What we love

  • Spectacular views of Magic Kingdom® Park, Bay Lake and the Seven Seas Lagoon
  • One of the most convenient hotels on property
  • Walking path to Magic Kingdom® Park, the quickest way to get there (10-minute walk); monorail access to Epcot®
  • Monorail runs directly through the hotel on the 4th floor Grand Canyon Concourse
  • Some of the largest standard rooms on property; most can sleep up to five with a day bed
  • Great shopping selections in the fourth floor Tower stores
  • Character dining with Mickey and the gang at Chef Mickey's
  • Multiple table-service dining options, including one of the best restaurants on property at California Grill
  • Watching the fireworks from park view rooms and the observation deck at California Grill
  • On-site tennis and volleyball courts

Keep in Mind

  • Hotel charges $24 per night (sales tax included) for overnight self-parking
  • Hotel charges $33 per night (sales tax included) for valet parking
  • Minimalist theming doesn't feel very "Disneyish"
  • Among the most expensive Deluxe Resort Hotels on property
  • Theme Park View includes the parking lot
  • Garden Wing rooms are the least expensive, but they are further away from the Tower, restaurants and parking lot
  • Can be noisy on concourse level due to monorail traffic
  • Pool is further from the hotel than other properties and doesn't have any discernible theming
  • On-site convention center brings in more business travelers
  • No children's activity center on-site; parents can drop off the tadpoles at the nearby Lilo's Playhouse at the Polynesian for a night out
  • With the hotel layout, it can be confusing to remember where everything is: the lobby and check in and The Wave of American Flavors is on the first floor, check-in for California Grill is on the second floor, and the shops and other restaurants are on the fourth floor

Notable Facts

  • Disney's Contemporary Resort shares the distinction of being the first Disney hotel to open (along with Disney's Polynesian Village Resort) on Oct. 1, 1971
  • The award-winning California Grill underwent an extensive refurbishment in 2013, adding a sleek design and lighting, onstage kitchen, sushi bar and more than 250 wine selections
  • President Nixon's famous "I Am Not a Crook" speech was delivered in a ballroom at the Contemporary on Nov. 17, 1973

Frog Family Tips

  • For the shortest transport time, walk to Magic Kingdom® Park, but take the monorail back to the hotel
  • For transport to Epcot®, take the Monorail to Transportation and Ticket Center and then transfer to the Epcot® line
  • Consider upgrading to a Theme Park View; request a higher floor for a better view of Wishes Nighttime Spectacular and less potential noise from foot traffic
  • If you're watching Wishes Nighttime Spectacular, turn to channel 20 to hear the show
  • If you're dining at California Grill on the 15th floor of the Tower, watch Wishes Nighttime Spectacular show from the roof viewing area; earlier diners can show their receipt and come back up for the show

Best For

  • Families who appreciate modern design (that doesn't scream Disney), being next to Magic Kingdom® Park and on the monorail, plenty of amenities, including casual and upscale dining, and adults who are looking for a more mature Disney resort

    Staying on-site at an Official Walt Disney World® Hotel gives you several great complimentary benefits, including free transportation and more. You'll be able to make FastPass+ reservations 60-days advance of your check-in, whereas those staying off-site can make reservations up to 30 days in advance of each day of their theme park visit. FastPass+ allows you to pre-book up to three ride or attraction reservations per day. 

    The Frog Family absolutely loves staying on-site not just for the fun themes and Disney atmosphere of the hotels, but also for the convenient amenities. Some of the other complimentary benefits include:

    • Free MagicBands - You will have MagicBands shipped to your home (within the U.S.) or provided upon arrival. MagicBands are used as hotel keys and allow you to touch-and-go while entering the parks (Valid Theme Park admission required), using FastPass+ or PhotoPass locations, and making purchases. 
    • Convenient Proximity - You can easily go back to your hotel from the parks if you need a break or want to relax at the pool. It's just as easy to head back to the parks after relaxing at your hotel for a couple of hours.
    • Free Airport Service - With Disney's Magical Express® Transportation, the convenient motorcoach service transports you between Orlando International Airport and your Official Walt Disney World® Hotel. Have your MagicBands ready to go at the airport before boarding. Learn more about Disney's Magical Express® Transportation.
    • Free Park Transportation - Along with complimentary transportation to the airport, you'll also receive free transportation to all Disney Theme Parks! Depending on which Official Walt Disney World® Hotel you stay at, you'll have access to the Monorail, water launch and/or bus transportation. Many of the Official Walt Disney World® Hotels are also walking distance to the parks and other resorts.
    • Free Wi-Fi - When staying on-site, you'll have access to complimentary wi-fi, available in your room and select public areas, such as the pools, arcades, restaurants and more.
    • Extended Theme Park Hours - With Extra Magic Hours Benefit, you can enter the park on select days one hour early, or stay an extra two hours after park closing. If you want to be able to stay at a park during regular hours, but use your EMH for a different park, you'll need a Park Hopper ticket. Read more about Extra Magic Hours Benefit and when we recommend you use them. (Valid Theme Park admission and Resort ID required)
    • Kids' Programs - The Official Walt Disney World® Hotels offer child care services for a cost when parents want a night out. They usually require advanced reservations, so be sure to look into the resort's specific program!
