a trip up to the TOTWL, have some drinks, watch fireworks?

watch the electrical water pageant

movies under the stars

parasailing bay lake, or fishing if you like

we like to hop on the monorail and visit the other resorts, poly & GF

and you are so close to WL, they have wonderful trails for walking or bike rentals!

Best of all, sitting out on the balcony taking in all the sights and sounds.

Whatever you decide have a great time! We love BLT!
Top of the World Lounge for drink and fireworks.
California Grill (they dim the lights and pipe in music for the fireworks.
Take the monorail, eat at Ohana's, sit on the beach and watch the fireworks (piped in music there too)
As someone else suggested... sit on your balcony and enjoy the views!
Watch the parade and fireworks on mainstreet and enjoy the walk back to BLT without the worries of a cramped monorail.
Have fun!

are you going to the parks? or just enjoying the resort?

love it here. here right now - so if any questions just ask.

the view is standard - lake to the right, tennis court left, further left is the MK. So can see the fireworks from here to night.

so will probably do that - tomorrow night will probably see the fireworks from TOW.

this place makes you spend - more than OKW did - just brought a picture of BLT/CR for $35.00.
