I have stayed at different Disney Resorts and I have to say this is the worst experience I have ever had. We decided to stay here because of its location and traveling with 4 kids it was a definite plus. I checked in online thinking that would help speed up the process but once we got here it took us...

My family and me stayed at the Contemporary Resort last year in March. For most of us, this was our first time at Disney World and our stay at the Contemporary could not have made the experience any more better. When we first arrived at the airport, there was a shuttle, specifically for people who were staying at Disney’s resorts,... More

We've wanted to stay at the Contemporary for years, but always end up at the Dolphin. Now that we have a baby, we wanted to be as close to the Magic Kingdom as possible. It's a 10 minute walk or a quick ride on the monorail, so you're not going to get any closer. We stayed in the garden wing,... More

The Contemporary is quite an expensive hotel, almost 500 US dollars a night for a completely standard room in the "garden wing", which is the cheapest. In 1987 we had paid about 131 dollars for this same accomodation - inflation !!! The hotel is huge, served by the monorail which is a great advantage as you are one stop away... More

Just returned from a trip from Walt Disney World and staying at the Contemporary Hotel. Perfect stay , with no issues. Rooms were clean spacious! Monorail was down a couple days for a few hours at a time, but since you are so close to Magic Kingdom, really no bother! Checked in was seamless. Prior to our stay I checked... More

I took my daughter and her friends to visit The Magic Kingdom for her birthday. We were on a tight schedule so I wanted the convenience of the monorail and also the pools in case we got to hot during the day. My room was ready upon arrival, someone escorted me from my car into the hotel and directed me... More

We have stayed at 4 deluxe Disney resorts, and 2 moderates. Contemporary is our new favorite! You just can't beat walking to Magic Kingdom, and monorailing to Epcot. Great restaurants! We LOVE having dinner at California Grill on top of the Contemporary Resort. The view from up there cannot be beat! Birds soaring right outside the windows, beautiful sunsets and... More

This was our third time to stay at the Contemporary. The previous two times, our room was in the main Contemporary hotel. This time, to save money, we opted to stay in the Garden Wing and we're glad that we did. If you don't know, the Garden Wing is a separate, 3 story building that is connected to the main... More

Disappointed to the max. This year we decided to change it up and stay at the Contemporary resort. Maybe it was nostalgia of the old days when they used to have the biggest game-room and the contemporary was the Hotel to stay at.. Guess what it was a major disappointment. Keep your memories and don't spend the $750.00 a night.... More

I just returned home last night from a 3 night stay at the Contemporary with my six year old niece. I did a lot of research on where to stay for her first Disney trip (I had been when I was a kid) and ultimately decided on the Contemporary because of the location. A lot of the negative reviews about... More
