My family and I stayed in one of the rooms in the additions next to Bay Lake a couple weeks ago for 5 nights. While it was a very quiet room all 5 nights, and the room was clean, I guess I was just missing the wow factor for staying at a Disney resort for the first time. It was... More

Stayed for two nights in early November. I'd recommend booking as early as possible. 7 months out and the only available rooms were club level (almost $800 per night). We had made up our mind about staying at the Contemporary and the club level was great but indeed expensive. Especially when you consider the rooms are the same. We made... More

Ideal for Disney family trip. Walking distance from magic kingdom. Great service. Excelent restaurants. Activities for kids. Plenty of transportation options (by water, bus or tram). Nice pool and the best: You can see MK Fireworks from a deck in the hotel (with the music).

I really enjoyed staying at the Contemporary. It was incredibly clean; we paid for a view of the Magic Kingdom and the lake (and the view did not disappoint); it was terrific being able to view the fireworks every evening from our room, even when the kids were asleep. I especially liked being able to walk back from the MK... More

My family stayed in room 1405 which is Club Level overlooking the pool area. The rooms were clean, the staff was great, and the club level amenities were fantastic (complimentary breakfast, evening appetizers and beer/wine all right outside your door). The room was quiet and my 2.5 and 1 year olds had no problems napping when taking breaks from the... More

The Contemporary Resort has an addition named the South Garden Wing that is offered at discounted rates for people attending conventions at their Convention Center. The Rates are attractive and the rooms are fantastic compared to most convention sites. They are maintained to the high level found in any Disney Resort. We were surprised to find that in our room,... More

We've stayed at Disney resorts for years and loved them. We decided to try the Contemporary- whew it's a disappointment! Take away the great location and view of the magic kingdom and you're left with an aged property in desperate need of refurbishment. The room was not only in disrepair (leaky shower, clogged drains, scratched furniture, stained ceiling tiles and... More

We visited over a long weekend in October 2014. This was our 5th visit and the 4th deluxe Disney property we have stayed in in the past 7 years with our two children. It meets all my expectations for Disney service and was better than expected based on some reviews I have seen on the Contemporary in recent years. The... More

We were celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary and went to the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival and stayed at the Contemporary Resort. We wanted to stay in the tower, but ended up at the garden units. It was very nice and the place was fantastic. The only set back was the amount of people at the resort. I guess... More

The Contemporary Hotel needs to reread "The Disney Way" regarding customer service. Check in was fast but not thorough. I was told "your room is in here somewhere" . Somewhere consisted of three buildings, and as luck would have it, I was in the end of the third building I looked. The rooms are nice, though worn, however, this is... More
