    Where is the best place to stay at the contemporay to see the fireworks?

    HI Keely!

    If you're looking to stay at the Contemporary, and would like to see the Magic Kingdom fireworks right from your hotel room you'll need to book a "Magic Kingdom View" or "Theme Park View" room category in the hotel tower. Both of these room categories will ensure that you'll be able to see the Magic Kingdom from your balcony.

    Of course, these rooms with a view will be among the higher priced rooms at the hotel. If the budget doesn't allow for one of these categories, or you'd just like to visit the Contemporary, and you'd like to view the fireworks, there is an observation deck on the 4th floor of the hotel. It is located on the end of the tower closest to Bay Lake Tower/Magic Kingdom. This area is open to all guests - you don't need to be staying at the resort to enjoy the view here.

    And, lastly, one other place to catch the fireworks is from the California Grill atop of the Contemporary. This restaurant offers spectacular views of Wishes. If you'd like to enjoy a meal here, you can either try to time your reservation during fireworks or, you can enjoy a lunch or earlier dinner and return to the restaurant podium with your receipt at fireworks time. You'll then be allowed back to the restaurant's observation deck to take in the show.

    Hope this helps! Have a great trip!
