I booked this hotel because of it's location, and that was a super A+. We got to see Magic Kingdoms fireworks from the terrace with a drink and has the best views. Check in was strange since all the info we got was about the new bracelet system, no maps, no directions, no nothing. Once we actually got to our... More

We loved this hotel. This was the perfect location to the Magic Kingdom. We were able to watch Wishes every night from our hotel balcony. The monorail was so easy to take from the Contemporary. We will definitely stay there again.

Our traveling party was our little family of 3 (2.5 year old) and one set of grand parents. There are not that many options with 2-bedroom suites and we wanted everyone to have privacy while sleeping at least. I fell in love with the pics on the website. The "booth" style table is perfect for a toddler. The room was... More

As a member of the Disney Vacation Club, my home resorts in Orlando are Boardwalk and Animal Kingdom Lodge. This was my first stay at Bay Lake Tower. Magnificent ninth-floor view of Bay Lake. The studio room arrangement is great with a separate kitchenette area.The ONLY negative was no ATM machine unless I walked over to the Contemporary...an inconvenience when... More

Just returned from a 3 day 2 night trip at BLT. Got the studio for my wife, 2 year old toddler and myself. While I was initially scared we would not have any room to breath, I can assure you this is not the case. Even with the stroller in the room there was plenty of room for the 3... More

BLT was amazing. We had a two bedroom, three bath condo on the 14th floor. The views of the pool, lake, and water parade were awesome. Sunrises were beautiful. Everything about this condo was top notch. It was very clean. The halls were quiet!! We want to come back here soon!! 6 of shared this condo and we all had... More

This is easily my favorite hotel on Disney property and that's no easy competition. More contemporary than even the Contemporary itself, the theming and decor of this hotel are perfect. Everything from floor to ceiling is beautifully designed and kept immaculate. As far as rooms are concerned, they are small for DVC but the views of either the Magic Kingdom... More
