Smile Can you see fireworks from DTD?

If we were to be at DTD during Disneyland's fireworks display, would we be able to see them very well? Thanks!

I was in DTD two weeks ago, and saw the fireworks there. They are great, but you do miss out on the music and other stuff that happens in the park. I had a great view in front of Tortilla Joe's. There's a big planter there, with a pretty unobstructed view.

As the other poster stated, yes you can but you can even watch them in front of Disneyland in the esplanade as well. Lots of people sit and watch and its probably the best view outside of the park. DTD is fine too but not as good as the esplanade IMO. And you get to sit!

I've never done it personally, but I've heard there is a great view from the top of the parking structure.

There was a good amount of people sitting on/around the big planter ledge, enjoying the fireworks in DTD. I can imagine that the esplanade would be a really nice choice. You just have to go through bag-check.

I actually did this once last summer! Its good BUT its not quite as special seeing it from DTD or esplanade (assuming you're not in the park obviously). You get great (unobstructed) views obviously but I prefer to see it on the ground. Its a bit too distant for me.

But yes, I would say if people want to do it once, they definitely should! It IS cool, I just prefer DTD/esplanade more.

Where are you staying? PPH pipes the music into the pool area so you can't watch and listen from there, but you do have to be a hotel guest.
You can see them from the Esplanade or DTD but you won't hear the soundtrack and personally I think much of what makes the fireworks so great is the soundtrack. Best of luck!
