Fourth of July Independence Day fireworks tag returning to EPCOT

9 days ago in "Harmonious"

Posted: Thursday June 16, 2022 7:16am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

EPCOT will celebrate July 4th this year with a special tag following the nighttime spectacular Harmonious.

The tag is expected to be similar to the Heartbeat of Freedom tag that was previously performed on July 4th during the Reflections of Earth era and will include fireworks launched behind the American Adventure and from barges within the lagoon for a suitably impressive big bang finale.

The calendar currently has Harmonious scheduled for 9pm on July 4 2022, with the Independence Day finale to follow immediately.

Walt Disney World did not offer July 4th fireworks in 2020 or 2021 due to restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

This will be interesting. If the Park Pass Reservation System does actually limit park capacity, visitors should experience lower crowds yes? Or it will be so crowded, any lowering of park capacity will not be felt?

Which I just assumed was due to the temporary nature of that show, versus the permanent replacement with the new show effects tied into the tags.

I don’t think the tags were ever going to vanish post ROE. Could be wrong.

Odd that they likely spent money on including the Harmonious equipment into the 4th of july tag similar to NYE yet they'll only perform one show.

to confirm - MK 4th fireworks will be on the 3rd & 4th but the 4th Harmonious tag will only be on the 4th? Just making sure I have my park reservations correct

Since Harmonious is IP heavy, they should just go ahead and change the Heartbeat of Freedom to Sam Eagle’s finale from Muppetvision….
