Celebrate America With A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky On Video

Happy Independence Day to all of our friends and readers in the United States. Walt Disney World can be a patriotic place all year round but on the Fourth of July it sparkles just a little bit brighter with that red white and blue spirit. At the heart of the celebration the Magic Kingdom's Fireworks are designed to be at their most beautiful and impressive to those standing in the hub in front of Cinderella Castle. Like many things imagineered, the use of forced perspective makes a lovely display even more grand and majestic. The Disney Company is the largest consumer of fireworks in the world and this year, from July 1-7th all week long, the nightly pyrotechnic display will be one of the most elaborate and extravagant of all, no matter where you view them from.

If I could be anywhere tonight to catch a great fireworks show, it would be the beach at Disney's Polynesian Resort. But like many of you I'm stuck in my hometown far from the Disney celebration. So to help us all out, I've found a video of the 2011 holiday show shot from the beach at the Polynesian Resort. Now, You and I can watch the celebration together! So turn down the lights, settle in and enjoy " Celebrate America - A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky."

2011 Celebrate America! A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky by JeffLangeDVD

Aside from being a consumer, The Disney Company is known as a leader in pyrotechnic technology holding several interesting patents on both newly developed equipment and precision in fireworks display since 1992. In 2004 they patented a ground breaking a compressed air system that would replace the gunpowder normally used to explosive devices into the air. The new system is safer, quieter, and reduces pollution. This system not only addressed serious concerns about the nightly display at the Southern California Disneyland Park, but allowed them to be the first Cruise Line in the world to launch fireworks from onboard their ships.

Thanks so much to Jeff Lange DVD for sharing fantastic video of the 2012 display on YouTube. For more great in depth information about the history of Disney and Fireworks visit our friends over at AllEars.net and check out Mike Scopa's piece "If It's Disney, There Must Be Fireworks!"
