I stayed two nights in a Magic Kingdom view room at the Magic Kingdom. Our room was located on the 9th floor, and had a beautiful view of the castle, Space Mountain, and Splash Mountain. If you have a room with a Magic Kingdom view, make sure you watch the fireworks from your balcony--it's a great view of the fireworks,... More

We spent another vacation at BLT in Disney. This is my favorite location even though we do more Epcot than MK. BUS: This trip our experience with the buses was less than perfect on a few occasions specifically with traveling from the Boardwalk. If you stay at BLT, the monorail is the best way to get to Epcot even with... More

We really enjoyed our stay ay Bay Lake Tower. The biggest reason we stayed is because we had six children with us and some required strollers. The suites are very large and provide plenty of room for cribs if you have younger children. The kitchens are nice and fully stocked with everything you would need. Just bring the groceries. The...

As much as I would like to say that we loved our stay at Bay Lake Contemporary, it was the opposite. There were many PROS about the hotel though: - got a text that room was ready at 2pm - monorail access to magic kingdom and epcot - buses was convenient - staff was super energetic and in good spirit...

The Bay Tower is actually a DVC self-catering apartment block connected to the Contemporary Hotel resort through a walkway (and whose lobby we had to check in via). The room we had, had a coffee machine, microwave and fridge which was really convenient especially with the Disney supermarket in the Contemporary. We actually used the coffee machine to boil the...

Our 3-br condo was the perfect location since we had little ones and centered our visit on the Magic Kingdom. A more central location would be better if the kids were 10+ With Epcot and Downtown Disney more of a lure. Service and housekeeping were very very accommodating (more coffee, extra blankets, etc). And the condo was totally outfitted. The... More

My family of 4 stayed at Bay Lake tower at Disney for a 2nd time. We stayed Nov 2013, and again Nov/Dec of 2014. This year we had a 2 bedroom villa that was awesome! We had a high floor, (13th),and a lake view that was on the north side, so it faced the lake and to our left was... More

We rented two deluxe studio rooms for my 40th bday celebration. The location is excellent and we had a fantastic view of the fireworks from our room. We had easy access to the monorail and Dining experiences. My one complaint was the size of the room. It was tiny for four people! We paid 500 a night and there was... More
