This was our second stay at the Bay Lake Tower, January 2014 and January 2015. Both times, we booked EARLY as we are not Vacation Club members. We stayed in two-bedroom suites. Decor is fun and modern. Love the bath in the main bedroom with its sliding panel door. You can relax in a bubble bath while watching the sky... More

This resort is awesome! The location is amazing, right next to magic kingdom, and the amenities were fantastic. As a DVC member I've stayed at almost every other resort Disney has to offer on the Walt Disney World Property and this is definitely one of the best I have been to. The staff was very accommodating. I want to give... More

The location of the hotel is the real selling point and the reason we would stay here again. My husband and I traveled with our 5 year old and 2 year old and the convenience of being able to walk to the Magic Kingdom made this trip so much easier for us. It was very easy to get back for... More

What a great resort! New, modern style, super clean , and close to magic kingdom! We stayed in a one bedroom villa. Terrific to have full kitchen, two full bathrooms, and the beds, including the sofa sleeper and sleep chair are very comfortable. Cast members are super nice--my son fell and sprained his ankle badly at the entrance and they... More

BLT is a beautiful and quiet hotel yet is an easy walk to the craziness of the Magic Kingdom. The service was attentive and professional. It is a very short covered walk to the Contemporary Hotel, shopping and restaurants. The monorail connecting the Contemporary to the Polynesian, Grand Floridian and Magic Kingdom is an added plus. Our room was clean... More

I have to hang my head with a sigh and say "no," we did not find BLT to be worth the asking price. My family is a part of the Disney Vacation Club (DVC) family and used points - a lot - for this visit. We decided mid-way through the trip that we would not return to BLT using cash... More

I love the location and ease of walking into the Magic Kingdom with small children. I was shocked at the filth of the room when we entered. Old wet coffee on the counter in kitchen, Hair on the blanket of the fold out bed. Old used cotton pad on bathroom sink, and hair and dust on dresser. We have stayed... More

A wonderful hotel for a family vacation or a romantic getaway, being able to walk to the Magic Kingdom, means you can break your day at the park with a swim in the hotels pools. It only takes around 7 mins each way!

My family stayed at BLT for 3 nights in May 2015 in a 1 bedroom suite, which consists of a master suite (king en suite) and a large pull out couch, along with a smaller twin sized pull out chair with a full powder bath. This was a wonderfully sized accommodation for 2 parents, 2 small kiddos (pack n play... More

We've been DVC members for about 10 years and have stayed at BLT several times and have always had great stays. We love the location, being able to walk to the Magic Kingdom is priceless when you have small children. The resort has a great pool and activities for the children. My daughters love the activity center.
