    Can guests staying in a resort at Disney World but NOT staying at the Polynesian Resort watch the fireworks from the beach?

    Welcome to planDisney Brad!

    Watching Magic Kingdom fireworks is magical and a "must do" for every visit to Walt Disney World. Disney Enchantment is the perfect way to end a day of fun. 

    Generally, guests are welcome to watch fireworks from the Polynesian Village Resort beach. There are some exceptions to this, especially during busy times like New Year's Eve, July 4th, etc. when beach access is for Polynesian Resort guests exclusively. If you reach the beach and you are not given access, you can always watch from behind the pool area and even some other great views around the resort and the walkway to the Grand Floridian. Sometimes my family even just hops on the monorail to get a view from the "highway in the sky!" 

    Please note that parking at any of the resort hotels is for guests of that resort only and for guests with confirmed dining reservations. The easiest option is to use Disney transportation to zoom around property. 

    A fantastic view of the Magic Kingdom is from the windows of 'Ohana at the Polynesian. Not only are the views amazing, but the food is also delicious - making this one of the hardest Dining Reservations on property to secure! But, it really is worth the effort if you can get a reservation. 

    Of course, the best views of Disney Enchantment will be inside the Magic Kingdom. You cannot beat being in the middle of the magic as fireworks, music, and projections surround you! 

    I hope your entire vacation is full of magic and pixie dust!
