    Hello! I've never been to WDW but am planning a trip for my family. We're considering staying at the Port Orleans Riverside: will we be able to see the nightly fireworks from there?

    Hi Kimberly, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    The fireworks shows are my favorite moments at the Walt Disney World Resort. I'm reminded of what Disney is all about every time I watch one: making dreams come true. There are some Disney Hotels from where you can see the fireworks, and they are all great options. 

    Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Disney's Contemporary Resort and Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort all offer mesmerizing views of Magic Kingdom Park's fireworks. I have once watched the Holiday Wishes from the garden at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and I can still feel the goosebumps.

    There are other three hotels from where the sight of fireworks is breathtaking: Disney's Beach Club Resort, Disney's Yacht Club Resort and Disney's BoardWalk Inn offer beautiful views of the fireworks displayed at Epcot.

    If your vacation still takes you to Disney's Port Orleans - Riverside, you can book a meal at one of the restaurants located at these hotels and combine it with a lovely fireworks viewing walk through their grounds. If you need any assistance to do that, we'd love to help you once again! 

    May the magic be with you!
