    We are staying at the Contemp. Tower, MK view so our 5 year old can watch fireworks, then go directly to bed. Will we see the water parade on Bay Lake from our hotel beach? Where is a good place for this? Polynesian? What time 2/27-3/2 will it run?


    When I stayed at the Contemporary last December, I really enjoyed being able to see the water pageant from my balcony, but I had a Bay Lake view. If you'll have a Magic Kingdom view, you're correct that you'll need to go outside to enjoy it.

    There's no need to go to the Polynesian to see it, as it travels near the piers of all of the resorts on Bay Lake and Seven Seas Lagoon, including the Contemporary. You can sit and enjoy it from one of the beach chairs on the sand near the pool or you just stand on the pier.  The parade runs every night and performs at the Contemporary around 10:00 p.m.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
