    Default 4th of July 2017

    Happy Monday!
    Has anyone heard if there going to have the DVC 4th of July party at the Contemporary this year?
    I know the Grand Floridian is but that is a different type and cost...

    The offers for DVC Independence Day parties have usually show up on the member website in late May. Hopefully we will hear something about this year's plans soon.

    We will be there over July 4th too, so I've been watching for info. In 2015 they had a DVC exclusive dessert party for $35 per adult: http://dvcnews.com/index.php/dvc-pro...ble-to-members

    I didn't post about 2016 but I think it was the same price. Not a bad price for Disney, but I'm not sure if I want to spend $140 for our family.

    Anyway, I'll be sure to post something on DVCNews homepage if an announcement is made.

    Thanks for this TimK, we are also at WDW over the 4th July and we're planning on being at Magic Kingdom that day anyway.

    Is this worth adding to our trip, as we have never done one of these before?

    Is this an opportunity to have great viewing for the fireworks or are they later in the evening?

    I guess it as also a chance to meet up!

    Just located the details here.....https://disneyvacationclub.disney.go...dessert-party/

    So next question is how good is viewing of the fireworks from this location? Never been for the 4th July before so don't want to miss them this trip!

    It will not be the same as watching the fireworks on Main Street. But it will be similar to observing fireworks from the Contemporary Resort, off to the right from Main Street and far from the castle. Keep in mind you can also see the same fireworks on July 3rd.

    The Fourth of July DVC fireworks party is actually on the Third of July. ???

    We were considering going as the 3rd is our 35th anniversary and it would be a fun way to celebrate, but decided that the view from our MK view room (woohoo - blew the points on this one!!!) will most likely be better. Have fun, all!!!

    PS - just noticed that the MK hours for the 4th went from 9a-9p to 8a-1a. Much more in line with what we were expecting ...

    Happy Anniversary! BTW, you might have a better view of the fireworks from your theme park view than at the convention center at CR.

    Thanks, Denise. Do I remember correctly that you just celebrated your 35th? If so, belated Happy Anniversary. 1982 was a good year!!!

    Yes, we're hoping that the fireworks view exceeds that of the convention center. It was just the temptation of all those sweets ...
