    I believe there are nightly shows of EPCOT Forever fireworks. Can I watch the fireworks outside of EPCOT? Is the Boardwalk a good spot to watch the fireworks show? Thank you.

    Hi Wilson!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with this great question! Disney's Boardwalk area is my favorite place to be in all of Walt Disney World. There is so much much to see and do in this area with three Disney Resorts hotels close by, games and entertainment on the Boardwalk, and a host of dining options. You're also only steps from the International Gateway entrance into EPCOT, which allows easy access for Guests staying in this area.

    Wilson, you are correct! EPCOT Forever is currently playing each night around the World Showcase. This gives Guests hanging out on Disney's Boardwalk a fairly good view of the show. When I was there a few months ago, I stood on the bridge over Crescent Lake connecting Disney's Boardwalk Inn and Disney's Beach Club Resort and was able to see many of the fireworks that were higher up. It was a little difficult to see the ones that were lower to the ground, but this did not take away from our overall experience. We were able to hear the music to the show pretty well, although it was not nearly as clear as if we were inside of EPCOT. Another great place to stand and watch the show is in front of Atlantic Dance Hall and Jellyrolls. You should have a clear opening over Crescent Lake to see the fireworks. 

    If you want to get out on the water, you can take a specialty Firework Cruise to watch EPCOT Forever. These cruises seat up to 10 Guests and you will be able to book a private viewing with your traveling party. The boat leaves from the marina at Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resorts, which is only steps from Disney's Boardwalk.

    Wilson, I hope this information helps you plan for your upcoming stay! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
