I need some extra minds/eyes on this cheap-o plan of mine. My family (8) along with some extended family (4) will be spending a week in the Orlando area over the New Year’s Eve holiday. My mom was really wanting to see the NYE fireworks - but, without the price tag for our group. I know of the balcony area at the Contemporary Resort being a nice viewing location. It is also my understanding that you are allowed to park at a resort if you have dining reservations there. You may also get by just stating that you “have plans” to dine at the resort. So, we were considering driving in and grabbing dinner or dessert in the resort and then making our way to the balcony in time for fireworks. However, I cannot find any dining reservations for us in the resort. I was wondering if the Contempo Cafe would be open – could we grab a bite there to get us in? Is there somewhere else we could park and possible ride the monorail there and back? Is this a terrible plan altogether?? Pertinent input is welcome, thanks.
