We stayed two nights with a theme park view at the Contemporary Resort. You can't beat the location and if you have a theme park view you can't beat the view. Watching Wishes from the room is much more relaxing then fighting the crowds at the Magic Kingdom. You can even listen to the music on your TV (channel 105... More

Easy walk to Magic Kingdom or quick ride back on the Monorail. Excellent and large rooms (pay up for the view of the Magic Kingdom if it's in your budget) with views of the Castle at night. Don't miss Chef Mickey's for dining with Mickey and his friends. Check out process was fast, check in a little longer but still... More

Unless you like cockroaches and black beetles stay away! We had two rooms in the garden tower and the first night we checked in my mom came screaming into my room because a cockroach ran across her pillow! She contacted the front desk and after 3 phone calls and 2 hours a service man finally arrived and removed roaches from... More

The whole extended family was here for a wedding so loved the place! Our rooms were already booked and paid for so check in was a breeze. Loved the rooms, yes they were not ultra contemporary but big, comfortable and cool. Loved the bathrooms, shallow square sinks, huge comfortable beds, working air conditioning, safes and fridges, big screen TV. Patio... More

My favorite resort in Disney. It is right by Magic Kingdom and than you can take the tram to other multiple parks instead of relying on their busing system which is not as good as the tram. Our suite was spacious and gorgeous. The staff was excellent and brought things to our room that we purchased in the park before... More

Stayed here for 3 days 2 nights. Overall an excellent hotel with really attentive staff. We traveled with a large group and as always there were some issues such as plumbing and strangely enough a snake wandering into room. I do have to say they were very attentive. Nathan the manager was extremely understanding in addressing our needs. We stayed... More

Yes, it's very much a product of its era, but the Contemporary is for the most part well kept and mixes in 21st century sensibilities with the original wood-panels-and-mosaic looks. I stayed in the Garden section, which is kind of a hike from the main building and monorail. As a place to recover from a day of conferences and meetings... More

The Contemporary is the only Disney property hotel that you are able to walk to the front gate of Magic Kingdom from. My daughter & I stayed here in a Garden View Room in the Garden Wing. We had a wonderful view of the riverway that connects Bay Lake to Seven Seas Lagoon. THE PROS: Location! You can't beat the... More

We have stayed at both the Contemporary and the Bay Lake Tower. This review is for travelers with children under 5... First of all, if you have young children, either one of these are hands-down the best Resort location. You do NOT want to be taking "mass transit" with the huddled masses and traveling 20 min - 1 HOUR via... More

I have stayed at different Disney Resorts and I have to say this is the worst experience I have ever had. We decided to stay here because of its location and traveling with 4 kids it was a definite plus. I checked in online thinking that would help speed up the process but once we got here it took us...
