If you are thinking about booking this hotel for a vacation, I advise you to reconsider. I am in bed seriously thinking about cutting our trip two days short because this place is hell at disney. Starting with check in...I checked in early online. I don't know why I wasted the time. When we got here (around 1pm), no room...

My family and I stayed at The Contemporary Resort in Oct. 2014. The location can't be beat. You can walk to the Magic Kingdom in around 15 minutes or take the monorail in about the same time. It was worth it to avoiding spending a ton of time traveling to and from the park. We were upgraded to a MK...

We stayed at the Disney Contemporary Resort from 27-29 October and Disney Polynesian Resort 29 – 30 October. My wife booked two rooms in each hotel for her and I in one room and my son, daughter-in-law and two grandsons in the other. We visited the Magic Kingdom on two days. The experience we had was very poor and our...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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,...

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...
