    Jodie, still trying to decide between CS or BLT for our next trip. Location of BLT is great, but what about the pool? Does it get overcrowded? CS has nice quite pools. Trip will be in March, but hoping to spend time at the pool every day weather permitting

    Hi there Danielle!

    It's so great to hEAR back from you! Choosing the best resort location can often be one of the most exciting, yet challenging decisions when planning a Walt Disney World vacation. I definitely take into consideration the time of year and our vacation itinerary when choosing a resort. I have personally stayed at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort and Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. When we stayed at Bay Lake Tower, it was over Memorial Day Weekend, which can traditionally be a more crowded time of the year to visit. We actually planned a resort day (non-park) for Memorial Day and never found Bay Cove Pool to be overly crowded. We also enjoyed being able to use the larger main pool and Bay Lake Pool at Disney's Contemporary Resort. You may be interested to know that Bay Cove Pool is exclusive to guests staying at Bay Lake Tower. Although I honestly don't think you can go wrong with either of these uniquely themed resorts, I think you will find the location of Bay Lake Tower to be ideal when going back for daily pool time, especially when traveling from Magic Kingdom Park and Epcot. I hope this information is helpful! Please don't hesitate to visit me again if you have any additional vacation planning questions. Best wishes for a magical trip, Danielle!

    Happy Travels,
