    Is there a reason you can't go to the Magic Kingdom to watch them properly? Be a shame if you couldn't.

    I like watching from the beach at the Poly, it is quite romantic all cuddled up watching the fireworks. Also if you get there early enough you can see the Electrical Water Pageant, which you don't get to see from the Magic Kingdom.

    I don't think you can beat being in Main Street for the view and atmosphere, but it is very busy :yes:

    I think that both the GF and Polynesian are equally good, but please don't block the view of the diners at Narcoossee's. IMHO though the BEST place to watch, if you want to watch from a resort is the Contemporary California Grill Balcony.

    No I don't think you have made mistake. My reference to blocking the view of diners was that lots of folks amble down and stand on the patio and the folks who are dining either can't see or have to put aside their meals to go out and watch.
