    We have a reservation for Deluxe Studio at the Bay Lake Tower, when checking in, under room requests there is an option for North side rooms. Is this the side that would face the Magic Kingdom?

    Hello Kimberly, welcome to planDisney!

    It's great to chat with a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member, how wonderful that you'll be heading Home in the Fall! I love visiting Walt Disney World Resort at that time of year; walking down Main Street, U.S.A. and seeing the colorful leaves and brightly colored pumpkins decorating the window sills and light posts! Fall is in the air!

    Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is one of my family's Home resorts. One of my favorite things about it is the proximity to Magic Kingdom Park. The pathway from Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort to Magic Kingdom Park provides Guests with a convenient and pleasant route to access the park, eliminating the need for alternative transportation like the Walt Disney World Monorail or bus. This was especially useful when my kids were smaller and in a stroller - we didn't need to worry about accessing bus transportation and collapsing the stroller. 

    I stayed at Bay Lake Tower last year and as a room request, I selected the North-facing rooms. I checked with a DVC rep who confirmed that many of the North-facing rooms overlook the trees between Magic Kingdom and the Lake but you might luck out like I did and have a room where you can see Space Mountain. If you'd like to wake up in a Deluxe Studio that faces the Magic Kingdom, you'll need to choose a Deluxe Studio - Theme Park View. The other categories are Lake View and Standard View. 

    Tip: While you're staying at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort, be sure to visit Top of the World Lounge - A Villains Lair, it's a must-do for DVC Members and their Guests! Be sure to head to the Lounge early as it operates on a first-come-first-served basis and can fill up quickly on busy nights. While waiting for the heart-swelling Happily Ever After to begin, I highly recommend indulging in the delicious 7 Lair cake for a delightful snack!

    Kimberly, I hope this information is helpful to your vacation planning. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
