Which is 'least good' for watching fireworks?

Which of these locations is your least favoured for watching fireworks?
- Narcoosees / or GF beach after eating there
- Poly beach after eating at 'Ohana
- California Grill (we'll be in WDW after it reopens in the summer)

We're intending to eat at all 3, but at one of them we'll eat earlier and go back into MK. The other 2 we'll time our meal to fit with viewing and linger....

I haven't been to the Poly beach, but I like the view from both CA Grill and Narcoossee's. You really can't go wrong at any of the locations you've picked.

For me, based on what I've read, I think an earlier 'Ohana is better. I've read that as the night progresses, the wait time to be seated (even with an ADR) can be long. So based on that, I would do fireworks from Narcoossee's and CA Grill and then an earlier ADR for 'Ohana and back to the MK for fireworks.

This is the angle from Narcoossee's veranda:

This is the angle from California Grill's observation deck:

Interesting question. I'd say that the Poly beach is the "most good" of these three because its a face-on view with the fireworks appearing to go off right over the castle.

The other two are closer so they get points for that. If you don't find it odd that the fireworks go off in a different direction then I'd give the edge to CG over Narcoossees.

Thank you for your replies... Good point about the wait times at 'Ohana. That might swing it actually. Plus the signatures will be nicer not to feel there's a deadline to be met.
