“Location and room size are fabulous ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014 via mobile

The location of this resort is the biggest advantage to this resort. Add to that the huge room size and Disney customer service and you have a gem. Our family of 2 adults and 2 children stayed in one room with a view of the magic kingdom. There was plenty of room for sleeping, playing and eating in the room. With 2 queen beds and a pull out sofa bed, it's the perfect size. The balcony afforded is views of the fireworks display from Magic Kingdom. It is expensive but worth the price!

Stayed here over thanksgiving and it was absolutely amazing. Had a two bedroom suite with three double balconies that overlooked the kingdom. Club level was amazing and I believe this was the best location and rooms in all of disney. A short walk to the magic kingdom. Watched the amazing fireworks from our balcony every night!

This was an experience unlike any other for my Disney lovin' family!!! This is, by far, THE BEST place to stay for any Magic Kingdom fan or a person wanting to try an amazing Disney hotel. You can walk to it! We booked a garden wing room simply b/c I have always loved that section of the Resort. Our room was ready @ arrival & we got a magical upgrade w/ a bay lake view! Why was this a "magical" upgrade you ask? At night there is a water pageant that was directly outside of our room. This was such an amazing treat for my family. We danced & cheered from our room. We now have such wonderful memories that we will always cherish. The rooms are beautiful in person, honestly better than the pictures,[& when does THAT ever happen?] real marble floors, not a speck of dust, luxurious, beautiful rooms! As always, Disney delivers the best quality service & exceeds all expectations. The 5 stars can not measure the quality of this place, it is so much more than just a hotel. The pool is perfection,with a great water slide. The monorail that runs right through the tower is a huge draw. The entire place is architecturally beautiful. We had such a wonderful time here. If I could change anything it would be that we should have stayed longer!! LOVE.LOVE.LOVE. Thank you to everyone @ CR that made our stay so AMAZING. I know it takes lots of hard work to do so & we THANK YOU so kindly!!!

Room Tip: All the rooms are good b/c the resort is not huge, it will just depend on what you are looking for v...

I have been staying at The Contemporary Resort since I was born! It's always magical to leave your room in the morning, jump right on the monorail and get straight to Magic Kingdom. What's even more magical is when your exhausted after a long day in the park, you can beat the crowds and go right on the express monorail for resort guests only! You are home so much faster than the buses and the rooms are so comfy and amazing. The magical Disney touch down to every last detail. Thanks for such great memories!

Room Tip: Stay in the tower where the monorail is…..some of the garden rooms are a very longggggg walk away an...

Excellent for family when visiting Magic Kingdom and Epcot because of the monoraill transportation. Rooms where nice and modern,
I only had one complaint and it was that my room was not properly cleaned when we arrived and housekeeping was in a bad mood when I told her that my room needed more attention. Beside that everything worked ok.

Room Tip: In front or Magic Kingdom. The bay side is more quite.

There is nothing better than stay walking distance from Magic Kingdom! It is a great hotel, with great service! I loved to stay there and i definitely recommend! It doesn't matter if you are at the Garden Wing or in The Tower, the service and room are great, no matter what.

Room Tip: THe Garden Wing is also a great option to stay. Little cheaper but the rooms are exactly the same!

We stayed here for three nights while visiting the Disney parks in the heat of August. We had booked a Garden view and on check in I asked about a view of the Magic Kingdom and as I was in the Disney spirit, I didn't hesitate to pay the extra $136 per night. It was a good decision, as it got us moved up seven floors with a great view of the the lake and park which will stay with us for life. We watched the fireworks from our balcony twice. The room itself was very modern, clean and spacious even with four big suitcases. It is not cheap in fact quite the opposite, even without the room upgrade, but convenient for the Magic Kingdom, but be warned, the monorail sometimes starts after the park opens, so you end up walking. The Polynesian and Grand Floridian have boat services, which are a great way to approach the park.
