We stayed two nights at BLT in February 2015. After a long Magic Express bus ride from the airport (over an hour), we were dropped off at the Contemporary Resort to check in. We were the last resort to be dropped off (on our bus were guests for the Grand Floridian, Polynesian, and Wilderness Lodge.) We were met by cast... More

First, it's Disney property, and Disney doesn't mess around when it comes to service. The Bay Lake Tower is no exception. It is beautiful, has great views, and is very convenient. I have stayed here twice, and Disney Magic was made for my family on our first night when we all laid in bed together and watched the fireworks over... More

We stayed at Bay Lake Feb 7-14, family of four - 2 adults, 2 boys (14, 8). We booked a one bedroom villa, it was amazing. We had 2 bathrooms, kitchen area, laundry and a great balcony. We chose this location so that we would be close to the monorail and it was perfect. Easy walk to the magic kingdom... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite at the Bay Lake Tower pf the Contemporary Resort on Half Marathon weekend. Our room faced Magic Kingdom and we were able to see the fireworks beautifully. The proximity to Magic Kingdom (certainly a nice walk) and the monorail (a walk over the connecting bridge to the Contemporary), makes this easily one of... More

We stayed for the Disney Princess this weekend. The location COULD NOT be better if you are going to go to the parks. However, the main bed was incredibly hard. The pull out couch wasn't bad but there was barely room to pull it out. We had to move our table out onto the patio. the kitchenette is really nice... More

Still our favorite hotel on property. Can not beat the convenience of walking to the Magic Kingdom. Love the views of the fireworks each night. Walk over to the Contemporary and it has everything you need. Modern and clean. Love it here

Let me start out by saying that WE love Bay Lake. We've stayed in a two bedroom suites and most recently in a Grand Villa. However, I am going to try to provide an honest review and mention some of the things that others might not love about this resort as well. If you only want to read the beginning... More

It's all about where it is... It's lovely to stay there as all hotels on the monorail are awesome. It's still a little walk to everything, but you can't complain. The bathrooms for the studios are not as awesome as the GF if that matters to you, and the view for the castle is way more. For those who want... More

We used our DVC points for this room but probably would try another DVC property like Grand Floridian or ??? next time. The location is great here bcuz you can take the monorail to Magic Kingdom but It also goes to GF & Polynesian. Anyway, we stayed in a lake view studio and could see the fireworks from our balcony...

We stayed at Bay Lakes Tower in early January 2015 for two nights. The location was the best part of the hotel, we watched the Magic Kingdom fireworks from our hotel room & balcony. Other than that, the rooms were ok, nicely appointed but we didn't have a "wow" factor at all during our stay. The hotel was somewhat clean,... More
