A video tour of the Disney World Contemporary Resort gives you great information about the Resort and the layout before you visit. Also, be sure to check out the Overview of the Disney Contemporary Resort. Even though the Contemporary Resort was built in 1971, the futuristic design still holds up as a very unique structure today as well. Part of the fun of staying at the Disney Contemporary is the ability to board the Monorail from the Station built into the Resort. As a guest of the Contemporary, you have full access to the Pool, 135-foot water slide and the kids splash park.
