We visited in December 2018 with a group of 8. My husband & I chose a garden room because he doesn't do elevators. They gave the option of a "garden" view or pool. Looking back I would have chosen the pool, as the room we had just overlooked a courtyard. Pool mentioned,

I am so glad you gave this ultra-modern Resort a try! This is one of my favorite places to stay when I want to be close to all of the action. I love being within walking distance to Magic Kingdom Park while also having quick access to the Resort Monorail! There is nothing better than soaking up the sun at one of the pools at this Resort! I always wish pool-time could last forever, but none of the pools at this Resort are available 24 hours per day. Not to worry, though! The Bay Lake Pool typically open until late evening, so you can end your day with a nighttime swim! Thank you for sharing this review! We can’t wait for your next visit! Heather Disney Social Reviews

We decided to stay on the Atrium Club Level and could not have been more pleased with our decision! The view of the Magic Kingdom was spectacular. Service and food were impeccable. I seriously can not find one flaw or let down during our entire stay. The Club Lounge was always

Disney’s Contemporary Resort is a fabulous option, especially if you love Magic Kingdom! I’m so glad you got to experience the dining options and the Club Lounge. Since you mentioned special occasions, have you ever eaten at the California Grill? It’s delicious and the views of Magic Kingdom are spectacular. I definitely recommend it! Overall, it sounds like all your needs were met and I’m so happy to hear the Cast Members were friendly and helpful. Thank you for sharing this review with us and I look forward to hearing about your future visits with us! Kaitlyn Disney Social Reviews

Thank you for sharing your feedback for your recent visit to Disney’s Contemporary Resort. It’s certainly frustrating when your reserved area hasn’t been vacated by the team before you when your meeting should already be in progress. For this and for the challenge with the temperature of water in your room, I’m sincerely sorry. However, I’ll be sure to share your praise for Chris with his Leadership team. I do hope you enjoyed the other aspects of your visit, and that we get the opportunity to welcome you back soon. Adam Disney Social Reviews

Of course you have gorgeous views of the magic kingdom, and you have Disney's customer service but, the rooms are actually really nice. Our room had a towel warmer as well as a glass desk area that held a table top computer that we were able to use. The beds were comfy and

I haven’t been to Disney World in 30 years, and never stayed at a resort here - decided to bring my two children for a long weekend and we stayed at the Contemporary Resort - it has been such an amazing trip! The ability to take the monorail to the parks is a huge advantage. The

From our experience, you do NOT have to show proof that you are staying at The Contemporary. There is a security checkpoint along the walkway which expedited the entrance process to the park.

The security checkpoint is short and easy on the path to MK. The monorail is less convenient because the one heading to MK doesn’t stop at the contemporary and you have to take the one going away from MK the long way around. It’s misleading because Disney advertises the hotel as being on the monorail but they don’t advertise that you really can’t take the monorail to MK without going all of the way around.

They have pizza at the restaurants. Amazing flatbread at Top of the world if you are a DVC member. But i don’t believe you can order pizza and get it delivered to your room.

I can’t speak of beach club, since I am not familiar with it. But the contemporary I would recommend. We had a theme park view. Which we were able to watch the fireworks at magic kingdom and the water parade at night from our balcony. Plus the monorail was right there. The staff is also excellent.
