We had a great stay at Bay Lake. Yes, it's a bit light on theming, but it has a great location and the accommodations are spacious and nice. We highly recommend it if the Magic Kingdom is a priority for you. We were able to squeeze in a few extra trips and to stay longer/later because of the location. If you are going to Disney for the first time with young ones, we recommend scheduling a dinner on your day of arrival at Chef Mickey's. Your kids will meet many of the core characters, which is a great welcome to Disney. Any lack of Disney theming at the hotel is most certainly forgotten. Pictures and autographs with Mickey gets everyone in the Disney mood.
A few hints - use bell services to make your stay a breeze. Send your stuff down via UPS, especially if you would be checking it on an airline for a fee. if you need a stroller, rent one from one of the 3rd party rental companies and have it waiting for you at check in. Also have groceries waiting for you through Garden Grocer. We did all of these things and traveled super light. When we checked in, they brought up all of our clothing we had sent, some basic groceries we had ordered, and a great City MIni stroller we had rented.
