Yesterday Scott and I did a little resort hopping, to check out the open house for the new Bay Lake Tower - the DVC property next to the Contemporary.
Of course, the big draw of this resort is location: walking distance to Magic Kingdom and gorgeous vistas of MK from the front and Bay Lake from the back. They also did an amazing job designing and decorating the resort, too. The appliances in the kitchens are stainless steel, the furniture is modern, and the artwork is eye-catching. Oh - and the pool is shaped like Mickey's head!The view of the Grand Floridian from the 16th floor. The white blob to the left is the Wedding Pavilion.
A print that they had in both villas we toured. The original Contemporary tower is in the bottom-right corner, BLT is in the bottom left, and that's the monorail beams sweeping through the center. I wonder if they'll be selling this through disney.com in the "Resort Collection." It's sure pretty enough!
