    Has anyone ever tried watching the magic kingdom fireworks from the polynesian beach or perhaps the grand floridian? Which is the best one and do they pipe in the music?

    You do get a reasonable view of the fireworks from both the Poly or the GF, although I personally have never viewed them from the Poly.
    On the other hand I have seen them loads of times at the GF when we have stayed there.
    You get the closest view from the boat deck near to Narcoossee`s although beware of the mosquitos in that area!
    Many folks tend to congregate at the end of the marina near to Gasparilla`s, where you also get a good view of the fireworks.
    Music is not piped intpo the resort, however it does get piped into Narcoosee`s restaurant if you are having dinner there.

    The Beach at the Poly is a nice place to view them from, too. :yes: No music though, but LOADS of mosquitos! :eek:

    Be sure to have an insect repellent with DEET to ward them off. (They are truly vicious little ******s)!

    At the Contemporary Resort there is an observation deck that has music pumped in ( no bugs). Also if you have reservations at the California Girll they also have a viewing deck with pumped in music. The reataurant is great at getting your courses to you based on that so you can leave your table and enjoy.
