    Hi, Can you see fireworks from this location? And or if you are Trader Sams Grog Grotto, can you leave to see the fireworks and then go back inside? Thank you :)

    Hi Kate,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Happily Ever After is one of the best and most mesmerizing fireworks spectaculars. I just returned from a stay at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort where my wife and I enjoyed viewing the Happily Ever After from the resort's beach, complete with all the fireworks show music.

    The nighttime fireworks spectacular can also be viewed from locations like California Grill lounge or observation deck or Top of the World Lounge at Disney Vacation Club Villa at Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

    Trader Sam's Grog Grotto at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is a fun, cozy, cave-sized establishment for explorers and adventurers and a most popular spot for a rum-infused respite after cruising jungle waters. In my experience, the Skipper and crew manage a (shrunken) head count so that the room doesn't swell to zombie-packed capacity. If the Grotto is full, they'll take your name and text you when a space for you is available to seat yourself in available spots. My suggestion is to simply check in and ask about leaving and returning.  If the crowd is light you might return effortlessly from your exploits or you might be asked to rejoin the wait list. The adjoining Tiki Terrace offers outdoor seating.

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
