    This futuristic hotel was one of the first resorts built at Disney World. The monorail glides into the 14-story Grand Canyon Concourse, and there's a great view of the Magic Kingdom across the Seven Seas Lagoon.

    One of the Original Disney properties, the Contemporary Resort has the thrill of the monorail running through the middle of it. Its fun even if just riding from the main Magic Kingdom monorail station to the park.

    The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were beautiful. Our room was on the water side, but very close to the end of the building near Magic Kingdom. At night we could stand outside our door and watch the fireworks over Space Mountain then walk through our room to the patio and watch the Lighted Water Parade. The best of both!

    Until I stayed at a Disney Resort I had no idea how convenient Disney makes everything for its guests. From the Contemporary, I could walk over to the Magic Kingdom or catch the Monorail to Epcot and then catch a bus to Animal Kingdom. There's no hassle with parking and no stress of finding anything. I felt like I was on a cruise ship where all my needs were easily met. Oh, and the bed was comfortable too.

    For some reason, knowing that each room was made separately and then assembled here just adds to its charm and mystique.
    The amenities are nice, and the rooms are comfortable. And even though the monorails run through, not beside the resort, you are really close enough to the Magic Kingdom to walk.

    My favorite part of this resort: the monorail glides straight through it. It never gets old. Nice bar area, too. Love the landscaping, too - very modern.

    I have to say these are the most beautiful rooms on property and some of the most spacious. The very modern and comfortable.
    The location of this resort can't be beat as it's an easy walk over to the Magic Kingdom. You can also hop on the monorail to get to the Magic Kingdom, Transportation & Ticket Center (for transit to EPCOT) or to get to other monorail resorts.
    The restaurants are varied from California Cuisine to character buffets.
    The pool is on the mild side of fun. Not Disney's best pool but one that does at least have a slide and fountains. Being on Bay Lake means there are water craft available for hire or parasailing.
