Yesterday, I showed you the inside of our rooms at Bay Lake in DisneyWorld. Today I want to share more of the outdoors with you. I forgot my camera the two times we went to the pool areas but take my word for it, it's just as awesome as the rest of the grounds!
Coming over on the catwalk from The Contemporary ~ there was a Disney animated movie EACH night on a huge screen with chairs scattered about on the grounds (our crew stayed too busy in the parks to watch an evening movie, though) ~ you can see the water view we had of Bay Lake. There were always boats delivering passengers to various docks around the lake.
John, on the catwalk ~
This is the front of our condo building and on the right you see the walkway that connected us to The Contemporary. The Contemporary is where we walked over to catch the monorail. Magic Kingdom Express was the first stop; ours was always the last stop ~ weather was hot, hot, hot! ~ it appears that the walkway was covered; it wasn't, only the top and these few wall slabs.
Looking across the beach area to The Contemporary ~ there were marshmallow and S'mores each night on the circular firepit you see on the beach ~ the wind was normally quite breezy here at night and we never saw very many gathered for this activity.
Looking toward The Contemporary, seeing the walkway, and the gorgeous landscaping around the beach area and lake. This walkway wandered on around to the back of our building and took you past the pools and outdoors cafe ~
We saw this view of Cinderella's Castle and Space Mountain each time we walked over to The Contemporary. We never tired of the site and often stopped just to gaze. On the other side was a beautiful view of the lake and the boats traveling to the various docks in the parks.
You have to check into The Contemporary (they do not give you the option of taking your own bags up), so once we got our keys we went on up to check out where we'd be living the next five nights and six days. You can tell how nice it was to get off the road, out of the car, and sit somewhere cool and comfy.
Tomorrow ~ I'll share our first day!
