I've never been out on that deck. What effect does the monorail track have on the view of the fireworks?

Here is a picture of the Magic Kingdom from the 4th floor observation deck, so you can see exactly what the view will look like.

Thanks. Was that taken from the Seven Seas Lagoon side of the track? And is there lots of room for spectators on that side?

It was taken on the side closer to Seven Seas Lagoon. As for their being room for others yes there is and if you saw that picture posted by CoachBagFanatic the observation deck is one big area.

Sure. It's a pretty big deck. But looking at the photo (and the one from Greysword) , I thought it looked like most of the observation area was on the Bay Lake side of the tracks. So I wondered if that caused a viewing problem for most of the people out there. Or is there normally plenty of room for everyone to stand on the 7SL side.

If you want to stand on the side close to Seven Seas Lagoon there is plenty of room and if you want to be sure of that get there early to reserve your space over there.

Thanks everyone, but I can not take credit for the picture. I found it online, as I was searching for a pic to get a view of the area that would give a good idea spatially.

As for BLT room prices, mine cost just under $8,000 , of course I am a DVC member, so it provides a long use time on the ticket. They are fairly expensive to rent through CRO, though.

CR is my favorite resort, and I'm grateful to CRResortFan for keeping these Cr threads looking sharp!

Understood. So would you say the view from the Bay Lake side is obscured?

Honestly it has been a long time since I watched Wishes from there, so I can't say what it's like from the Bay Lake side. The reason is when I stayed at the Contemporary it was Club Level and I got to watch Wishes from the lounge balcony on the 12th floor.

Hey there everyone. Is there a site dedicated to Contemporary? Not just a thread, but a site that has detailed info about Bay lake tower etc? Perhaps best MK View room and floor to be on??? I still would like a site if anyone knows of one that exists.

Thanks

Don
