At the Universal Orlando Resort, there is always a celebration going on, and this year’s Fourth of July extravaganza promises to be one of the best ever. This Independence Day, there is something to celebrate all across the Universal Orlando Resort: a new lagoon show at Universal Studios Florida, extended hours at Universal’s Islands of Adventure and live entertainment along with summertime treats at Universal CityWalk.
Universal Studios Florida Blasts Off With New Lagoon Extravaganza
Universal 360: A Cinesphere Spectacular is the latest and greatest “high-tech lagoon show” at Universal Studios Florida. The outdoor show goes off over the central lagoon at Universal Studios Florida and is projected on 360-degree “cinespheres” that are four stories tall.
For this year’s Fourth of July celebration, the Cinesphere Spectacular will include an exclusive finale filled with patriotic themes and a fabulous fireworks presentation that is sure to wow and awe the crowds. The Universal 360 show begins at 10 p.m., and a Universal ticket is required for admission to Universal Studios Florida.
Universal’s Islands of Adventure is Open Late to Celebrate
If you want to celebrate your independence with some wild rides, then head over to Universal’s Islands of Adventure to experience some of the most innovative and thrilling rides in Orlando. This year Islands of Adventure is staying open late – until 11 p.m. – to celebrate the Fourth of July in style. A Universal ticket is needed to get in to Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park.
Universal CityWalk Marks the Fourth of July with American Fare
If you don’t have a Universal ticket but still want to celebrate the Fourth of July at the Universal Orlando Resort, Universal CityWalk is the party place to be. All of the clubs and restaurants at CityWalk will be open for the big Fourth of July bash, and there will be live music and street entertainment throughout CityWalk. For some spicy summer food favs, grab a bite at the All-American Barbecue Celebration at Universal CityWalk anytime from 5-9 p.m. on July 4.
Universal Orlando Resort Fourth of July Fireworks Changes
In the past, guests without a Universal ticket could watch Universal’s Fourth of July fireworks display from Universal CityWalk or Islands of Adventure. Due to new attraction construction going on this year, the Fourth of July fireworks will only be visible from inside Universal Studios Florida, and a Universal ticket is required for admission.
