    We are staying at Bay Lake Tower in late September with our two grandchildren and want to know how we can go about getting a room on the upper floors to better view the fireworks? Do they take requests after booking?

    Hi Michael! Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World. Your grandchildren are going to love the cool style of Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort. You're just a quick stroll away from Magic Kingdom and the perfect resort to enjoy the "Wishes Nighttime Spectacular" fireworks show that lights up the sky above Cinderella's Castle.

    When you made your reservation, you had the option of selecting the "theme park view" for your villa at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort. Unlike the standard view, these specially designated villas offer the most spectacular view of Disney's Magic Kingdom. As you can imagine, they're very popular and book up very quickly. I suggest calling member services to see what availability they have for your specific travel dates and confirm right away! If you're not able to get the coveted "theme park view" you can request an even-numbered standard villa starting on at least the 5th floor. All is subject to availability.

    If that doesn't work out, don’t worry - just head over to the viewing deck at the "Top of the World Lounge" on the 16th floor. It's exclusive to Disney Vacation Club members from around 5 pm until midnight with an incredible view of the Wishes nighttime spectacular fireworks show. Your grandchildren will be able to see Tinker Bell fly across the sky for a magical nighttime extravaganza just before bedtime!

    I hope your upcoming vacation is magical and memorable.
