at capacity. If you are planning any sit down meals the ADR's should already be made. Also the fireworks will be spectacular!

Great fireworks, big crowds! I only know this from people telling me, since I've never been, but all accounts seem to agree. Whenever we're there when it's busy we always make it a point to get there early each day. You can probably get more stuff in, in the first 90 minutes, than in the rest of the day.

I figured as much...all ADR's are made...and I'm searching for options to help avoid the midday meltdown that comes as a result of young children needing a nap! Maybe a well placed air-conditioned attraction will do the trick mickey
