    We have an upcoming stay at Bay Lake tower in October with a bay view. I have heard there are rooms n the tower with the bay view that also offer a partial park view. any suggestions on room numbers to request to hopefully get this half & half view?

    Hi Mimi,

    I really enjoy a stay at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort. The decor and theme is so sleek and modern, and the quick walk to Magic Kingdom Park is wonderful.

    I believe that I have stayed in one of the villas to which you are referring. It was classified as a Lake View; however, we were able to see part of Magic Kingdom Park from our balcony. I would suggest that you describe your request on your reservation as you did in this question. You are looking for a room on the north side of Bay Lake Tower and hoping for a glimpse of Magic Kingdom Park. Describing the request in this way will allow the cast member to know what you are looking for; this way, if an exact room number is not available, the cast member still knows what you would like.  

    I suggest that you be sure that this request is noted on your reservation. If you are a Disney Vacation Club member, you can have it noted by calling Disney Vacation Club Member Services at 1-800-800-9800. If you made your reservation another way, such as through Disney directly, contact them directly to have the request noted. When you are within a week of your vacation, you might call Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort directly at 407-824-1000 to be sure that your request is noted. Finally, on the day that you check in, if the villa that you are assigned does not meet your request, you can ask what other villas might be available. Sometimes I find that if I ask, and if I am willing to wait a while for a different villa to become available, a villa that meets my request might become available. Please do note that while Disney will do their best to honor all requests, they are not guaranteed.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Mimi. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions!
