We have stayed at this resort several times. Highly recommend staying there for New Years Eve or July 4th. The resort has many activities during the day and into the evening on July 4th. You’ll have exclusive access to the “Top of the World Lounge” that only guests staying on property will have. Exclusive area to view the July 4th fireworks show with the audio channeled in with speakers throughout. Best perk of all is being able to walk to and from the Magic Kingdom, so no waiting in line to get on the monorail, boat or bus transportation.
More Fun Facts:
Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, part of the Disney Vacation Club, is a 15-story addition that officially opened on August 4, 2009. It is located on the former location of the demolished North Garden Wing rooms. The tower shares design features with the original resort. The front desk, concierge, valet, bell services and transportation are shared services provided through the main resort. Bay Lake Tower has a concierge desk and an online check-in desk of their own for guests who wish to check into Bay Lake Tower directly. Its fifth floor is connected by a skyway from the main tower’s fourth floor.
The units were among the most expensive offered by Disney Vacation Club at initial offering, presumably because of their proximity to the Magic Kingdom. Some of the resort’s features include full-length windows with views into the Magic Kingdom or onto Bay Lake. Some bathrooms on the Magic Kingdom side include movable partitions to permit watching the park’s fireworks displays from the bathtub.
