Jose Eber’s 3/20/09 Contemporary Resort Report

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

WDWNT Reporter Jose Eber visited Disney’s Contemporary Resort on Friday and has plenty of photos to share featuring the final preparations for the Bay Lake Tower addition this August. Let’s take a look at some of his photos:


The exterior of Bay Lake Tower is almost complete. The bridge is receiving some final touches, including frosted glass.


It feels a bit underhanded that they would place this kind of glass on the bridge to prevent guests not staying at the new building from getting a view that Bay Lake Tower guests pay for. However, this is fair to those paying the astronomical prices (or the ridiculous amount of DVC points) to stay there.

The path under the bridge is now open to guests


I now present, our closest look at Bay Lake Tower to date


While the building looks complete, there is a lot of work to be done on the ground floor
