Bay Lake Tower is our DVC “home” resort and we have stayed here many times. Our family loves the convenience of being able to walk back and forth to the Magic Kingdom. The views over Lake Buena Vista are always beautiful, from the sunrises each morning to the Epcot fireworks at night; and being linked to the facilities at the... More

Stayed end of August 2014. The resort was beautiful, clean and had access to wonderful restaurants at the Contemporary. Online check in did not work. Our Magic kingdom view room was not a view of the Magic kingdom but bottom of monorail and parking lot. Front desk staff was the the most ineffective group of staff I have every seen.... More

The Bay Lake Tower is located beside the Contemporary Hotel (complete with the Monorail to the Magic Kingdom and other resorts) and about 800 yards from the Magic Kingdom. As such, it's a great location to use as a base for a visit to Walt Disney World. It is walking distance to Magic Kingdom and about 30 minutes to Epcot... More

We are DVC members and were skeptical of this property due to the higher points required for staying there. Well, we finally did it and are kicking ourselves for not doing so earlier. The magic began as we drove into the property. We gave our name are the guard shack, and the were greeted by name as we drove in.... More

I've stayed at a couple of Disney Deluxe Resorts now and this is my least favorite. It was full of strollers & business people the worst possible combination of travelers. The lobby of the Contemporary was very loud. The hotel was nice. We stayed in a 1 bedroom villa to sleep 5, it was great to have the second bathroom.... More

We spent two nights at the Bay Lake towers at Disneys Contemporary resort. All I can say is amazing. We stayed at a three bedroom magic kingdom view villa on the 14th floor. I will start at the beginning to try and give you clear picture. When you are going to the hotel you go to the contemporary. From there... More

All the benefits of the Contemporary's location, but with newer rooms and your very own kitchen! Easy access to the monorail, which makes this a great location for a Magic Kingdom (MK) heavy visit. If you have the foot-power, you can even walk right to the MK front gate. The pool area was nice, with the big slide you can... More

Let me start by saying this rating is probably more of a 4.5, but a couple small issues keep me from going to a 5. I’ll touch upon those later. But first, a few of the positives. The location is ideal. A five minute walk to the Magic Kingdom, and a three minute walk to the monorail. The facility is... More

My husband and I arrived in the late morning after a cruise on Disney Dream. We were delighted to find our studio room was ready and we were able to check in. We had lunch at the Contempo Cafe at the adjacent Contemporary Hotel, and spent the afternoon relaxing at the resort poolside. In the evening, we took a boat... More

I am a DVC member and am very happy with my experiences and value of every vacation since 1997. My wife and I stayed in a 1 bedroom villa this past week. The service was exceptional Disney as always but was a bit concerned the new building was already beat up. The furniture had red stains, drink rings, the walls... More
