Great location - Great room

Pros: great location
We loved Bay Lake Tower. It was more like an apartment than a hotel room. There was plenty of room for everyone. The jetted tub with a view of the castle at Magic Kingdom was hard to beat. We were able to watch the fire works from our balcony. It is within walking distance to Magic Kingdom so great for little ones that still need naps. I would highly recommend. I think you would have a hard time finding a better place to stay at Disney.

We felt like VIP's!

Pros: Quiet
The staff was very accommodating and friendly. We like our privacy and were not disturbed whatsoever. Our view of Bay Lake was extraordinary. A very relaxing stay. Oh, and Disney World itself was not too bad!

very comfortable but expensive

Pros: Close restaurants
i loved that we had a minikitchen with a lot of space to store food. we prepared breakfast in the room so we would not waste time to go to the parks. Everything was perfect, a lot of supplies, very clean, expensive considering others hotels , but the convenience to use the disney's monorail saved us a lot of time. in a blink of an eye we where from the magic kindom to others disneys' hotels we had dinner reservations. we did not waste time thanks to the monorail. I loved it! the hotel was very clean in general. Nice but expensive.
