    We are visiting WDW this coming fall and are interested in being able to see Magic Kingdom, castle and fireworks from our room balcony. can you advise best hotel and room #s?

    HI Lisa!

    This is a great question.  You will want to stay in the Contemporary Resort (which includes Bay Lake Tower), the Polynesian, or the Grand Floridian.  All three resorts have Magic Kingdom view rooms; you have to book such a room when you make your reservation.  The Contemporary Resort gives you the closest views of the Magic Kingdom, but the Polynesian Resort is directly across Seven Seas Lagoon from Cinderella Castle.  I like the Polynesian Resort view the best if I'm interested in watching the fireworks at night from a hotel; otherwise I like the view from the Contemporary best.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
