    Where are some places we can watch the Fourth of July fireworks outside of the parks? I'm wondering if it's best to be on the Boardwalk, the beach by the Polynesian Resort, or some place else magical. (I'm also DVC).

    Welcome to planDisney, Kari, and Welcome Home!

    Nighttime spectaculars are a perfect way to end an incredible day at Walt Disney World Resort. However, there is always just a bit more pixie dust when enjoying these fireworks extravaganzas on a holiday. Let's take a look at the fireworks celebrations of the Fourth of July!

    As fellow Disney Vacation Club Members, we have watched fireworks from Disney's Boardwalk and the beach outside of Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows. You cannot go wrong with either option. Both offer fantastic views and ambiance, but my favorite (by just a smidge) is the beach viewing. We love catching a glimpse of the Electrical Water Pageant in addition to the fireworks, and I have heard that the Fourth of July spectacular at Magic Kingdom Park is absolutely epic. Plus, there is something magical about sitting on a beach, perhaps with a cold treat from Pineapple Lanai in hand, watching the night sky above Cinderella Castle come alive. Another option to consider, exclusive to Disney Vacation Club Members, is watching the fireworks from the Top of the World Lounge- A Villians Lair. This space is exclusive for DVC Members and offers several dining and firework dessert packages. Additionally, the Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise would provide stunning views of the fireworks, and DVC Members receive a discount! Call DVC Member Services to check availability for the Fourth of July for either option.
