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

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
Terrific weekend at a wonderful hotel. Convenient with free airport shuttle, constant Monorail service and buses to all Disney resorts. Wonderful amenities and great food! Service is outstanding!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Location, location, location"
Great service, nice rooms, best location for magic kingdomGenuine Hotels.com 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
The first night we went to Chefs Mickyes restaurant to have dinner. Front desk was empty no signs no greeter at the front desk so we assumed it was seat yourself. Wow were we wrong, We approached the buffet and looked around before we started to grab a plate to make sure this was the place we wanted to eat at. ambiance was nice so we decided to stay. […] Then we grabbed a plate filled it with food and found a table, and then we ask a server for help with utensils and drinks. That's when we were belittled and embraced by staff. by the end of the conversation they had taken our food away and asked us to leave by the server, not even a manager came out to explain the situation. we were floored by what had just happened people all watched as this went on and again were where embraced and really belittled by this situation, we thought this could not happen here at Disney World. Anyway this is a short description of what happened. I believe this could have been handled in a different manner to say the least but it is what it is. We will NEVER go back to the CONTEMPORARY RESORT because of this. We also will not hold Disney world responsible for the actions of one restaurant. We will continue to go to Disney resorts on our annual Disney vacation. sometimes 2 time a year. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Hotel close to the parks"
We had a very pleasant stay, everybody was friendly and willing to help in all of our needs. Definitely will come back! The only thing I didn't like was that they told us that room service after midnight was available with cold suggestions and when we came back really late form Epcot we called room service and we've been told that only pizza delivery […] was available at that time and we had to go all the way to the front desk to pick it up and our room was really far from it. The next day we found out that there is definitely hotel room service after midnight. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Highly convenient, great customer service."
This is a great place for families--so convenient with monorail service--we never needed a car. The staff were professional and very friendly. We were mistakenly given a room with a king bed instead of two doubles, and it was handled quickly and efficiently--all we had to do was walk to the new room because our magic bands were reassigned with a simple […] phone call. Very pleased--though rooms are expensive, the free and convenient transportation makes up for it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenience is everything."
The location of the hotel is it's best quality. I booked and received one of their Garden view rooms. I didn't really feel like there was anything special about being there. I wonder if being in the actual tower makes you feel the magic a little more. I feel there were more Disney touches in the rooms at the Polynesian Resort.Genuine Expedia guest review
"had a blast."
We had a great time, magic kingdom was to croweded.my six year old daughter wanted to go back to the resort.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My wife always wanted to stay at this resort and it was everything and more that we expected. The cast members, room service, the view, everything was wonderful. She Loved It!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Every person was extremely friendly, they made me"
they made me special food because I can't have gluten we got to check in to our airlines get boarding pass and leave luggageGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful lake view, boys loved the train and pool"
All cast members were very friendly. Hotel VERY convenient as the monorail was fun to ride to Magic Kingdom. during busy times the ride could be 20 minutes but the walk from the hotel was only 8 minutes. We got a room with a lake view which overlooked thepool area and the lake which was beautiful, especially sunrise. Food was good. We have kids with […] allergies so every time we ordered they called a manager or the chef to take our order so we felt very comfortable as they were highly aware of cross contamination issues and related ingredients. Kids (5 and 3) want to go back to visit THE POOL and Disney. LOL. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Would have to say you pay for the location on this"
Stayed here on the weekend of July 28th and prior 22 years ago .. Guessing not much has been updated .. Be sure to stay in the newer tower which connects to main lobby. Our hotel was located so far from main lobby .. Needed to walk outside and across property then an elevator ..the only one elevator that holds two people tops if you have luggage .. […] Very dissapointing .. I would have stayed anywhere but here for the money .. Hotel has no beauty compared to the many located close by and for less money .. Left here after two days and went to universal studios .. A must do ..!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Contemporary at disneyworld"
Five stars. We lived it and can't wait to returnGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Had multiple issues incl dirty sheets not being changed entry bracelets to room taking four times to get them all working and no fridge after we were told there was one and other issues they gave us some credit back on charges but should have been more. DissappointingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"quick access to theme parks via monorail"
Staff very polite and helpful. We loved having the monorail come through our hotel! Pool nice for kids. Plenty of food options: cafeteria style for cereal in a box, and sit-down dining with healthy foods in the Wave restaurant. Also a coffee shop in main lobby. Room pretty and modern, with bathroom having 2 sinks and separate potty room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not much of a view from the hotel room."
I would book a room on my next visit in the Contemporary Tower vs the Gardens just to have more of a view. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. The room was clean and comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Our Wonderful Stay at Disney Contemporary Hotel"
We loved it. The room was well appointed, large and modern. The staff was great. The location cannot be better.Genuine Expedia guest review
Disney magical express is good service. Even though I arrived at airport 3 a.m. because of the flight delay, they transported us to the resort. Note that you need reservation for the service. Access to park is also good. From the station within hotel, you can get to Magic Kingdom in a couple of minutes. Or, buses often come to pick us up and take us […] to any other park in about 30-40 minutes. Hotel itself is not quite new or beautiful, but above average. No bathtub in our room. We would choose Disney Hotel again on next time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Upon our arrival the hospitality kicked in! Every one of the staff members that we came in contact with was so courteous and helpful. There was always someone willing to help us with whatever we needed. It was our first time to Disney World and they made it just that much more magical! We even went out to the marina and rented some sea racers. We had […] a wonderful time!! Our room was very spacious and clean. We could not have asked for more and my whole family was please with the resort! When we return to Disney World this is definitely where we will stay again!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, but check in process was painful!"
Arrived at the hotel at 4:30 pm to check in and we were told that the room was not ready yet and they would text me when it was cleaned. I check back in at 7:00 pm and was again told it should be ready shortly and again told they would send me a text when it was ready. 7:45 pm called again to get checked in and was told that the room was now ready for […] check in, but we never received any text. Prices like this for a room and you cannot get checked in until near 8:00 pm, this is clearly unacceptable! Having final got into the room we decided to move on with our Disney adventure and vowed not to let this dampen our spirits. I called the front desk in the morning to see if we could get a later check out time due to the check in problems and was told that 11:00 am is check out time and that they could not help us beyond that. I think it is terrible to pay that kind of money for a room and not get service that you would expect from a 2 star hotel. Convenience factor was great, but they hold you hostage to their lack of flexiblity. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"great disney hotel"
we enjoyed our stay very much. the room was very spacious & had a nice balcony overlooking the lagoon. the beds were comfortable, it had a daybed as well which made it possible for the kids to have their own bed. would definitely stay here again when visiting disney.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great view and rooms"
Great for Disney World's Magic Kingdom visitors like me!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent. Would of preferred a view where we could see the 4th of July fireworks from our room, but no upgrade was available. Pool was closed down the majority of one day, but the pool at Bayview was available, but due to all guests using one pool caused it to become very crowded. Outside of this, our stay was great, majority of the Staff were very […] friendly and housekeeping was superb!! We all would stay at the Contemporary when we visit Walt Disney World the next time.

"Nice Hotel on the Disney property"
The Contemporary is a nice hotel on the Disney property. It is convenient to all 4 Disney parks through monorail or bus and easy access to other property hotels by boat. Employees are friendly and helpful. If you stay in the garden wing of the hotel be prepared for a long walk to the lobby but a short walk to the pool. Overall enjoyed the stay, would […] stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I was surprised at how dirty a Disney hotel was: room service trays were left in the hallways for days, cafe floor and tables were always a mess (never saw anyone cleaning there), hair in the bathroom sink upon arrival. The valet stand concierge desk was quite inept. We arrived early and left our bags at the desk, when we finally got a room they never […] delivered our bags. I had to call at 11pm(we went to the park not to waste our day) when the bags were finally delivered again after waiting 30 minutes the delivery boy hung around expecting a tip. I gave him 1 dollar hoping he would complain to his boss even after I did. FYI magical express will only take you to the airport if you are checked out of your room. We were not intending on using our back to airport magical express and didn't make a reservation for it. My husband just wanted to use it to go pick up our rental car at the airport, they flat out said no...85 cdollar ab ride to the airport! But the convenience of the monorail surpassed all disappointments at the hotel. Busses at Disney take a huge chunk of time out of your day for travel. The monorail stop in the hotel was convenient and fast. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"overall fantastic place"
great resort, great pool and beach area. food choices were excellent only downfall is needing reservation 180 days out to eat dinner at chef mickeys. 2 of the 3 restaurants require dinner reservations ahead of time. a bit displeased with not knowing this when I booked the room. thought my family would have more options for dinner and was not the case. […] aside from this everything was quite good Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Only way to go"
Great vacation and I believe staying on the monorail line saved us a tremendous amount of time. Next time we go to Disney World we will stay on the monorail line if we can afford it. The walking distance to Magic Kingdom wasn't bad at all and we stayed at the Garden Tower which is the furthest from the park. The rooms were nicer than expected. The arcade […] room at the hotel was fun. The stores were much larger than expected. There were also plenty of dining options at the hotel. I really have no complaints about staying at the Contemporary Resort. If I can afford it I will stay in the main tower next time or the Bay Lake Tower just to be a little closer to the park or monorail. I would definitely recommend the Contemporary Resort if it is within your budget. 15-20 minute walk to Magic Kingdom. 20-30 minute monorail ride to Epcot. 45 minute+ ride on bus to other parks.
