Our first trip to WDW as DVC members in December 2011, our home resort is Bay Lake. Our 3 previous trips at WDW we stayed at the Beach Club; two very different resorts. We have 3 children ages 13, 10, and 7. Certainly nothing to regret at Bay Lake - the 1-bedroom villa very nice and spacious for a family of 5 - fantastic view of the Lake and Cinderella's Castle as we had a corner room on the 8th floor. We watched the MK fireworks from our balcony 4 nights; fun times. Bay Lake is very convenient and clost to MK, so a plus. Pool was very nice and a great view of the Lake. The downside to the resort is that you really do not get the DIsney look and feel, the lobby is small and kind of reminds you of a secluded condominium for adults only. This is a very nice location and resort for adults only; would not highly-recommend if you have young children as the environment is what I call "Disney Sterile". So if you are big on being surrounded by the DIsney Magic, this is not the place. Nothing negative in regards to the resort cleanliness, location, rooms, it is just not a Disney Themed resort.
