Last week I had the opportunity to spend a few days with my entire family and some friends at WDW. My family are Disney Vacation Club Members and the Bay Lake Towers at the Contemporary is a Vacation Club resort (however anyone can stay at the Bay Lake Towers based on availability.)
The benefit of the Bay Lake Towers and the Contemporary Hotel is both the proximity to the Magic Kingdom and that it's on the Magic Kingdom Monorail line.
The room type we had at the Bay Lake Towers is called the 3-bedroom Grand Villa with a theme park view. The alternative view is of Bay Lake and the pools/activity area. The first floor of the room has a full kitchen, living room, laundry room, master bedroom with master bath and a second full bath in the living area. The second floor has 2 bedrooms and each has a full bath and double beds. There's a loft area on the second floor with a sleeper sofa.[caption id="" width="360" align="alignnone" caption="Courtesy Disney Vacation Club"][/caption]
The views from the room were spectacular because there were floor to ceiling windows. The view from our room looked onto the Magic Kingdom and you could see iconic figures like Cinderella's Castle and Space Mountain.
The room was really comfortable.[caption id="" width="383" align="alignnone" caption="Kitchen"][/caption]
I really enjoyed the Bay Lake Towers and even as a non Disney Vacation Club member I would stay at the Contemporary Bay Lake Towers if I was visiting The Magic Kingdom.
