    We just read that renovations will be taking place at Bay Lake Towers Sept '24 - Sept '25. Is there a detailed plan to what rooms and/or floors will be done first?

    Hello Kelly,

    Welcome Home and welcome to planDisney! Ah, refurbishments and growing pains can be tricky but once over, everything is lovely! Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is next on the schedule for refurbishments and will be a full one. As noted on the website, refurbishment work will take place from September 2024 to September 2025. I spoke with Disney Vacation Club Member Services and unfortunately, they were not able to share a specific plan of the order in which the resort will be completed. You are, however, able to request a refurbished room but there is no guarantee that you will be placed in one. To do this, you can phone Member Services to have the request added to your reservation. 

    While staying at Bake Lake Tower, be sure to head up to the 16th floor and visit the Top of the World Lounge - A Villains Lair. It is a great place to relax and has a great view for watching Happily Ever After, a nighttime spectacular at Magic Kingdom.  I recommend going to the Lounge early because seating is available on a first-come-first-served basis, and on busy nights, it fills up quickly. If you want a snack while waiting for the fireworks to begin, I highly recommend trying the 7 Lair cake – it's incredible!

    Kelly, I hope this helps with your vacation planning. Please visit planDisney again if you have any other DVC or planning questions!

    See ya real soon,
