A Look Inside A Two-Bedroom Villa At Bay Lake Tower

On my last trip down to Walt Disney World, the Disney Vacation Club was offering special room tours at all of the DVC Resorts in addition to the usual model tours. After striking up a conversation with a friendly DVC Guide at Disney's Contemporary Resort, I took the opportunity to tour a Bay Lake Tower Two-Bedroom Villa so that I snap some pictures to share with you.

Bay Lake Tower has its own dedicated lobby where guests with accommodations in the studios and villas can check in for their stay. However, the uniquely shaped building is also connected to the Contemporary's Grand Canyon Concourse via a sky bridge. The bridge offers fantastic views of the monorail, Magic Kingdom, and Bay Lake. In years past I have watched fireworks or the electric water pageant from the sky bridge.

Blonde wood and modern design grace the curved halls of Disney's Bay Lake Tower. I find the curve makes the hallways feel like they almost go on forever. Near the elevator banks you'll find Disney themed art in cheerful pastels.

The two-bedroom villa has more of a central hall where guests enter than a foyer. In the entry hall guests will find a small bathroom and a huge walk-in closet/laundry room combo. The DVC Guides that were showing us the room said that many families use the walk-in closet as a space to set up the portable crib so that small children have a quieter place to sleep.

The hall leads to the main living space which consists of an open sitting area, dining area, and kitchen. This space feels smaller to me than in other villas, but at a total of 1,152 square feet the overall villa is quite spacious.

The sitting area has a love seat and two chairs to relax in, while the dining area offers and kitchen island offer more seating options within the same space. There is also a balcony that can be accessed from the living area. The unit that I toured had a Bay Lake view, which largely consisted of a view of the rest of the building across the way, or the pool if one stepped out onto the balcony. The location of each room on the curve of the building determines how "good" your view is really going to be.

The full kitchen in the two-bedroom villa is stocked with basic necessities to make a meal, or unpack and reheat to-go selections from your favorite Disney Restaurant. There is a nice sized dining table and two high-back bar seats if you prefer to dine at the island counter.

As with all DVC two-bedroom villas the master bedroom is graced by a king-sized bed. This one also offers balcony access, a sitting area, writing desk, dresser, and television along with access to the master bath.

In the master bath guests can choose between luxuriating in a deep spa tub or sit beneath the rainfall shower. Sliding shutters doors set above the spa tub open to look into the bedroom.

The dedicated Second Bedroom feels like a standard resort room sleeping four in two queen-sized beds. There is also a dresser that acts a a television stand, a small table with two chairs, and its own bath.

The second bath is pretty standard as far as Disney resort rooms go with a room for the toilet and tub/shower and a separate area with the sink and mirror so that more than one person can get ready at a time.

If sleek design and that a modern feel are what moves you, or if you want to be as close as possible to Magic Kingdom, you can't go wrong staying in Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort. My favorite thing about Bay Lake Tower is the members only Top of the World Lounge and its spectacular view of the fireworks.
