    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    Pricey but worth it for the proximity

    The Bay Lake Tower, like any other Disney resort on the property is expensive, especially compared to the local area. However, it is worth it after noticing the traffic in the parking lots. This particular resort is closest to the Magic Kingdom (10 minute walk or can walk to adjoined resort and hop the monorail). Facilities are clean and modern. Also, at night you can catch the Magic Kingdom's firework display from the connecting bridge between the two contemporary resorts on the fourth floor.

    Disney family trip

    Excellent place to stay if you are planning on going to magic kingdom. It is at 10-15 minute walk or could take the monorail which is at a 5 minute walk. Excellent was amazing. Would highly recommend and will most definitely come back.
