    Default Get me excited for Bay Lake Tower!

    Last Mardi Gras we stayed at the Poly and had a wonderful time. For next Mardi Gras we are currently booked at BLT, with Wilderness Lodge's Copper Creek wait listed. For some reason, and I don't know why, I just can't get super excited about Bay Lake.

    We have stayed at WL plenty of times and its our favorite resort on property, but its been a few years since we've stayed there. I am just not sure if our wait list will come through.

    BLT would be a new resort for us. We've only stayed at Contemporary once, and only for one night. We were completely taken by surprise by how much we enjoyed our time staying at Contemporary. Which is why I don't know why I can't get excited for BLT. I just keep thinking I'll be wishing we were at the Poly or disappointed that we didn't get our WL wait list.

    Sorry so long. Just hoping some BLT fans can get me excited about staying there.

    The views from the elevator lobbies, Top of the World Lounge (yummy drinks and amazing views), the walk to Magic Kingdom. Easy access to Contemp Cafe and some of the best resort shops on property. We own at BLT and it is one of our favorites!

    It's a terrific resort!! It's so easy to get to and from the Magic Kingdom; you have the monorail to get to the other resorts; and you have great views regardless of where you stay in the building!!

    We stayed a few nights at BLT a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. The views are incredible. I loved being able to walk to MK, or hop on the monorail. We could see fireworks from our room, and from the bridge connecting BLT and CR. It really was a magical stay. We loved eating brunch at The Wave, and did I mention the views!! I would stay there in a heartbeat. I love WL and AKL, but sometimes I think its good to mix it up and try something new. The studio we stayed in felt very modern and luxe- the kitchenette was amazing, and the bathroom was great. I would be super excited to stay again!

    I understand that it is very different from the Wilderness Lodge. If you end up in BLT, I'd try to include some monorail resort hopping into my non park time. You could have an awesome dinner every night and not leave the MK area!

    Is there anything that is close to the Contemporary that you have always wanted to try? Maybe parasailing? Rent a boat? wake boarding? Tennis? Volleyball?

    Being that we were just at the Poly for a week this year, as well as our many trips over the years, there isn't really anything in the area that we have a great interest in, as far as new activities. We've done most of those things listed.

    I did make dining reservations today and I included brunch at California Grill. So that's something new for us, and located at Contemporary.

    I am sure we will have a wonderful time regardless of which resort we end up at. Some of your posts definitely made me more excited about trying BLT. Thanks so much!

    The California Grill is my favorite restaurant on property. It's sooo good! Plus it has great views.

    We stayed in BLT a few years ago for our Anniversary. We got a MK View, got home early one evening, and went to sit on the balcony. We turned the TV on to the right channel for the audio, and watched Wishes from our room. It was super cool. Plus, being able to walk to the MK is awesome. Since it's the hardest park to get to (if you drive your own car), being able to just walk over was fantastic.

    We loved it.
