We always arrive around 11:00am. In 3 trips, room has become ready at 2,3 and 4.

Menus

Someone had mentioned in a previous comment that the pool bar had a great krispy kreme burger--I searched online and found the location and info! So I thought I would share the link to the menu at the "Back Bay Pool Bar":

I know tower/room requests are usually a crap shoot, but if I had the choice I would prefer a pool or lake view unit over a fireworks view (lake and pool can be enjoyed all the time, while fireworks have a very limited window of enjoyment). I have somewhere in this thread that there is a fireworks viewing room for guests. Has anyone tried this? Is there seating available? How busy is it usually?

If you can get a high floor on tower three you can get both. Yes the other towers partially obstruct some of the low flying pyrotechnics but I saw the ones at epcot from the top floor of tower three right outside the elevators.

the balcony of our room faced the parking lot, I think the only time we ever went on the balcony was to see if the wifi strength was any better. I was super excited about trying to get a fireworks view and was initially dissapointed in the room we go but it ended up being a blessing a the kids like the pool right outside of tower three ( with the blue twisty slide the best) and the bar/restaurant there was pretty good.

We have watched the fireworks from the 4 bedroom suite on the top floor of the Torre de la Tierra building - the unit is the one that they show to folks when doing the timeshare tour. It has chairs and chaise lounges on the porch. There were several families the night we went up.

Do all towers have viewing areas on the roof?
If not what towers do have the viewing areas?

I think that there is a specific room to watch the fireworks but I dont know what tower it is in. If your question was to me, where I watched the epcot fireworks was not so much a room but the window on the top floor of tower three. I was not the only one to watch them from there but it is not a dedicated room

There's a room in the main building. When we checked in the parking pass lady told us we could watch from there.

Is this unit left opened or do we have to ask to watch fireworks from here?

Towels, no. Pods were useful but we bought them in Orlando. The dishwater soap was okay but we did not cook much. I'd say tall kitchen bags would be worth getting, we didn't get a lot of them and they make passable dirty clothes hampers. We brought shampoo/conditioner they had some but they were pretty small.

We bought coffee filters with coffee but never ended up using the bought filters.

You can get towels at the pools ( signed to your room) I was super concerned about returning them but it was easy peasy.

Sorry but I've got to ask.......laundry basket? Really?

To answer the question. No.
Does this mean you will be bringing a laundry basket with you I when you travel? Flying or driving?
This one has me
