Disney's Contemporary Resort is the only one within walking distance to the Magic Kingdom. It is literally right across the street. In addition, the monorail runs right through the middle of the hotel. You can't beat free monorail rides for little boys whenever you need one. The rooms are very nice with comfortable beds. They are some of the largest... More

Our family of five stayed four nights at the Contemporary hotel this June and it was a wonderful experience! The check-in was fast and easy my wife was able to check us in online while on the Disney bus headed to the resort... The staff was very friendly and fast. We stayed on the concierge level which was well worth... More

We've stayed at the Contemporary many times, most often when the room decor was a reflection of Disney and not Business Bland. This time we were celebrating something or other and splurged for a Tower room with a view of the Magic Kingdom for the fireworks. The view was the only thing worth remembering. Check-in was the first sign of... More

We stayed in the 12th floor Club Level this past May. There may be some reviewers who feel this classic hotel is in need of a thorough renovation, and like any hotel upgrades are always helpful, but I believe this hotel has held up quite well since it was THE place to stay at WDW. It's location on the monorail... More

My girlfriend and I are travel agents and like to visit Disney once a year to see what changes have been made and like to stay in a different resort hotel each year. We stayed in Coronado Springs in 2012 (fine, no complaints) and the Yacht Club last year (simply outstanding), so this year we decided on the Contemporary, mainly... More

In the 1980's this hotel was premium service and staff. Today every department staff and service is outsourced to other companies and it shows. I recently stayed here for a convention and not one housekeeper spoke the english language. Room service was awful so don't bother ordering anything. The vending machine was broken on our floor for 5 days. resort... More

The location of this hotel is incredible, you are literally less than a 5 minute walk to the Magic Kingdom. The hotel employees are also great, and more than willing to make your stay an enjoyable experience. The rooms are very clean, decently sized and the beds are comfortable.

First I will tell you the good things. Very close to magic kingdom, most of the staff pleasant. And the room decor is top notch. However that is where it ends. They say 24 hour room service and yet they do if you want to choose 1 of 4 items if they have it. They did not have one item... More

Absolutely fantastic and magical! Would not stay anywhere else. My new favorite. Polynesian used to be my favorite, but it is being ruined. Not sure what these negative reviews from people are about regarding the Contemporary. These must be people that would complain about the way someone handed them a million dollars. My family and I stayed for 7 magical... More

The Contemporary resort is the most convenient resort for a trip to Disney World, with the monorail passing through the lobby. Unfortunately, such convenience comes with a price tag. There are many nice places to stay in Orlando for a fraction of the cost. However, if. like us, the trip is about once every 7 years and only for a... More
