Universal Orlando’s July 4th celebration is actually a 3 day party for America. From July 4th through the 6th Universal Orlando will feature special entertainment to celebrate Independence Day. The Music Plaza will play host to award-winning DJ M-Squared spinning top hits and tunes 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 .
And because you will get hungry but won’t want to leave the party Universal is offering mobile ordering and delivery right to the Music Plaza from the Universal Studio’s Classic Monsters Cafe. Favorites like smoked ribs, brisket sandwiches, mac n’ cheese, peach cobbler, and more will be available for you to order. Make sure to download the free Universal app to get in on the fun.
And of course it couldn’t be 4th of July celebrations without fireworks. This year you won’t have to look to far for the show. Right above Music Plaza and with Rip Ride Rockit as a perfect backdrop. 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.
