This year we were able to stay at a Deluxe hotel. We chose the Contempoary. It's a very nice hotel; rooms are clean and very nice. We stayed in the Garden Wing, as staying in the tower is VERY expensive. The walk from the Garden Wing to the tower is just one minute; and, the walkway is covered, so if... More

I'll get the bad part out of the way. The room seemed clean, the dresser and carpet were good. But while figuring out why the floor lamp didn't work (not plugged into the switched outlet), I found the lampshade full of cobwebs. I also had to figure out how to set the correct time on the radio/alarm clock that was... More

We stayed in the newer building which has condos with full kitchens. Our place was very nice and the room service was great. Staff ultra friendly. Cool pool with waterslide and access to the pools behind the original building too. If you are going to stay here and plan to cook get the groceries on the way in the store... More

We stayed at the Contemporary from August 18-23, 2014. There were seven of us in two rooms (4 adults and three children). We booked rooms in the Garden Wing and actually had first floor rooms. Having read many reviews, I was cautiously optimistic. We had a lovely stay. The rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable. In my family's room we... More

One of the first resorts on Disney World Property! How could you not want to stay here? Monorail goes through the resort and walking distance to the Magic Kingdom! Fabulous water taxis, monorail and buses and a fabulous walk to the MK ... what a great way to start your Disney day! Great views of the MK, Chef Mickey's for... More

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
