    Disney's Contemporary Resort opened October 1, 1971. In its planning stages, the resort was originally called Tempo Bay Resort. The Contemporary Resort guest rooms were assembled at an off-site plant at the rate of about 15 rooms a day. Construction was overseen by the United States Steel Corporation (CONSTRUCTION VIDEO). The rooms were filled with furniture and then inserted into the sides of the 14-story building. In the original concept for Disney's Contemporary Resort, guests would be able to walk to the Magic Kingdom's Tomorrowland.

    GUEST SERVICES


    Guest laundry facilities are located on the 2nd floor of the South Garden Wing.

    In spring of 2015, WDW laundry rooms were converted from a cash payment system to a credit/debit card-only payment system. Guests now have the ability to remotely check their laundry's status and set-up alerts via the internet.

    Standard-size washers and dryers cost $2.00 per load. (Helpful hint: Don't overload the dryer as it will take much longer for clothes to dry). Laundry rooms are open 24 hours.

    Single use packets of detergent and fabric softener are available for purchase with a credit or debit card.

    Dry cleaning and valet laundry services are also available and can be arranged by pressing Housekeeping on your telephone. For same day service, call by 8:30 a.m. for pickup. Items will be returned after 7:00 p.m. that day. Dry cleaning and valet laundry services prices are listed on the laundry card found hanging in the room closet:

    RESORT AIRLINE CHECK-IN:

    If you're departing domestically on a designated airline, enjoy the convenience of Resort Airline Check-in Service, which allows you to receive your return boarding pass and check luggage at your Walt Disney World hotel, bypassing airport check-in completely.

    Simply visit the Resort Airline Check-In Desk up to 3 hours prior to your flight departure time. A valid government issued photo I.D. and room key is required to participate.


    WIFI/INTERNET:

    WiFi is FREE throughout the resort, parks and in all rooms.



    SELF-PARKING is free and conveniently located directly in front of BLT.


    VALET PARKING is $25 per day (plus optional tip). Guests need only pay for valet parking once per day at Disney resorts. Just show your valet receipt at the next resort to avoid being charged again.

    Disney Vacation Club members no longer receive free valet parking.

    Valet parking is free of charge to all vehicles displaying a disabilities tag at Disney facilities offering valet service.

    CLUB LEVEL AT DISNEY'S CONTEMPORARY RESORT:
    THE ATRIUM AND TOWER CLUBS


    Pre-arrival planning: Disney Signature Services has replaced the onsite Itinerary Planning Offices:
    407-939-7777

    disney.signature.services@disneyworld.com

    If you arrive by car, let the bellman know you are a club level guest. They will either instruct you to check-in in the lobby, (this might happen if they are very busy or if it is before 7 AM or after 10 PM when club level is closed) or a club level curbside greeter will greet you outside.

    The CM will check your name against a list, might ask you for ID, and will then call upstairs and let a concierge know you have arrived. If someone needs to park a car, simply have the bellman store your luggage then park the car and the curbside CM will wait to take you upstairs until your party is all together.


    [​IMG]



    AtriumTowerClubs.jpg

    Once upstairs on the 12th or 14th floor, you will check-in at the concierge desk between the hours of 7 AM and 10 PM.

    If your room is ready, you will be escorted to your room. If it is not ready, you will be called or texted when it is ready. You are welcome to use the lounge even if your room isn't ready. You will be given your KTTW card and/or MagicBand.



    Your park tickets and dining plan (if applicable) will be loaded onto your KTTW card/MagicBand even if your room is not ready. You have full lounge access from the time you check-in (as early as 6:30 AM) until 10 PM (when the lounge closes) of your check-out day.


    Club level guests have the same amenities as all guests, PLUS:

    ~Two robes (additional robes can be requested).

    ~IPO and concierge staff available prior to and during your visit for reservations and vacation planning.

    ~Welcome gift:

    [​IMG]

    ~Access to the exclusive Atrium Club lounge when staying on the 12th floor and access to the Tower Club lounge when staying on the 14th floor. Featuring daily continental breakfast, snacks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, appetizers and desserts. Food and beverages can be taken back to your room.

    ~Automatic nightly turn-down service which includes replenishment of towels and toiletries, disposing of trash, closing the curtains and dimming the lights



    TOWER CLUB


    TOWER CLUB/14TH FLOOR MAP:
    c9641a4b-4854-4040-afd8-771cf7b96ce7.jpg

    ~The Tower Club has a total of sixteen rooms: Five Standard rooms (two King and three Queen) and eleven suites comprised of One and Two Bedroom Suites, a Vice Presidential Suite and a Presidential Suite. When booking a Tower Club KING room, the confirmation will read: Standard Club Level - KING ("CW"), There is no guarantee of a Magic Kingdom or Bay Lake View with a Queen request, however, both King rooms face the MK. When booking a suite, you will be assigned either a Bay Lake or Magic Kingdom View. For Queens and Suites, you can request a view, though it can't be guaranteed.

    ~The lounge on the 12th floor (Atrium Club) is bigger and has more seating then the 14th floor Tower Club. Three Standard rooms were used to build the 12th floor lounge. There are three balconies on the MK side for Club Level guests to watch the fireworks.

    ~The 14th floor room and lounge balconies are bigger than the 12th floor balconies.

    ~Both floors serve the exact same food for breakfast, afternoon snacks, 5 PM hors d'oeuvres and 8 PM deserts & cordials. The 12th floor Atrium Club rooms are marginally less expensive than the 14th floor Tower Club rooms.

    SUITES

    From Cara Goldsbury's book, The Luxury Guide to Walt Disney World and her website:

    One-Bedroom Suites have 1,428 square feet and come with either a Bay Lake or a Magic Kingdom view. The living area has a modern décor with soothing charcoal-toned carpeting, four easy chairs, sofa, six-person dining table, oversized flat-panel TV, desk with computer, wet bar, and a deep balcony. A full bath with single sink and shower sits off the marble entry hall. The suites bedroom is similar to a standard-type guest room with two queen beds, but with a bath slightly larger than a standard with tub and sink in one room and a toilet and sink in another area. A king bedded guest room can be added to make this a two-bedroom suite with 1,892 square feet.

    The two-bedroom, three-bath Presidential Suite sports 2,061 square feet. Deep balconies span the length of the suite and afford spectacular Magic Kingdom views. A spacious living room decorated in a neutral color scheme comes with a wet bar and microwave, sofa bed, two easy chairs with ottomans, large flat-panel TV, desk with computer, and six-person dining table. Off the dining area is a two-person bar that opens into the suites kitchen with full-size refrigerator, wet bar sink, and microwave. Guests love the huge king-bedded master bedroom with its large sitting area, TV, oversized bureau, two easy chairs with ottomans, and full-size working desk, as well as a mammoth whirlpool bathtub, separate marble shower with wall jets, double sinks, two closets, and vanity desk inside the walk-in closet. The second bedroom comes with two queen-size beds and single-sink bath. An additional full bath is off the marble entry hall.


    ~PRESIDENTIAL SUITE VIDEO


    The two-bedroom, three-bath Vice Presidential Suite at 1,985 square feet has fun contemporary furnishings, fantasy lighting fixtures, and divine dove gray carpeting. Off the foyer is a single-sink full bath with shower and in the living area (believe it or not its smaller than the living area in a one-bedroom suite) is a six-person dining table, wet bar and microwave, two easy chairs, sleeper sofa, desk with computer, oversized flat-panel TV, and deep balconies spanning the length of the suite with views of Bay Lake and Epcots Spaceship Earth. There are two queen-size beds and working desk in the sizable master bedroom and a king in the second bedroom. The master bathrooms tub is sans a whirlpool, but there is a shower with wall jets, bidet, vanity desk, and walk-in closet.

    "I contacted the resort and there is a connecting door to the presidential suite but it is to another two bedroom suite. That suite then has a connecting door to a one bedroom suite. So you could get a five bedroom suite by booking all of them. The only way to get three bedrooms is to book the two bedroom and the one bedroom but then you can't get the presidential. Of course you could always book the presidential and the one bedroom but they wouldn't be connecting."

    BLT VILLA RATES/TYPES

    HISTORICAL DISCOUNTS




    From AllEars:

    ~There are 167 miles of post-tensioning cable running through the concrete slabs. These cables could stretch from Bay Lake Tower to Disneys Vero Beach Resort and back.

    ~There are 1,398 tons of reinforcing steel, known as rebar, within the structure. This is equal to the weight of 254 full-grown elephants.

    ~Bay Lake Tower rests on a foundation of more than 800 concrete piles that are 16 in diameter and extend 70 into the ground. Stacked on top of one another, these would reach more than 10 miles into the sky.

    ~Although demolition of the North Garden Wing of the Contemporary began in the spring of 2007 and construction began in the summer of 2007; it wasn't until September 16, 2008, that the Disney Vacation Club officially announced Bay Lake Tower!

    Well Kook.....thought I would mosey on over since I see you are open for business. New place looks fantastic. Very well decorated with a fabulous floor plan. I think I will pull up a chair and hang out here for a while. Even longer if those rumored discounts come out tomorrow with CR BLV and a 30 or 35% next to the rack rate.....:chat: If not, it will just be a short visit here and there to admire the new place:goodvibes
