    We will be staying at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside.However, not arriving until after 5:00 PM. My 6 yr. old granddaughter will be traveling with us & can't wait to see the fireworks. Can you see them from this resort?

    Hi Mary!

    I think you made a great choice!  Port Orleans Riverside is my favorite Disney Moderate Resort.  Be sure to take the boat one night to Downtown Disney.  It's a very relaxing trip! 

    Unfortunately, you really can't see the fireworks from the resort.  However, you can hear some if you're in a quiet area of the resort.  Wishes and Illuminations obviously come to mind when thinking about fireworks, but don't forget about Fantasmic! in Disney's Hollywood Studios.  It's my favorite nighttime spectacular!

    Enjoy planning and write back if you have any more questions!
