We had a wonderful time and would definitely stay again! Our room was on the 16th floor with a view of the pool and lake. Our studio was small but was fine for two adults and one child. There was a queen size bed and a pull out sofa (both comfortable), a small kitchen area with a refrigerator, microwave and... More

We have stayed at Bay Lake Towers several times all with a Bay/Pool views. We love the convenience of being able to walk to the Magic Kingdom and to be able to jump on the monorail to get to EPCOT. The hotel has a more contemporary feel than other Disney hotels. It doesn't have that resort-like feeling, but it has... More

Full disclosure, I am a lifelong Disney fan and loyalist. This was our first stay at Bay Lake Towers and I was impressed. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite with a Lake view. The suite was clean, well-appointed and comfortable. My wife and I have been members of the Disney Vacation Club since 1997. We had toured Bay Lake... More

It took us almost 30 mins to check in because the person at the counter spoke poor English and was not familiar with the computer. I understand being new but don't put someone at the front counter who's first language is not english. Always a great stay here, very convenient with the monorail and being close to the magic kingdom.... More

A two bedroom villa at bay lake towers is just about as good as it gets. We stayed there before and after a cruise with Disney. For both stays we could see the magic kingdom from the room which means we sat on our balcony, listened to the music piped through the TV and watched the fireworks. WITHOUT the crowds.... More

The pool is supposed to be exclusive to BLT guests. However, the gate to the pool was always left open and our bands were never checked. So I can't see how the exclusivity is guaranteed. And yes the pool was always extremely busy to the extent you could barely move in the water. We returned to our room one day... More

My husband and I stayed here about 4 years ago and had a lovely vacation. This time, we traveled with grown children and two grandchildren, ages 2 and 7. I phoned Disney in advance to inquire about the sleeping accommodations, specifically to make sure the bedroom for our family would have 2 queen beds. I was told that could be... More

We took a family vacation the week of September 15th and stayed with DVC members at Bay Lake Towers. 4 Adults, 3 Kids, had a 3 bedroom, 3 bath, 2 story condo. The ambiance of the room was fantastic, the accommodations were comfortable and stylish. It was a very modern condo, with all the fixings you would expect at your... More

This is a standard hotel. Rooms are nice but the bathrooms are outdated. The shower heads are difficult to get used to and provide very narrow jets that have almost too much pressure. The bed is not as good as the marriott but they are very sleepable. We had a great view of the magic kingdom from our room and... More

We stayed in a two-bedroom, three bathroom condo. AMAZING! I usually loathe pullout sofa beds, but those at the Bay Lake Tower were wonderful. The third bathroom made all the difference for our party of nine. We had a view of the Cinderella's castle...worth the extra money. We were able to see Wishes from our balcony! Great pool and easy...
