As DVC members we were excited to finally reserve into Bay Lake Tower. This trip was in celebration of our daughter's cancer remission and to be booked into the Contemporary resort where we first took her 42 years ago was even more special. Arrival was great as we were greeted by name at the front. I had done everything on... More

We've been to Disney World several times in the past, but this was our first time staying on site. My wife & I took our 6 yr old son, 3 yr old daughter and my wife's parents (60s) and brother (30s). We chose Bay Lake for the condo style and the fact that we had enough room for all of... More

We are DVC members who have visited WDW twice a year since 1994. This post New Year trip (Jan 4-8 2015) we thought we would try bay Lake Tower. Upon arrival at 4:30 pm there was no room ready and the computer could not let us check in due to a problem with the new "bracelet" not attaching to our... More

Bay Lake Towers A welcoming experience. We stayed at Bay Lake Towers from December 1 -8, 2014. This was our third visit as we are DVC members and I have to say the most relaxing. We arrived at 5 p.m. via a private van, bell services was curbside to assist us with our groceries and luggage. We walked into the... More

We had a large Family Easter week vacation at a three bedroom, four bath Villa with a full kitchen on the 15th floor at the Bay Lake Towers that was just fantastic. We had a perfect view of the fireworks at night from our balconies. It was our fifth stay in the park and by far the best. The resort... More

We stayed at Bay Lake Tower with our two children, ages 10 and 8, from April 4 to April 11. There are pros and cons to Bay Lake Tower. Here's what I liked about it: it's quiet and more peaceful than any of the other Deluxe hotels. The view (lake side) was really nice and you could see fireworks from... More

Wonderful location. Modern rooms in time share, some with exceptional views. Fireworks from certain park view rooms is quite special (especially when tv is used for synchronized audio with fireworks). Easily walkable to the Magic Kingdom.

As DVC members we have stayed at a lot of different properties. This one is truly unique in that it is a more intimate upscale environment. There is no theme at this hotel and at first you feel like you miss that. However for us that ended after about the first 30 minutes. It was nice to leave the parks... More

Bay Lake Tower was new when we bought into DVC, and we chose this property for its nearness to inter-park transportation, and ease of navigating with a wheelchair. The rooms are smaller than Old Key West (the first DVC resort), but we weren't in our 2-bedroom unit all that much. The huge tub in the master bath is great for... More

The Bay Lake towers Lake view was beautiful and the 1br, 2 full bath room was clean and very spacious for a family of 4. Tasteful decor with minimal disney cartoon on the walls. Nothing more peaceful than enjoying an ice cold beer from the full kitchen (p/u groceries at whole foods before we arrived) and sipping it on the... More
