    I saw a video of someone who was watching the fireworks show from roof top of contemporary resort. I think I heard if we eat at the Californian Grill we get access to roof top. Can we if we eat at steakhouse 71?

    Hiya Christina - welcome back to planDisney!

    Thanks so much for stopping by with another question as you prepare for your upcoming trip!

    Fireworks are such a magical part of every Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and many Guests don't realize that you don't need to be inside a Theme Park to enjoy them! In fact, just last month I enjoyed dinner at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera and was able to enjoy Harmonious, the new nighttime fireworks spectacular at EPCOT from the rooftop terrace. The music from Harmonious was even piped in and playing over the speakers!

    California Grill is an amazing spot for fine dining and amazing views - day or night! The observation deck outside of the restaurant is only for California Grill Guests, so if you'd like to recreate the video you saw, you'll need to make a dining reservation at California Grill. They currently offer an innovative three-course tasting menu celebrating the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration, and some evenings also feature a new exclusive event - Celebration at the Top: 50th Flavors & Fireworks!

    If you will not be dining at California Grill, there are still great spots to watch fireworks at Disney's Contemporary Resort. My favorite is the small outdoor public space on the fourth floor of the Resort facing Magic Kingdom Park - it's a great spot to experience the Disney Enchantment fireworks! You'll just want to time your reservation at Steakhouse 71 to ensure you can experience them either before or after dining.

    I hope this helps your continued planning - please let me know if any other questions come up!
