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...

Top of the World bar and restaurant great place to relax grab a snack and see the fire works. Mike Sasse is the best bartender on Disney property (we have been to most of them in the last 30 years). He is helpful, friendly and very good at his job. He always make you feel like family. Definitely a go...

This is the best accommodation for a group from which to base a visit to the Magic Kingdom at Disneyworld. Rooms can handle as many a dozen. We have visited twice and enjoyed the two and three bedroom suites. One can enjoy Full kitchens, multiple bathrooms, washer/dryer, balconies from which to watch nightly fireworks, all of the extras that are...

We had an absolute wonderful time in a 1BR - family of 4. Location is amazing - pool is fun. Staff has been friendly. We got a room near the bridge to Contemporary on the 5th floor which was really convenient. The Wave is wonderful. Didn't try the QS place.. California Grill was okay - but honestly think the food...

We had a 4-night getaway in a Studio at Bay Lake Tower. A wonderful trip in a sleek facility. The location is hard to beat if you are visiting Walt Disney World. It has a walking path to the Magic Kingdom, which is a big plus. The rooms are fresh and well appointed. Our studio had a mid-size refrigerator (but...
