"With the Magic Kingdom Park at your doorstep, your new vacation home offers one of the most desired locations in the Walt Disney World Resort. Perhaps in the entire world. It's a place where superb amenities becon inside and fireworks light up the outside sky--where you can enjoy Splash Mountain thrills one minute and relax in your whirlpool tub the next. Soar through the sky on Peter Pan's Flight, the glide 'home' on a short monorail ride. Fully immersed in the Disney magic, Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort will be your backdrop for decades of memorable moments."
