    Are the fireworks loud at the Contemporary Resort?

    If you're outside you can hear them. If you're inside your room they are muffled, but you can still hear them "pop." But they're not as loud as the Electric Water Pageant is while inside your room.



    ETA: Thought I should explain that we always stay on the Bay Lake side of the Tower and not the MK side.

    The last few times I have also heard the Wishes fireworks from the Bay Lake View rooms, however that's if I happened to be standing on the balcony.

    When we stayed on the 14th fl, we heard them loud & clear. Also heard the Electrial Parade (muffled).

    I've heard the fireworks set off car alarms in the parking lot - is that true?

    Thanks everyone! :goodvibes I was thinking about switching to a MK View room at the Contemporary. DS (5) is still scared of fireworks because of the noise, so I wasn't sure if they were really loud. Sounds like you can hear them, but they aren't super loud; he would be ok with a pop or a small boom, and he would probably even like it.
