Hello, Couponing to Disney readers! Did you know that Disney’s Contemporary Resort is as close as you can get to the Magic Kingdom? Boasting views of Tomorrowland’s Space Mountain, Cinderella’s Castle, and Bay Lake, the Disney’s Contemporary Resort is within walking distance to the Magic Kingdom. Literally steps away from the Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Contemporary Resort has the monorail running right through it! It doesn’t get more classic Disney than that! The Contemporary Resort and its companion, Bay Lake Tower, are the first Disney resorts I’m going to share with you in the Bay Lake area.
Can I see Fireworks from the Contemporary Resort? Yes, you can. You have a few options to see Happily Ever After from this location. One, is from your resort room, if you booked a Theme Park View room. Another option is to have dinner at the California Grill. By dining here, you are granted access to the 15th Floor Observation Deck to watch Happily Ever After. Your last option would be to visit the public access Observation Deck on the 4th Floor of the Contemporary Resort.
