Cont Tower Theme Park View question -- what floors should we request for best firework viewing?

Cont Tower door question -- can we decorate with magnets, or will we need poster putty or masking tape?

thanks for any info!

Just switched our July reservation from BWI to CR tower theme park view. Cannot wait to be able to see the fireworks and the castle from our room.

Theoretically the higher the better but you can't really go wrong on any floor. you might want to request a room closer to the park side.

Generally people don't decorate their doors in the Deluxes. Any floor will give you a great view of the fireworks, but higher floor will get you further above eye level for the parking lot.

Thanks for the hints. Last time we were in the Garden Wing, we decorated our door with a poster we had made but I don't remember how we hung it. Lots of people signed it. Guess I'll just decorate the mirror in the bathroom for us.

I'm new on the board so forgive me if this has been asked addressed somewhere. We just booked a STD-CLUB-KING. The cast member said the room is on the 14th floor but could not guarantee a MKV. If I'm looking at this thread correctly, the only kings are MKV. So why wouldn't the cast member say that? I'm confused and really hoping for a MKV when we go Oct 3rd.

to the DIS and the CR/BLT thread! You've done your research. There are only 5 non-suite rooms on the 14th floor, two of which are KINGS with only MKVs. It's possible the CM couldn't "guarantee" a MKV because they are unable to actually book views up on the 14th floor, but they can add view requests to your reservation, (which is moot with the KING booking). You can, however, book a KING, and because you've done your research, you know that it will be a MKV. The CM may not even know this.

Thanks! this thread has been a wealth of information. I will be going with my 17 year old and we are hoping to get some of her senior pictures done around the resort. We'd welcome any ideas for fun shots or location.

Are you taking the pictures yourself? We used a local photographer for our Disney wedding that works at the resort all the time and he was phenomenal and very well priced! Let me know if you want any info

We are checking with one local photographer and Dianey Fine Art Photography. Any suggestions would be welcome so we get the best product for a reasonable price.

We've reached out to a local photographer but haven't received anything back yet. We are also looking at Disney Fine Art Photography. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

We used Disney Photog for our Magic Kingdom photo shoot because they don't allow outside photographers to do that, but for our wedding at the pavilion we used Randy Chapman. He is phenomenal and his photography was comparable (if not better) than the Disney photogs!

When checking in at BLT, do you physically check in at the Contemporary and not BLT?
