Watch the fireworks from the beach, snagging a hammock if possible. It’s a nice way to get a different view on the fireworks.

Try to catch the torch lighting ceremony performed in front of the Polynesian Village Resort. Check with Guest Services for times and dates.

If you have monorail fans in the family, some of the standard rooms have a great view of the monorails coming and going. Do a little bit of research ahead of time about the monorails to make it more interesting.

If you are heading to Epcot via monorail, you may want to walk over to the Transportation and Ticket Center. Depending on which longhouse you are in, it may be quicker than taking the Magic Kingdom monorail and switching monorail lines at the Transportation and Ticket Center.

Visit the Pineapple Lanai just outside the back entrance for a Dole Whip!
