As many experienced Disney vacationers already know, planning and prioritizing are essential practices before enjoying a successful Disney experience. If convenience and luxury are at the top of your list, these top 5 reasons to stay at Bay Lake Tower are sure to make your research process a whole lot easier.

#5 Convenient Location


For those planning to visit Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Bay Lake Tower is by far the most conveniently located resort. It takes only minutes to walk the short distance from your room to Magic Kingdom which is a great advantage if you like to arrive at the park early. However, trekking to the park on foot is not your only option. Glide to Disney parks in minutes on the monorail that pulls right in to the Contemporary’s Grand Canyon Concourse, or take a short scenic boat ride.

For travelers who arrive at the resort by driving their own vehicle or a rental, parking is complimentary for Disney Resort hotel Guests with a valid Key to the World Card or Resort Parking Permit. 


#4 White Sand Beach

You’ll feel like you have escaped to the islands as you relax and catch some rays on the waterfront at Bay Lake Tower. Watch adventurous vacationers parasail, waterski, and sail across the lake or take part in the fun by heading over to the nearby marina.


#3 Character Dining


Head next door to the Contemporary for a breakfast or dinner buffet with Mickey and his friends at Chef Mickey’s restaurant. Meet Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Goofy, and Donald as you dine on classic American cuisine done Disney-style. Kids will love the chance to meet their favorite characters without standing in line, and parents will rejoice at the unique photo opportunities.


#2 Breathtaking Views

The unique horseshoe design of the resort ensures that each room serves as a unique vantage point. Guests can enjoy exclusive views of Cinderella’s Castle, Bay Lake and the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. Top of the World Lounge, located on the 16th floor, offers the ultimate panoramic view. The lounge is particularly popular during the Magic Kingdom fireworks, so arriving as early as possible will give you the best chance of gaining admission before it reaches capacity.


#1 DVC Villas

The pinnacle of modern grandeur, the fully-furnished villas easily secure the title as the top reason to stay at Bay Lake Tower. Ultra-modern design and the typical Disney extravagance are combined in these rooms to create a luxury experience.


This 2-bedroom villa sleeps up to 9 adult guests in a king-size bed, 2   queen-size beds, a double-size sleeper sofa, and a sleeper chair. The full kitchen includes modern appliances and sleek granite countertops that are sure to impress. This villa also includes 3 full bathrooms, including a master bath with a whirlpool tub for relaxing after a busy day at the parks. These luxurious villas are the #1 reason why Bay Lake Tower is considered one of the most prestigious Disney resorts.


Convenience, a white sand beach, dining with Disney characters, spectacular views, lavish villas… what more could a Disney vacationer ask for? A stay at Bay Lake Tower is a unique vacation experience that will elevate your next Disney trip to new heights.
