    I want to book a deluxe studio at BLTowers and want to book as a cash room. Can I do this online or do I need to do this through DVC member services?

    Hi Cynthia!

    Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort is a fantastic choice!  With a Deluxe Studio Villa, you’ll enjoy a kitchenette in your room, perfect for making a quick breakfast before your day in the parks. The Magic Kingdom is only a short walk away, and you’ll have some fantastic dining choices located right at your resort!

    If you would like to book a Deluxe Studio Villa and are a Disney Vacation Club Member, I would start by calling Member Services. There are sometimes Deluxe Villas available to Members as a cash reservation at a discount. These rooms are limited and are not always available, but you would need to call to get the details for your specific dates.

    If there is not a discount or room available through Disney Vacation Club, or for Guests who are not Disney Vacation Club Members, Deluxe Villas are also available to book with My Disney Experience, or by calling the Walt Disney World Travel Company directly. Cash rooms booked through Disney and though Disney Vacation Club can be canceled for a full refund 5 days or more before your check-in date. Because I love a good deal, I recommend that either way you book, you keep an eye on Disney’s Special Offers Page. While no special deals have been announced for August yet, there may be discounts announced later this year that might work for your dates. If a discount becomes available that would be a better deal for you, and it is more than 5 days before check-in, depending on availability you may be able to cancel and rebook with the discount.

    Disney’s Contemporary Resort is home to some of my favorite dining locations. California Grill is well known for its sweeping views, fresh and seasonal fare, and is a popular dinner location. My entire family also has come to love The Wave of American Flavors. This location is often overlooked, and it is truly a hidden gem. I highly recommend their beef tenderloin and creme brûlée for dessert!

    I hope you are able to secure the room you are looking for, Cynthia. Please let us know what additional questions you have as you plan your summer visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, we are here to help!

    Wishing you Membership Magic!
