We had a wonderful stay here with our two children. The location is ideal if you're spending time at the Magic Kingdom as the monorail stops here, or you can walk as it is in walking distance. The hotel is maintained very well. Our room was clean and the pull out couch was made up for our children to sleep... More

This is one of my favorite hotels. The location is wonderful. You can walk or take a monorail to Magic Kingdom. And you can take a monorail to Epcot. We like to avoid taking the bus as much as possible, since we travel with a stroller. The rooms are a very nice size and the beds are confortable. We always... More

Stayed in a 1 bedroom lake view this past week. Was only visiting the MK with my 4 year old so this was the best place to stay in my opinion. The 10-15 minute walk at the end of the night can't be beat. And the beds were super comfortable. So why 3 stars? First when we checked in there... More

Very nice place to stay. Close the Magic Kingdom and all transportation to the various parks. This hotel is semi private as it is meant for vacation club members. We stayed here through a package deal we purchased on the Disney website. This hotel uses the Contemporary Hotel for check in, concierge, bell services, restaurants and bars, transportation, etc. so... More

We just bought into DVC and went for best value in Rosales. Never having stayed at BLT we just went for a relaxing week and very happy. Loved the layout of the 1 bedroom and the convenience to all the parks. Walking to MK first thing in the morning with coffee is wonderful.

Great location. We opted to walk to the Magic Kingdom, because it's quicker than taking the monorail. The toilet and sink are in the same room as the shower, which is inconvenient. Other resorts have them separated. Be careful of the shower head. If you have it on full blast, it actually hurts. Some people may enjoy the massage, but... More

We returned from a stay at Disney's Bay Lake Tower during the last week of January. Our room was a 2 bedroom dedicated villa, room 7144 (vs a lock off in which they give you a side by side 1 bed villa and a studio to create a 2 bedroom villa). It was a standard view category that looked out... More

There's also a washer and dryer in the room You could walk to Disney from the hotel or go into the contemporary and take the monorail over.... More

One of the best resorts in Walt Disney World... We stay at Bay Lake about once a year and every time has been special... The location is second to none... If you want the best location to watch Magic Kingdom's Wishes (fireworks), look no further...

Bay Lake Tower is part of the Contemporary and is iconically located next to the Magic Kingdom. What I love about it is you can Either walk or take the monorail to the Magic Kingdom. The park view is probably the best because you can look out and see the MK and cinderella's castle and space mountain and also the... More
