4th of July iten.?

Hello need some out side opinions, driving myself crazy!! obviously 4th of july Disney will be busy so I thought of:

plan A: Golf in the am, go to DIsney quest afternoon, late evening go to Epcot of illuminations (although I'm sure Epcot would be insane for Illuminations?)

plan:B go to one of the parks am-later afternoon, golf in early evening5-7ish, pleasure Island for fireworks?

Plan:C Water park, pleasure Island?

Plan:D or maybe this is when we should go to Universal/Islands of Adventure, less busy then Disney?

any ideas would help? I just want that specific day of our trip to be planned well due to a higher level of crowds. Yes I know I planned at a busy time of year!! Thanks

One thing's for sure, if you want to go to a theme park, you'd best go in the morning. When the parks fill to capacity, as they often do on July 4th, they will "close" the park to further entry, so you may not be able to get into a theme park if you wait until late in the afternoon or evening.

Personally, I'd avoid the theme parks on July 4th, but find somewhere close to be able to view the fireworks there or other places in Orlando. I'll bet there will be several fireworks shows going on that entire weekend.

If you must go to a theme park, perhaps Seaworld or Discover Cove would be the best one.

All the parks will be busy 4th of July. Worst of course will be later in the day where they have fireworks. Like already mentioned they will fill to compacity. If you go to MK plan on getting yourself locked into place for a couple of hours. The show is great but I mean you will not even be able to move. I like the Downtown Disney idea best.

A,definitely, and probably avoid Epcot as well. Live to play another day and always hit 'em straight.
