"Our favorite hotel with small kids "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 25, 2017 NEW
Our children are 3 and 6 and you cannot beat this location with young kids. You can walk to the magic kingdom, no fighting transportation lines, when everyone is tired or needs to swim you can just leave. Plus you can watch the fireworks from the rooftop bar and again avoid the crowds. The service was top notch and our room was beautiful. My only complaint was wait times for the elevators on occasion. This hotel does not have the ambiance of other Disney properties but I like the style so it does not bother me. When our kids are older and enjoy the other parks more we will likely go back to the beach club (our favorite) on occasion but for young kids bay lake tower cannot be beat.

This is a great place to stay! Our room had a full sized refrigerator, stove and microwave. We stopped at the grocery store and picked up supplies for the week, which was very economical for our meals. WDW is a 15 minute walk across the street, and every park we went to,was less than 1/2 an hour away by rental car. The pool was warm, and had a water slide that even my 4 year old granddaughter could go on. There is room to walk around, and the Contemporary resort hotel next door is connected by a 5th floor walkway. In the Contemporary there are shops, restaurants and even a small market if you need it. We were able to watch the WDW fireworks every night from the balcony!

"Perfect stay in the middle of a hurricane"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 22, 2017 NEW
With hurricane Irma threatening East Florida, we evacuated to Orlando. Unfortunately, the hurricane chased us there. I was not expecting great service at Disney world (which closed) in the middle of a hurricane, so it was an extremely pleasant surprise to see how this Disney hotel handled guests even though they had to contend with a full house. Let me begin by describing the property. The hotel is beautiful, a stroll away from the Magic Kingdom, and connected to the Contemporary via a covered bridge. The rooms are quite spacious and the bathrooms, lovely and modern. We stayed in a very big one bedroom, with all the essential amenities for a family of four. But the lovely rooms and convenience to Disney parks aside, it was the staff that made a difference. From the moment we arrived, stressed and tired, we were surrounded by lovely staff who gave me ice cream, even though the fountain was closed, found cookies (because there was no more bread to buy), greeted me by name, and generally made a stay in such a horrific time, memorable. At two in the morning Sunday, when the hurricane was going thru Orlando, I was sitting in the lobby because I could not sleep, fretting about the wind shaking the building. I saw the employees moping the floor where the water was coming, and working tirelessly to make it seem as if there was not a hurricane coming our way and flooding half of Florida in its path. My super kudos to Disney, its management, and the management at the Bay Lake Tower hotel for every single employee I met went beyond the call of duty in such a trying time. The test of a good establishment is NOT when things are fine, but rather how they perform during difficult times. It is a testament to them that, even though I had two rooms at a four diamond property in Central Orlando for the nights of the hurricane, I left that hotel and returned to Disney because of how they had treated us the first night of the hurricane. Chapeau to you all, Disney cast members at the Bay Lake Hotel, I have seldom seen such commitment to the welfare of the guest and such yearning to make lemons out of lemonade. Hugs to you all!!!!

"Awesome Views and Stay, Great Set Up"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed September 21, 2017 NEW
We fortunately got to stay with friends who are members of the Disney Vacation Club and they were able to book us at Bay Lake with a Theme Park view for our mother/daughter weekend. Rooms were very large, clean and modern. The bedrooms and bathrooms were perfect for the four of us (two large bedrooms and three bathrooms, with a soaking tub!) Kitchen included coffee maker, so we were able to have some early in the morning. The view was wonderful, got to see space mountain and the castle. This is such an incredibly convenient place if you're visiting Disney. I would love to stay there again. Even had a washer/dryer (thankfully!) because it was terribly hot and we definitely needed to wash clothes that night!

"Another Great Disney Stay"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 19, 2017 NEW
While you don't spend much time in the hotel room (or you shouldn't!) the room was fantastic with great views of the lake! It was spacious, clean, well designed and within walking distance to Magic Kingdom. We stayed 5 nights in a two bedroom room. It had a small kitchen in case you wanted to bring food and cook, two balconies off of each bedroom and plenty of space to unpack and make the place your own for a week. Disney always does things right and the service, design and view was great.
