    Tiffany Asked

    My husband & I plan to stay at BLT with our 7, 3 and 1 year olds. We are concerned there isn't as much to do as compared with AK villas or BC villas for the kids. Do you agree? Also, how is the parking situation there? We like easy access to our vehicl

    Howdy Tiffany! This is such a great question! Let me begin by telling you that, in my opinion, both Animal Kingdom Villas and Beach Club Villas have more to do for kiddos in your age range. Whether you are spending your time looking at animals at Animal Kingdom or enjoying the most amazing pool I have ever been in at Beach Club, both resorts have so much to offer.

    The above being true, Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is an AMAZING Disney Vacation Club Resort and I would encourage you to stay there, in particular because of the ages of your children.

    1st of all, location, location, location! You will LOVE being able to WALK to and from Magic Kingdom! As an added bonus, the monorail is conveniently located at the Contemporary. Chef Mickey's is always on our must do list and the pool at Bay Lake is great!! The slide at Beach Club, though amazing, is a bit too much for our kiddos but they love the slide at Bay Lake. There is also a white-sand beach that my kiddos enjoy. It's a nice area for them to run and play and get the wiggles out if needed. On our last trip, we spent a few minutes there before getting ready to depart for the long trip home. We always try to make a stop at Top of the World Lounge. Because our kiddos are so young, we usually arrive early and don't typically stay too long. They have wonderful appetizers and of course, delicious adult and kid friendly beverages.

    The parking is wonderful. You step out the lobby and there you are in the parking lot.

    I truly cannot say enough great things about Bay Lake Tower. You will not find zebras or a sand bottom pool but you will find an amazing DVC resort that offers a view like no other!!

    Thanks so much for your question and please let me know if you need any further information. Have a magical day!!!
