Did You Know These Tips About Bay Lake Tower At Disney’s Contemporary Resort
Location, Location, Location
It’s hard to beat Disney’s Bay Lake Tower for location, specifically because it is so close to the Magic Kingdom. The usual bus service available at all Disney resorts is an option for guests staying here, but it’s not necessarily your best option. You may already be aware that the monorail runs directly through the Contemporary Resort, which is connected to Bay Lake Tower, making it easy to hop on a train and get to the Magic Kingdom. But did you know that there an even better way of travelling from Bay Lake Tower to Disney’s flagship theme park (and that’s not including the standard buses offered at every Disney resort)? It’s actually possible to walk, and the good news is that it only takes approximately ten minutes (and no waiting in line required)! This is especially beneficial for families with young kids who will be spending most of their time in this park; you really can’t get much closer to the action than Bay Lake Tower!
While many guests dismiss this resort because it doesn’t have the whimsical theming of, say, Animal Kingdom Lodge or Art of Animation, the views from this resort are truly beautiful. Rooms with lake views have the most peaceful views on property. The Electrical Water Pageant can be seen sailing along Bay Lake, if you have a lake or MK view. Magic Kingdom view rooms obviously have additional appeal, especially for families with young children, and these views are among the best Magic Kingdom views of any of the resorts on the monorail. Resort guests can watch the Fireworks Show from their balconies. Turn your television to the resort station, and you’ll be able to hear the music while watching nightly fireworks over Cinderella Castle. From personal experience, there is nothing like it!! Guests and vacation club members may also go to the Top of Bay Lake Tower to watch the fireworks.
More Than Meets the Eye
Along with the amenities and activities you’d expect at any Disney resort, Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort offers some additional opportunities you won’t find at other resorts.
