Red, White & Mickey

July 1, 2018

 
July 4th is fast approaching, & if you're headed to WDW for the festivities, you're in for some pretty spectacular fireworks! No one does fireworks like Disney, & Independence Day is when the big guns come out in a patriotic salute to all nations, but mostly America (really though, just America).

Take your pick of 2 spectacular July 4th shows. Over at Magic Kingdom, you can catch the "Celebrate America" fireworks, which melds patriotic songs with classic Disney tunes, culminating in a surround sound 360° effect fireworks display. The other show happens at Epcot, which is "Heartbeat of Freedom." It starts out as regular Illuminations but I'm betting there are some extra patriotic surprises thrown in. You can catch the MK show on both July 3rd & 4th, but "Heartbeat of Freedom" is only on the 4th, so check out MK on the 3rd if you want to see both!

Other ways to get in that patriotic spirit include a visit to the Hall of Presidents, The Muppets Present: Great Moments in American History, Voices of Liberty, the American Adventure, & the Dapper Dans (decked out in their July 4th best). Indulge in some of the festive treats offered (dollars to donuts that Starbucks will have some kind of red, white & blue drink), & go for a long stroll down Main Street - because what's more pure Americana than that?! 
 
I'll be celebrating from TN & catching our local fireworks show, but that isn't going to stop me from reppin' that red, white & Mickey style!
 
For this look, I paired a white ruffled off the shoulder top (complete with a patriotic bow!) with some dark chambray shorts & coral bow sandals (I was going for ultimate comfort with my shoe choice, but wedges were a close second). I topped it off with this fabulous red Mickey cross body. It's the perfect size for carrying around the essentials & is incredibly lightweight. The plain red makes it perfect for adding lots of pin flair - I will definitely be decorating those ears with some American flag swag!

And if you're headed to the parks, you will absolutely need a good water bottle to tote around. I'm loving the Junk Food x Target Disney collab (& already snagged quite a few pieces), and they have so many cute water bottle & tumbler options. I thought this star print tumbler was perfect for the 4th! You can shop the star print tumbler here, or choose from rainbow stripe or rainbow Mickey head styles.



Even if you're not heading to the parks for America's birthday (& braving the enormous crowds & intense heat!), you can still catch all the fireworks displays on YouTube or IG, probably even in real time. I'll be following along on social media, so leave your handle in the comments below if you'll be park bound this week.

Happy 4th of July, friends!
