Bay Lake TowersWithin the past few weeks, Disney welcomed a brand new Disney Vacation Club (DVC) Property (or Disney Deluxe Villa)! Bay Lake Towers opened after months of excitement! After all, this is the closest DVC property to the Magic Kingdom and the ONLY DVC property that is accessible by monorail! The sleek look of Bay Lake Towers and the superior views left few disappointed- this is a truly remarkable resort!

Bay Lake Towers is attached to Disney’s Contemporary Resort (the oldest resort at the Walt Disney World Resort) via walkway, thus allowing all guests of Bay Lake Towers to have full access to all amenities at the Contemporary Resort.  The 16-story Bay Lake Towers is quite an addition to this splendid resort, too! Guests of Bay Lake Towers have the luxury of villas with refrigerators, larger rooms and all the other amenities of the Deluxe Villas, while having the convenience of being a quick walk away from sit-down restaurants and a food court! Guests can walk to the Magic Kingdom or take the monorail to Epcot!

There are over 200 rooms that have spectacular views of Magic Kingdom and Bay Lake. You can witness incredible views of Wishes over Magic Kingdom and can even tune your TV to channel 20 to listen to the Wishes fireworks show as you watch it from your own balcony! Room types at Bay Lake Towers include studios, and 1 and 2-Bedroom Villas. The rooms are sleek and decorated with modern furnishings.

When you walk into Bay Lake Towers, you will see the Concierge and Welcome Desk. However, you don’t actually check-in at this lobby- you check in at the Front Desk of the Contemporary Resort. The two desks inside the lobby of Bay Lake Towers are there to assist with Top of the World, dining and recreational reservations. After you go through the lobby, you will come across the Community Room. This large room has video games, a large TV, foosball and lots of seating! There are also several Disney Cast Members there to assist with arts and crafts.  Most of these activities are FREE!

You can then head out to the beautiful courtyard where you will find shuffleboard, bocce ball, BBQ grills, picnic table and pavilion area. The spectacular pool area features a Mickey Mouse shaped splash area with water jets, hot tub, beach entry pool, and the popular glass waterslide with a huge Mickey Mouse shape at the top of the slide.  The whole pool area has a beautiful view of  Bay Lake.

One of the best amenities of Bay Lake Tower isn’t available to all guests. It’s only available to Disney Vacation Club members staying at Bay Lake Towers. It’s the Top of the World! This private lounge and deck is a perfect place to watch Wishes over the Magic Kingdom. The lounge has televisions, seating and a bar area.  Availaibility at this plush lounge is based on space available. If you are a Disney Vacation Club member, stop by the concierge on the 1st floor to make your reservations for this fantastic place!

Bay Lake Towers will quickly become one of the most popular resorts at Walt Disney World! For more information or a free no-obligation quote, contact www.magicalmousecapades.com or info@magicalmousecapades.com!
