Of all the Walt Disney World resorts, the most famous is the Contemporary resort. This was one of the first Walt Disney World resort hotels made on Disney property, and the only one with Disney’s monorail train running right through it.
Disney’s Contemporary Resort is in walking distance of the Magic Kingdom and six miles from Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It is also connected to the other parks through a monorail which runs through the interior of the hotel.
On the other side, guests can enjoy the Electrical Water Pageant and Bay Lake. There is nothing better than staying on site for the complete Disney experience. You can clearly see the Magic Kingdom and the late night fireworks from this Walt Disney World resort.
This Walt Disney World resort has a large pool area that is a great place to relax after a long day at the parks. A playground and game arcade are also available. You can rent Hobie cats, pontoon boats, and sailboats and go fishing in bay lake out back.
But this is not all. The Contemporary resort features interactive water fountains, a pool which is shaped like Mickey’s ears, a fitness center offering cardio equipment, a health club, tennis and volleyball courts, miniature golf courses and jogging trails.
There is monorail, boat and shuttle bus service to neighboring resorts and theme parks. If your staying on Disney property the whole time on your vacation you never have to get a rental car while at this Walt Disney World resort.
The convention facility attached to the hotel is nice and comfortable. Disney’s Contemporary Resort offers 90,000 square feet of meeting space, banquet facilities, secretarial services, ballrooms, multilingual staff, event catering, exhibit space and a business center. The service is fantastic and the views are great on both sides of the hotel.
Featuring a 10-story A-frame, Disney’s Contemporary Resort features a smart and sleek style, completely redesigned rooms and the best of modern amenities.
Guest rooms have furnished balconies and are fully equipped with air conditioning, marble countertops, white duvet covers, comfortable beds, kitchen nook, microwave oven, DVD player, large flat-screen TV with Disney programming, wired high-speed Internet access and much more.
There is also in-room childcare, concierge service, newspaper delivery, lighted vanity mirrors, ergonomic chairs and a parlor area with full-size sleeper sofa. Your every need is met at this Walt Disney World resort.
There are several restaurants in the Contemporary Resort’s main building. Come here for dinner at Chef Mickey’s or the California Grill, which offers spectacular views of the Magic Kingdom Park from the 15th floor. If you want to take breakfast, lunch or dinner, go to the Concourse Steakhouse. Your kids will enjoy eating Mickey waffles.
Contemporary Grounds has the best coffee in town; make sure you don’t miss it. Food ’n Fun Center is perfect if you prefer hamburgers and snacks offered via counter service, while Outer Rim serves cocktails and specialty drinks.
The Sand Bar is located alongside the main pool, so you can enjoy a fine drink while relaxing in the sun. I personally think this has the best pool of all the Walt Disney World resorts.
Don’t forget to visit The Fantasia Gift Shop, where you can find lots of nice items to buy. This hotel offers a perfect location for families that are going to spend most of their time visiting Disney.
At night you can watch the fire works from your balcony. The rooms are huge with a great contemporary makeover and spacious bathrooms. The arcade is one of the best on property and you can even win tickets to trade in for prizes!
If your looking for a complete Disney experience, stay at Disney’s Contemporary resort. This Walt Disney World resort has everything you need for your best Disney vacation ever!
