This is where you want to stay if you want to feel like you're at the core of Disney World. The monorail goes through the main tower and is your gateway to all of the parks. You will also enjoy breakfast with Mickey and his friends, and it's just an overall great experience.
The Contemporary Resort is easily Disney's best hotel. It has a monorail station inside the hotel, which lets guests easily get to Epcot or Magic Kingdom in no time, and it is the closest hotel to Magic Kingdom, so guests can also take a short walk to get to the park. The resort also offers numerous.. activities on Bay Lake that are not offered at other Disney resorts. California Grill also has the best views at Disney World. Chef Mickey's is arguably the greatest place for kids to dine. I would definitely recommend anyone who visits Disney World to stay here.
The Disney's Contemporary Resort is just a wonderful hotel. It was recently renovated and the rooms are specious with a lovely modern style. Our room had a wonderful view of the lake.
It is very convenient that there is an actual train station right inside the hotel which takes you t..o the different places. If you would like to go to the Magic Kingdom, this hotel is actually very close and it's advisable to just to walk the park.
Please note that there is something called "Garden Wing" which is a different set of buildings near the main tower. I think it is worth investing those extra bucks in getting a room at the main tower. The view at the tower is much better and there is more privacy. Although the Garden wing is somewhat remote - you might have a room facing the pool or have people walking near your window if you are at the first floor. Not recommended.
To sum it up, Disney's Contemporary Resort is a wonderful hotel, get a room at the Main tower and prepare to enjoy yourself and one of the most famous hotels in the DisenyWorld resort that is very close to the Magic Kingdom.
