Orlando is a family travel destination year-round, but did you know it’s one of the top destinations in the US for the 4th of July? In addition to the festivities at Disney World, which include fireworks, music, dancing, and tributes to the USA, the Orlando area offers many other fireworks displays and fun ways to celebrate the holiday. Visitors will find parades, road races, eating contests, and more, all the things that fill this American holiday with summer fun.

Legoland will go Red, White, and Boom for the 4th! Participate in building a giant LEGO American flag, try your hand at the patriotic build competition, show off your best dance moves, and wear special viewing glasses to see thousands of LEGO bricks explode in the sky overhead.



ICON Orlando 360 , across the street from Sonesta ES Suites Orlando, will be lit up with red, white, and blue lights, and as always, will offer some of the best views in Orlando. Imagine the views from this big wheel when all of the fireworks in Orlando begin!

In addition to the 4th of July holiday, Disney will be celebrating the much-anticipated opening of Toy Story World, where visitors will get to immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of the well-loved movies, essentially becoming toys in Andy’s backyard.

Over-sized suites, a pool, lush grounds,  park shuttles, and Everyday Surprises await you and your family, and with the Sonesta Summer Sale, you can book and save on summer travel all season long!
