    July 3rd or 4th?

    I'm aware that this 4th of July week is one of the most crowded times, that being said they are putting on the same fireworks show on the 3rd and 4th in the Magic Kingdom. Which day do you think will be more crowded?

    the 4th, being a Thursday, it will be the start of a 4 day weekend for most peeps

    I think Brian just nailed it for you.

    I've never been during that particular holiday. At least I don't ever remember being there for it.

    Wednesday's, in general, tend to be low crowd days. And mostly because of the four day weekend schedule. Most are either Thursday through Sunday, or Friday through Monday.

    Have a good time and enjoy the fireworks on steroids show! I've never seen one, but I hear they're worth enduring the crowds for.

    Touring Plans: out of 10

    July 2 - 7.2
    July 3 - 9.4
    July 4 - 9.3
    July 5 - 7.8

    Flip the coin basically between the two. If you are going to be there for several days you might want to attraction hop in the MK on days other than the 3rd and 4th.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Was at MK for the fireworks last year and WOW was it was amazing. The show kept getting delayed bc of weather approaching on and off so we had to stand in the same spot near the walt and mickey statue for 2 hrs but omg was it worth the wait. The park was crowded for the 4th but it was less than I really expected. The longest line I waited for was space mountain and it was 90 min but it was inside and it was in the high 90s that day so it wasnt a big deal

    Disney just announced a whole new 4th Show at DHS that sounds pretty amazing. This might take some heat off attendance at Epcot and MK on the 4th.
