There’s a quaint lazy river at this resort and a sand bottom pool. Disney’s Beach Club has beautiful views of Crescent Lake. There’s another view Disney fans are always wondering about when it comes to resort hotels. Can you see fireworks from Beach Club resort? Yes!

Beach Club Firework Viewing Spots

It’s possible to see fireworks from a few different places around this Disney resort and DVC property. Beach Club has some decent viewing spots of Epcot’s nighttime spectacular fireworks that are high up. The lower pyrotechnics on and around World Showcase and the lagoon may not be visible from Beach Club. There are some lovely spots to watch the big fireworks in the sky from though and some locations even have the show music playing.

In addition to staying there, it’s possible to stay at a different resort and simply visit to shop or dine at a restaurant at the Beach Club resort. Then you can stay and enjoy the fireworks from one of the viewing spots mentioned below.

Can you see fireworks from Beach Club Disney Rooms?

Rooms with better views usually come at a premium price. Disney is careful about promising a special view unless they mean it. What you’ll actually usually be looking for to get a firework view is usually called a Theme Park View category room. Sometimes you’ll even end up getting a partial firework view by surprise because Disney makes sure the official theme park view rooms have a superior view. Often, if you can see a theme park from your room, it’s likely you will be able to see the fireworks over it. The angle of your view and anything obstructing your view might change that. In the case of Beach Club, things are a little different. 

You’ll find a Water View, Resort View, Garden View or Standard View room selection here depending on what style of room you’re looking for. No Theme Park View rooms are sold. According to the Disney Vacation Club point charts for Disney’s Beach Club Villas, there are not different room view types to choose from. However, the planDisney panel shares that you may be able to see Epcot fireworks from a few rooms on the top floors of Disney’s Beach Club Villas. Unfortunately, there isn’t really a way to definitely book a firework view room at Disney’s Beach Club Resort. Some rooms just happen to face the right direction toward Epcot and the fireworks. There isn’t a category to book that will guarantee that view at Beach Club.


Where can you see the fireworks at Beach Club Resort?

It makes a difference when you can hear the firework show soundtrack while you watch. Many places around Disney resorts will play the show music in sync with each nightly showing. At Beach Club, there doesn’t seem to be a place to watch where the music is played. Around resorts, it’s hard to know which direction you’re facing in terms of the parks. Even though Beach Club is right next to Epcot, some spots are better than others when viewing the fireworks.

Beach Club Beach Firework View

There is a white, sandy beach on the lake at Disney’s Beach Club Resort. It’s near the International Gateway entrance at Epcot and you’ll find some bench swings and loungers to relax on here. If you face west you can see some of the most beautiful sunsets from the beach at Disney’s Beach Club Resort. After the sun sets, the Epcot fireworks will be the opposite direction but the view from here is not good. 

There are some nice chairs and you may think this is a decent spot to watch the fireworks from. This is an ok viewing spot in some areas though I’d say the view from the lighthouse dock is much better. Because the beach is so big and there are some trees around, you may need to move a bit once the fireworks start so you have the best view. The further from the park the better. You will really just see the tops of fireworks above the trees from the beach. You will not hear the show music in this area.

Can you see fireworks from Beach Club? Yes, these are both from the lighthouse dock nearby.

Lighthouse Boat Dock

Disney’s Beach Club Resort is connected to Disney’s Yacht Club Resort and shares many amenities with the property. Though they have separate parking lots and entrances, the two share a pool and water play complex and boat launch. When guests want to get on a boat to Epcot or Hollywood Studios, the lighthouse at the end of a dock on the water leads the way. This dock makes for a perfect firework viewing spot, the best at the resort actually. You can see the fireworks reflecting off of the water in front of you and there usually aren’t many people watching from here. With its low lighting and quiet setting, the lighthouse boat dock is one of the most relaxed firework viewing areas at Disney. You will not hear the show music in this area either, probably because this is meant to be a space where boat passengers are coming and going. However, there is plenty of space to watch from here.

Fireworks from the bridge in between Beach Club and BoardWalk

One of the best features of the Crescent Lake Epcot area resorts is how easy it is to visit the nearby resorts and parks. There is a bridge that connect Disney’s Beach Club Resort to Disney’s BoardWalk Resort. Here you are pretty close to Epcot and get a nice view of the big fireworks in the sky. The show music is not played on this bridge and you’re a bit too far from the park speakers to hear it clearly. For a better view, stand in the middle of the bridge or closer to the Boardwalk side.

Can you see fireworks from Beaches and Cream?

Disney’s Beach Club Resort has some memorable meals to enjoy on your trip. Beaches & Cream Soda Shop is a fan favorite that serves up delicious ice cream desserts and hamburgers. Beaches & Cream is located on a corridor behind the pool. You won’t be able to see fireworks from inside this restaurant.

In addition, Cape May Cafe is a buffet at Beach Club. Because it’s located off of the lobby in an interior building, you can not really see fireworks from here either. Your best option if you’re dining at either of these is to try to time your meal so you are able to get to a better spot for fireworks before or after. 

Can you see Magic Kingdom fireworks from Beach Club resort?

Disney’s Beach Club Resort is an Epcot area resort. This means it’s located close to that park. Magic Kingdom is on the other side of property. From across the way at Disney’s BoardWalk, if you look over the Yacht Club and Beach Club building you may see the tallest of Magic Kingdom’s fireworks going off in the distance.
