    Bay Lake Tower Full Refurb. Hello! Last Dec the VP of Operations for BLT commented and announced the refurb to occur late 2024 into 2025. At this point I would expect to have seen a notice posted but have not so far. Is there any confirmation on timing :-)

    Welcome Home, Brian! Thanks so much for stopping by planDisney. When I'm counting down the days until my next Disney Vacation Club adventure, there's nothing better than helping a fellow Member track down the information they need to make their trip as magical as can be!

    Clearly, you're a fellow of discerning tastes if you're a fan of Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort--it's one of our family's favorites, too! It's hands-down the best location to get to Magic Kingdom Park and has an added bonus for DVC Members: the Top of the World Lounge - Villains Lair. It's a perfect spot to enjoy some wickedly good drinks and enjoy the Happily Ever After fireworks spectacular!

    One thing that sets Disney Vacation Club apart is its commitment to providing deluxe-level accommodations that are in excellent condition. To maintain these exacting standards, all the DVC resorts are on a regular schedule of refurbishments and renovations. I’m always amazed at how they strike a perfect balance between preserving the character of each resort and incorporating new amenities and features that only add to the ambiance. For instance, I love the change from sleeper sofas to Murphy beds that we’ve seen in many recently renovated resorts!

    Brian, the helpful folks at Member Services have told me in the past that the best place to find updates on renovations is on the resort website. While there is no information currently posted regarding the planned Bay Lake Tower renovations on the DVC site, I found the deets when I navigated through the Walt Disney World Resort website. The renovations are expected to begin this September and continue through September 2025! 

    I know that you're planning a stay in September, but don't fret.  While you may see and hear some construction around the resort, this work typically only occurs during daytime hours and doesn't affect Guest experience beyond possibly needing to take an alternate route here and there. I'm sure you'll be so busy exploring that you'll barely notice--and the end results of the refurbishments are sure to be amazing!

    I hope this is just the information you were looking for and that you're counting down the days until your fall vacation. Thanks again for visiting planDisney, Brian! Please don't hesitate to reach out directly if I can help with any other questions about all things DVC and Walt Disney World. 

    Stay Magical!
