I recently traveled to Disney with my 3 young children alone (husband couldn't get off work) and we stayed at BLT. It met and exceeded all my expectations! We were in room #8040, a studio. The rooms are small, but that was never a problem. I was surprised at how much storage there was! The kitchenette had a small refrigerator,... More

Just got back from a week at Bay Lake Tower in Disneyworld. I was a little worried after reading some reviews, and can say I would go back here in a heartbeat. Let me explain first - Bay Lake tower is a DVC location (Disney Vacation Club) that Disney can also sell nightly to the public. Most of the 'negative'... More

Bay Lake Tower is our DVC home resort... More

Iam a DVC member since 2010 and Bay Lake Tower is my home resort. Although I have stayed here several times with great satisfaction I must say my last visit 31 Mar- 06 Apr was not very satisfactory as a matter of fact hardly close to it. I was in a two bedroom lock off number7404-7406. Upon check in several... More

We have stayed at a number of DVC properties and this one has it all. There are a few minor items but with pluses we can't complain. Pluses 1. You are in the heart of it all. From our balcony and living room window we looked at Magic Kingdom. Fireworks at night. Just a beautiful view for Disney people. 2.... More

This was our first Disney trip and saying we were overwhelmed by the entire planning process is an understatement! After doing my research we chose The Bay Lake Tower at the Contemporary for several reasons: proximity to Magic Kingdom, accommodations for our size party, and value. We have 3 small children so location was our major concern. To get to... More

Stayed in a 1-bedroom villa #7234 on vacation club points this visit. Our standard view was overlooking Bay Lake, the Contemporary gardens, and the Contemporary Hotel (facing south). Convenient, as it was near the elevators to the elevated walkway. Room was clean and fresh when we arrived. The couch seemed a bit damp initially, as if it had just been... More

We are avid Disney travelers visiting from Ohio several times each year staying on property in Deluxe resorts such as Animal Kingdom Villas at Kidani and Beach Club Villas. We booked a villa at Bay Lake Towers for its close proximity to Magic Kingdom (there is a path you can walk over) since we have three young sons. Though the... More

I waited to write this review until the stay was over, even though my negative experiences started from the moment of arrival. We stayed for a week Saturday to Saturday with a group celebrating an anniversary. We were supposed to have a two bed queen room attached to a king suite where the rooms connected in the living room. We... More

The only advantage to staying here is the access to the monorail via a walk to the Contemporary Resort Hotel. The room service food inedible. For breakfast we asked for wheat toast and received cold, untoasted slices of sandwich bread. Front desk is unavailable at night until 7 a.m. Don't expect the concierge to get you a taxi to make...
