Great service, nice and friendly people, food (walk up market) what you would expect and the rooms were clean and nice (updated since my last visit - thank goodness! ). Bathrooms still really do not work for a family of 4 but larger than expected and nice to have toilet in separate area just wish the shower was not a glass door so that multiple people could be getting ready at the same time. Being able to walk to Magic Kingdom was the real benefit. With the new early hours for all at all parks bus service was not great and the real surprise was after a long day at a park waiting over 30 minutes for a bus back to the hotel (3 - 6 buses had come and gone for nearly every other hotels during this window and then to get on and it not be a direct bus - nope had to stop at Ft. Wilderness - really 2 of the top level hotels share a absolutely crammed bus - something was clearly off with dispatch! Clearly the bellman's arrival recommendation of using LYFT to get to the parks was spot on.... the morning wait for early buses was also a disappointment that we avoided after day 1.

Hotel's Favorite
I recently stayed at Disney's Contemporary Resort Garden wing and wanted to leave a review that had information others missed. I stayed on the first floor with a patio in the garden wing, my room faced the "garden" area which consisted of shrubbery manicured grass and sidewalks leading to the pool and dock area. I have stayed in the main tower before but personally, the garden wing was better, peaceful not as noisy and not many people. I also enjoyed the outdoor access, walking outside the sliding doors for a jog every morning was great. There was a family to my left and across the hall from us with children but I never heard them between the shared walls, only in the hallway. They are currently refurbishing the garden wing but you cannot hear it at all, my room was 2 doors down from the blocked hallway being refurbished, never heard anything. I do have to say, the room was pretty standard, pictures from other guests are accurate, nothing special just an average room closely resembling Marriot or Hilton rooms but it was spacious and very clean, no chemical smells. The coffee station has a Keurig, my family stayed on the third floor they had a Keurig as well, it was an older model than mine but still a Keurig. There are several coffee pods - all Joffreys coffee, with coffee mate cream cups, sugar packets, and cups with lids. The walk from my room to the first floor of the Main tower was 3 minutes for me and roughly 5 minutes from my room in the garden wing to the monorail on the 3rd floor. Masks are currently required anywhere inside the hotel and the garden wing hallways and they are sticklers about it. If you bring your personal vehicle or a rental they do charge a parking fee PER DAY, I believe it was $25 per day to park. There are other charges for valet parking and service if you chose to utilize that service. Also, if you move to another Disney Resort from the Contemporary the bell service will transfer you luggage to that hotel for you, but ONLY suitcases nothing else. Overall, the garden wing is a great option, especially if you would rather be away from the noise of the Main tower and people and if pool and dock access is a must for you and your family.

Coasting on its proximity to action, I'm not impressed with this place considering what we're spending. Took a rude cold shower tonight and I'm trying to contact the front desk about it. I've called over 60 times and get nothing but a busy signal. It's like they got your money and you get what you get. Supply and demand... they don't really have to try to take care of you.

I cannot rave enough about Jim and his entire team on the 14th floor! We chose the Club Level for our stay at Disney and it was worth every penny! The staff babysat a stuffed animal of my daughters while we were at the park... and when we arrived back at the hotel there were pictures of all the places Stitch went that day. On Mothers Day we weren't going to get back the room until midnight and there was a nice tray of desserts waiting for us in our suite! Its the little things... and there were so many of them! All the talks with my 7 year old... the fireworks... the advice.. the food... the wine... so many things! WE THANK YOU! We will be back!

We stayed there for 8 nights during spring break 2022. We had a lake view room at club level. The resort is an amazing one stop shop resort which is why we stayed there. I traveled with my husband, 10 year old, 4 year old, and 9 month old. I loved that we could do premium character dining, see amazing views of Magic Kingdom fireworks, eat a fancy dinner, have the kids run around the arcade, window shop with low crowds at their hotel stores, purchase tons of tasty treats normally found on Main Street, and get front of the park access in a short 10 minute walk with a private security screening area which hardly had any line the whole time we were there, ALL IN ONE RESORT! The rooms were spacious and we were comfortable in there, even with the pack-n-play in the middle of the room. It was also nice that at the end of the night we could skip going to the ticket and transportation station and just walk back to our hotel using a private path. For club level: this was our first time staying club level, I never thought it was worth the cost before, until now. Wow! We all loved it! We were in the parks most of the time and still found it worth it. First of, you have AMAZING views of MK from club level, you feel like only a stone throw away. Second, you get treated like a VIP. Your room gets cleaned every day and you get nightly turn downs. You have unlimited access to espressos, which at Disney, coffee is a parents best friend. We don’t drink, but they also have unlimited champagne and wine and beer, if it’s not out you just have to ask. For the kids, they have unlimited PB&J crustables, packaged grapes, and apples, sodas, juices, milk, which are all great to throw in your bag for a day at the park and save some coins. They offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They say it’s only light things, but it definitely was sufficient to get you full. For dinner one night, they had salmon, and some sides, for the kids they had mini corn dogs and potato barrels. We were all happy. It was also nice to come back to the hotel after a long day at the parks to a wonderful line up of desserts. Also the concierge service was amazing. They were always sooo helpful and accommodating, even one day offering to walk my tray of food to my room door so I wouldn’t have to carry it. They can also adjust park reservations and book lightning lines if slots are available. Overall we had amazing time! My husband and I were exhausted but having someone pamper us during our stay made up for it :)

After avoiding the Contemporary for a long time due to poor reviews and staying at many other places on property instead, I finally chose it as I was attending an event at its convention center and was very pleased. I stayed in the main building on the 7th floor and enjoyed every aspect. The room was fresh and modern with great touches reflecting its futuristic status. The bed was comfortable and I had a great view of the Magic Kingdom. The art around the hotel reflect Walt's views of an optimistic future and enhances the mood. The best part was walking outside my room and seeing the monorail come in to the Grand Canyon concourse. That is always an amazing sight but seeing it from above on a room hallway is a different perspective - that alone is a reason to go back. The service was very good although I did feel I had to push for my room to be ready at 3pm which is check in time and when I arrived (part of my planning). The only negative is that I could hear some stomping from above me early in the morning but it was not overly disturbing. An interesting thing happened on my final night when I went to buy a Mickey Mouse ice cream bar at the quick service restaurant - the cashier said "its on Mickey" and I got it for free! maybe the payment system was down but that was delightfully surprising.

We stayed at The Contemporary Resort at Disney World and the Fort Wilderness Lodge. The Contemporary was by far the best. It is within walking distance to the Magic Kingdom and has excellent travel options to the other parks. The housekeeping staff was exceptional. They went above what you expect in housekeeping. The rooms are nice and we had a great view of the fireworks. Management was always available to help out if you had any issues. The valet had a couple of problems but nothing to complain about. The bell station was great at getting us our luggage and loading up our luggage. Everyone was very friendly. Unfortunately I can’t say the same for the Wilderness Lodge.

Review from an 8-year-old: It was the best hotel my family has been to. We love the balcony view from the pool to a little bit of a castle. We love their Muffins! We like seeing the characters as chefs from our walkway to the elevator. I really like the pool with the slide! It was close to the Magic Kingdom and the monorail! We love the service and the renovated room! We love how all of the helpers are so nice. Also we know they try so hard! It was the best resort ever went to! I think we should have paid way more! Thank you! Review from a mom: I think my daughter said it all! We had an amazing stay. You can’t beat walking 10m to the Magic Kingdom, and monorails running through the hotel was convenient and fun for the kids. The 24-hour Café was super convenient. It appears that rooms were just recently renovated, and they were spacious, clean, and all-around welcoming. The only issues we had were that upon check-in, the lobby was being renovated and the employee that checked us in from an iPad did not have a great sense of how to answer our questions. Also, the elevators are pretty slow, especially in the mornings and evenings. Other than that, we had no complaints. I’m a little confused at some of the negative reviews, as a lot of the complaints were things like restaurants requiring reservations and noisiness. Planning a trip to Disney requires a lot of research and detail. If you just show up and expect to be accommodated, you will be disappointed. we are not late night people, and had no issues with noise. Yes, the fireworks and the light shows are loud, but that’s sort of why we are there! Loved everything about our trip. Would definitely return!

I have been to the Contemporary several times since it opened and sadly to say my last and final visit was Christmas 2021. The quality of the hotel, cleanliness and food quality have gone down so dramatically it is not worth the price. I paid $180 for a buffet for 2 children and 1 adult and the food was horrible. We took the monorail to The Floridian to eat for the rest of the week. The room was ok but had left over food in the sofa and trash under the bed. I expect better when paying $380 a night for a room and better hotel services.

Our family of 4 including our 5 year old grandson stayed for 4 nights in March. We had a wonderful stay on the club level. The room was spacious with plenty of drawer storage. We were able to unpack and then store the luggage under the beds. In addition to the 2 queen beds, there is a sofa that will also make out to a bed. We had a small balcony with 2 chairs. The room was very clean. The bathroom was also large with 2 sinks, plenty of counter space and storage under the counter. The toilet is in a separate room with doors. The fan comes on when you sit down(LOL). There is a deep soaking tub with rain shower head and separate handheld. We liked the large dispensers of shampoo,conditioner and body wash. The small individual ones always run out. On the club level, the room was serviced everyday. The concierge was very helpful with dinner reservations and explaining the how the lightning lane reservations worked. We only took advantage of the breakfast and late evening offerings in the lounge as we were in the parks all day. Both offerings had a variety, with champagne in the morning and liqueurs in the evening. I loved the nespresso machine! There is also a machine for cold,hot and bubbly water. We filled large water bottles every morning for the parks. We enjoyed our stay at the Contemporary and would recommend it . For convenience, it is a 10 minute walk to the magic kingdom.
