Even though we are trying to stay at a different resort every time we visit WDW, we couldn't resist booking BLT for our honeymoon after the Grand Floridian Villas fell through. This is, so far, our favorite resort on Disney property. We love the modern furnishings of the resort and the fact that it's on the monorail for easy transportation.... More

Staff was very helpful and the location can't be beat! It's great to be able to walk to the magic kingdom. We stayed in the 1 BR villa and it was more than big enough for our party of five. Great to have in room washer and dryer. Mousekeeping really only consisted of dropping off fresh towels.

We stayed in a studio and it was a bit smaller than we expected. Our stay was only for one night before leaving for a cruise, so the room size didn't pose a big problem. The kitchen area was very small. Our view was nice and we were able to sit on our balcony and enjoy the electric parade on... More

The greatest place to stay. No fear No crowds No place safer. loved the atmosphere and the convenance of being so close to magic kingdom. We did not wait for a bus a boat or the monorail. We walked to and from at our leisure and at our own pace. The Greatest vacation. Thank you Mr. Disney for creating a... More

This was our second time visiting Bay Lake Tower in the past three years. Pros: The location is excellent - if traveling with young kids there's nothing better than an 8 minute walk to the magic kingdom. Additionally, you can see the fireworks from your room in the evening, which is very helpful for young bedtimes. We had our kids... More

The only thing that Bay Lake tower has going for it is the view, IF you get Theme park view, otherwise Im not sure why anyone would stay there, the ease of the monorail? I guess if that is important to you. The rooms are like a hallway, so small we couldn't believe it! We split our trip, we did... More

Stayed at this DVC resort on a friend's points so the price was right. View - asked for lake view and while we did get it (along with a view of MK, which was nice) we were at the very edge of the lake so it seemed kind of swampy and also adjacent to the truck delivery area so we... More

I would love this hotel for the location alone! But that's not all... it has a lot of other great qualities! Bay Lake Tower is a short walk to the Contemporary and the Monorail station there. The property is sprawling and is great for walking, jogging or exploring. There is boat service to the MK and Fort Wilderness and the... More

We just returned from our 9th or 10th trip to Disney, and our first stay at Bay Lake Tower, in a 2 bedroom theme park view villa. We used to stay in regular rooms when our 3 kids were younger, but as they grow into teens, everyone prefers a little more space. Yes, a 2 bedroom villa is quite pricey,... More

What better than to be able to walk from your hotel to the Magic Kingdom! Well only to be able to watch Wishes as well from the balcony of your room or the top of the hotel! if you can, you must stay here its an experience not to be missed.
