Now that my Little Peter Pan is back off to school, I have a little more time to write about our wonderful experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort last month. Today I’m going to talk about our seven night stay in Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, which included a Lake View and a Theme Park View Studio.
Bay Lake Tower is fastly becoming our little family’s favourite Disney Vacation Club Resort to stay at each trip and although it’s not one of our home resorts, I really hope it will become one in the future! Our stays are becoming much more frequent and we love it’s close proximity to Magic Kingdom and the ease of walking to and fro there. The views are second to none, if like me you could admire Cinderella Castle all day and take in the bustle of Seven Seas Lagoon. As if being located right next to your favourite theme park isn’t enough, its also the resort that Quinn’s favourite, the Monorail passes through and there’s also plenty of entertainment on offer.
On this trip, Quinn enjoyed taking a lot more time than usual to unwind in the Community Hall drawing, playing with the toys available and watching a Disney movie. We also took the time to experience table tennis, mini golf and some courtyard games out by the pool. Kevin and Quinn hired a Sea Raycer to explore Bay Lake and Seven Seas Lagoon for an hour while I watched from the balcony which was wonderful. A little down time for me while the boys were having fun! We visited our favourite, Top of The World Lounge to watch Happily Ever After which was as magical as ever and as it was so hot, Quinn cooled down in the pool almost everyday.
For the first four nights we stayed in a Lake View Studio which was located on the eleventh floor of the inner rim. We requested a high floor and fell in love with our view of the pool, Bay Lake and the Orlando Skyline which lit up beautifully at night. The best part about our entire stay this trip was of course the Theme Park View Studio that we moved to from our fifth night onwards. Of course I cried as it was another Disney dream of mine to stay in a room with such a magical view!
Our room was located on the seventh floor, giving us views across Magic Kingdom, Seven Seas Lagoon, the Grand Floridian and Contemporary Resorts. Quinn spent our entire stay waving to the Monorail which was magic in itself! As well as taking in the sights of Magic Kingdom, we could also hear the sounds coming from Main Street, Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire and Move it! Shake it! MousekeDance it! Watching Happily Ever After from a different perspective on our balcony is an experience I will never forget and the best part of course was being able to tuck Quinn into bed a few minutes later!
Do you have a favourite resort? I would love to hear all about it!
