46. BayLakeTower.net

 As I have mentioned in previous articles, my family and I are members of Disney's Vacation Club (DVC). We purchased our membership back in 2009 and our "home resort" is Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort. Although we have made three DVC trips to date, we will be staying at Bay Lake Tower for the first time in July.  In doing some research on the fairly new resort, I came across a website that is specifically dedicated to this neighbor of the Magic Kingdom. Just as there are many sites that pay tribute to specific Walt Disney World attractions, there are also websites that focus on individual resorts.

BayLakeTower.net is a great website created by a Walt Disney World fan.  It is organized into two major sections.  The first tab is simply labeled Bay Lake Tower and is basically a photo and video gallery.  This is a good place to see pictures and floorplans of the different style rooms and villas.  There are also interesting photos from the Top of the World Lounge including inside, outside, and views looking out from the lounge. You can also see pics of the pool and courtyard, Magic Kingdom fireworks, and even a construction video of the resort.

The second major section of this website is entitled "Promo and Concept."  Here you will find a bunch of interesting material related to the promotion of the resort. Most of what can be found here was used in marketing Bay Lake Tower to current and prospective DVC members.  There are pictures, videos and the actual "mailer" sent to members.  You can even read the original press release that announced the resort back in 2008.  This section of the website concludes with a fact sheet that lists details about Bay Lake Tower as well as the Disney Vacation Club.
Although there are really two major sections of BayLakeTower.net, there is actually one additional tab that is worth noting.  This tab is labeled "ContemporaryResort.net" and is a link to the sister website to BayLakeTower.net.  As you may guess from the title, this site highlights the Contemporary Resort.  It is very similar to BayLakeTower.net in that it includes photo and video galleries as well as fun information about the resort. I definitely recommend both of these websites to anyone who is planning on staying at either resort.  They are also fun sites for those who have vacationed here and would like to revisit their experience through pictures.

Have a Disneyriffic day and remember to keep moving forward.  See ya real soon!
