    Hello 6 of us will be traveling to WDW during the 4th of July this year. 4 adults 2 teenagers age 16. What would be the best resort for us & be able to see the Epcot fireworks? This is our first trip!!

    Hi Jodi,

    Fourth of July at the Walt Disney World! What fun you will have!

    Unlike Wishes in Magic Kingdom, Illuminations at Epcot is a different show. While there are fireworks, most of the show happens in the lagoon around World Showcase. You really lose the show if you are not around the lagoon.

    The Beach Club Resort would have the best view of the fireworks. In addition, the rooms closest to the fireworks are part of the Beach Club Villas which are Disney Vacation Club rooms. These are available first to members of the Disney Vacation Club and then are offered to the public if there is availability. Even here, the view is blocked and I would not recommend it the same way I would recommend the Polynesian Resort for Wishes.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
