Very clean and the help was extremely helpful. Obviously not a cheap place to visit but we feel that we received alot for our money. Would highly recommend the park view upgrade if you have young children and the lake view with older children.

Similarly to the Grand Floridian it is a walking distance from the Magic Kingdom The Bay Lake facilities are excellent. Enormous swimming pool, and ample playground for the kids. The rooms are spacious... More

Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is our home away from home. This prestine location is the only resort walking distance to Magic Kingdom. We purchased Disney Vacation Club when they announced this property and have spent Christmas week here in a luxury 2 bedroom villa ever since. For a large family with 4 kids, ages 14-23, we can...

We LOVE Disney! We honeymooned in the area 20 years ago and ended up buying timeshare elsewhere at that time. A few years ago, during a stay at that other property, we took Disney up on the opportunity to sit through a presentation on what the Disney Vacation Club had to offer. We were impressed and ended up buying a... More

I've now stayed at most of the DVC WDW "park" resorts, and all the monorail resorts, and it is very obvious why BLT is so popular. Be it the "lake view" rooms that still offer a view of the castle, or the 10 minute walk to MK, you start to understand why DVC is buying back contracts to this resort... More

My family and I stayed in a Lake View Studio for 9 days. Although it did feel a little small for the four of us, the location cannot be beat. Our room was clean and we were lucky enough to have a view of the lake and Magic Kingdom. We could see the fireworks perfectly from our balcony. We would... More

We recently stayed at Bay Lake in a 2 bedroom condo with our daughter, son-in-law, and two granddaughters, who are Disney Vacation Club members. Bay Lake is the DVC property at the Contemporary Resort and is within walking distance of the Magic Kingdom and the monorail in the Contemporary. Even though it is a DVC property, they do sell rooms... More

Since being a child one of the hotels I've always wanted to stay in was the Contemporary Hotel, but I could never afford to, so when Disney built Bay Lake Towers I was beyond excited knowing that we where DVC members and could book this with our points.

Wonderful location, comfortable bed, efficient layout, great view of Bay Lake, fully supplied with all household supplies right down to the dishwasher detergent. We stayed in a two bedroom that sleep 9 that had all the sheets, pillows and blanket s for all. What an excellent stay.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom lake view ( with a perfect side view of Magic Kingdom) and loved the villa and the resort...and the smell that is piped through! The cast members were great, mouse keeping never disappointed and the convenience of location can't be beat!
