Our home time share with Disney. We can be inside the Magic Kingdom via monorail, bus, or walking within 10 minutes. Or, just hang out in the room and watch the Castle fireworks from our hotel room balcony. Very comfortable and clean. Disney touches of detail never fail to impress, right down to the security guard at the entrance saying,... More

We are DVC members and have stayed at Bay Lake Tower several times. The location is great because you can walk over to Contemporary where you can get monorail to Magic Kingdom and Epcot. If you prefer, you can walk into Magic Kingdom. To go to Animal Kingdom or Hollywood a Studios, you must take the bus. The rooms are... More

After the boardwalk we hopped to Bay lake for our Magic kingdom days. The location of the resort is great and the room was nice and clean. The room is smaller than other deluxe rooms was was functional and enough for 2 of us, but I can see how it can be crowded if you have more people. What really... More

The Bay Lake Towers are a convenient option at the Disney Hotel Properties. There is a bridge that connects Bay Lake Tower to the Contemporary Hotel (which has the monorail running through it). It's a short walk to the Magic Kingdom and on the return home, the Contemporary is the first stop on the monorail! :)

Waited 8 hours for check in. Finally had room that became available after dinner and was switched to a theme park view room! In the process after 1 day of using the dining plan they also reset our dining plan. So we got 1 day free! The hotel itself was so convenient we could refill our mugs every morning on... More

We have been members of the Disney vacation club for several years. Although, we always have an excellent stay, this visit to Bay Lake Towers was by far the best place we have ever stayed. The 2 bedroom villa had 3 bathrooms and plenty of room for all 6 of our family members. The location was perfect and the facilities... More

Let's be honest, we were a little out of shape when we landed, but our six year old walked our entire vacation without whining (and past alot of older kids in strollers i might add) i think... More

This is part of the Disney Vacation club. We stayed here one night. The problem with this resort is that everything stems from the Contemporary Resort which is connected by a sky bridge. We were moved from the Boardwalk to this resort due to occupancy after the hurricane. The resort rooms are new, clean and modern. Standard view here was... More
