This is a typical high-end Disney hotel. But is it worth the cost. The rooms with the view of the Magic Kingdom cost the most but is the cost worth it?? How much time do spend at your hotel anyway. Bus service leaves something to be desired - could use a board showing when the buses are coming like at... More

My family and I decided to take a trip to Disney World and stayed at the Contemporary this time due to the renovations at the Polynesian. What a huge mistake!

The last time we stayed in Disney we were at the Port Orleans resort. This was much better. Travel time to the theme parks is considerably less since the monorail stops here. Even on nights when we stayed in Magic Kingdom for magic hours we didn't have to worry about getting back to the hotel since it was just a... More

Just came back from a 6 day trip to WDW and stayed in a tower theme park view at this resort. I must say the view was"WOW" amazing but I agree with previous reviews that it did lack the overall disney feel I experienced in the past when I've stayed at Port Orleans French Quarter. It was clean( which made... More

We stayed here for 7 days and really enjoyed it. It was the perfect location for us as we could walk to Magic Kingdom. The monorail was also very convenient. The room was clean and as expected. It was very expensive and I am not sure it was worth the cost but it was nice. The pool area was great... More

I was somewhat concerned about this resort after reading so many negative comments but wanted to keep an open mind. I'm really glad I did!

Fantastic place to stay but our visit was marred by recurring bug issues. We had to adjoining rooms in the main tower. Wonderfully convenient to the Magic Kingdom via monorail or walking and Epcot via monorail. Nice pool areas though not as nice as some of the newer resorts. Incredible wow factor with the monorails passing through. Staff was excellent.... More

We went all-in for a trip to Disney, and I always wanted to stay at the hotel with a monorail passing through it (boyhood dream). I was a bit concerned by the reviews in the Disney books suggesting we stay elsewhere with little ones, but I have absolutely no regrets. The hotel has two sides - lake view and theme... More

I remember being a kid and riding the Mono-rail from the Disney World parking lot and going through the Contemporary Resort and thinking “someday I want to stay there”.
