    Yes if you turn the TV in your room on channel 19 they play the sound track to Wishes while the fireworks are going off.

    You're welcome.

    You can also hear the Wishes music played at O'hana and CA Grill and the CL lounges. (And, probably a GF restaurant, but I'm not familiar with which one).

    I just added Club Level tip #2 to the 1st page in the Club Level section and here it is.

    If your staying in a Tower Bay Lake View - Club Level room and want to watch the Wishes, go to the lounge on the 12th or 14th floor and step out onto the balcony. Also they pipe the music for Wishes onto both balconies, so that's something else you will be able to hear from out there.

    That's the best way to look at it, because it's something to look forward to on your next vacation.

    :lmao: im not to computer savy but i think ill give it a try. we loved the contempo.the sun rise,(if we got up and out by that time) was great over bay lake. the sun set we great also!! being dvc members, im not sure when we would be staying there again, but if we stay out of our dvc resorts, thats the place we are going. while we were there, we decided not to buy into blt. we want to wait to see how that pans out. if it was rainy, you had a hard time getting into the mon.rail. the chef. mick dinner crowds tied up the elevators most nights.i hope it works out when they open blt w/ the extra people. the new parking was great, and the pool areas and the grounds realy look great. i would recomend the contemp. to anyone!

    Just got back from a 5 night stay, Room 4119, Bay Lake View. We LOVED the resort. I wanted to say thanks for all of the great CR info I received. It sure made our stay perfect.

    We loved how extremely quiet the resort was, I had expected a little noise because of the cavernous-like building but we heard nothing. The pool was excellent. Loved the movie on the beach and the incredible access to everything.

    If I can be a little nit-picky, the following things were not so great: the hairdryer, lack of counter space in the bathroom (luckily, after reading this thread, I brought the over-the-door shoe organizer and hung it over the towel "ladder"), it was difficult to rinse out the sinks (they just don't seem to drain very well) and lastly, the Electric Light Pagaent is really loud.

    As I said the last comments were being very picky. The resort was incredible and would stay there again in a heartbeat.

    You don't get access to both 12 and 14 with a "Tower Bay Lake View - Club Level", do you?

    allseas You get lounge access to whatever club level that you are staying at...

    14th floor tower club means you have access to that lounge

    12th floor atrium club means you have access to the 12th floor lounge...

    you dont get access to both lounges if you are staying club level...

    That's what I thought, the wording in his post made me wonder, though. I haven't stayed on the 12th floor since they renovated, back then there was no lounge anyways.

    I am going to change the wording around on that tip. I assumed since it's explained that the 12th and 14th floors are different categories the floor you stay on is where you can watch the fireworks from, so my mistake.
