FAQ About Disney's Contemporary Resort Bay Lake Tower Timeshares
Is Bay Lake Tower Worth It?
To Disney fans and especially traditionalists who are fans of the Contemporary Resort, the answer is a definite yes. Bay Lake Tower opened in 2009 and provides the type of upgraded units needed to complement the facilities of the iconic Contemporary – which dates back to the Magic Kingdom’s opening in 1971.
The timeshare units at Bay Lake Tower range from studio units to one-, two- and three-bedroom vacation condos. Units include kitchen facilities, flat-panel TV, Wi-Fi and balconies with primarily lake or theme park views. The larger, multi-room units have fully equipped kitchens, in-unit washer/dryer, living room, dining area and sofa-beds for additional guests.
The facilities include access to the exclusive Top of the World lounge on the 16th floor of Bay Lake Tower. This is a spectacular place to view the fireworks at the Magic Kingdom but remember that access is on a first come, first served basis so make sure you get there early enough to get the best view. With the drinks and nibblies on offer, you’ll be able to relax, refresh and enjoy your evening with family or friends in anticipation of the fireworks.
Whether Disney timeshare owners and guests ultimate think that Bay Tower is worth it usually comes down to evaluating the price compared to the resort facilities and intangibles such as the distance to the Magic Kingdom. You will be able to walk to the park (about a ten-minute walk) or take the monorail from the adjacent Contemporary Resort for even easier access. Plus, the monorail can take you other parks within Disney World such as Epcot.
For consumers thinking of buying directly from Disney, the Bay Lake Tower price goes for $245 per point. Because you would need a minimum of 97 points to stay in a standard view studio unit for a week during the lowest season (September 1-19), this would cost you at least $23,765 through Disney. Consider that most units need considerably more points – upwards of 200 points for more popular weeks and theme park views. Larger, multi-room units require even more points.
Compare this to the Disney timeshare resale market, where Bay Lake Tower points are reportedly going for as low as about $145 per point. Using the 97-point example, a buyer could save as much as $9,700 just by buying DVC points as resales. The savings get even larger with the greater number of points purchased.
Remember that Disney requires buyers to purchase directly from them, at a minimum of 150 points, in order to get certain perks like discounts on merchandising and access to tour and travel programs. But for the majority of Disney timeshare resale buyers, the thousands of dollars saved on the resale market outweighs the possible perks – especially because points can be exchanged for different travel products and destinations through exchange companies such as RCI and 7Across.
Can Anyone Stay at Bay Lake Tower?
Yes, provided there is space available, anyone can stay at Bay Lake Tower. Most rooms and villa units are reserved for Disney Vacation Club owners and members, but there are a limited number of units that can be booked as hotel stays for non-DVC members.
Can You Walk to Magic Kingdom from Bay Lake Tower?

Only Disney timeshare members and Bay Lake Tower guests can use the Bay Cove pool, but DVC members can also use the two pools at the nearby Contemporary Resort. Both pools are heated as well, with all pools heated to a temperature of 82F or 28C.
