Bay Lake Tower Disney Vacation Club

Bay Lake Tower Disney Vacation Club

Recently, the Disney Vacation Club released its updated 2013 and 2014 points charts for the Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

The Grand Floridian lives up to its promise of old Florida-style grandeur, spacious accommodations, and magical charm. Disney Vacation Club apparently has factored all this charm into the numbers as DVC timeshare points values at the Grand Floridian are among the highest of the Walt Disney World based resorts.

By comparison, nightly point costs at the Grand Floridian run some 30 to 40 percent higher than at Bay Lake Tower, even the rooms at Bay Lake Tower that offer the spectacular views of the Disney Magic Kingdom park and its nightly fireworks.

Let’s look at an example of how Grand Floridian Resort points compare to the Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Comparing a two-bedroom DVC Villa during “Magic Season” (for 2013, that is February 16 through March 23; April 7-30; Jun 11-August 15; and November 27-29) for a Standard View on a weekday, Bay Lake Tower requires 48 points, while the Grand Floridian villas require 64 points. For a Lake View the comparison (weekday) is Bay Lake Tower at 52 points while the Grand Floridian is 74 points and for a Theme Park View the difference is 64 points (weekday) at Bay Lake Tower and 74 DVC points for the Grand Floridian.
