The #1 value of the Contemporary is the location. You have a great view of the Magic Kingdom, including the fireworks, as well as the 7 sea's lagoon. The rooms are decent but underwhelming for this price point. The most disappointing part of it for me was at the Contempo Cafe. After paying over $3 for a drink, plus several...

Staff at hotel were accommodating and wonderful. Room had Great Lake view and balcony. Room was clean and housekeeping did a great job. Enjoyed the food at the California grill and at Wave. I was attending a convention with a large group. Wish the hotel kept the bar open later than 11pm. Disney does a great job.

Just got back from a 6 night stay at Disney's Contemporary Resort. This was the most expensive hotel I have ever stayed at. The prices for the rooms were astronomical. But this was for my adult daughter's birthday so took the plunge and booked it (apparently you have to book many months/years in advance to get a less expensive room)....

We had an AMAZING time at the Contemporary. We actually stayed in the Garden Wing due to the size of our party. The Hospitality Suite is a hidden gem. It was HUGE!! We had two living room areas, 3 bathrooms, a full kitchen including dishwasher, big dining room table and a full guest room. There was a pull out sofa...

I had heard so many great things about the Contemporary but I was very disappointed. We switched rooms twice because the rooms were dirty (hairs on the bathroom floor). We asked for an upgrade a few times but the staff refused to give us one. We got some extra fast passes instead. I would definitely not stay here again.

I stayed here 3 nights in early Oct with my husband while attending a meeting at their convention center, conveniently attached to the hotel. Oct is a perfect time of year to visit Disney, with great weather and no crowds whatsoever. Our room was on flr 10. It was small with two queen beds, a fridge, coffee maker and a...

We decided to splurge and stay at the Contemporary for our 2.5 day visit to Epcot and Magic Kingdom. We would definitely repeat this choice, as our stay was terrific and the hotel was worth every penny we spent to stay there! We were able to walk to Magic Kingdom, take a quick monorail ride to Epcot and come back...

I just spent 3 nights at the hotel. I have been going since 1973, 2 year after it opened. To me, it's the only place to stay in the parks. I can safely say that after this last stay at Disney. Because of very distressing circumstances, we had to change to this hotel very early one morning from another hotel....
