We just completed a 4 day stay with friends in a two bedroom villa at Bay Lake Towers, at Walt Disney World. We were on the 10th floor with a beautiful Theme Park View where we enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching the Magic Kingdom Wishes fireworks each night. After a day in the park it is so enjoyable... More

Stayed at the BLT over March break in 2015. Was totally impressed with the room as I was not expecting it to be so big. We had a one bedroom villa with two adults and three young boys (6, 5 and 1). The room was big enough that we kept the pull out couch open all week and there was... More

This is the best DVC resort in the world hands down. The one bedroom can easily fit two parents and two teenage men. Guests at Bay Lake Tower can do both Bay Lake Tower activities, and contemporary activities. It is a quick walk to the monorail and magic kingdom. There is a boat to Fort Wilderness Campground, and Wilderness Lodge.... More

We stayed at BLT in 2013 studio which was compact and had toilet issues. The room felt like it needed refurbishing. Last year 2014 we stayed in a one bedroom and the size was great yet once again we had toilet issues. Somethings not right with the plumbing there. Also the bedroom balcony door would not close. The rooms here... More

The room was clean. We had a great view of Bay Lake. The Magic Kingdom was a quick 10 minute walk away. The Monorail was a 5 minute walk away. If you are a DVC Member try and catch the fireworks from the lounge.

We stayed in a 1-BR villa at Bay Lake for a few days of our spring break this year. We are DVC members and have stayed here once before. We enjoyed riding the monorail to Epcot and walking back from Magic Kingdom. It is a short walk to the Contemporary (connected via a walkway) and there are several dining options... More

The rooms are very nicely done, and include every amenity you can think of. Though, there is only an iPod dock in the bedrooms, not the living room if you have a separate living room, and they don't have 8-pin adapters, but that's a quibble. Views are tremendous in all directions, even if you have a "standard" view. If you're... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite on the 14 floor. We had a view of the pool and lake. The suite was very large with a nice kitchen and a laundry room. The hotel is conveniently located and is within a 10 minute walk to Magic Kingdom. It also is within easy access to the Monorail at the Contemporary... More
