We are planning to go to the TOTWL on a Friday night to view the fireworks which start at 9:00. For those of you who have been, what time do you usually arrive? I was thinking between 7:45-8:00 but I am not sure how many people are generally there. Thanks!

We usually arrive about 45 mins in advance on a normal night. We try to get a table by the window but i f we cant we just step outside when the fireworks start. For special events like New years or July 4, I would go up a little earlier {assuming you would be staying at BLT on July 4 or NYW wince its blocked to nly folks staying on site for those time frames }


aside from the drinks, try the chocolate caramel cake....share it with your family / friends....its a hige slice and very yummmmmy!!!!

As long as it's not a holiday weekend, that will be fine. You may get a table inside at that time, but you'll certainly get a decent viewing spot.

Not that I worry about being at the front. I tend to stand back and watch. As long as I can see Tink, I'm happy.

Location is very nice, drinks are just ok, food is disappointing. Still, getting to watch the fireworks without enduring the mass of humanity in the park is really cool.

Last family trip, we got there about 10 minutes before they started and watched from the deck outside. After the fireworks were over, the lounge cleared out and we went inside for dessert.

We were there in early March and were amazed at how crowded it was!!

Lots of families with preschool and elem aged kids, so should not have been influenced by Spring Break.

We have been going since it opened and this was as crowded as we have ever seen an hour before fireworks. Had to share the alcove with 2 families with about 6 young kids.

We ate there once and enjoyed the food. But, yeah, I'd go at 8pm for a 9pm fireworks show as long as it's not a holiday or race weekend.
