More Room Types

The curving Bay Lake Tower, next to the distinctive Contemporary Resort, shares the honor of being the closest lodging to Disney’s Magic Kingdom. After a long day pounding the park pavement, take a 10-minute stroll back to the room while everyone else waits to board buses, boats or monorails.

In contrast to the hotel rooms at the better-known A-frame Contemporary, Bay Lake was designed with Disney Vacation Club Members in mind, offering studios, one- and two-bedroom suites, all with patios and free Wi-Fi. Like its Contemporary counterpart, bold colors and prints liven up sleek minimalist furnishings and graphic abstract artwork cheekily incorporates the iconic mouse ears.

Pay extra for a Magic Kingdom View room and get a front-row seat to the nightly fireworks and boat shows. Or, take a tip from past penny-wise guests who skirt the higher prices and take it in from the Contemporary’s observation deck.

Every room has a kitchenette and washer/dryerv -- helpful for extended stays with little ones. Bay Lake guests also have exclusive use of the tower’s zero-entry pool, waterslide and splash fountains, as well as access to the Contemporary’s two pools.

Some grumble that a stay at the Bay Lake Towers means a constant back and forth to the Contemporary's amenities, where all the restaurants and the monorail stop are located.

Guests of Disney Resort hotels receive the benefits of early FastPass+ access, extra hours in the theme parks, MagicBand bracelets for keyless room entry, theme park admission and purchases, complimentary parking and transportation within the resort and to the airport, as well as dining plans for every budget.
