Hello GetGlowing, Nice to see you here lol. I was thinking of switching the next trips hotel to here.

May be trying to price some spots here. Anyone have suggestions on the best for the buck. We dont need CL here. But maybe a chance at seeing wishes better or even have part of a view of it.

Thanks again...

You can always watch Wishes from the 4th floor observation deck at the Contemporary.

Just past the Fantasia Market store is a set of doors and those take you out onto the 4th floor observation deck.

Initially, the pocket doors did not have locks, but DVC added them last year.

Ohh Ok, very nice. I believe I remember those doors. So what would you recommend for a nice room there with some type of view other than a parking lot? I see enough road here and cars parking everywhere.

Yep, I usually find them by first tracking the walkway to BLT.

An outside view of the deck:

Wow thank you for that shot. I know that was BLT, but was it from your balcony? Also About how much were rooms in there?

Thank you!

And Hi to Venomhatch The 4th Floor Contemporary is a great place to view Wishes from. I got some great snapshots of the fireworks from there. Nice place to set up a tripod, too, because it won't get jostled. The only negative is the parking lot lights can be distracting. But I cropped them out of my photos.

Thanks for the welcome GetGlowing. Yeah I agree, I may even apply a filter to the parking lot lights and darken them down. Yeah I was wondering about tripod room. I almost spent half of what I paid on my camera for it. I don't want it messed up lol.
