This is one of the original Disney hotels. Remains very nice with the proximity to Magic Kingdom and the fireworks show. The monorail is fantastic as are all of the activities available at the property. Must do: California Grill --- exceptional! The wine list is on par with 5 star restaurants and the prices of the wines are very reasonable. The new […] menu maintains the restaurant's high standards. Reserve ahead of time so that you can dine during the fireworks show. If not, you can dine at the bar/lounge without a reservation though that option is better suited for a party of two instead of a family. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Food service convenience were excellent"
Wonderful! All aspects of the hotel were excellentGenuine Expedia guest review
"A great location"
On the Monorail, with a great family pool. Concierge was friendly and very good to assist us. We especially enjoyed our breakfasts there daily at The Wave.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Monorail Under Repair"
The main reason we paid the premium price was to stay on the monorail line---the monorail was shut down from 11:30 until 7pm two of the 4 days we were there---it is walkable from the hotel to the magic kingdom but with a 3 year old and no stroller it was not ideal---there are buses that shuttle you but long waits and large crowds. Food at California […] Grill was overpriced and overrated. Chef Mickey's is well worth the experience although it is pricey...but we loved the experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Comfy hotel close to the action"
We stayed at Contemporary because we were only visiting Disney for a long weekend and wanted easy access to the parks. Being able to walk to Magic Kingdom was terrific. The rooms were very nice and comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice family vacation spot"
Great for families. Pool was fun and lifeguards are like babysitters. On point! Room service was prompt and food was excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Location for the Parks Family Friendly"
Although the Contemporary Resort looks like an adult resort it is extremely family friendly. It's the best location for the parks; walking distance to the Magic Kingdom, Monorail ride to Epcot, and all the convenience of the other Disney Resorts with easy access transportation services. The staff is extremely friendly and will do just about anything […] to make sure you have a fantastic stay. They go above and beyond, which is what you would expect from a Disney Resort. The Contempo Cafe (if you don't feel like a full sit down meal) was fast & efficient with healthy & delicious options. So even if you just need something quick to pick up and go you aren't missing out on any food service. They also have a store where you can go and buy just about anything right on site. Basically- we ALWAYS stay at a Disney resort for the ease and convenience during our trips. It's worth the extra money! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was a disappointment - 11am-7pm monorail down until March!!!! They did not tell us that when booked the hotel. Service was poor they left room service trays out in the hallways for like 24 hours in the garden wing!!!! A cup of cigarettes outside the main hotel in the back sat there for four days never cleaned the entire time we were there....overall […] I was expecting a lot more out if this "upscale" resort. Btw the service in California grill was terrible and the food was so over-salted for an upscale restaurant. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Our stay at The Contemporary Resort was amazing. The staff was courteous and very helpful. The room was clean and modern. Location is why we booked since so close to Magic Kingdom. The food at the quick service Contempo Cafe was decent and reasonably priced. Highly recommend this resort.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The whole reason I booked a room at this particular hotel is the ease and convience of the monorail system getting to and from the Magic Kingdom. The monorail was out of order from 11am - 7pm each day (peak hours) and the bus system provided to makeup for the monorail being out of service was pathetic. The marquis on the bus never said te buses were […] going to the magic Kingdom and we waited over 45 minutes for a bus on one day and had to walk another with 2 small children. This is unacceptable! I could have stayed at a hotel 1/2 the price and had a water taxi take us to and from with no trouble. I DID NOT GET WHAT I PAID FOR!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"View Of Disney’s Castle with Fireworks"
The hotel was very close to the Magic Kingdom. We walked the first day and it took less than 15 minutes. There are gift shops in the hotel that carry the same as the park, so you don’t have to carry around bags. Just get your souvenirs at the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Where the dream start to come true."
Awesome experience!! I'm 37 traveling with my husband. Stunning view to the lake, excelent amenities. Complementary airport transfer, easy to acess the parks. Wounderful monorail crossing the resort! We had every morning breakfast buffet at Wave Restaurant and it was wounderfull and very complete!!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not worth the money"
Spent 3 nights in the Garden View section. Long walk to the main building where the monorail, help and eating is. There's nothing special about the room other than a throw pillow with Mickey Mouse's face on it. Everything was clean, but I expect that in any room I stay in. For the price, you should get more. The only reason to stay there is to be on […] the monorail line which takes you to Magic Kingdom and Epcot ten times quicker than the bus service. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We had never stayed at the Contemporary Resort and found a great price with Hotels.com. Spur of the moment decision to go to Disney World. Loved the location, close to the Magic Kingdom. Staff were very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close enough to walk"
Great location and we were able to get fast passes right at the hotel. The staff could have done a better job with their customer relations and given us information that would have made our stay even better but overall we had a great experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Park view worth the expense. Plenty of room for three adults, 7 year-old, and 5 year-old. Room included a fridge and a balcony. Good food in the quick-dining location. Love being on the tram!Genuine Expedia guest review
"room was less than expected, sink too low;"
disappointing- will not come back. bad shower head, low sink-splashing all over place- soft pillows.Genuine Expedia guest review
The bathroom was the worst I have ever seen! A lot of wasted space, no place to put anything, we used the extra sink to put our cosmetic bags.. Sinks were low, hard to bend over and I am only 5' 2" my son-in-law is 6'.No place to hang the towel , no place to hang or put children's pajamas after a bath. Tile floors were slippery. We would never stay […] there again, for $469 @ night not worth being close, as other hotels are closer, too. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Dream Come True"
We've stayed at many of the Disney properties over the year but this was AMAZING! From the moment we walked in it was 5 Star all the way. We checked in early because of a breakfast reservation and our room was ready, didn't expect that since it was only 9am. Fantastic Staff! Every interaction was helpful and friendly. Comfortable, clean, close to everything. […] Best time ever and my whole family said they would love to stay here again. It was more expensive but worth every penny. Thank You Disney we have great memories! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good but not great"
My family has been going to Disney for many years and had always wanted to stay at theContemporary. After all of the build up to our family vacation we came away very dissappointed. Although the location is ideal, the accomodations were not up to par with other high end hotels that we have stayed in. The lack of service and how dated the hotel is also […] contributed to a very unDisney like experience. I would not recommend this hotel based off of our recent stay.

"Christmas at Disney World"
We had a wonderful three-night, four-day stay at the Disney Contemporary Resort! Being on the monorail and a short walk to the Magic Kingdom was great! The monorail runs right through the hotel lobby....how cool is that!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"So Close to Magic Kingdom"
Can't beat the location. We can walk easily to Magic Kingdom.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Less than impressed"
Ceilings were low. Tile was dangerously slippery. This is the first Disney resort that I would not return to. So not worth the money.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Most Amazing Experience!"
Thank you to the Contemporary for an unbelievable stay. The staff truly made it amazing (Dorothy, Joe, and Kathy). If you are able to stay at this property it would be one of my top choices at DW.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, nice, comfie, convenient"
We stayed at the Contemporary for 5 nights on a whirlwind trip to Disney. The room was so nice, the view was pretty, and it was very luxurious. We loved the convenience of the monorail that took us to and from the parks, as well as the bus service that took us to Hollywood Studios. The hotel was quiet, as well... When we arrived, it was very late. We […] have 2 small children who were sleeping and woke as we were checking in. When one of the workers heard them crying (meanwhile, it was passed midnight), she appeared at the desk with two tinkerbell balloons that made our kids smile instantly. They pay attention to you and go above and beyond to make sure you are happy and smiling. It's really all about the little things!! Surely, this is a great place to stay, and the little bit more in price was well worth it! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I've always wanted to stay at the contemporary but was never willing to spend the money. So I finally do and imagine the disappointment when I check in and find that my room is not in the iconic tower the monorail runs through but in a building next door.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
In the refridgerator of our room, the remains of the previous guest such as opened cans of soda and bottles of water were still there. Other than that, the room was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
The service we received from EVERYBODY working at The Contemporary was phenomenal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We did a 3 night mother/daughter trip to Disney for Halloween and stayed at the Contemporary Resort for quick access to the Magic Kingdom. We had a tower/magic kingdom view and enjoyed the fireworks from our balcony on the first night we arrived. The monorail ride to Epcot was also very convenient. Bus rides to other parks take quite long as you have […] to stop by the Poly and Grand Floridian to pick up other guests as they share the same bus route. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel , well kept for it age."
Very expensive to stay at this hotel , considering that it is older. No free breakfast or coffee. Very clean and the staff is excellant and helpful. All in all a great place to stay but overpriced , when places less than a mile away are 1/2 the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
Enjoyed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Loved being there with fun locations so close."
Great trip and nice hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Garden Wing! Beautiful view of the lake."
Overall, wonderfu!. Staff can't be beat. Would bend over backwards to help you. So convenient to the Magic Kingdom. Buffet breakfast at Waves was very, very nice. Lovely assortment. Great hotel for those who prefer a more "grown up" place to stay...not overrun with children. Only negative and a small one at that.....bathroom could have been a bit more […] "spit and polished". Some spots on the bathroom floor and spots on the wood behind the towel bars and both doors. Could only really see them from an angle but it would be nice if a more thorough cleaning of those areas could be done every month or so to ensure they are caught. Would I stay there again? Oh yes...no hesitation! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel close to magic kingdom"
Only thing wrong is tower is a little loud. And not from the monorail or chef mickeys but from the work crews out front all night longGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was excellent, the staff outstanding, The monorail was the only disappointment broke every time we wanted to use it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great comfort and location"
We had a great time at this hotel. It was clean and comfortable. Very convenient to monorail and the Magic Kingdom. Staff were excellent, friendly and very helpful. We really enjoyed the convenience of the armbands which allowed us to open our rooms and charge even in the Magic Kingdom. Our only issue were the bugs outdoors by the pool, entryway and […] eating area. Over all we would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Stayed in the Garden Villas section. Rooms were large and well maintained. My only complaint was that the hallway common areas were not well maintained nor cleaned as well on a daily basis.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great time! Wonderful hotel."
We were a party of 9, with children and grandchildren. We had 3 contiguous rooms on the 18th floor. Great view, very comfortable rooms.Genuine Expedia guest review
"I liked the hotel."
Good I found that it was easy to get where you want to go.Genuine Expedia guest review
Staying on property is certaintly convenient. However, we had a room on the 5th floor directly above Chef mickeys and the noise was terrible starting about 7:00 am until about 10:30 pm. The express cafe was extremely unorganized and took on average about 15 min to receive a simple kids meal. The pool and life guards were great and the hotel staff was […] exceptional. a short 5 min walk to the main entrance to the Magic Kingdom made it all worth it!! I will stay here again but next time I will request a room on the other side of Chef Mickeys. One more thing, the room wasn't the cleanest but it also wasnt the worst I've seen. I always bring Lysol or clorox wipes and clean all surfaces, bath, toilet etc. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Love It!!! Definitely will came back"
Wonderful hospitality. When you first enter in the hotel there is a very pleasant scent that makes you feel welcome and happy. I was even happier when I learned at the front desk that my room had been upgraded to the Park View.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cool Hotel and great view."
Very cool hotel and location. The refigerator didn't work in my room. It would get cool, but not cold. Other than this, everything was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Got way more than expected"
upon arrival we were greeted by the hotel manager and 2 additional staff. We were then informed that we were selected as family of the day and our reservation was upgraded to the club level with concierge level service for our entire vacation. It was quite a nice treat. The staff was fantastic.Genuine Expedia guest review

"on the monorail"
Amazing! Minutes to the Magic Kingdom or Epcot! Can watch the Magic Kingdom's fireworks from the front of the hotel. Spend the day at the parks, return after dinner, and relax in the two beautiful pools. Watch the fireworks right in front. Don't need to sit on the ground on Main Street for an hour waiting for the fireworks to begin, or partake in the […] mad dash to the monorail afterwards. Have been to Disney before, but this was the first time at the Contemporary. Beautiful hotel, great customer service, Chef Mickey's, what more needs to be said. Would never stay anywhere else. Sensational! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
