Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort


Full bar, sandwiches, salad, snacks. Bento box meals.


Much like the Top of the World lounge, the Cove Bar at the pool of Bay Lake Tower is technically for hotel guests only. The bartenders won’t demand proof before ordering, but there is a gate around the exterior of the pool area that requires a room key to open. If you find yourself inside the fence and in need of a drink, the Cove Bar is there for you.

Unfortunately, the bar’s location is about the only thing to say about it as it is a wholly unexciting structure that looks more like a takeout window than a bar. The menu is equally unexciting with bits and pieces of the standard bar menu. A handful of food items are found here such as a Caesar salad, club sandwich, and an Asian chicken salad.

The only saving grace for the Cove Bar is that there are a few beach and waterfront spots scattered around its building. Few things are more peaceful than a lounge chair, and adult beverage, and Bay Lake. Even with the nearby views, there is little reason to visit the Cove Bar unless you are already spending time at the Bay Lake Tower pool.
