    I hope the fireworks will be better next year after the renovations are complete! We enjoyed seeing the Ritz fireworks (Better but much more short) from our villa. The Omni fireworks were slow and quite anti-climactic.. the fireworks 2 weeks ago for some group were much better…

    • Amy Lacroix says:

      Thanks for the feedback Mark, we’ll be sure to share with our staff. Hope you enjoyed all the July 4th activities and can join us tonight’s Shrimp Boil & Polynesian Dancers from 5 – 8 p.m. or Boardwalk Bash tomorrow in The Shops.

      I agree. The fireworks show several weeks ago was spectacular. I also was not impressed on the Fourth.
