02 Oct Can You See Fireworks From Wilderness Lodge?
Disney’s Wilderness Lodge has amazing views of Bay Lake and the surrounding trees and wooded areas. But there’s another view Disney fans are always curious about. Can you see fireworks from Wilderness Lodge? Let’s discuss the different view options from rooms and around the resort property below.
Can You See Fireworks From Wilderness Lodge?
It is possible to see fireworks from a few different places around Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. The best viewing spot will be by the Geyser Point area along the waters of Bay Lake. They also play the firework music that accompanies the show here which is always a nice touch. Fireworks are always awesome but you get a more full experience when you can hear the accompanying music and narration. This space serves an even better view of the Electrical Water Pageant. This light up boat show has been around since the beginning and was refurbished for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World.
There are actual Nature Fireworks View rooms you can book as well. Rooms with better views usually have a premium price. Disney is pretty careful about saying firework view unless they mean it though. Sometimes you’ll even end up getting a partial firework view by surprise because Disney makes sure the official firework view rooms have a superior view.
There are also quite a few places around the resort and grounds where you may get a surprise firework view. For example, in the side of the building closest to Magic Kingdom, each floor with rooms kind of turns a corner and has windows about halfway down. From these hall windows it’s possible to see the fireworks over the trees though you won’t hear the music. It’s not ideal but it is a fun bonus to enjoy at the end of the night if you happen to be walking down the hall or would just like to pop out of your room to see fireworks.
There is a firework viewing spot from the concierge lounge as well. It’s a very small patio a few floors up.
Disney’s Wilderness Lodge has two Disney Vacation Club properties: Copper Creek Villas and Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge and Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. You can see fireworks from some of the cabins but, again, Disney makes sure that if they claim a room has a fireworks view, it’s a good one and it’s guaranteed. Not all of the cabins have a great firework view, depending on which way they face or what kind of plans nature has with trees and such. Hence, on the website there is not a firework view category cabin to book. Note that the view category does affect the point value to rent a room. The Boulder Ridge building is on the opposite side of the resort with splendid nature views but no guaranteed firework views. Depending on where your room is, it may be possible. Rooms in either DVC building on higher floors that face Magic Kingdom and don’t have another building or trees in the way are your best bet. With shows like Disney Enchantment that have very large product that goes off very high in the sky, your chances of seeing fireworks from your room, or different places around the resort, are much better. Some Disney Vacation Club rooms at other resorts do have a firework view. For example, at The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa it’s possible to book a Resort Studio with a Theme Park View of Magic Kingdom.
