There’s something so special about enjoying a day together at one of the Disney World parks and finishing things off by watching the spectacular fireworks. Still, sometimes it’s not possible – the kids are tired, and you’re ready to get home. So why not pick a hotel that gives you an ideal view of the fireworks from your room so you can comfortably watch them every night? Here are some of the best to choose from.

1. Westgate Lakes
Westgate Lakes offers fantastic views and seven outdoor pools, so you have everything you need for a memorable stay in Orlando.
When you choose Westgate Lakes, one of the exceptional Westgate Resorts hotels, you’re already very close to Disney – about seven minutes, in fact (and only four minutes from Universal Studios) – so it makes sense that this could be the best base to watch the Disney fireworks from too. Each room has its own mini fridge, flatscreen TV, and jetted tub, and whether you watch from your room or outside around one of the seven outdoor pools, the choice is yours, and the view will be great.

2. Disney’s Contemporary Resort
Disney’s Contemporary Resort offers exceptional views of the fireworks, located by the entrance to the Magic Kingdom. It is worth booking if you want to see the display up close.
It might not come as much of a surprise to find that a Disney Resort hotel offers exceptional views of the Disney fireworks, but it’s worth adding to this list because Disney’s Contemporary Resort is something very special (apart from its fireworks views). Located right by the entrance to Disney’s Magic Kingdom, you can even take the famous monorail from your hotel to the park, giving you an added element of adventure to your stay. This ultra-modern-looking hotel is comfortable and has everything you might want, including pools and access to the Seven Seas Lagoon, where you can go for a boat ride or even go fishing.

3. Four Seasons Resort Orlando
With a brilliant view of the fireworks, The Four Seasons Resort Orlando offers a room in the heart of the Walt Disney World Resort.
The Four Seasons Resort Orlando is part of the Walt Disney World Resort, but there’s a lot more to this place than ‘just’ Disney magic (and great views of the fireworks, of course). Here you’ll find the on-site golf course – the Tranquilo Golf Course – for added elements of relaxation when you’re not out in the Magic Kingdon, Epcot, or anywhere else. Plus, there’s Explorer Island that the kids will love – it’s an adventure water park where they can spend hours splashing around. Go to the spa for a relaxing massage and some me time, and then enjoy a family dinner at the on-site steakhouse, Capa, where you’ll be treated to views of the fireworks andthe 26 acres all around you.

4. Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort
The Grand Floridian Resort is an ideal place to stay if you want to add a touch of luxury to make your Disney trip a memorable one.
If you’re looking for something really special when it comes to finding the ideal hotel to watch the Disney World fireworks from, Disney’s very own Grand Floridan Resort is that special hotel. This is a luxurious and lavish place to stay, and although it’s top budget, it’s well worth every penny. Decorated in an elegant Victorian style, there’s so much to enjoy about the Grand Floridian, including the monorail straight to the Magic Kingdom (or you can walk – it’s so close by), the gorgeous Grand Floridian Café for a delicious lunch or light snack, and the Enchanted Rose bar for sumptuous cocktails to round the day off perfectly.
