Just came back from a 6 day trip to WDW and stayed in a tower theme park view at this resort. I must say the view was"WOW" amazing but I agree with previous reviews that it did lack the overall disney feel I experienced in the past when I've stayed at Port Orleans French Quarter. It was clean( which made... More

I was somewhat concerned about this resort after reading so many negative comments but wanted to keep an open mind. I'm really glad I did! We were attending a conference at the Resort Conference Center and came in from the west coast a few days early. We were very happy with the Hotel, staff and the room. When we had... More

Fantastic place to stay but our visit was marred by recurring bug issues. We had to adjoining rooms in the main tower. Wonderfully convenient to the Magic Kingdom via monorail or walking and Epcot via monorail. Nice pool areas though not as nice as some of the newer resorts. Incredible wow factor with the monorails passing through. Staff was excellent.... More

We went all-in for a trip to Disney, and I always wanted to stay at the hotel with a monorail passing through it (boyhood dream). I was a bit concerned by the reviews in the Disney books suggesting we stay elsewhere with little ones, but I have absolutely no regrets. The hotel has two sides - lake view and theme... More

I remember being a kid and riding the Mono-rail from the Disney World parking lot and going through the Contemporary Resort and thinking “someday I want to stay there”. I was recently able to accomplish that dream, unfortunately not a whole lot has changed about the Contemporary in the +20 years since I had that dream. It was “renovated” in... More

My 4th stay in a Disney Deluxe resort in WDW. We had a standard room due to our last minute decision to stay here and couldn't get a deluxe club or suite. We had booked to stay at Reunion Resort but having read some negative reviews we cancelled our stay, hence the last minute booking at Disney. We were checked... More

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
