The Bay Lake Tower Lake Buena Vista Fl is part of the Disney Contemporary Resort located on the beauty of Bay Lake. Although, the Bay Lake Tower is designed to look like it is a part of the Contemporary Resort, you only have access to it if you have booked a room at this location. If you are staying at the Contemporary Hotel, you will see a connecting ramp but if you try to enter, it will ask for a pass to get in.

Getting around

One of the big perks of staying at the Disney Resort Bay Lake Tower is the fact that it is so close to the Magic Kingdom. Imagine walking out on your very own balcony and there you see Cinderella’s Castle as your back drop. Of course, not all rooms have this view but if you have an interest, you can upgrade to give this to your children. Since it is almost, literally, a stones throw away, you can venture out by foot to make the short trip to the gates of the Magic Kingdom. That is only one mode of transportation. You also have easy access to the Monorail system, buses and even water taxi service.


The rooms that you will stay in are sleek and well styles with sharp lines to accentuate the contemporary feel of the attached resort. All of the rooms are considered well above average. Since this is a Disney Vacation Club member resort, you can expect even the smaller Studios to have a place to fix something to eat. That is right, all of these units come with a Kitchen or Kitchenette which gives you an advantage over some of the other Disney Resorts. Do you have a larger family or need to accommodate additional guests, if so, you also have options of 1 to 3 bedroom villas sleeping up to 9 guests. To read more about these options, take a look at all of the different Room types at the Bay Lake Tower Resort.

So many fun water activities

There are so many great things to do on and by the water at the Bay Lake Tower Resort in Disney World Orlando. The pool is just the start having a large swimming area but also adding in the fun of a spiral Water Slide for the family to enjoy. There is even a smaller water slide that the little ones can go down. Off to the side you will also find a splashing zone for the small kids in the group. Shaped like Mickey Ears with bubbling fountains that continue to add a level of fun and surprises, this is a fantastic place to sit down and relax while letting your kids play around you. On top of the pool, since you are sitting beside Bay Lake, a marina with a number of water sport activities await your arrival. The fun never ends and you can continue to read more about the Bay Lake Tower Pools.

Plenty of things to do

Splashing in the water is only part of the fun you will have at the Tower. Hop out of the water for a while and challenge your family to a fun round of Bocce Ball or maybe take park in a Shuffleboard game. The white sandy beaches are calling you by the Bay while you watch your other family members zipping around on the lake in their very own Water Craft rented from the marina. More fun can be had so take some time to look over all the Amenities available.


If you are looking to stay on the property for an entire day, you will have to find something good to eat. You will find that there is no shortage of food at this, or any other Disney location for that matter. Whether you want indoor dining to sit down and relax or just grab something quick by the pool, you are covered either way. All of the dining options can be found at the Bay Lake Tower Quick Facts.
