Amazing Disney Homes

Are you able to see the fireworks at night from any of these homes and if not, where is the best place to rent and be able to watch the fireworks from the comfort of your own space. We may be coming in Dec./Jan. with seven kids ranging in age from 17 to 1.

You may be able to see the fireworks from those that are in the Lindfields area but please don't base your vacation on that. We've stayed at a few homes in the Formosa Gardens area that had a fireworks view and it's not too impressive from that distance (which would be the same as the Lindfields area). You'll only be able to see the highest ones and they're too far away. After the first night we didn't even bother to watch again. Get a home that has the amenities you want and don't bother about the fireworks view. Just my humble opinion of course.

I agree with Wanda -you used to be able to see the fireworks -and have a good view from many homes - but that was years back before trees and buildings got in the way.If there is a view now it may not be much of one -it is probably better to find a home that suits your family and not worry too much over the fireworks.
