    Hi! We had to cancel our December trip and are looking to rebook in Spring. My youngest will be turning 2 and in a stroller. Do you recommend the Bay Tower at the Contemporary for Guests who are not part of the DVC?

    Hi there, Amber! Thank you for taking the time to visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Although it's always disappointing to cancel a trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth, Mickey and I are thrilled that you are looking to reschedule! 

    My family of five first stayed at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort back when my tikes were itty bitty, and we've been return visitors almost annually ever since (and now my oldest is heading to college)! Since you are not currently Disney Vacation Club Members, the easiest way to stay here is to book directly through Disney, but there are also a few companies that will assist you with renting points. After our first stay, we were hooked, and now happily call it our home DVC Resort!

    This is my favorite place in the "World" for several reasons, but the location is unquestionably is the best part of staying here. The short walk to Walt Disney World's flagship theme park, Magic Kingdom Park, is especially convenient when your Mouseketeers are toddlers—being able to leave and not have to wait for transportation is priceless! Bay Lake Tower is connected to Disney's Contemporary Resort hotel by an elevated walkway and shares the main resort's restaurants and monorail service. Walking back to my room after eating at California Grill is always a big plus for me!

    If space is a priority, the one-bedroom villas offer plenty of room to spread out, and the in-room laundry facilities are a game-changer. For smaller families, the Deluxe Studios are the perfect size.  And even though you get all the advantages from the proximity of the Contemporary, Bay Lake Tower has a much more relaxed and peaceful vibe. I like to request a Lake View room so we can watch the Electrical Water Pageant from our balcony each night.

    One of the most magical reasons I like to stay at Bay Lake Tower, however, is that the lobby has the most fantastic smell! I know this sounds crazy, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you get to stay there and experience it for yourself!
