If you are looking for the most iconic location to stay when visiting Disney World, the Contemporary Hotel Orlando could be just the place you want to settle on. The most notable feature the Disney Contemporary Resort offers that none of the other Disney Resorts have is the fact that the incredible Disney Monorail has a station right inside the main building. That’s right, if you stay at the Contemporary Resort in Orlando Fl, not only do you get to stay in one of the first resorts in Disney World but when you want to travel to Epcot or Magic Kingdom, all you have to do is head down the elevator to the Station in your building. Trust me when I say that your kids will want to stay and watch the trains enter, fill up with guests and head off on their destination time and time again. How can this get old?

Adjoining Room

The Orlando Contemporary Resort offers spacious rooms and suites. Each room will offer refrigerators and some even offer kitchens and can accommodate up to 10 guests. Turndown service is available upon request. The complimentary WiFi makes it extremely convenient for those traveling with laptops. The standard rooms are typical hotel rooms. Although the bathroom sinks are great they are big and don’t leave much counter space. You will find comfortable beds here but the pillows are a little too firm for my taste. One tip would be to upgrade to the Magic Kingdom Balcony simply for the firework views. What a great vacation here at the Contemporary Resort Walt Disney World! Take some time to look at the full information on the Rooms at the Contemporary Hotel.

Disney Contemporary Resort Reviews


Great Views and a Great Location make the Disney Contemporary Resort the place to stay. The kids were thrilled each time the Monorail came through the building and taking the train to the Magic Kingdom was a daily treat. The food is good and the staff takes care of the details.

With the open atrium design and the Monorail running through the building, some guests felt this was a noisy location to stay.
