Excellent room with a view. We faced park side and the views of the fireworks and of the park were breathtaking. Staff was very courteous and helpful. Being so close to the magic kingdom was a plus. Additionally we could walk to the contemporary and have breakfast/lunch which was very very good. Overall a great stay!

We just got back from our trip to Disney and stayed at the Bay Lake Tower in one of the one bedrooms for three nights. We're not DVC members and booked the room not knowing it was a DVC property. We stayed on the tenth floor in one of the standard view rooms and had a lovely time. My daughter... More

Stayed in every Disney premium hotel over past 30 years, except Disney's Bay Lake Towes/Contemporary Resort. Everything was just great - front desk, concierge, pool and recreation staff, bartenders, everyone was most helpful - in terms of service and location, this hotel (and the Grand Floridian) are the best on property!

A little disappointed in that rooms look worn a bit. Handle on freezer was falling off. Shower handle fell off just turning on. But can't beat location, we are DVC members and have stayed at all the resorts an this is one of our favorites. But for being so new looks like it could use a little updating or tlc

We always stay on property in DVC rooms specifically. Bay Lake Tower was an absolute dream. We paid extra for a park view room and it was well worth it. Close proximity to the monorail and Magic Kingdom cannot be beat. As in all of our visits to Disney resorts, the place was clean and well maintained. The rooms are... More

Let me start by saying that we are DVC members and love staying in Disney. We have stayed at Bay Lake a few times previously and always loved it......which makes what follows really sad. To start with the positives; 1) Location. Location, Location. Can't be beat, watching wishes from your balcony and being able to walk to the Magic Kingdom.... More

The service and friendliness at resort is amongst the best at the Disney properties. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. Location is the best of all resorts for the Magic Kingdom. The parks are always kept very clean as well. Here are my concerns: 1) The magic bands are very convenient, but they still have a few bugs... More

We just stayed in the Bay Lake Towers in the two bedroom, three bath. We paid $900 a night this hotel doesn't compare to any other hotel that we have stayed within the Disney hotels. The room looks worn and dated. The carpet needs to be replaced. We ordered room service one night for our family of five, after we... More

Great place to stay. Had a 1 bedroom condo with full kitchen and hide a bed. Worked great for our 2 grandsons and us. We would stay here again. Is next to Contemporary with Tram stop within and this building is actually between the Contemporary Resort and Magic Kingdom. Was able to see fireworks at night.

We stayed in the studio and it was very comfortable. The service was excellent and we enjoyed dinning at the nearby contemporary. It was incredibly convenient to the Magic Kingdom and my family enjoyed the fire works up at the top floor lounge.
