Thanks for being one of the trusted frog family reviewers.
Guests like you make vacations better!

What we love

  • Spectacular views of Magic Kingdom® Park, Bay Lake and the Seven Seas Lagoon
  • One of the most convenient villas on property with some of the newest, nicest rooms
  • Sleek, minimalist design and vibrant Disney-themed art
  • Walking path to Magic Kingdom® Park, the quickest way to get there (10-minute walk); monorail access to Epcot® via the Sky Way Bridge
  • Great shopping in the 4th floor Tower stores at the main resort hotel
  • Character dining with Mickey and the gang at Chef Mickey's
  • Multiple table-service dining options, including one of the best restaurants on property at California Grill
  • Watching the fireworks from park view rooms and the observation deck at California Grill
  • On-site tennis and volleyball courts

Keep in Mind

  • Minimalist theming doesn't feel very "Disneyish" (aside from artwork)
  • Among the most expensive Deluxe Resort Villas on property
  • Theme Park View includes the parking lot
  • Pool doesn't have a discernible theme, other than modern
  • Deluxe studios only sleep 4 plus an infant in a crib; some of the other deluxe villas sleep 5
  • No children's activity center on-site; parents can drop off the tadpoles at the nearby Lilo's Playhouse at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort for a night out

Notable Facts

  • The Top of the World Lounge on the 16th floor is exclusive to Disney Vacation Club members staying at Bay Lake
  • Bay Lake Tower was the last work of architect Charles Gwathmey
  • The award-winning California Grill underwent an extensive refurbishment in 2013, adding a sleek design and lighting, onstage kitchen, sushi bar and more than 250 wine selections

Frog Family Tips

  • For the shortest transport time, walk to Magic Kingdom® Park, but take the monorail back to the hotel
  • For transport to Epcot®, take the Monorail to Transportation and Ticket Center and then transfer to the Epcot® line
  • Consider upgrading to a Theme Park View; request a higher floor for a better view of Wishes Nighttime Spectacular
  • If you're watching Wishes Nighttime Spectacular, turn to channel 20 to hear the show
  • If you're dining at California Grill on the 15th floor of the Tower, watch Wishes Nighttime Spectacular from the roof viewing area; earlier diners can show their receipt and come back up for the show

Best For

  • Families, especially larger families, who appreciate modern design, being right next to Magic Kingdom® Park and on the monorail, and plenty of amenities

The exterior mimics the original resort’s A-frame structure and the building’s shape also creates tremendous views. The pool has a unique water slide, wrapped in glass block.

General Walt Disney World® Resort Benefits

Staying on-site at an Official Walt Disney World® Hotel gives you several great complimentary benefits, including free parking, transportation and more. You'll be able to make FastPass+ reservations 60-days advance of your check-in, whereas those staying off-site can make reservations up to 30 days in advance of each day of their theme park visit. FastPass+ allows you to pre-book up to three ride or attraction reservations per day. 

The Frog Family absolutely loves staying on-site not just for the fun themes and Disney atmosphere of the hotels, but also for the convenient amenities. Some of the other complimentary benefits include:

  • Free MagicBands - You will have MagicBands shipped to your home (within the U.S.) or provided upon arrival. MagicBands are used as hotel keys and allow you to touch-and-go while entering the parks (Valid Theme Park admission required), using FastPass+ or PhotoPass locations, and making purchases. 
  • Convenient Proximity - You can easily go back to your hotel from the parks if you need a break or want to relax at the pool. It's just as easy to head back to the parks after relaxing at your hotel for a couple of hours.
  • Free Airport Service - With Disney's Magical Express® Transportation, the convenient motorcoach service transports you between Orlando International Airport and your Official Walt Disney World® Hotel. Have your MagicBands ready to go at the airport before boarding. Learn more about Disney's Magical Express® Transportation.
  • Free Park Transportation - Along with complimentary transportation to the airport, you'll also receive free transportation to all Disney Theme Parks! Depending on which Official Walt Disney World® Hotel you stay at, you'll have access to the Monorail, water launch and/or bus transportation. Many of the Official Walt Disney World® Hotels are also walking distance to the parks and other resorts.
  • Free Wi-Fi - When staying on-site, you'll have access to complimentary wi-fi, available in your room and select public areas, such as the pools, arcades, restaurants and more.
  • Free Parking - You'll receive complimentary parking at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort, plus the other hotels and the parks. This can add up to a big savings, especially on longer stays!
  • Extended Theme Park Hours - With Extra Magic Hours Benefit, you can enter the park on select days one hour early, or stay an extra two hours after park closing. If you want to be able to stay at a park during regular hours, but use your EMH for a different park, you'll need a Park Hopper ticket. Read more about Extra Magic Hours Benefit and when we recommend you use them. (Valid Theme Park admission and Resort ID required)
  • Kids' Programs - The Official Walt Disney World® Hotels offer child care services for a cost when parents want a night out. They usually require advanced reservations, so be sure to look into the resort's specific program! All resort guests are welcome to use the child care services at any of the Official Walt Disney World® Hotels. The following resorts offer child care services:
  • All Official Walt Disney World® Hotels: Kid's Nite Out, Inc. (In-Room Babysitting)
  • Disney's Polynesian Village Resort: Lilo's Playhouse
  • Disney's Wilderness Lodge: Cub's Den
  • Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge: Simba's Cubhouse
  • Disney's Yacht Club & Disney's Beach Club Resorts: Sandcastle Club
