This review stands as part review, part clarification as deemed necessary by all the reviews out here I'm reading that don't seem to grasp the concept of DVC. Bay Lake Tower is a Disney Vacation Club resort. This means it is a vacation unit, which much like most homes is without daily housekeeping service, however comes with the amenities to... More

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this hotel! We started with a small hiccup - our air conditioning did not work in our room when we arrived. The front desk quickly gave us a different room. We would spend the morning in the theme parks and then come back to the pool to swim and have snacks. The pool... More

Our family of five really likes some extra space and for the second time, Bay Lake Tower splendidly delivered. Lots of room in our two-bedroom villa with an incredible view of the lake. We watched the Magic Kingdom fireworks several nights from the walkway, and saw the water show almost nightly from our balcony or the grounds. The Community Hall... More

Talk about having the "world"- Walt Disney World- at your finger tips!!! The theme-park view room was spectacular! From the sleek modern decor to the breath-taking fireworks from your own balcony you could not ask for a more magical experience. You can tune the TV to capture the music & story behind the fireworks show. Room service was excellent! Overall... More

This is our third stay at Bay Lake Tower. We are DVC members and just love Bay Lake Tower. For our eight night stay, we stayed at three different resorts. We love jumping around to different resorts - trying different pools, restaurants, and being close to different parts of Disney. We decided to end our trip with the last three... More

We stayed with our two children (5 and 6) in a 1 bedroom lake view on the 6th floor. It was a perfect fit for us, the kids slept well on the pull out Sofa and the pull out chair and my husband and I comfortably on the king size bed. Two bathrooms was nice, the lake view was fine... More

First, we are DVC members and have spent time at several properties, we love Disney properties. The service here is typical Disney service, 5 star all the way. Here are the pros and cons of the property as compared to some of the other Disney properties Slow, terrible Internet service, feels like a "second priority" for Disney, an upgraded Contemporary,...

If you're planning on going to the MK, you can't beat BLT's location. We were able to walk back and forth for a mid-day nap time in about ten minutes. Awesome! Especially if you have wee, little ones.

This is our home resort but always a pleasure staying there. It's close enough to walk to Magic Kingdom. Buses run about every 15-20 mins. We always get a 2 BR villa. It sleeps nine and has 3 full bathrooms. That's always great to have when you have 5 or more in the party.

Everything was great about our stay. Three places to bathe/shower at the same time. An amazing view of the fireworks at MK and the music streamed from our tv. It's a ten minute walk to Magic Kingdom or you can ride the monorail in a 25 minute circle to get there. The hotel is the first stop on the monorail... More
