We are arriving this year on July 4th - one of the few holidays we have missed at WDW. I'm wondering what the best way to celebrate is...I have heard MK is pretty crowded. Also...we have a bday on the 4th. My cousin's DD is turning 14 that day. This is her 2nd trip (they came with us last year). They are staying at SSR and we will be at THV. Total of 10 in our group. We should be arriving mid-morning to lunch time, and we will be on DDP. I am making ADRs next week and I know it will be pretty booked already since we are not arriving until the 4th. Here are some options I have come up with - PLEASE tell me which you think would be best!! * Dinner at 50's Prime Time, watch Fantasmic and see special fireworks there (they missed Fantasmic last year) * Dinner at Liberty Tree or Crystal Palace, watch MK fireworks and fight crowds (is it worth it though? is it worse than Christmas?) * Dinner at Whispering Canyon, then watch fireworks on beach at WL. Can we see them from there? Do they rent the boats to go out in the lagoon after dark? Is it as fun without the music, and will they let other resort guests even use the beaches that night? Is there a better beach to watch from? I want it to be a fun dinner, since it is her b-day! Yes, she will be 14, but she is not overly sophisticated and she is the oldest of all the kids. She has a great sense of humor and 50's or WCC would be my first picks because they have fun with guests. I do want to see some awesome fireworks, though, since this is our one night to see July 4th fireworks. Please tell me if any of my plans will work, or what you recommend...we are veterans of WDW, but this will be a new experience for us, and we want it to be magical for our cousins' family as well! TIA!!
