    Heading to Florida in August, we are staying one night on property at the Rivera and then heading to Vero Beach. Fireworks were just announced to be coming back July 1st, will Bay Lake Tower be open for DVC members and guests to view the fireworks?

    Welcome Home, Armanda!

    When I heard that fireworks would be returning to the Walt Disney World Resort I definitely felt a little misty-eyed. There is something about fireworks choreographed to Disney music that has always moved me, but to finally see them after more than a year of darkness will truly make me feel that we are returning to some normalcy. We are booked for a July trip and I can’t wait to hear the opening notes to “Happily Ever After.”

    I am guessing you are referring to the Top of the World Lounge at Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. This is a wonderful location to enjoy a beverage or dive into their famous (or infamous) seven-layer cake while taking in the stunning view of the fireworks over Cinderella Castle. At this time, Armanda, Disney has not announced the reopening of the Top of the World Lounge. I am hopeful that as the premier of nighttime spectaculars approaches an announcement may be made, but at this point, only Mickey Mouse knows the plan, and he’s a good secret keeper. I would stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog and check the Top of the World Lounge webpage for any announcements or updates before your visit.

    If the Top of the World Lounge has yet to reopen in time for your visit, Armanda, The Wave Lounge at Disney’s Contemporary Resort has amazing beverages, and you could watch the fireworks from the sky bridge between Bay Lake Tower and Disney’s Contemporary Resort. This might be a good backup plan in case the Top of the World Lounge remains closed during your visit.

    I hope this helps with your planning, Armanda!

    Wishing you Membership Magic!
