Default OKW Grand Villa advice please

Hi guys! I was fortunate enough to snag a GrandVilla for my family Mid Nov for a few days. This is our first time in the GV and we are obviously super exited for it! Question- Do any of the Villas have views of the fireworks? I read somewhere, and of course now I can't find it, that some of them do. All words of wisdom welcome please!

Fireworks? I doubt it. Only the resorts that have higher floors overlooking Epcot or MK resort area rooms looking over Bay Lake can see fireworks.

From my experience staying at Old Key West (particularly swimming at the Turtle Pond pool at night) - you can definitely hear the fireworks going off at Epcot at night if you are outside. You don't have much of a view through the trees, but you can occasionally catch some of the very high fireworks in the air. I don't think that really compares to the rooms with a "fireworks view."

Enjoy your stay!

Never saw any fireworks from Old Key West in many, many stays there. Sorry.

You can hear them, but I've never seen anything more than brightness or a hint from any room. I've seen people say they've seen really high ones but that's it. I personally have not.
