Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort

The tower blends modern architectural sensibilities with the visual cues of its neighbor. The exterior mimics the original resort’s A-frame structure and the building’s shape also creates tremendous views. The pool has a unique water slide, wrapped in glass block. Two-story lobby is filled with woven woods and glass-wrapped columns. The accommodations offer sweeping views. A Sky Way Bridge links the tower to the original resort.
