We loved this hotel with our children ages 1 & 4. The location is wonderful for walking to the Magic Kingdom. The rooms are spacious and very updated. We enjoyed the pool and sandy beach nearby. We had a standard view garden wing room and it only added about a 3 min walk to the tower. We had a view... More

The Contemporary has been around since the 70's. It is a luxury hotel at Disney World. Worth the extra money to stay here? Depend on what you are looking for. If you plan to spend the majority of your time at the Magic Kingdom and you want to be able to walk there...this is a great choice. The rooms are... More

I stayed in this resort when I was young and although we stayed at a different Disney resort hotel on this trip, the contemporary was still a part of our weekend. Riding right through the lobby on the monorail is just a must do for any Disney goer. It's so cool to look down on chef mickeys and get a... More

I had the opportunity to stay at this resort during a previous work trip. This resort can be very crowded because of the location, but the location is truly the upside. Staff was great & rooms were very clean. I would recommend this resort to anyone who has the money to spend for the trade off of location.

The Contemporary tends to have mixed reviews because it offers two different kinds of lodging. I think most people envision staying in the classic main A-frame towers with the mono running through, while others are content to stay in the Garden Wing to save a few bucks. We are fans of the Garden Wing and not just because of the... More

This is our 'go-to' hotel at Disney World. 5 minute walk or monorail to the Magic Kingdom. Or easy frequent buses to all other disney Parks. Fun buffet restaurant. Comfortable rooms. Good Disney service. Convenient coffee shop with amazing cinnamon twists if you get in early. Expensive ... but .... highly recommended.

Our room faced Magic Kingdom. We were able to see the fireworks every night. You can walk to Magic Kingdom but the heat was too intense to talk the mile or so. The tram is conveniently located within the hotel but it goes around the entire Disney World with Magic Kingdom as the last stop; on the flip side, from... More

We had a Theme Park View room on the eighth floor, right near the elevators and it was very nice. The room was quiet, we didn't hear the elevators or the monorail but we did hear the Magic Kingdom fireworks -- we hear those no matter which hotel we stay at -- the difference here is, we could also see...

What a great resort! We stayed at the Contemporary the first week of February on club level. There is a lot of space in the room. We are a family of 4 and our boys each had their own sleeping space with our little guy using the futon bed. He did not want to pull it out into a bed... More

Very convenient to parks. Love being able to walk to Magic Kingdom or take the monorail which is a ride in itself. The rooms are very nice and clean. The lobby was very clean. Check in was a little bit difficult. We switched from another Disney hotel and they could not get the magic bands to transfer. Took about 45... More
