I liked the location and facilities. We stayed here growing up so for me is is more about nostalgia.
Bell service and front desk were awful. After 7 hours of waiting on our bags, we just went and got them. Front desk was completely unapologetic and it took the front desk manager to reimburse our valet fee that night (we valeted in the first place to not drag luggage around the resort).
Amazing Hotel with a great view of magic kingdom !
I had a wonderful experience at the Contemporary! I took my daughter and niece for a surprise 8th birthday trip! The front desk sent up 2 Mini Mouse dolls and a special card! That started the trip off great!! I was only there for two nights and couldn't have had a better time! This hotel is way out of my budget but I had to give them the experience of a lifetime! Who needs to pay rent anyway! Lol The monorail was so convenient and if you get there early the line isn't bad at all!! Magic Kingdom is the third stop on the way there and the hotel is the first stop when you leave! This makes it super easy if you want to take a break in the middle of the day! If I could afford it I would stay at this hotel every single time!
The Contemporary Resort is as close as guests can get to Magic Kingdom without actually being in Magic Kingdom. Aside from being close to the Disney Park, this ultra-modern resort is also wonderfully designed for families and young children. The Disney monorail runs through the hotel and kids can meet Disney characters right on site.
Guests looking to go all-in on a Disney experience will find their stay at The Contemporary simply magical. Staying at Disney’s Contemporary is 100-percent about location. Not only are guests just a monorail ride away from Magic Kingdom and Epcot, but they are within easy walking distance to tons of sites and amenities. Retreat to the hotel and discover award-winning dining, white-sand beaches, spectacular views and two dazzling heated pools, one with a 17-foot high waterslide.
Aside from being ultra-convenient to two of the Disney Parks, the Contemporary offers another convenient perk. On the same level as the monorail is the famous Chef Mickey’s restaurant, which hosts character meals with all of Mickey’s traditional crew.
The 1,008 rooms are colorful, crisp, clean, and comfortable, plus include convenient amenities for guests. Some rooms include sofa beds and feature spectacular views of Magic Kingdom and others have a floor-to-ceiling window with a view of Bay Lake. Staying at Disney’s Contemporary isn’t about booking the nicest room; it’s about the magical experiences.
Staying at Disney’s Contemporary will not save guests money but it will put them in one of the most convenient resorts in Disney World.
