Deluxe Disney Room With A View
This is the view from Room #7740 (Bay Lake View) at Bay Lake Tower, Walt Disney World Resort.
This room is located on the seventh floor of Bay Lake Tower and faces out towards the pool area of Disney’s Contemporary Resort (its sister hotel property), with very good views of Bay Lake to the left and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort on Seven Seas Lagoon in the distance to the right. While this is considered a Bay Lake View room, it overlooks much of the Contemporary Resort marina and is more of a 50/50 split of water view and hotel view. This is not a bad thing by any means as this room is high enough to offer some very nice views all around. The seventh floor is the lowest floor that I would recommend for any view at Bay Lake Tower (unless, of course, you prefer a ground-level walkout).
The Bay Lake View should not be underestimated
Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort is in a very unique location. The resort is located within walking distance of the Magic Kingdom entrance and offers views of both Bay Lake and Seven Seas Lagoon. While the Theme Park view rooms at Bay Lake Tower are quite nice (you can see a Bay Lake Tower Theme Park View room here), the Bay Lake Views are very nice and preferred by many guests.
Over the years I have come to appreciate the Bay Lake View rooms. You get a good view of the nightly Electrical Water Pageant and you also get to appreciate the sunrises over the lake as well. In the distance you can see nightly fireworks shows from Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. One benefit of these rooms is that you will not be awakened by the nightly fireworks show at Disney’s Magic Kingdom Park. Of course, you cannot see the fireworks from these rooms either, so it’s a bit of a trade-off in that regard.
