If you booked a theme park view, you'll have a good view of the park and the fireworks. There are three different room view catagories...standard, lake and theme park.

If you have a theme park view, then any room you get will have an excellent view of the fireworks. We have stayed in theme park rooms twice and both times the fireworks display was amazing.

We had a 1 BR "lake view" once at BLT. We could certainly see the lake, but also had a really good side view of MK. I can't imagine that if you paid for the "theme park view" you wouldn't look straight on into MK. The view probably gets better the higher you are.

Fireworks viewing is excellent from the "theme park" views, but I have to say - the "theme park" view isn't really all that great since you're really pretty far away from the park. Most of what you actually see is just a giant parking lot.

The Bay Lake views, in my opinion, are really spectacular.

Thx for all of the replies. Lakeview wasn't available for 7 days. We were thrilled to get theme park since we will be traveling with twin toddlers & their parents.

Now thats interesting...MK view was available but lake view was not...I always thought MK view was grabbed up first. I have read some posts about MK view not being all that great and I can attest that our view from the 8th floor looking south to WL and even as far as Epcot was the best view from any WDW resort so far and that was lake view. We could also see around to the GF and of course the CR as well.
