Disneyland Hotel/Fireworks view

Hi, Does anyone know if there is a view from the hotel for the fireworks show? I have heard about it at the PPH but not the DLH .
Thanks!

There is no viewing deck that I am aware of. I think you can see them form the concierge lounge but many of the rooms in the towers (particularly the Fantasy) have great views of the fireworks.

I was able to see the fireworks from our DLH hotel room. I think we were in the Fantasy Tower facing the ugly front parking lot/driveway. It was nice being able to see the fireworks at night since my 5yo, who had just dropped her nap, couldn't make it much past 8am (this was her first trip with no afternoon break.)

We were able to view the fireworks from our room as well. I'm not sure what tower it was in, but, we faced the parking lot.

We had a pretty good view and we turned on the firework music (not sure what channel that was on, sorry) and while it didn't really go perfect with it - it still felt magical. They should, however, put the entire show music and voiceovers on the channel so it feels exactly as if we were in front of Cinderella Castle but as I said, the music didn't ruin the experience.

Have fun on your trip!

We are here now in Fantasy tower in a standard room facing the parking lot, 11th floor. We can see the fireworks from our window. It's a view from the side but still nice. You can't see any of the castle but we can see the top of BTMR.

If you view DLR with Google Maps I think it gives a pretty good idea of where you can view the fireworks from. We've had some great views from our rooms in the Adventure tower.

We were able to enjoy the Fireworks late one night swimming in the Grand Californian's Heated Pool. Our Kids enjoyed the Show while swimming.

We were able to see the fireworks from our room at the DLH. We were in the Fantasy Tower, 11th floor facing the parking lot. It was a really terrible view during the day, but my boys didn't care. It was nice to be able to see the fireworks without paying for a "premium view".

From our DLH 10th floor, Adventureland Tower east-facing room (concierge) we were able to see both Magical fireworks and a small portion of World of Color.

I can tell you one place it's very difficult to see the fireworks from while at DLH--a 7th floor room in the middle of the building (as opposed to the edge) facing the pool in the Frontier Tower! We had to crane our necks to try and see it on the far right side of the window. But I was more concerned about noise from DTD so I requested Frontier. Have fun!

We booked a standard but were upgraded to a premium view in Frontier. We were on the 11th floor with a pool and DTD/DL view. We were far enough in the corner that the Adventure tower didn't block our view.
