Bonnet Creek Fireworks Views

I see from the We LOOOOOOOVE BC posts that:

"Building 1 (Torre de la Tierra) has 7 floors. Even numbered units face the lake.
Building 2 (Torre del Vinto) has 9 floors. Even numbered units face the lake
Building 3 (Torre del Mar) has 9 floors. Even numbered units face the lake.
Building 4 (Torre del Cielo) has 15 floors. Odd numbered units face the lake.
Building 5 (Torre de la Luna) has 15 floors. Odd numbered units face the lake.
Building 6 (Torre del Sol) has 19 floors. Odd numbered units face the lake."

If we're hoping for fireworks views (knowing we can't pre request) - do we want non lake facing views? Any help would be appreciated, particularly if you have an experience with a specific room. We're a 2br2ba.

THANKS.

Because of how the buildings are positioned 1, 2, & 3 you would face the water and see the fireworks but only from the upper floors. Bldgs 4 & 5 you want the parking lot view as that is the part of the building the faces the Disney property. The higher up you are the better the view. You need to clear the parking structure by bldg. 4 & 5. 6 is a toss up because of the angle. Some upper floors will see the lake and the fireworks. no guarantee that the parking lot view will see the fireworks because of the angle of the structure.
Bldg 1 - Torre de la Tierra - that has the sample unit they tour with folks can be opened up to view the fireworks. You just have to ask at the main check in desk. It is on the top floor and faces the lake and you can view the fireworks from the porch. At least this was the policy several ago - it may have changed.

Because of the angle of Tower ,you could have a lake view and fireworks or a lake view and no fireworks. We will be in 1719 with a lake view and maybe the fireworks from Fantasmic at DHS. I do not anticipate being able to see the MK or Epcot fireworks. You really want the end unit on that building. If you are in a 4 bedroom, 4 bath I think you will see all fireworks and the lake too as the porch appears to be the width of the building so you have a wide view angle. I anticipate being farther down the hallway and the curve of the building will block my view of Epcot. I will just have to wait until I arrive to know for sure. The fireworks are such a short amount of time each day and I was more interested in the long run which would be the lake view all day long.

We stayed on the 16th floor in Building 6 facing the lake and had an excellent view of all the fireworks. When you are that high up, you clear all the other buildings and can clearly see all the parks from your balcony. We were staying in a presidential suite, which is what you need to be up that high.

Also, just want to mention that we were on an end unit, which helped. We were the last room at the end of the hall, so excellent view!
