I hadn't been to Disneyworld in 21 years, so I wanted a property in a good location. We were in the Garden area, which was very quiet and our window had a nice view of a lake. The staff was excellent, the beds were comfortable and the room was spacious. There were just two big problems...the room was very dark... More

I had planned this small mini vacation for myself, my wife and two kids 4 and almost 2. We are Annual Pass Holders and I took advantage of a promotion they had for 35% off rooms from late July through the end of August. I originally reserved a Garden Wing room but after about 4 hours of mulling it over... More

The great advantage is this hotel is it is easy walking distance from the Magic Kingdom as well as being on the monorail. Chef Mickey breakfast is great. BUT... bathroom was stylishly but impractically laid out - oversize shallow sinks that are hard for small children to use, very little counterspace, no clothes hook for use during showering, etc. Also...

Love the rooms here, very 'contemporary'. Our room looked over the bayside and each night we saw an interesting light show in the harbour. This hotel is convenient to get to the other resorts by hoping on the monorail to directly access parks or to get to the main bus terminal or water taxis. Would definitely stay here again.

Just like the fundamental flaw in any Disney World trip, where we think by spending more money we'll find more magic, the Contemporary rakes us over the Mickey coals just enough to make it painful rather than fun. But it's okay, especially if you're on the park side. Room. Tower, park view 9th floor. Our room was really great and... More

After reading some mixed reviews, I did not know how we were going to find our 4 night stay at the contemporary. We reserved 4 rooms in the Garden wing. They were beautiful, comfortable rooms. Ours overlooked the lake..what a wonderful view! Even the light show on the lake was terrific. One of the rooms had to be switched upon... More

I have stayed at numerous Disney properties over the years and while I loved the location and the use of the monorail and the incredible view of the fireworks from our balcony there are draw backs. Check-in was loud and slow. We were never notified our room was ready. There are no stairs to use and the elevators do not... More

One of the higher priced Disney resorts, beautiful interior, not worth the money. Had a much more accommodating experience at the value resorts. I had requested early check-in, which of course is not guaranteed and was reminded that check- in is 3:00 pm. After inquiring every 30 mins for an hour and a half I was told that it might... More
