As a Vacation Club Member this is one of our favorite resorts. You can't beat Disney for a resort. Always clean, customer service is the best. The location of this hotel is amazing, you can walk to the Magic Kingdom or catch a boat or monorail to the park or epcot. The rooms are amazing, bigger than most DVC resorts. Love it.

We stayed at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary for a full week while we explored Disney. I must say, this resort was an extremely convenient location, especially when traveling to Magic Kingdom. We stayed in a room with a Lake View and were able to watch Magic Kingdom's fireworks from our balcony every night in front of the castle and space mountain. It was awesome. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful (as you will find on most Disney resorts). The pool was a decent size, although quite busy most of the time. We loved being able to take the bridge right over to Disney's Contemporary resort to go to Chef Mickey's, do some shopping, use the Health Center, and hop on the monorail. Needless to say, we would certainly stay here again.

"Understated Disney at this Disney Hotel"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed June 15, 2018 NEW
For those that prefer clean lines and minimal Disneyfied rooms, this hotel is perfect. Unlike some of the other Disney properties there are only a few Disney inspired touches in the room. The room was clean, and in true Disney service fashion a minor maintenance issue was addressed immediately. A bonus is that it's only a short 6-10 minute walk to the front gate of Magic Kingdom. The lake view was beautiful but bring a clip for the drapes since the bright lights by the pool seem to be on all night.

Though many say rooms are small compared to other DVC resorts we found them well designed and roomy. Very good use of space. Fireworks great from roof or bridge. Staff very friendly and helpful. Found easy to get to all parks. Pool nice kids loved slide.

This is our second time staying here, and this time we rented a two bedroom villa with theme park view. Usually at Disney, we don't care what view we book (because you're mostly in the park), but because I was late in booking, this was all that was available. The view was amazing. To see Cinderella's Castle and watch the fireworks comfortably in the room was so much. The room itself is larger than the lake view rooms, because it's located on the outside of a curved building. The room was nice and having three washrooms with four kids was handy. The ability to walk over to some of the more popular restaurants is convenient. The pool areas are so much fun. Because you can walk to Magic kingdom, you can go back to the resort for swimming, then walk back to the park for more fun. Since we have strollers, taking the monorail is such a challenge because not only do you have security check, but you have to wait in line to take the elevator that fits one family at a time. By the time you get into the monorail, you might as well have walked to the park and saved yourself the hassle. If you want to visit the other parks, you have to take a bus and the wait is very long. We ended up taking Uber everywhere. This is the perfect place if you mainly plan to visit Magic Kingdom.
