It’s the Fourth of July and we’re celebrating with three days of star-spangled awesomeness.
From July 4th–6th, Universal Studios Florida will feature special entertainment to celebrate Independence Day. The Music Plaza will feature award-winning DJ M-Squared spinning top hits along with a live performance by the high-energy band, Raydio. Make sure you have your camera ready—stilt walkers and your favorite Universal characters will be dancing right alongside you.
Hungry but don’t want to leave the action? We’ve got you covered. For this event only, you’ll be able to get food and beverages delivered straight to the Music Plaza from Universal Studios’ Classic Monster Cafe. Your favorite summertime cravings will be available including smoked ribs, brisket sandwiches, mac n’ cheese, peach cobbler, and more. Be sure to Download The Official Universal Orlando Resort Appbefore your visit.
The celebration doesn’t stop there. All of your favorite Universal Studios attractions will be open for you to enjoy (I’ll be on Men in Black: Alien Attack trying to max out my score.)
But no matter how much fun you’re having stuffing your face with mac n’ cheese or dancing your heart out with your favorite characters, Fourth of July really means one thing: pyrotechnics. Don’t worry about having to trek across the park to see the show—they’ll be right in the middle of the action. Well, not in the action—more like above it. Feast your eyes on a breathtaking pyrotechnics display with confetti cannons in the sky over the Music Plaza starting at 9 p.m., followed by Universal Orlando’s Cinematic Celebration at 9:45 p.m in Central Park.
The festivities kick off at 5 p.m. at the Music Plaza and will continue until when the park closes at 10 p.m. Access to the celebration is included in admission to Universal Studios Florida or with a park-to-park ticket.
