Our upcoming Fall 2009 issue includes a full story on the newly opened Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. If you’re a Disney Vacation Club member staying at the resort, you’ll have access to the Top of the World Lounge. It’s on the top floor with a large balcony that offers a great view of the Magic Kingdom and the nightly fireworks show, “Wishes”.
Here’s a panoramic shot of the view just after the show. You can see a larger version of this photo and others in our Photo Gallery.
