Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort

Bay Lake Tower (BLT, lol) is a resort complex attached to the Contemporary resort complex. It is a DVC only resort, so you would expect a high degree of comfort and amenities. Lets start by saying that I was amused by my first visit to BLT. First, you have to check in at the Contemporary resort, not Bay Lake Towers. When you have your room key you can access BLT - that’s right, you can’t just walk through this resort - entrance is regulated. Now all you have to do is get to the building.
