    Marty here from Toronto Cananda, How far in advance can I book my reservation for the Bay lake Towers? The trip I'm planning will be for October 2017 or even October 2018. As you know this hotel is impossible to get a reservation. Any suggestions?

    Hi Martin,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question! You are looking to book at one of my favorite Disney Vacation Club Resorts. Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is amazing. I love the sleek and modern feel of the resort, and the ability to walk to Magic Kingdom so quickly is fantastic.

    If you are a Disney Vacation Club member and are using Vacation Points to book your stay, you can make reservations at your home resort as early as 11 months in advance, and at other Disney Vacation Club resorts seven months in advance. You can do this by calling Disney Vacation Club Member Services at 1-800-800-9800, or online at the Disney Vacation Club member website.

    If you are not a Disney Vacation Club member and are looking to book your stay using a traditional payment method such as a credit card, you can book a resort-only stay at a Walt Disney World resort 499 days in advance. Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is a very popular resort. It is, however, possible that rooms in this resort might become available at times closer in to your vacation, so it never hurts to call and ask to see if there is availability as you get closer to your desired travel dates. To make a resort reservation at Walt Disney World, I suggest that you call Disney at 407-W-DISNEY (407-934-7639).

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Martin. Please do let us know if you have any further questions!
