Took the grandkids to Disney for spring break. We rented a VERY expensive suite at the Contemporary. The suite was nice, the service wasn't. We had 4 people staying in a 1-bedroom, 2 bath suite with a sofa bed. When we returned to the room the first night, the sofa bed was not made up. We had to call housekeeping... More

We chose to save a bit of money and get a room facing the lake instead of the theme parks. Turned out to be a so-so decision. It was so cold while we were there we never got to enjoy the balcony very much but the view was lovely. The other issue was the monorail was down from 11am to... More

Had very nice stay at Disney's Contemporary Hotel. Stayed at the Club level, where the great benefit is of continental breakfast in AM, wine and cheese in early evening and nice deserts at late evening. Have special concierge and check on on 12th floor to make the stay special. Loved that you could walk to the Magic Kingdom in 7... More

Five stars from our family of five!! We just returned from a fabulous spring break trip 3/29-4/5. I honestly wanted to stay at the Poly but with all the construction and possible pool closure there we settled for the contemporary. I was pleasantly surprised with this resort. I didn't think it would be "theme-ie" enough, but every aspect actually impressed... More

My husband and I just returned from our honeymoon. We stayed 7 nights at the Contemporary Resort and it was worth every penny. In true Disney fashion, the service was outstanding. Everything from the staff to the little honeymoon gifts we received in our room almost daily was fantastic. The hotel is great - very clean and convenient to all... More

This is our second time on Disney property (first time was Port Orleans Riverside) and our fourth time visiting Disney World. I have to say I was very impressed with the convenience of this resort. Being on the monorail was a life-saver for us. Upon arrival the woman at the front desk let us know that we were upgraded from... More

This is my third time staying on Disney property, having previously stayed at the Grand Floridian and the Wilderness Lodge. This was my least favorite of the three hotels, and I found it to be a bit overpriced for an aging hotel. We stayed in the Garden Wing in the least expensive room. The view was of nothing of interest,... More

I spend 4 days at the Disney Contemporary Resort for a business trip and I have to say it was an overall great stay. The experience was very nice and the customer service was exceptional - true Disney-style. I was a little surprised to find the older type construction to the hotel, however, the rooms were spacious, nice and clean.... More

After staying at two other deluxe resorts on previous visits (Beach Club & Wilderness Lodge) we decided to try The Contemporary. Was a little disappointed. Lacked amenities & "wow" factor that other resorts had. Decor, Room, Pool...all very plain. What they call the spa was an area for appointment only treatments right off the small gym, or really a workout... More

If you want to visit Disney World, but don't want to be beaten over the head with The Mouse, this is a great choice for a hotel. The rooms are tastefully appointed, similar to Marriotts and Hiltons. This may be a bit of a problem for those who want a bit more whimsy in their Disney hotel. The Contemporary is... More
