The facility is top shelf. Competent staff. Immaculate. Premium location.State of the art modern rooms. Priceless view of the Seven Seas Lagoon. Gorgeous balcony. Perfect location....monorail or walking distance to Magic Kingdom. The only downer is that it is more like a luxury high rise, so you lose a little of the Disney charm. The contemporary main building is bustling with Disney activity, plus the monorail goes right through the building itself. It has
gift shops, Chef Mickeys, and generally a fun environment. The Bay Lakes tower @ the Contemporary, however, is very sterile and a bit of a let down for kids, especially after they see the main building at the Contemporary. Also, it is a long haul to the main building to catch the monorail. As far as walking distance to Magic Kingdom.....that part is correct but don't plan on doing that with tired kids or even tired adults after a long day. Close as you can get to MK but keep in mind these facilities are huge. This hotel (really a time share) is everything it promises to be if you can live without the charm that Disney does so well. This hotel is also among the most expensive of the Disney properties. A comperable facility off property would cost about $300 per night. This runs between $500 and $800 per night. Trade off is location.
