Expensive but convenient to Disney.
Only walking distance hotel to the Magic Kingdom. Comfortable, very clean, and friendly staff. You will feel a bit trapped in Disney World since it is far away from all other Orlando attractions. Not convenient to Orlando. But very perfect for Disney attractions. Very very over-priced food and drinks. The extra magic hour for guests is great but get up early or plan to stay late. But all in all the hotel is nice but way too expensive for what you get.

Poor2.0
This was an awful experience. It would be acceptable for a hotel priced at $150-200; maybe, 250, since you're paying for Disney. However, the rooms were around $500 when taxes, fees, parking are added. The carpets were all dirty and stained. There were 10 minute lines to check in and check out (which you have to do, because of the stupid wristwatch key fob). For that price, they should be giving better service. The peep hole glass on the room door just fell out, leaving a big hole in the door. The hotel plan is mostly out and not up, so there are long walks to get to the main lobby. There are many nicer hotels at Disney. Don't waste your money on this one.

For anyone traveling to The Contemporary Resort, I can’t imagine finding anything you don’t like. I enjoyed being able to place my breakfast order the night before and it arrived right on time!! The room was spacious and clean.
