Watching Disney Enchantment Outside of the Magic Kingdom

Disney Enchantment is a magical way to end a day at the Magic Kingdom. What do you do if you want to see the fireworks, but don’t want to fight the crowd at the end of the evening? There are places where you can watch Disney Enchantment outside of the Magic Kingdom. Here are a few of our favorites.

Disney’s Contemporary Resort is possibly the most popular option. There are two main choices here. First, make a dinner reservation for California Grill. You can enjoy a delicious meal, and then watch from one of two observation decks. You’ll be 15 stories up, and the view is amazing! The soundtrack is played to enhance the experience.

If you don’t want to dine or can’t get a reservation, all is not lost. The main building at Disney’s Contemporary Resort also has an observation deck. It’s on the fourth floor. Spots here can go quickly, so you don’t want to arrive last minute.

The beach at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is also a fantastic place to sit and watch. The soundtrack will play here as well. Order a drink or a Dole Whip, and then enjoy the show.

Disney Grand Floridian Resort & Spa also has some wonderful spots. If you’d like to make it a special occasion, make a dinner reservation at Narcoossee’s and then watch the fireworks.

On a clear night, you might also be able to see the fireworks from Disney Enchantment around Crescent Lake in the EPCOT Resort Area. The fireworks will be way in the distance, but it’s still magical. If you time things right, you might be able to see both Disney Enchantment and Harmonious in one evening!

Keep in mind that you cannot park at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel unless you are staying there or have a dinner reservation. For the Magic Kingdom Resorts, park at the Transportation & Ticket Center, and then take the monorail or walk to the Resort. You can also see the fireworks from the TT&C. If you can see Cinderella Castle, you’ll be able to see the fireworks.

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH, and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married, and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010, we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the Parks. Under the name Paula Brown, I penned the novels 'Dream Wanderers' and 'The Coffee Cruiser'. I also am a co-author of 'Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide'. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida.
