    We will be arriving in the early evening and will be staying at Disney Contemporary Resort. Is there a place in the hotel to watch the fireworks that serves a light dinner or desert?

    Hi Grace! Your question makes my heart so happy! 1. You will be at Walt Disney World Resort in a few short days and 2. You are staying at one of my most favorite Disney Resort hotels!

    Disney's Contemporary Resort is amazing! Where else can you experience a picturesque view of Magic Kingdom combined with a Resort Monorail breezing through your hotel? It's pure magic! You can also WALK to the Magic Kingdom! LOVE LOVE LOVE Disney's Contemporary Resort!

    Based on what you are looking for, I would suggest Contempo Café for your 1st night at Walt Disney World Resort. It's a great quick service restaurant featuring items such as flatbreads, pasta and burgers. Contempo Café also has several delectable dessert options including cupcakes and soft-serve ice cream.

    Another option if you are looking for a tasty treat is Bayview Gifts. It's a fabulous merchandise store where you will find a great selection of apparel, Disney Parks merchandise and several yummy treats such as cookies and fudge.

    Once you have enjoyed your meal or purchased a dessert, you can walk outside to the area near the Sky Way Bridge for a fantastic view of the Happily Ever After fireworks at Magic Kingdom. It's the perfect ending to your first evening at Walt Disney World Resort!

    I am so excited for you! I know your time at Disney's Contemporary Resort will be amazing! Enjoy every magical moment!
