Disney's Contemporary Resort
- What's Included
Literally, it took us 5 minutes to walk from the front desk to the security metal detectors at the front of Magic Kingdom. We can see the park from our room and it looks awesome. At Chef Mickey's we were able to get Gluten Free + Vegan Mickey Waffles made for us! Make sure to tell Donald Duck that he's #1. Otherwise, he might pick up your fork and continue to stab the Mickey Waffles.
Stayed with my family of 5 for six nights. The rooms were spacious and it was great having a mini fridge and microwave (we requested one upon arrival) in our room. The kids loved watching the fireworks from our balcony at night and looking at the castle each morning. The best part though was the location!!! Being able to walk to and from Magic Kingdom in about 15 minutes cannot be beat. Especially on the nights the park is open late and there is an hour long monorail lined qued-up after the fireworks! A few negatives though, apon arrival it was really busy and no staff greeted us, offered to help with bags or directed us where to go to check in (at Disney this is usually not the case). Also, there were some ants over by the coffee maker when we arrived. They came and sprayed for them right away, however the kept re-appearing throughout our stay. Neither was a deal breaker, but for a $6,000 trip I expected a little more.
As the name suggests the decor is contemporary. Not elegant per se, but refined. Found the bed and pillows super comfy, with soft sheets and pillowcases. Vanity kit and toothbrushes in addition to a nicer variety in larger quantity of toiletries was a nice touch over other Disney resorts. Not as homey as villas at wilderness. But being a able to go on balcony and see MK, Seven Seas Lagoon is so much fun. And super view of fireworks with sound on room TV channel. TV really nice size with easy channel line up and guide built in on screen.
This is our second family vacation and time at Disney. We stayed at the Grand Floridian last year 2015 and I loved it so much. I booked the Yacht Club and lost the reservation at the Yacht Club due to my work schedule. My husband wanted to stay at the Contemporary Resort but I had other resorts in mind. When we first arrived, I was still a little salty because I knew nothing about this resorts and I was worried about not getting a really great view. I wasn't a big fan of the color scheme and I really wanted to leave. When we got up to the room, My husband opened the curtains to the patio, and we found the view to be amazing! As the sun started setting, the glow from the resort room lights made the brown and tan color schemed room look amazing and warm. I loved the pocket doors on the bathroom. My husband loved that this resort is within a 5 to 10 minute walking distance from Magic Kingdom. If I had to complain about anything, I'd say they need more elevators. The crowds are big because of the popularity of the resort, but there's stairs that you can take if you are able and don't feel like waiting on an elevator. We didn't have a problem. We were located on the floor. If you're going in October, you may not be able to open the patio doors or sit out on the balcony as often as you'd like because of the midges (mosquito type insects). A few got into our room and were crawling on the beds. The resort manager, Carlos, moved us to Baylake Towers on the 7 seas lagoon side so that we could get some rest (it was 2 am in the morning) and until the next day when they could reassign another room for us, because I couldn't go back to our original room. We were given an offer to stay at Baylake Towers or return to the Contemporary side. I loved Baylake, but we wanted to view fireworks every night on the MK side. The next day, we got a new room and our vacation continued without anymore problems. Thank you to Carlos for being caring and professional.
In the lobby area of the Contemporary is The Wave Restaurant an excellent choice for Breakfast with a Menu to please all. We've eaten either the Buffet or selected from the Menu the last several times we've at the Contemporary or Bay Lake Tower.
