    Hi! I'm aware that the boardwalk is close to H.S. and EPCOT. Which is the best spot to be on the boardwalk to catch fireworks? T.I.A.!

    Hi Tori,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I love staying at Disney's BoardWalk Villas because the location is perfect. As you know, you are a quick walk away from EPCOT's International Gateway and the brand-new Disney Skyliner. A 15-minute walk in the other direction (or a boat ride, or a gondola ride!) places you smack in the middle of an intergalactic hideaway!

    I am assuming you want to see EPCOT's nightly fireworks. I recently attended a Fireworks Dessert Party and got to see "Epcot Forever" up close. It was dazzling! There are two spots on the BoardWalk where you should get a decent view. If you head towards Atlantic Dance Hall and Jellyrolls, you should be able to see the fireworks above the treetops. You can also head towards EPCOT and watch at the top of the bridge close to Disney's Beach Club Villas. That spot gets a bit crowded, so you might want to get there EARly.

    You can catch a glimpse of Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular from Disney's Beach Club Resort beach. If you look towards the Swan and Dolphin Hotels, you should be able to see some of the show above the trees. You can also walk towards Disney's Hollywood Studios along the pathway from Disney's BoardWalk Villas. Once you get close, face towards the Park (with your back to the water) for a sneak peek.

    Tori, remember that both of the nighttime spectaculars have pyrotechnics that can only be seen inside the Parks. So, if you want to watch the whole show, check your My Disney Experience app for times and head inside the Parks. ChEARs!
