The service and friendliness at resort is amongst the best at the Disney properties. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. Location is the best of all resorts for the Magic Kingdom. The parks are always kept very clean as well. Here are my concerns: 1) The magic bands are very convenient, but they still have a few bugs to work out 2) The crowds at the park have reached a point where Disney needs to consider restricting admission, finding ways to shorten lines or expand the parks in line with the increased attendance. 3) The food quality at the service restaurants are very good, but the quality at the quick food areas within the resorts and the parks have gone down. 4) The fitness room is poorly designed in the Contemporary. The cardio area has low ceilings above the machines and the weight area is minimal in utility and function (get a fitness expert to design this area better). 5) The rides break down/shut down too frequently. We missed several rides because of extended closure.
We have visited Disney for the last 10 years. The price/value comparison is hitting the point where we are trying to decide if we will ever return. We love the place, but not sure if we are really getting our monies worth at this point versus other vacation options.
