    If we stay at the Bay Lake Towers, is there access to what used to be called Downtown Disney by the Disney bus or rail system?

    Greetings, Jacqueline!

    A stay at Bay Lake Tower Resort at Disney's Contemporary Resort is a fabulous way to add a little extra magic to your stay. This location is located within walking distance of Magic Kingdom Park and offers access to a variety of Disney transportation options. This includes complimentary transportation to the theme parks, water parks, and Disney Springs (formally known as Downtown Disney). Let's go over all you need to know about getting around Walt Disney World Resort from Bay Lake Tower!

    Guests staying at Bay Lake tower can take a bus to get to Disney Springs. The buses are part of the complementary Disney transportation line. The bus stop for Bay Lake Tower is located just outside of Disney's Contemporary Resort (a very short walk). You will head out of the main entrance of Bay Lake Tower, turn to the left, and be at the bus stop in just a few moments. You can also catch a bus to Disney's Animal Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios at this stop. Buses run about every 20 minutes, and you can even check bus times through the My Disney Experience mobile app

    Guests at this resort can take the monorail to Disney's Magic Kingdom, or to the Transportation and Ticket Center- which offers a transfer to EPCOT. If you are hoping to enjoy time at other Walt Disney World Resorts during your stay, you can take the short walk to Magic Kingdom Park, and take the bus heading to the resort of your choice. This is a fabulous way to enjoy the dining options offered at various resorts when you are looking to spend some time out of the theme parks!

    I hope your upcoming adventure is memorable and magical!
    We'll see ya real soon!
