    Hi! We are non-Vacation club members staying at Bay Lake Tower in Sept. We have a lake view studio deluxe villa. Would we have any views of the magic kingdom fireworks from our room? Or be able to go anywhere at BLT to view them?

    Hi Amanda,

    Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is one of my favorite places to stay at Walt Disney World.  I love the modern theme, and the ability to walk to Magic Kingdom Park is wonderful.

    The lake view villas have views of Bay Lake and are lovely.  Typically these villas look over a pool area and out into Bay Lake.  I really enjoy this view because I find it peaceful.  There are often boats on Bay Lake, and sometimes you can even watch people parasailing.  At night, you will likely be able to see the Electrical Water Pageant as it floats by.  There are a few lake view villas which also have a glimpse of Magic Kingdom Park; however, there are not too many of these.  They tend to have views that are of Bay Lake, a parking lot, and Magic Kingdom Park, so the view of Magic Kingdom Park is limited.  I would assume that you will not be in one of these villas, though it cannot hurt to ask, just realize that there is no guarantee that you would be in one of these villas.  These villas are on the north end of the resort.

    There are a couple of places that you could go to view Wishes Nighttime Spectacular at Disney's Contemporary Resort.  You could make a dinner reservation or simply enjoy a beverage at the bar at the California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort, which offers great views of the fireworks.  Another option is to watch from the bridge which connects Bay Lake Tower to the main building at Disney's Contemporary Resort.  You may also be able to see some of the fireworks from the fourth floor of Disney's Contemporary Resort.

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Amanada.  Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions!
