The room was too far from everything and it was not what expected

Once again, we were able to check in to our room @ approx 9:30am! After waking up @ 4am for a 6am flight to Orlando being able to get checked in, settled in & freshen up considerably helped us get ready and make the best of our first day @ the parks! We were also VERY happy when we realized we were upgraded to a park view room! The location can’t be beat.

Love the location. Walked to Magic Kingdom and was inside the park gates in 13 minutes. We stayed in the Garden Wing which is a separate 3 story building, not the main building the monorail goes through. I'm sure it was quieter because of this and it wasn't too far to walk to the main building to eat and for the pool. The room itself was very nice and the beds were comfortable, but the bathroom had issues. There were two LARGE sinks and very little counter space. We used one sink as additional counter space; even housekeeping did this after they cleaned. Also, no locks on the sliding bathroom doors and no bathroom fan. The shower pressure was horrible. Also, there were no signs to indicate where the parking for the garden wing was located. Maybe this is why it wasn't too crowded.

Great room and luckily they were able to put us on the first floor with a patio. They also let us check in hours early.

Great hotel with Tram station that services Magic Kingdom. At times can be noisy when Tram is running.

Second time at this hotel and looking forward of spending more nights there.

The best way to describe our stay at the Contemporary is “Magical”

We had lots of fun and loved the help the hotel provided to get us to the parks. The hotel was nice and clean and had lots of activities to do. The room was amazing and our view was incredible! We will definetely go back.

Great place if you plan to visit the parks, I like the services that it includes, Magucal express, transport to the parks, restaurants and more

Convenient hotel ... but dated decor and bathtub had soap scum in corners.

Contemporary hotel is just the tops and so is the cost...HOWEVER you can still get the same experience in their North or South wings garden rooms. Be sure to ask for a room on the ground floor as the second and third floors do not have balconys. We stayed in the south wing over looking Bay lake. Just a great view and relaxing steps away from the pool and main lobby.

Had a most great trip. Spent morning to after lunch in parks returned to resort to escape midday sun rested in room until early eve then walked to Magic Kingdom for dinner and firework's then ice cream on main st. Shopping as I exited the park, 7 day worked hopper so worth it. I loved this vacation so much. I highly recommend Disney's Contemporary Resort.

Great location. Pool & viewing areas excellent. Nice size room. Great staff. Very clean. The monorail makes the Disney experience very comfortable as the days get hot and long and can travel very fast for a quick break back to your room. I really feel that the food and beverage prices are out of control. If they made the prices more in line with the average restaurant it may prevent people from going outside the resorts to eat. The average meal for a adult can easily run $25-$70 for nothing special.

Easy to check in on-line and we were able to get into our room early to enjoy a full day at the Magic Kingdom. Monorail is very convenient but realize it only goes one way so good home from the park but leave extra time or walk on the way too the MK. Friendly staff, and cafe food was convenient, reasonable and good. Can take to your room for a break from the crowd. Overall great conveniences at Disney prices. (The maximum they could charge and still have you feel like you get decent value) Oh and the pool and water slide were a nice afternoon break for the kids. The hot tub for the adults with sore feet!

We had a room on the first floor of the Garden Wing. It was very nice to be able to walk out the patio door to the pool. The room was large and had tweo queen beds, a good sized sofa and large bathroom. It was spacious for our family of four. The staff is incredibly friendly and goes out of their way to assist with everything. My daughter lost a tooth and visited by Tinkerbell (Tooth Fairies Disney assistant) with special gifts. It was amazing. We visited during Halloween and had lots of activities for the kids. The walk to Magic Kingdom is one of the best parts and was the main purpose for me booking this hotel. The 10 minute walk between the Contemporary and MK beats fighting crowds and taking the monorail to a tram to a car after the fireworks.

Can't beat the location and the view. We treated ourselves to a room here during a trip for our daughter's wedding at the Wedding Pavilion. We love the view from a tower room overlooking Bay Lake. The staff were all very helpful and pleasant.

It was great! learning the way around the monorail was a bit confusing - several other families were getting confused as well. Once you figure it out though its worth it!

I just love Disney hoteles they make you feel the magic Sinces you arrived, we had the new magic band that make everything easier i had with my family the best vacaviones ever

Room and view were perfect. No complaints. Would love to stay here again.
