We chose this hotel based on it's proximity to the Magic Kingdom since our travel party included a toddler. We stayed on rented points (we're now vacation club members however) and I don't know if we would have paid full rack rate for the room as the resort is pretty standard decor and luxury-wise, but we were quite pleased with...

A family vacation with grandchildren ,parents , aunt etc I reserved the 2 bedroom villa and was assigned to a designated 2 bedroom on the 15 floor lake view. The villa was spacious . Large living room area with the full kitchen and the 2 bedrooms. Mentioned it as a designated villa not a lock off. The rooms are impeccable... More

If you can afford this place, go for it. The units are gorgeous, the staff is attentive, and the location is unparalleled if your object is to be close to the Magic Kingdom. It's within walking distance, although you can take the monorail from the adjacent Contemporary Hotel. You will either have a view of the park from your room,... More

We have stayed at this resort twice now and are very much looking forward to our summer vacation here. It stands out among other resorts in terms of the very contemporary design and features. It is beautiful inside and out. Even the smallest studio rooms are spacious enough for two. It proximity to the Contemporary makes it very convenient to... More

We just left Bay Lake Tower and absolutely loved the hotel! We had a 1-bedroom condo facing the lake. It was so peaceful and quiet sitting on the balcony and we have a clear view of the fireworks every night. The room was clean and extremely spacious. The pool was perfect for the kids and there was a nice bar/place... More

Of course Disney does it right with such attention to detail. We love the Contemporary for the views (Magic Kingdom or lake view). You can even walk to the Magic Kingdom! We had a one bedroom suite and an adjoining studio. Huge living room full kitchen with a large table. Two balconies, we chose lake view this year but park... More

We took our three grandchildren and their parents to Disney World and stayed at the Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort. It was a perfect place to stay with a family. We choose the two bedroom suite. We had two separate bedrooms and a living area with a comfortable pull out sofa. This gave us plenty of room. The... More

This Hotel Surprised the heck outta me! It is walking distance to the Magic Kingdom and steps away from the monorail to any of the other disney resorts. We had the 3 bedroom condo and it had 4 balconies for great viewing of the Magic Kingdom fireworks display. The rooms were very modern and clean with a full kitchen and... More

The rooms and the views from this place are excellent. The service is also impeccable. The lounge on the 16th floor is also very cool, and a great place to watch the fireworks. Any DVC member staying at any resort can watch them from there, except the 3rd and 4th of July and Dec 30 and 31. One good thing... More
