We stayed here in a 3 bed duplex overlooking the lake, wonderful facilities and staff, only 10 mins walk from Magic Kingdom. We made use of the early park access and enjoyed many rides before the park was too busy. Best on site accommodation ever.

While the location is good for Magic Kingdom and the monorail is accessible, the hotel is way below Disney standards. The rooms are fairly clean but the Market and dining area is unacceptable. No attention to detail such as making sure coffee urns are full,...More

If location is what you want, Bay Lake Tower is where it’s at. Just a hop, skip and jump away from the Magic Kingdom by foot, or a monorail ride if you want a little highway in the sky magic! The great thing about our...More
