    Best Western Lake Buena Vista Resort Hotel in the Downtown Disney area. All rooms have balconies, and I had a Disney view - saw the higher-shot fireworks from both Magic Kingdom and Epcot. Nice clean place, too. I travel alone, and I felt very comfortable there.

    Wyndham Bonnet Creek. We were in Building #5, top floor, balcony. We could see DHS and part of EPCOT, I believe. Great hotel.

    DTD Hilton - has rooms that you can see the fireworks, we have stayed there several times, very nice clean room and wonderful service. We did not have a balcony but a very large window.

    The Swan and Dophlin both have balcony rooms with veiws. Stayed one time at each with balcony, and veiw of Epcots fireworks. Rooms where nice and would stay again.

    The Hilton at Bonnet Creek has rooms that are fairly close and you can see almost everything. We were right near the top of the building (no balconies) and could see the All Star and CBR real well. The Swan and Dolphin where looming and we could see all 4 parks and the fireworks.

    This is a somewhat blown up view from our room at the Bonnet Creek Hilton.

    Wyndham Lake Buena Vista has Disney view rooms in a tower.
    It is right next to DTD. No balconies in the tower rooms.
    The hotel itself is nice, we were there in early Feb and I think they've been doing a lot of constructions and approvements since then.

    the one closer is the CBR

    the ones further away are the Dolphin and Swan (non-owned WDW hotels on Disney property). they do have sales.

    Not everyone mentions whether their unit is presidential or not, but I know there are labeled presidential pictures there. :)
