Bay Lake Tower
at Disney's Contemporary Resort

I was apprehensive of staying the cold, metallic contemporary resort. I am more of a warm, woodsy girl, but alas, I love it at BLT! We were in the center of everything. I could see each of the theme parks from our building, 3 from our balcony. Crossing the skywalk bridge, which I thought would be a bother, was actually pretty great, a little windy, but a touch with the outdoors, shaded, and the views, I will never be able to say enough about the views.

Our greeter, Judy, at check-in, was so welcoming, hospitable, and knowledgeable.

The restaurants at Contemporary are some of the best in Disneyworld

The Wave, by far, has the best breakfast buffet at Disneyworld, and of course, the California Grill is notoriously one of the best dinner spots available. Then, there is Chef Mickeys, always a lot of fun with good food and characters. The counter service, the Contempo Grill is pretty typical of resort counter services, but with fewer snack selections, for example, I couldn't buy my bottle of Diet Coke there, but I could at the 'Market' just down the hall.

The pools are just right. There's the noisy one with a little slide and a big slide, and skirting fountains for the little ones. It is a 'walk-in' pool, with plenty of room to swim, adequate chairs, restrooms, and you can fill your resort mug right there. Over at the Contemporary there is another pool, a playground, a snack station, and, a very quiet adult pool. There is also a very small beach, with a hammock, a few chairs and fire pit. Disney does not allow swimming in Bay Lake, but you can sit on the beach and enjoy the lake, and all the wildlife that live there. Oh, and don't forget the Electrical Water Pageant each evening on Bay Lake. Check with Guest Services for the times.

We had a studio at BLT, that was more than adequate, and very comfortable. It had a small kitchen, space for our luggage (we had to use the closet for some luggage but we have 2 sets of golf clubs with us), a queen size bed with 5 or 6 pillows, a flat screen tv, and balcony with a view of Bay Lake. On the horizon we could see the Epcot's Spaceship Earth, Animal Kingdom's Mount Everest and Tree of Life, and Studio's Water Tower. From the hall where we catch the elevator, we could see Magic Kingdom. I am sure Downtown Disney's balloon must pop up somewhere out there, but I didn't get to see it.

One evening, we went up to the 'Top of the World' lounge at BLT, and watched the fireworks at Magic Kingdom complete with the 'Wishes' music and with drink in hand. That was pretty sweet!

I have stayed at the 'world' many times, but BLT is the top of my preference list now. I highly recommend staying at BLT if you get a chance. It will be a magical experience.
