    We are staying in a garden view room at the contemporary. Is there a place where we can watch the fireworks from at the hotel other than California grill? Thanks!

    Hi, Heather! Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Disney's Contemporary Resort is one of my favorite Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. With its spectacular views of Magic Kingdom Park and the monorail breezing right through the lobby, staying here really puts you right in the middle of the magic.

    One of the best perks of staying at Disney's Contemporary Resort is that you can view the Happily Ever After Fireworks right from your resort hotel. There is an outdoor patio observation area on level four of the main building that guests may use for fireworks viewing. Level four is where the gift shops, Chef Mickey's, and Contempo Cafe are located.

    You will have a great view of the fireworks from the observation area at Disney's Contemporary Resort, and the music is even piped in to add to your enjoyment of the show. Viewing the fireworks from your resort hotel is a wonderful experience. However, one of the most breathtaking aspects of Happily Ever After is the projection effects on Cinderella Castle. Therefore, if you have the chance, I would also recommend viewing Happily Ever After inside Magic Kingdom Park, near the castle, once as well.

    Have a magical day!
