EPCOT VIEW at POP CENTURY

What building should we ask for to see the best view of Epcot fireworks at POP resort?

We had a great view from the 50s section, Tramp building (I think 3...we were on the 4th floor, room 3130 & 31???) on the backside, overlooking the lake, AoA AND great view of the fireworks. In fact, I actually SAT on our bed with the door open, taking shots one night. It was so magical and unexpected for us! Epcot was larger, but we could still see Wishes as well. You'll want the high floor (which we loved, very quiet!)

I believe the jukebox building (2?) you can see the the right in my shots, also has a good view.





this was the shot from the bed:

Note that you will only see the higher fireworks from any EPCOT area resort. Much of Illuminations takes place at lagoon level and can only be seen from inside EPCOT.

In my early days of researching I remember seeing a map of POP and it highlighted the areas and had the buildings and room numbers marked where you can see the fireworks from. Does anyone know where I can find this map, I figured I could easily find it again, boy was I wrong. I had no idea there were so many boards, forums and blogs about WDW!

Thank you!

Found these. Not sure if you can read the numbers?



Here's the 50s, too if interested (rotated 90 degrees clockwise compared to image above.



I found links to these images in first post of POP Century ~ Unofficially the Grooviest FAQ Thread #6 ~April 2012, just under pictures of the refrigerators

The problem with requesting a specific room number is that if that room isn't available, they're not going to know why you wanted it, and therefore won't know what a suitable replacement might be. I would just ask for a room with a fireworks or Epcot view.
