ORDDU: Don't waste your money on this farse!!! What most guests fail to realize is that there is VERY limited viewing for this event. There is a roof that covers most of the terrace and it will block your view of the fireworks. Only if you are one of the lucky few to get a spot next to the railings will your view be unobstructed. My sisters and I think this is such a slap in the face to unsuspecting guests who don't stop to consider how limited the viewing is for this. It only works for those who know where to stand for the fireworks and who also get there early enough to secure a decent place to view. Too many other guests are left disappointed as they realize--too late--that this is a royal rip off by Disney management in it's never-ending quest to be greedy!!

I get that the climate in Florida is horrible and they have to have coverings over every patio and dining area. But why would you try to set up fireworks viewing at a covered terrace where everyone would need to crush against the railings to get a view of the sky?

Seems like a very bad idea, and as we can see here leads to some unhappy customers.

Another poorly planned money grab on Disney's part, apparently.

ORDDU: Agreed. What some guests end up paying for is mostly an over-priced dessert that isn't even that good. Guests need to become more aware of how they're being scammed at the Disney parks. Having said that, we still enjoy the Disney theme parks or we wouldn't be going back. It's just a matter of being educated on what's worth paying for and what isn't.

Did you even read the article? Seems that Melissa had a terrific time, and didn't have the slightest problem with getting a great view of the fireworks.

Hi Dan! Hi Witches!
Good to hear from you both or all 4 of you...
I read the whole article and have watched the fireworks before it became a pay for location...So in my opinion Melissa and the Witched are both correct... and she does "imply" the need to be aggressive to position for prime viewing. Mellissa just sugarcoats it since it is mentioned as part of her employment at AllEArs Travel. The Witched don't have to sugarcoat anything for us to get the message.

ORDDU: Thank you, MickeyMouseClub, duckling, for your support. Aside from that, we've experienced this event ourselves and know firsthand how limited the viewing can be. So do all the guests who were with us.

ORGOCH: Yeah, somebody just wants to bait us inta another argument but it ain't a workin'!

No baiting at all - I simply disagree with you. Is that not allowed?
