Technically, this hotel / timeshare is part of the Contemporary Resort. It is situated between the main tower of the Contemporary and Space Mountain making it easily walkable to Disney's Magic Kingdom. Built in 2010, this is Disney's newest ground up hotel next to the Villas at Grand Floridian which is a couple years newer. Even though the hotel is...

We are DVC members and in October we finally made it to our home resort, the Bay Lake Tower. There were 7 of us in total, including my 3 young children (7, 5, and infant), so we stayed in a standard view, 2 bedroom on the ground level. The service we received, the room, and the easy access to the...

We were hear over valentines day, stayed 3rd floor room 7338. Loved the lake view. Was beautiful in the morning and evenings. This resort is a DVC resort and is very modern. Has classic hidden touches of Disney and Mickey mouse. Which we loved! Also has access to the Top of the Towers which is a must do if watching...

I fell in love as soon as we went through the door. I've hear the furniture is bland but who in the world ever started that rumor??!! It's amazing! The furniture is all Disney - there's Mickey and roller coasters and just 100% fun. We were lucky to stay in both a one bedroom and a two bedroom suite. They...

Having an autistic child, we took a lot of time and spent a significant amount of money to have as stress-free of a Disney vacation as was possible. We needed multiple bedrooms as well as a kitchen to prepare meals for our autistic daughter. We stayed in a two-bedroom villa with a lake view. The room was well laid out...

We have stayed here several times and will do so again soon. The rooms are typical of DVC properties and feel like they are in the middle of the range of size. The theme is, as you'd likely suspect, contemporary. However, instead of 1970 contemporaneous style, it is more consistent with the present day. The theme is very subtle, but...

We are DVC members and stay at various villas three times a year. This stay at Bay Lake was just wonderful. The room was very clean. We had an amazing view of Magic Kingdom for the fireworks. Nights were very quiet. The staff in community hall were so friendly and kind to my son who has special needs. Love the...

Well after 14hrs plane trip we turned up at the airport, very clear signs to make your way down to where the bus picks you up. We arrived at reception no one to help with bags so we wheeled them in to be greeted by a lovely helpful friendly lady. Check in was really quick we had our magic bands...

Had a great time. Disappointing no busses to Magic Kingdom. Only walking or crowded and sometimes down monorail. Rooms good, ice on two different floors. Rooms always stocked and cleaned when it's time. Plenty of pools. Roof deck very nice with bar and views. Easy access to all parks and springs. Many lake activities, but costs.

On our first stay, Bay Lake Tower immediately took its place as my family's favorite place to stay at Disney. My husband, two boys aged 2.5 & 9 months, in-laws, and I stayed in a one bedroom villa for six nights over Halloween. Everything about our stay was perfect. I don't have a single complaint about the resort or the...
