How to Get There
My daughter and I went here for a quick trip in February. We loved it! The location was worth the price alone. I can not tell how amazing it was to leave the Magic Kingdom and not having to wait for a bus and a 15-20 minute bus ride back to your hotel after a long day. We walked to and from the Magic Kingdom although you could take the monorail to the Magic Kingdom but you will be making a few stops before. It is the first stop on the way back which is nice. You will get your bag checked on the walkway there but by doing this you bypass the big line at the MK entrance.
The only thing that was not a gee whiz about this hotel was the pool. For a deluxe resort it was pretty ordinary. Other than that The Contemporary exceeded our expectations and we will stay there again!
Let me just say the trip was the ultimate adventure and every detail of it was meticulously planned and executed to perfection. Everything about it, from the first moment at the front desk in the main lobby, to being brought up in elevator to the 14th floor of the contemporary, to the last moment of our trip when it was time to depart from the beautiful lobby of the top floor. In this review I will describe in detail the full scale of my parties experience being Tower Club Level at Disney's Contemporary Resort.
We arrived to the Contemporary on the magical express, and were welcomed by a cast member at the front doors. From the main lobby, the cast member at concierge accompanied us to the 14th floor, where we were welcomed by the cast member at the private Tower Club concierge desk. She provided us with a phone number so that we could text or call at any time during our stay. We did not have time to check our room at that point however we did look at the lounge, which looked out on Magic Kingdom and Cinderella's Castle.
More on the room and the floor specifically, the whole 14th floor has an air of luxury and a peacefulness that was very refreshing at the end of the night when we wanted some peace and quiet after the veritable chaos of the parks. We booked for a standard room club level initially and requested to be on the 14th floor theme park view, but it was not a guarantee. Turns out the Disney Cast Members at the resort worked their magic and were able to grant all of our requests. The three of us were so ecstatic to arrive to our spacious and beautiful room! To give you an idea, this room is about the size of a regular room plus half, the bathroom is about double the size, and the balcony is the size of a small hotel room! It is absolutely stunning! The pillows on the bed and the mattress itself were like clouds that you would want to sink into and never leave. The duvet was warm and luxurious but never suffocating. The room also came stocked with deluxe H2O+ products in the bathroom, including a foot scrub that my daughter loved. The bathroom has a lovely oversized shower and a large vanity with a light up makeup mirror. The mirror was one of the best parts of the bathroom plus a wonderful plush vanity throw rug. There were robes and slippers that come standard with club level rooms. The Keurig in the room was amazingly convenient because my daughter is an avid coffee lover. Long story short, we have no bad things to say about the room, except the water pressure in the shower was a tad light. It didn't cause any issues for us however, so it really isn't an important detail. The club lounge was simply sophisticated and tranquil. The food selection was always different, they have four different parts to the day. During our stay we were able to partake in breakfast, small bites, and desserts and cordials. The furnishings were comfortable and luxurious in the lounge and the attached balcony has a view that just could not be beat by anything except the view from our room! We were there celebrating my daughter's 21st Birthday and she was so happy! Side note Mousekeeping could not have done a better job cleaning our room every day and we were nothing but happy with the cleanliness of the room. The concierge cast members at the 14th floor desk were just superb. Holly, Luanne, Susan, and Lee really went above and beyond to make us feel completely at home and made our stay extra magical. Anything we could possibly want was granted.
Now more on the hotel grounds. The first impression pulling up to the grounds was the impeccable state of the lawns and the absolutely massive Christmas tree. This was around the time of Thanksgiving week/Christmas so the entire resort was decked out for the holiday's. Of course the resort is visually stunning from the outside, and the inside. The main pool that we visited had a waterslide that we had so much fun going down multiple times. The hot tub was also the perfect way to relax after the end of a long day.
All in all our experience at Disney's Contemporary Resort was nothing but absolutely wonderful, if I could give it 10 stars out of five I would.
In the past, I had never stayed at a Disney resort, however after a quick trip to AKL June 2018, I wanted to see more!
My husband (having never been to Disney) and I opted to go for a belated honeymoon to visit my grandmother (who is in her 90’s) and to explore the parks. Contemporary seemed a convenient choice for accessibility to Magic Kingdom and Epcot.
Magical Express was quick and easy and all around pleasant. Check in at Contemporary was seamless and we were so grateful for being surprised with an upgrade!
The room was wonderful! Whereas I was concerned it would be too loud (right above the food court area) the noises quickly disappeared once our door was closed.
Food and service was exceptional!
The convenience of the monorail was amazing (husband was obsessed with the monorail)
Our Mousekeeper Johanna was wonderful and surprised us daily with towel animals which we so appreciated!
Overall, once again Disney truly continues to impress me. My husband is now also a fan and has already booked another stay later this year at the Yacht Club!
We stayed there because of the conference and it was a great stay. The room is a bit tiny for our taste. The rooms is clean but the bathroom smell like urine a bit. We did not tell the House keeping to fix it. The lake view is amazing. It was a bit noisy. The room need to be completely sound proof since sometimes we heard kids screaming from outside.
Just returned from a conference which was held at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. This is an annual conference which for the last several years has been held at this venue. In the past the hotel and service was not up to par as say, the Grand Floridian, but I have to say that my visit this year was nothing less than perfect...seriously, it was that good! Check in was a breeze- front desk staff were professional, helpful and friendly. There is ample free parking for guests. The room was larger than most - definitely is - or at least seems to be - larger than at The Beach Club and Boardwalk for example. The room was spotless with ample towels and amenities. Fridge with plenty of space, the coffee machine is a Keurig by the way. Since I’m a big coffee drinker, I asked for extra coffee and it was delivered in mere minutes...and it wasn’t like the place was empty- this hotel was packed on a Holiday weekend, yet the service was quick, friendly and professional. There are plenty of outlets for electronics. Beds/pillows are very comfortable. The safe can fit a laptop + other stuff. There’s no skimping on towels either. The service in the large cafeteria and in the novelty stores was amazing. It was a little late when I arrived, so I grabbed a pre-made Greek salad in the self serve part of the cafeteria. It was fresh, really good... and no skimping on ingredients either. One night we ate at The Wave- the food and service was fabulous- my only complaint would be the noise level in the restaurant, but hey, it’s Disney, so that’s to be expected. The bar at The Wave was pretty crowded, but the service was excellent. (To compare- the next night we ate at Citrico’s at The Grand Floridian - their signature restaurant- and though the service and food there was also very good, I have to say we enjoyed our meal at The Wave much more.)
As for the conference itself, this hotel has excellent business facilities, very professional staff, amazing service. Can NOT ask for a better venue anywhere.
In the past, I’ve stayed at The Boardwalk, The Dolphin, The Yacht Club, The Beach Club, The Grand Floridian and The Contemporary. Though I like The Beach Club for the convenience of Epcot, the best hotel in my opinion is The Contemporary.
Great job Contemporary! Thank you!
