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

Loved everything about it!! It was very clean, convenient and fun!! Loved the proximity to Magic Kingdom.Genuine 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

Cool decor, loved the view of the bay and pool and the fact that the mono-rail comes right into the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Most of the staff was great. Found one person at the front desk that was not very accommodating.Genuine 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.

"Overall ok experience and stay"
The pool was right outside of our room but the restaurants and other facilities were far. I wouldn't recommend this place for families who still need to bring a stroller.....unless if you paid for a room right inside the hotel where it is directly above the facilities. On our 2nd night the monorails broke down and the only other way to travel was by […] the Disney buses.......having 2 little ones going up and down the elevators was just too tiring. So we decided to stay behind which caused us to waste one evening/night of fun. On our entire stay the Disney bus station was relocated to another area because of construction. It was hot and the hotel only provided a little amount of shade......at least they passed out complimentary dasani water while the passengers waited There was construction going on two rooms down from us which was kind of annoying because there was really bad paint smell in the hall way Although we were far from the man facilities and restaurants, we did have a great view of the lake and a close up of the electric water parade at night.

The room was very nice and all staff, except those that work at the coffee shop in the lobby were very friendly and courteous. We had room service once and that was very nice The food wasn't the best or the cheapest but there was a lot of food and the service was good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A Magical Experience at The Contempoary Hotel"
The Contempory hotel is special. Had a really good time staying at the original monorail hotel. It was amazing to walk out of the room and be in the middle of major transportation to everything Disney. If you want breakfast, just head downstairs and grab some Mickey pancakes. If you want Tonga Toast, which I highly recommend, just hope on the monorail […] and make one stop to the Polynesian, you can even bring it back to your room if you want. The Contemporary has two really good shops and many restaurants to choose from. Beware the California Grill is closed for refurb. I was so bummed it was but on with progress. The Contempory is very entertaining just to walk around. The mosiac art design by Mary Blair is definitely worth seeing. Our room at the hotel was awesome. Clean, spacious and well planned, and that was a long long time ago. The modernization of the hotel has been done nicely, beds, bathrooms and other areas were designed really well and promote a high level of comfort. It's definitely not the cheapest, but The Contempory is well worth the money. Views of the Magic Kingdom, the bay and pretty much everything make this hotel special. We really enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the fireworks at MK. I would definitely recommend The Contempory Resort Hotel for a very special Disney experience. It's worth it! A special shout out to Rafael de Jesus Riveria for his overwhelming kindness and generosity. Thank you Rafael!! Amy Georgia Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Disney Vacation"
The hotel was very nice and the room was very comfortable. However, there were people in the pool after midnight every night and it was very noisy. Our room faced the pool. The people in the room above ours were very noisy also. We did not get very much sleep. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The workers in the Contempo Cafe were very rude but the […] staff that cleaned the tables in the Contempo Cafe were very friendly. There is a lot of walking involved in riding the monorail. It is easier to take the walking trail to the Magic Kingdom. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Pleasant within Disney."
Hotel was nice perfect location to MK & Epcot, but the wave restaurant was horrible, bad food and service which was very surprising. Pool and slide great for kids as well as chef mickey's. Did not have to use the car. Could find much better hotels for price and activities if you don't mind driving and parking everyday.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Disappointing hotel in Disney"
We request through expedia a king size bed because we were in our honeymoon. When we arrived nobody told us that our room had a double bed, we realized it when we entered the room. When we asked in the front desk, they explain to us that they don't sell those type of rooms, but they will change us three days after the arrival, but we still wondering […] why can we request it in expedia. Also, when we change rooms, the housekeepers never pass through our room to leave the chocolates and when the hotel made the change of the keys we started to have problems to enter in every park and to pay with the card. Finally, when we received our check out bill, we realized that they were charging $600 extra by mistake. The only good thing was that when we had a medical problem the stuff was very kind and helpfull, specially Dave and Alfonso, the Guest Manager. They take care of everything, and help us with the transportation, the first aid, etc. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel has a perfect location. The monorail is the best way to get in and out of the magic kingdom and Epcot so it couldn't be any easier. There are elevators and ramps to make everything accessible. The pool is great! Perhaps because it is such a large hotel the staff is not super helpful. I tried to call the front desk twice with no answer. I tried […] to call housekeeping twice with no answer. The dining options were not plentiful since the California grill was under construction and chef mickeys requires advance reservations. The rooms were spacious, renovated and clean. Great for families. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location, Convenient and Bed is Comfy!!"
If you are thinking of booking this hotel, you are booking it MOSTLY for the convenience of the monorail that goes right to the hotel. That is the best thing about the hotel. Especially after a long day at the park, it's so convenient to just hop on the monorail and be at your hotel. Fabulous. The people were nice, but not overly friendly like I have […] found in other Disney resorts. Our room was nice, we had the view of the Magic Kingdom, and we saw the fire works from our balcony. The bed was super comfy!! The bathroom was nice too but you can tell the hotel is old, they should invest a little more in updating the bathrooms, mostly the shower. The A/C was loud, my husband had to hit it a few times to make the noise go away, it was fine after that. When you think of how much you spend on this hotel a night, you shouldn't have to be banging anything to make it quiet. I would never stay at the Contemporary again. I don't think it was worth the money, BUT it was a good first time experience. Definitely clean and comfortable, but not worth the money in my opinion. You are paying for the convenience!!!! I can't say it enough. :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect weekend at Disney"
Staying on the 12th floor was fabulous. We could see the castle and fire work from Disney. We are season pass holders and enjoyed our stay so much. Looking forward to doing it again soon.Genuine Expedia guest review
We got the Magic Kingdom view and it was Magical and Beautiful. Watching the fireworks from your balcony is perfect! You defiantly pay for the view. The rooms are updated but not cleaned very well. Glass doors in bathroom were dirty and old tooth paste was under the sink wall. An old clothing tag was also under the bathroom sink. Tub was slow draining, […] very annoying when you took a shower. The sinks were almost clogged and filled up quickly. the Patio doors were very hard to shut. Having the monorail connected to the Hotel was very convenient and easy. We were on the 7th floor and that is two up from the monorail and not sure if the noise was from that, but every morning I was woke up by strange noises. The staff is very friendly and helpful! The pool is nice but nothing special. Nice beach sand by the lake front. We will check out the other hotels next time we come to Disney... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"i always wanted to stay at the contemporary-..why?"
I was very unhappy with my experience. The room was as far away as could be - at the very end of the complex, the price was ridiculous, it was cold and austere and the tub needed refinishing and the room was laid out badly. The toilet was seperate from the tub but one couldnt be taking a shower and another using the facilities.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Place to Stay"
convenant location! The Contempary has the best staff of any hotel I've stayed at. They made sure all our request were taken care of from the time we checked in to when we checked out. The hotel is older but is kept up nicely. Taking the monorail is so easy from here since it stops inside this building. At the pool plenty of life guards and very clean. […] Plenty of choices for eating. We could watch the fireworks at Magic Kingdom from our balcony. We have stayed here before and will stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel close to Magic Kingdom"
Great location. We had a Magic Kingdom view room and were able to watch fireworks from the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice, especially if you are going to magic kingdom. You can walk there in 10min or less and then zip back for a nap or whatever on the monorail (or walk back). One thing to note is that the monorail only goes one way, so if you get on the monorail going to MK, it will be 4th stop, but on the way back it is the first. Only major issue was our bathtub […] in the room was pretty rought (clean but very chipped away). The other thing we didn't care for too much was that the rooms are detached from the main building so you have to walk a bit to get to your room then back out. Not too big an issue, but with kids and luggage...etc it can add up over time. Very nice pool and sandy area for the kidos to play. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Had a great stay at Contemporary last week. Staff was helpful from the time we pulled up to valet, to the time we left. Front desk staff got us checked in quickly, helped keep the kids occupied with stickers, pins, TV, etc. We were able to buy tickets right at the front desk which saved us a trip to the ticket booth, and our bags were waiting for us […] in our room when we got back from the park. Pool was really good! Activities every hour for the kids, water slide was fun (kids and adults alike!), and very clean. The only downside to the stay was the construction all night long right out front of our room. We could hear engines and backup alarms of the equipment through the night.

""great location, needs some work""
this is the "low end" for the upscale disney resorts and it suffers from a lack of a real "theme"...it doesn't have the charm or comfort of the other resorts on the lake or even near epcot...they really should make the conference center floor a cozy place where people could sit read a newspaper drink coffee etc...the other BIG thing they should change […] are the uniforms of the folks at the front desk!! OMG!! they look like they got their suits at a thrift shop! not only are they an AWFUL color but they are a cheap fabric and the fit is awful!! they need to get their costume designers on that bc they are the first peeps you meet!! i was also SHOCKED by how many poorly trained and "not the brightest bulb in the box" staff people there were!?! standing around talking to each other ignoring us, etc this was true even in the park with the "sweepers", greeters, etc! don't EVER remember that kind of behavior and i have been there over a dozen times!!

We were disappointed in the size of the room for four people. We have stayed at Marriott Hotels and Hyatt Hotels that have a sitting room with the bedroom area for four persons. Both the Marriott and Hyatt were half the price. Of course, I know because it is a Disney Resort the hotels are more expensive. But for the price the space was quite small and […] we had to call for more towels (two hand towels for four people) and the maid did not leave any Kleenex when the box was empty. I expected more from a Disney property. In my opinion, the pool could also have been better maintained. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Service - a Magical Stay!"
This hotel was lovely - wonderful for spring break. It was not crowded at all. The pool was nice - there are two. The staff was amazing. We were upgraded to a suite "just to make our stay more magical". We ended up staying an extra night. It was a 10 minute walk to the Magic Kingdom which was great in the evening after the fireworks when the wait for […] the monorail was very long. We also watched the fireworks from our room one evening - so nice with a young child. I plan on staying here again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
