    Hi Moms! Does anyone know if the grills at Bay Lake Tower are gas or charcoal?

    Hi Latisha, 

    You must be so excited about your upcoming stay at Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Located just steps away from Magic Kingdom Park, with spectacular views of Bay Lake and Magic Kingdom, it is no wonder that this modern and elegant Resort is so popular with guests.

    As with all Disney Vacation Club Resorts, you will enjoy many “home away from home” amenities at Bay Lake Tower, including an outdoor grill area where guests are welcome to cook and eat food. The Barbeque Pavillion at Bay Lake Tower is located near Bay Cove Pool and contains several charcoal barbeque grills as well as an adjacent covered eating area with picnic tables overlooking picturesque Bay Lake.

    Be sure to pick up some charcoal in advance of your cook-out from Fantasia Market at the adjacent Contemporary Resort, which is connected to Bay Lake Tower by a convenient Sky Walk Bridge. You should also be able to obtain cooking utensils and grilling tools at Bay Lake Tower’s Community Hall.

    If you are a Disney Vacation Club Member, don't miss out on one of the best perks of a stay at Bay Lake Tower by visiting Top of the World Lounge. Perched atop Bay Lake Tower, this modern and luxurious upscale lounge has plenty of indoor seating as well as an outdoor observation deck which provides some of the best views of the fireworks from Magic Kingdom Park. No doubt you will likely want to make at least one visit during your stay.

    I hope you have a wonderful upcoming vacation at Bay Lake Tower. Should you have any further questions in advance of your trip, please be sure to send them our way. We would be happy to hEAR from you!
