“Summer in Disney with Family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

I was so happy with our stay at the Bay Lake Tower. At first I thought it was expensive but in the end it was cheaper than getting 2 hotel rooms. We were 6 people with 2 bedrooms, 3 full bathromms, and a great kitchen, and family room. It was modern, clean, and VERY relaxing. Our kids ate breakfast in the room and the cleaning service made it heavenly when we came home. There is not question that I will be staying at the Bay Lake tower whenever we are in Disney. The added bonus is that you can take the monorail or WALK to the magic kingdom.

Room Tip: Call the Disney number to set up all arrangements and for info about your rooms.

My family and I stayed here from Aug. 11th-21st. This was our 2nd time staying as DVC members. From the moment you walk in the lobby smells amazing and the staff is very welcoming, helpful & patient. We had a studio room this visit and it was great for a family of 4 (2 adults, 1 school aged child & 2 y/o). If you need to use a crib or pack n play and the pullout bed you may want to stay in a 1 bedroom as you maybe cramped in the studio. The pool, community hall & activities they offer to you & your children to keep you entertained when not in the parks are terrific! When it's time to hit the parks Bay Lake Tower is just a quick walk or monorail ride to the Magic Kingdom or monorail ride to EPCOT. The reason we selected BLT as our resort is for the ease of coming and going from the Magic Kingdom when our little ones need a break but the reason we keep coming back every year since BLT opened is because of the impeccable service and the calmness this hotel brings when coming back from running around having fun in the parks.

Loved this venue. As with all of Disney Hotels we have ever been to - excellent spotless rooms, efficient friendly staff and faultless service! This comes with amazing views of the fireworks and The Magic Kingdom. Location is so central - visited the Contemporary Resort for varied meals and took the monorail to The Grand Floridian and The Polynesian for drinks/lunches.

Excellent room with a view. We faced park side and the views of the fireworks and of the park were breathtaking. Staff was very courteous and helpful. Being so close to the magic kingdom was a plus. Additionally we could walk to the contemporary and have breakfast/lunch which was very very good. Overall a great stay!

Nothing beats sitting on your deck watching the fireworks. Walking to Magic Kingdom is the quickest way there. It's about a 10 min walk. Contemporary is the first stop on the way back is take the monorail home. Top of The World Lounge is breathtaking. Love it here!

We just got back from our trip to Disney and stayed at the Bay Lake Tower in one of the one bedrooms for three nights. We're not DVC members and booked the room not knowing it was a DVC property. We stayed on the tenth floor in one of the standard view rooms and had a lovely time. My daughter loved the pool here and being able to use the main Contemporary pool as well. Being so close to Magic Kingdom was especially handy one night when there was trouble with the monorail system--we just walked back.

Stayed in every Disney premium hotel over past 30 years, except Disney's Bay Lake Towes/Contemporary Resort. Everything was just great - front desk, concierge, pool and recreation staff, bartenders, everyone was most helpful - in terms of service and location, this hotel (and the Grand Floridian) are the best on property!
