lovely Disney HotelPosted Jul 23, 2015
Pros: Perfect location for Disney, walking distance to the Magic Kingdom.
Cons: Balcony easily opened by small children, no high level safety lock and frequently left unlocked by the cleaning staff. Danger for kids. Pool crowded.
Location: Perfect Disney location.
We had a great stay for 12 nights at this hotel. Perfect for Disney and the rest of Orlando. Clean, spacious accommodation. All the luxury of a hotel with the advantages of an apartment. It is easier to make the extra magic hours for Disney guests if you can all have a quick breakfast in the room and our small children survived the evening meal much better in their pyjamas in the villa than they would have in a restaurant, almost certainly asleep in their pushchairs.

Nice location, but priceyPosted Feb 14, 2015 on Hotels
I've stayed in many Disney Properties, and given the price of Bay Lake Tower, I had high expectations. While it's close to the monorail and shops/restaurants in the Contemporary, it's still quite a walk to get to everything. I did not like how the studio bathroom was set up with tub and toilet in one room, sink and mirror in another, and the toilet 'room' had a sliding but not locking door. My friends had a 2 bedroom unit, which was very small compared to how much space you get at Old Key West by comparison. I would not choose this hotel in future, but might try the Polynesian if I'm going to pay so much and want to be near the monorail.

Closest hotel to to the Magic Kingdom - walkablePosted Nov 1, 2014 on Hotels
The Bay Tower is actually a DVC self-catering apartment connected to the Contemporary Hotel resort. The room we had had a coffee machine, microwave and fridge which was really convenient. We actually used the coffee machine to boil the water for our daily brew as this being USA, they don't have electric kettles! Although there is a monorail in the Contemporary, it goes in the wrong direction and you are better off just walk over to park in 5 minutes - probably the only hotel that you can walk from to the Magic kingdom. Wifi access was excellent even in the room and with the Contemporary resort across the footbridge, easily connected to the Disne shops and restuarants. The only issue I had was with the confusion as to whether we checked in or out at the Contemporary or the Bay Towers lobby as our bags got stored there whereas we were told to collect them at the Contemporary. Also get the bus by walking from the Bay Towers lobby - dont bother going through the Contemporary lobby as we were advised.

good servicePosted Aug 7, 2014 on Hotels
We had a wonderful stay at Bay Lake Tower, it is conveniently located with access to Magic Kingdom by monorail. Love the convenient store there too where we can get food and drinks for simple breakfast.

Modern and conveniently locatedPosted May 3, 2014
Pros: proximity to Magic Kingdom modern friendly staff
Cons: Wifi - poor in guest rooms
Location: excellent location, within walking distance to Magic Kingdom. Good restaurants/bars in neighbouring Contemporary Resort (2 mins walk).
Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The location is perfect for visits to the Magic Kingdom, which can be reached on foot (5-10 mins walk). The Monorail stops in the neighbouring Contemporary Hotel, which can be used to visit Epcot, or other Hotels (e.g. dining), as well as the Magic Kingdom. The pool area is nice (great slide), but relatively small, and thus can get very busy during afternoons. Wifi mainly worked at night, we frequently had difficulty connecting during busier times. There is a good choice of restaurants, bars, as well as a few shops in the adjacent Contemporary hotel, which can be reached via footbridge. We were disappointed that the top floor (views to Magic Kingdom) was only accessible by Disney Vacation Club members. However, the California Grill restaurant in the Contemporary offers such access to all dining guests.

Lovely hotel with incredible servicePosted Feb 25, 2014 on Hotels
I am not a die hard Disney fan but this hotel was exceptionally nice. We had a one bedroom suite for our family of 5 and it was great. The room was a great size with plenty of space for everything. There were even two pullouts (a couch and chair) so my two restless children didn't keep each other awake. My only minor complaint is that the lighting in the bathroom wasn't very good but otherwise they thought of everything. Every staff member we met was beyond pleasant and helpful. It was a great experience.
