Opened in 2009 as an addition to Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Bay Lake Tower is one of the best located resorts on Disney property. Just a hop, skip and a jump from Magic Kingdom, this is the place to stay if you’re planning to visit the Magic Kingdom on your next trip to Disney World.Built to match the Contemporary’s modern aesthetic, Bay Lake Tower is a sleek, modern and luxurious addition to the DVC family. The single C-shaped tower, which sits on the beautiful Bay Lake, offers guests a variety of fun activities, beautiful views of the lake and Magic Kingdom and access to the Contemporary Resort and all it has it offer.

Bay Lake Tower is also home to the Top of the World lounge.
