    Will be coming back to Disneyworld in October 2017. Last time we stayed at the Bay Lakes Tower, forgot how soon should be book a room (2BDR villa) at this resort? 6months, 9 months, a year?

    Welcome Home, Kay!

    Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is such a stunning and special place for our family. It is very hard to beat a quick stroll from your Disney Vacation Club Villa to Magic Kingdom Park with the monorail whirring overhead. I'm thrilled that you will be returning!

    My advice is always to book your Disney Vacation Club Resort accommodations as early as possible. This is especially true at this particular resort.  Keep in mind that Disney Vacation Club Members are free to reserve their Home Resort with points a full 11- months before your check-in date and all other DVC Resorts 7- months before your arrival. 

    If you are not yet a Disney Vacation Club Member, you can reserve your resort accommodations by calling a friendly vacation advisor at 407-W-Disney or 407-934-7639 a full 499- days before you plan to travel. 

    I hope that help as you plan your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation, Kay. Please come back and visit with any other questions that you might have.  We love to help!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
