We stayed earlier this month for a night in a Bay Lake Tower Deluxe Studio with Theme Park View, #7628 at Disney’s Contemporary Resort before heading to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort for four nights. We were on the sixth floor so not nearly as high up as the tower is (15 floors) but the view from the balcony was gorgeous and we saw a spectacular sunset and sunrise while there. Here are photos and video of our room!
This is our video of the room and balcony.
The room is set up nicely with main living area plus a kitchenette and bathroom. I didn’t really think of the room as small because we spent so much time on the balcony, but it is 339 square feet vs. 465 square feet for the studio at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.
The bathroom is a fairly average size.
There is a tub and shower to the left.
There was a set of H20+ products.
A lotion and another soap sat at the sink.
A full kitchenette is in between the bathroom and main room.
The microwave and ice bucket can be seen here.
A mini-fridge is below.
There is a coffee maker.
And also a toaster.
Mickey artwork is over the bed.
We never opened it, but this is a sleeper sofa.
Artwork is above the sofa.
There is a table to the left hand side.
The television seems smaller than at other resorts we’ve been to lately. Drawers are below it.
The remote control is wrapped in plastic.
Enhanced cleaning information was added when the resorts reopened last June.
There is a guide to the magic.
The best part of the room for me was the balcony.
It was pretty spacious and we ate our meals out here.
We could see Cinderella Castle.
And my favorite part of the one-night stay was viewing the sunset and sunrise. They aren’t always this stunning but we lucked out while there.
The main building is just over the bridge. I first stayed there in the 1970s.
Guests don’t need to be DVC members to stay at the resorts (we are not). This is my first stay at Bay Lake Tower, though in the past I have stayed at Disney’s Contemporary Resort a number of times. Bay Lake Tower is a close walk to the Magic Kingdom (guests can also walk there now from Disney’s Polynesian Resort and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort).
