Question from 1st time Contemporary guests

After 6 straight stays at the Poly we have decided to try the Contemporary for a change. One of the things we love about the Poly is watching Wishes from the beach or the dock complete with piped in music.

I know that the observation deck up by the California Grill is reserved for restaurant guests, but is there another place to watch Wishes with the music at the Contemporary.

TIA.

We like watching Wishes from the 4th floor balcony. Its a differenr angle, but still good. There are even benches to sit on, but get out there early if you want a seat!

You can still go up to the CG without a reservation to eat/drink and watch the fireworks IF there is room in the lounge/bar area.

I would inquire at the second floor check-in desk and use the 4th floor OD as a "back-up plan".

I assume you don't have theme park view? If you do, the music is on your TV and you can watch from your balcony!
