    We will be at WDW during the 4th of July weekend and will be staying at the Wilderness Lodge. Can you see the MK fireworks from this resort?

    Hi Melissa,

    How exciting! We were at Disney World for the Fourth of July two years ago. Be ready, it will be hot and crowded, but there was no better place to enjoy America's freedom then at Disney World.

    Wilderness Lodge is our Disney Vacation Club property so we have spent many trips there. It is a gorgeous resort with a towering open lobby and amazing woodwork. You feel like you have stepped into a  Northern lodge the minute you step into the lobby. Part of the beauty and peacefulness of Wilderness Lodge, is the abundance of towering pines and trees that circle the property. Unfortunately for what the trees lend in beauty, they take away in visibility. While we have had a little luck catching an occasional glimpse of Wishes from the front of the resort or down near the dock, but there is no location that offers a full, unobstructed view of the fireworks show.

    If you are looking to avoid the Magic Kingdom crowds, you may want to head over to Fort Wilderness and enjoy the show from their beach. Hope you have a wonderful time!
