    Will Hollywood studios reach capacity on the 4th like magic kingdom. Planning week and wondering if need to get there early or can show up at like 1 or 2.
    Wanna make sure we get in. Also anything special there on 4th? Or just normal fantasmic. Thanks.

    No, it won't. Neither will MK.

    The last time a park reached capacity was March 2009.

    Nothing materially special at HS on 7/4, historically. The special shows are at MK and Epcot on 7/4.

    And Epcot was quite manageable last 4th of July. (Rain delayed the Illuminations show, but they did do it and it was very cool.)

    Magic Kingdom was a mad house on July 3rd this year. I would not reccommend MK on the third or fourth.

    We tried that once years back. Arrived MK at opening. We lasted a very short time. I don’t feel like being a sardine and started getting anxious. Way too hectic for me. Turned into a great resort day. ( at the time we had been told to arrive early as later in afternoon Possibility of capacity issue).

    Went to MK on 3rd and Epcot on 4th. Preferred MK fireworks - they had an impressive show after illuminations. We didn’t really have any crowd issues but the MK looked to be a madhouse during fireworks on 3rd. We were sitting up in Tomorrowland terrace for the dessert party and that was perfect even with a slight off center viewing. Epcot had rain storms before fireworks but was still pretty crowded but viewing is so much easier than MK. That being said we also were at dessert party that night which was worth every penny too!

    We arrived on 7/4 at the BC around 3pm. We decided to enter EPCOT for the fireworks around 8pm. We had no problem and the crowds were very manageable. The fireworks were delayed due to weather but it was well worth it.
