We loved our stay at the Contemporary Resort and we hope to be back there again soon. From the start, we were warmly welcomed and our bags were stored while we spent our first day in the Disney Parks. The app made it very convenient to unlock the door to our room, which was immaculate and beautifully decorated with an "Incredibles" theme that the children loved. The restaurants were delicious and so convenient and of course the monorails and buses whisked us back and forth to the parks. We accidentally left a few clothing items behind and, once again, the hotel made it very easy for us to claim the items and have them returned.

I stayed here as a kid and came back as an adult with my kid. It's been nicely renovated and the staff was lovely and the location cannot be beat. My only real complaint is the difficulty in being able to eat at the hotel restaurants. Like everything at Disney you have to make reservations waaay in advance, so if you like to keep some nights open, you're basically screwed. Couldn't even order take-out. I wish this would change at Disney. It's too much.

This was our first time at the Contemporary Resort at WDW. We have stayed at several other of their resorts. This stay was wonderful!! Easy access to the parks and the Disney Princess Races. Our room was spacious with a spectacular view! Pool area was beautiful and all of the restaurants served delicious food. Very friendly and helpful staff. Can’t wait to return 🤗

I love contemporary, but it has changed over the years. The rooms were very clean and nice and I had a nice lake view. The coffee pot broke the first time we used it but they gave us a nice brand new one. I’ve visited two or three times before in my life. There were some hindrances. 1.coffee shop closes at 1pm, and is hidden in a corner where no one would even know it is there. One of the check-in ladies happen to tell me about it. This is not good because I love to drink a latte around four or 5 o’clock. 2.dining options-you couldn’t get into any restaurant. There were no reservations or get in line available, and I am staying at this hotel- this was not good. Most of the restaurants were way, way over priced. We paid $89 each, plus drinks to eat on the 15th top floor and then watch the fireworks-way over priced and the food portions were very small. Most of the restaurants were not kid or budget friendly at all! There was one self-serve restaurant and another next to it where they eat with Mickey and you could not get into that one because they were booked! Overall, I still love this hotel and the monorail that goes right through it, but I wish they would change the restaurants and people who stay there should be able to get in immediately over people from other resorts or hotels.
