    What is the best non park place to watch July 4 fireworks? We are staying at the Grand Floridian.

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lori! 

    I hope you are having as much fun as I am planning your Fourth of July vacation to Walt Disney World® Resort! Our vacations will be here before we know it!

    Having been during this holiday several times, I've learned to avoid the theme parks and plan a fun and relaxing day around resort activities. This lead me to the discovery of the absolute best location to view "Disney Celebrate America - A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky." The best part, you're just a short beach stroll away. By viewing this celebration at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort you will be blown away at what you will see; the most stunning display of fireworks ever! 

    I don't want to give the secret away, so just walk on over from Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa and find a location on the beach near the Lava Pool about 45 mins prior to the show. Grab a drink from the Barefoot Pool Bar and enjoy the atmosphere while you wait. I'm staying at a Monorail Resort myself and will be enjoying the day by the pool, catching the early show of Hoop-Dee-Doo-Musical-Revue and then heading to the Poly for fireworks. 

    I hope this helps in your planning, Lori! Please let me know if you have any additional questions regarding your sparkling holiday. 

    Mickey can't wait to see Red, White and You!
