So very lucky to have a room on the 16th floor, with easy (and constant) access to the roof viewing areas, which provide awesome views across the park and an incredible way to enjoy the nightly firework displays in the Magic Kingdom. We are in a two bedroom apartment, utilising the (very comfortable) lounge sofabed for the fifth member of...

We have stayed at this facility previously and also at the Contemporary Club Level on other stays at WDW. I couldn't believe the small size of the "Deluxe Studio", This was our eighth stay on the Monorail Resorts Hotels and we may have been somewhat misled by the reservations person as to what to expect on arrival. We will think...

We stayed at Bay Lake Tower the first week of December. Our room faced the Magic Kingdom and we were able to enjoy the fireworks from our balcony which was spectacular. The hotel is a short walk to the Magic Kingdom or a monorail ride from the Contemporary which is attached by a bridge on the 5th floor. Our room...

This is our 10th trip to Disney and our 4th time staying at the Bay Lake Tower. We had a 2 floor, 3 bedroom suite. The room was lovely but there were frequent problems - the phones would routinely stop working and we were without running water for several hours one morning. My daughter became ill while we were there...

Bay lake tower is without question the prime location in Disney. You can walk into Magic Kingdom and take Monorail to Epcot and other delux hotels in the circle. This perk cannot be matched anywhere else on property and it really is incredibly luxurious and convenient not to struggle with crowds and busses at the end of a long day...

We just stayed at Bay Lake Towers in a 1 bedroom lake view suite. We love staying here because it is the most spacious rooms for a family of 5. It has 2 bathrooms, a washer & dryer, full kitchen and walking distance to the Magic Kingdom. The only reason why we didn't give it 5 stars was they stated...

Seven of us recently stayed at Disney's Bay Lake Tower Villas and thoroughly enjoyed the 2-bedroom villa we reserved as part of our Disney Vacation Club (DVC) membership. Having a full kitchen allowed us to enjoy home cooked meals rather than always eating at restaurants. Even though it was extremely busy (between New Year's Day and the Walt Disney World...

Bay Lake Towers is a very nice hotel but nothing really special. The rooms are beautiful and the hotel is very clean but it is in my opinion not up to par with other Disney resorts I had read a previous review where someone stated they were never notified when the room was ready and thought to myself, that cant...

Stayed at the Disney Vacation Club Bay Lake Towers last week in a Deluxe Studio with a beautiful lake view from the 9th floor. We paid for a lake view but the first room we were assigned had no lake view unless you leaned over the balcony and looked severely to the left. We complained are were reassigned the significantly...

If you like to stay on-property, but get tired of drowning in Mickey and friends at every turn, this could be the place for you. The decor is understated compared to Disney's other properties. To us, this was a good thing! Our group of 8 (two families) fit well in a two bedroom, though two individuals had to sleep on...
