    Hi, I notice of the benefits of staying at a disney hotel is "preferred viewing of fireworks". Can you please explain how this works. Thanks

    Hi Sharon,

    There are a number of ways your question could be interpreted.  Perhaps you are referring to the fact that a number of Disney resorts have theme park view rooms from which you can watch the fireworks above Cinderella Castle.  These resorts include Disney's Polynesian Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, Disney's Contemporary Resort, and Bay Lake Tower.  You can also catch a partial view of Illuminations: Reflections of Earth at Epcot if you are staying in specific rooms at Disney's Boardwalk Inn or Disney's Beach Club Resort & Villas. 

    You may, however, be referring instead to the special vouchers that guests receive for "preferred fireworks viewing" if they purchase a Magic Your Way Premium or Platinum package.  Guests who purchase these packages can present the vouchers they receive as part of their packages for admission to roped off locations within Epcot and the Magic Kingdom.  I watched Illuminations from one of these areas last September and had a lovely view of the nighttime spectacular.  You will need to make reservations to guarantee a spot in these prime viewing areas.  If you purchase a Premium or Platinum package, a personal Itinerary Planner will help you make reservations for special access events such as these.

    Let us know, Sharon, if perhaps you had meant something entirely different by your question.  We'll be happy to take another shot at it if I misinterpreted it the first time.

    Best wishes to you as you plan your Walt Disney World vacation!
