Family of 6 stayed at Bay lake tower at Disney's Contemporary hotel. We only stayed here as we were supposed to stay at Disney's wilderness lodge but found out only a month before our visit that it was under construction. Not happy with Disney for not telling us about this construction when we made our initial reservation. Anyway, had to...

This is our first stay at BLT and it won't be last. We arrived around noon and a room was available on the third floor with a view of the treetops and the pool. We took it as we were ready to go exploring. Our room was perfect for the two of us. The kitchenette was perfect as we unpacked...

We have stayed here many times and it is one of two places that you want to stay. The location is perfect as you can walk to the Magic Kingdom or take the monorail from the Contemporary Hotel that is attached to the Bay Lake Towers. The views are to die for looking at the castle where you can view...

We just returned from our 1st Disney "Light" Trip. We stayed at the Bay Lake for 3 nights and did 2 days of parks (Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom). I was very pleasantly surprised with our room - the 1 Bedroom Villa Suite. This room has a separate master bedroom with a king bed and then a living room with...

We stayed at Bay Lake Tower in the Magic Kingdom. Our view was priceless. The room was clean and well stocked with supplies. You c walk to the Magic Kingdom or the Contemporary Hotel. The pool was perfect. Bay Lake was much nicer than the Polynesian.

First stay at BLT and I really liked it. You do have to walk a bit more to go to dining because it is in the Contemporary Resort but it wasn't that bad. We had a studio with the lake view. It was a nice room, kind of small but it has a mini kitchen with microwave, mini fridge, sink...

I recently spent six nights at Bay Lake Tower. It was my third stay at the resort, and I really enjoyed my stay. I had a standard studio on the third floor. My room overlooked the courtyard on the inner side of the circle and the pool. The room was very quite--I heard a little noise from the courtyard when...

A 10 minute walk to the Magic Kingdom, but if theme parks aren't your thing this is still a wonderful resort. The rooms are spacious. We chose a studio for 2 adults. King size bed with pull-out sofa, 2 chairs a small round table. There is a kitchenette with mini fridge, microwave, plates, glasses, silverware, coffeemaker and plenty of storage....

I booked Bay Lake Tower after reading reviews, and chose a one bedroom room with lagoon view. The hotel itself is quite nice, friendly people, very very quiet especially compared to the Contemporary Resort. The one bedroom was quite nice, very basic but spacious, with a sofa-to-bed convertible, a bedroom, two bathrooms, a washer-dryer and kitchen. There were TVs in...

We moved over here after staying at the Grand Floridian Villas. It was a big difference in size and service ( a big step down). This was also a two bedroom unit but seemed very tight compared to the GF. Overall the location and walking distance to the Magic Kingdom was nice to have. BTW there are no buses from...
