I stayed here after visiting the US for a friends wedding in one of the other Disney Resorts. The hotel room was clean, had fantastic views of Magic Kingdom (and the fireworks) and all the members of staff were polite and friendly throughout the entire stay. I would highly recommend this hotel for couples and families alike, there is plenty... More

Ok, you must have a picture or very good memory of how this property looks before you read this.... If you stay at the Contemporary, you MUST stay in the tower. Do not even think of staying in a garden room or bay view room. This is where you look at the picture. A grand hotel with the Monorail passing... More

I stayed here in March and stayed in the upper level suites. I recommend this for the a la carte breakfast area which is relaxing/free and great for kids. This is the hotel I always wanted to stay since I was a little kid as monorail went through it. My parents could never afford so I wanted to make sure... More

"Top of the World" used to be the name of the restaurant that is now the California Grill, high atop the Contemporary...a hotel I fell in love with as a child and one that still consider my favorite Disney hotel. I have been lucky enough to stay in all of the deluxe hotels in this MK area, including the GF... More

We recently stayed at the Contemporary Resort while we went to Disney for a family vacation. We had 2 adjoining rooms that were very comfortable and provided everything that we needed. The beds were just right and provided a much needed good night's sleep. We stayed on the Magic Kingdom side so we were able to watch the evening fireworks... More

I have always wanted to stay at the Contemporary and we got the chance for our 33rd anniversary. The resort is the iconic symbol of the Disney line of resort hotels with the monorail running through the middle of the a-frame structure. We arrived on a Friday and were promptly greeted at the door and the front desk. We signed... More

Had a Bay Lake View room. Rooms huge, nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. Great in room facilities like a fridge, reliable Wifi. Nice pool, decent cafe and shops, 10 minute walk to the Magic Kingdom. Very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the service and the rooms. I would definitely return.

The location of this resort is the biggest advantage to this resort. Add to that the huge room size and Disney customer service and you have a gem. Our family of 2 adults and 2 children stayed in one room with a view of the magic kingdom. There was plenty of room for sleeping, playing and eating in the room.... More

Stayed here over thanksgiving and it was absolutely amazing. Had a two bedroom suite with three double balconies that overlooked the kingdom. Club level was amazing and I believe this was the best location and rooms in all of disney. A short walk to the magic kingdom. Watched the amazing fireworks from our balcony every night!

This was an experience unlike any other for my Disney lovin' family!!! This is, by far, THE BEST place to stay for any Magic Kingdom fan or a person wanting to try an amazing Disney hotel. You can walk to it! We booked a garden wing room simply b/c I have always loved that section of the Resort. Our room... More
