I had stayed at the Contemporary in a theme park view room before but my spouse had not and has always wanted to. So I had a regular theme park view room booked for our 25th anniversary when a Club level room came up on the passholder discounts for about $50 more a night. I decided to splurge and changed...

If my conference weren't in this hotel - I would not have stayed here again! Last year I reviewed this hotel and noted I definitely did not feel the Disney Magic (we had a garden wing room). This year - I requested a room in the main building and it was much better. However, still didn't feel like a deluxe...

While the Contemporary is more retro than contemporary, it's well maintained and from my point of view, it's in best location in the Magic Kingdom resorts area. Not only can you catch the monorail from inside the hotel but you can readily walk to the Magic Kingdom. As I did with a previous stay, I used the advance online check-in...

We have stayed at nearly every resort at WDW. We had always wanted to stay at the Contemporary, but it is really hard to get reservations there unless you book way in advance. We were able to get a room (finally) and were very excited. Unfortunately, we got put in the Garden Wing which is not in the main hotel....

Fantastic views and service. Condos are nicely updated. Pool is smaller than most other resorts, but staff is friendly and makes up for that. Very enjoyable!

I rate this hotel as average. Let me tell you why. In any other setting I would have rated it as very good. It is a good location (in this case, close to the Magic Kingdom). The bathrooms are nicely appointed. The concierge staff was helpful. It's got some interesting architecture and well-kept grounds. But there are some things which...

What can I say - walking distance to the magic kingdom and the monorail goes through the building. Perfect for families with small children that may need to nap in the afternoon and head back to the park early evening. With that said, we are on the go early and stay at the parks late - this is still my...

Traveling with a two year old (who turned three on this "birthday trip") we knew we wanted to be close to Magic Kingdom. We were pleasantly surprised that it's actually a shorter walk to the MK than to ride the monorail!!! Less than 10 minute walk on a beautiful path...That's how close to the gates of MK!!! We felt it...

Longest lines I waited on were at the hotel! Then a concierge who didn't have the number to the pool and who could not cancel a reservation! Rooms may be nice but not cleaned! And I do expect that a premium hotel has working elevators so I don't have to carry my double stroller and luggage! Where was the bellman?...

The lines at the Contemporary were longer than the parks. A concierge who did not have the phone number to the pool deck and couldn't cancel a reservation. Elevators that did not work for the entire 5 day visit!
