What started off as one of the worst travel experiences I've ever had, Disney turned around and created a truly magical experience! A very long story made short...we took a very early morning flight from Canada to Florida to make it to a friends wedding (which was being held at a Walt Disney World Resort and we were in the...

Just got back from a 5 night stay at the Contemporary Resort in the Garden Wing section. The hotel is fantastic! If you want all things Disney, this is the place to stay. We loved being so close to the monorail and Chef Mickey's. In my opinion with small children, staying on the monorail is a must. Our room was... More

Love the Contemporary....very clean, comfortable and above all the views of the Magic Kingdom, Cinderella's Castle, nightly fireworks can't be beat. Staff is friendly and very helpful. The only reason I didn't give it an excellent rating was they couldn't get our bands to allow us to charge purchases. When we arrived we received our bands (they couldn't mail them... More

Always stay on Disney's Concierge / Club level resort rooms if you can. The service is great and the club lounges offer so much (breakfast, snacks, cold beer, evening wine and cordials). We just returned from the Contemporary Resort and found the 12th Floor Atrium Club level bathrooms to be difficult for the 4 in my family to use. The... More

I recently spent 5 days at this hotel for a convention. The staff were professional and polite. The beds were comfortable and the room was spacious. The only negative experience I had was when I tried to print out some documents at the business center. I was instructed to email the documents to their email address and that they would... More

I stayed in this hotel 35 years ago and it still looks new! Disney has done an amazing job keeping it current. I also attended a 300 person event over a 3 day period and the hotel did a fabulous job at putting this on. I couldn't believe how good the food was. Hats off to all the staff for... More

Positives: -Clean rooms with comfy beds. The flip-over couch was great- much better than a convertible couch with a real mattress. It made sleeping easy for this family of four with kids that didn't want to share a bed. -Nice bathroom -Monorail convenience -Ease of eating breakfast at Contempo Cafe (especially if you have Disney Dining). Make sure to eat... More

We were so impressed by not only the location of the Contemporary hotel but the beauty and phenomenal service this hotel offers. Having visited Disney for the first time back in 1978 as a child and that hotel was one of only 2 hotels on the property, I didn't have high expectations for the aesthetics and purely booked here for...

Staying in the main building is the Best location in Walt Disney World. Go down the lift and catch the Monorail to Magic Kingdom or Epcot. This is the most convenient hotel of all the Disney Hotels bar none. The rooms are large, sleep 4-5, and are well equipped. It is not cheap, but you will save valuable hours staying... More

We went on a family vacation (all 9 of us) to Walt Disney World in September, 2014. We stayed in 3 rooms at The Contemporary Resort ... LOVED IT... My wife and I had been to WDW many times. However, some of our kids and none of our grand kids had ever been before. We have stayed at the Contemporary... More
