Visiting Disney World in July can be hot and crowded! But there is always something to check out at Disney World during the summer. Here are 5 things to check out at Walt Disney World in July 2017.
Pandora – The World of Avatar
Disney has outdone themselves! The newest addition to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park is Pandora – The World of Avatar. It is amazing and should not be missed! When you walk into the world, you are immediately immersed into the world of Pandora. The luscious plants and scenery overtake you and it is hard to tell what is real and what imagineers actually created.
If you are looking for a tame ride, then check out the Na’vi River Journey. It is a scenic boat ride along the Na’vi River where you will meet indigenous creatures and even meet the Shaman of Songs! For those of you who would like a more adventurous ride, you have to go on Avatar Flight of Passage. This ride is incredible! If you have motion sickness problems, I would suggest taking some sort of motion sickness remedy before riding. One can argue it is now the best ride at Walt Disney World.
The Music of Pixar: Live!
Disney’s Hollywood Studios introduced a new show called “The Music of Pixar: Live!” Three show times are offered: 5:00 p.m., 6:45 p.m., and 8:15 p.m. Dining packages are also available at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for the show. The audience listens to popular Pixar music played by a live orchestra while clips from those movies are shown. Pixar characters also make appearances. Check out this fun, new show!
Happily Ever After Fireworks Show
In case you did not hear, the Magic Kingdom has a new night time fireworks show. “Happily Ever After” combines castle projections as well as a spectacular fireworks display. The best place to view the fireworks is where you can see the castle.
4th of July Fireworks
Every year, Walt Disney World changes its normal fireworks show for the 4th of July. The Magic Kingdom presents “Disney’s Celebrate America! – A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky” on Monday, July 3, 2017, and Tuesday, July 4, 2017, at 9:00 p.m. At Epcot, “Illuminations: Reflections of Earth” has a special 4th of July ending you can check out.
