    Pricey but worth it for the proximity

    The Bay Lake Tower, like any other Disney resort on the property is expensive, especially compared to the local area. However, it is worth it after noticing the traffic in the parking lots. This particular resort is closest to the Magic Kingdom (10 minute walk or can walk to adjoined resort and hop the monorail). Facilities are clean and modern. Also, at night you can catch the Magic Kingdom's firework display from the connecting bridge between the two contemporary resorts on the fourth floor.

    Disney family trip

    Excellent place to stay if you are planning on going to magic kingdom. It is at 10-15 minute walk or could take the monorail which is at a 5 minute walk. Excellent was amazing. Would highly recommend and will most definitely come back.

    Excellent Location

    You are paying to be located a quick walk to Magic Kingdom in Disney World. The location is perfect, however there are definitely alternative accomodation options that are much cheaper (half the price) and just as nice that come with a small commute. We had a small studio apartment which has a very large bathroom which was handy for the family (2 showers in the one room). This allows you to save some money on meals by being able to use the microwave and freezer. We felt that the price of the room was purely for the location as the room whilst nice but not worth the price. Our balcony looked over Magic Kingdom so we could watch the fireworks from our room. It was disappointing that we weren't able to go up to the roof to see the Fireworks. This is because roof access is limited to Disney Vacation Club members. No restaurant facilities or shops in Bayview Towers, however a walkway connects to Disney's Contemporary Resort which has a selection of restaurants and a small convenience store with cheaper meals to take back to your room and cook.

    Pros: The convenience of being able to walk to Magic Kingdom

    Cons: Allow the people paying in the hotel to go onto the roof with the Disney Vacation Club members.

    Location: The resort has a lovely pool and community room. Magic Kingdom is a 10 minute walk away. Contemporary Resort has lovely shops and food options
