Can you view the MK fireworks from Wilderness Lodge? Was thinking of heading to WL after the AK closes at 6:00 to relax. Have never been there before. Also is there a casual spot at WL to have a drink and may be a bite to eat? Drink and food recommendations welcomed

Thanks

You can view Wishes from the boat transportation dock and from the beach.

The Trout Pass is by the pool near the geyser and they serve drinks. For both food and adult beverages, there is the TERRITORY LOUNGE (http://allears.net/menu/menu_tl.htm) right next to Artist Point.

I also recommend WHISPERING CANYON CAFE (http://allears.net/menu/menu_wc.htm). Lots of fun, good food AND all you care to drink milk shakes!

We had late ADR's at Whispering Canyon (WL) but staying at CR. We had just gotten on the boat back to CR and the fireworks began. The Captain asked if anyone was in a hurry and no one was. So we stopped in the middle of Bay Lake and watched the fireworks. So there is another option. It was pretty special.

Also, call me strange (you won't be the first) but Roaring Forks (WL's quick service snack bar / food counter) is really nice, and I enjoyed the food there more than similar locations at other resorts. It is right by the pool so you could stop in and grab a quick snack.

The boat dock would be my favorite for watching Wishes, but we have also watched it from the North East corner of a long hallway on a high floor in the North wing, where there are windows and a nice view in that direction. It is a hotel hallway, so you won't want to disturb people but it is a nice inside spot with a cool view.
