Waste of money NOT as advertisedPosted Jun 7, 2017
This is an old hotel that do not transmit the hole "Disney MAGIC Experience". The satff was very diligent but the building scream that needs a remodelation with urgency. I stayed in the All Star Paying only $100 ($300 less per night than the Contemporary) and the total experience was excellent. Also Expedia show you the hotel tower rooms but we were sent to an anex NOT the tower. Even the EXIT sing were falling from the celling.(see picture) Very dissapointed with this hotel and with Expedia for having as a 4 star hotel...

Overrated, overpricedPosted Jun 5, 2017
Pros: Monorail. The Wave restaurant.
Cons: The price. The price for what you get.
Location: Very close to the Magic Kingdom.
I stayed at the Contemporary for 4 of my 6 nights at WDW. My first 2 nights were at the Swan and I wish I stayed there. Not only is the Contemporary majorly overpriced but it is not nice. I did not get what I paid for. I was placed in the South Garden area which is a quite the walk from the main building, has short ceilings and feels second class. I have other minor complaints like the bedding is old and the shower curtain nasty. It was disappointing. The best part was the convenience of the monorail. I would never stay there again.

We were checked into our room by 11 o'clock which was nice. Clean rooms, comfy bed, convenience of having the monorail and chef Mickey in our hotel.

Excellent resort! A+ all the way!Posted May 25, 2017
Superb location, spacious updated rooms, very comfortable beds/pillows and all the amenities you'd need. It's so convenient to have the monorail access to your hotel, we only needed bus service for AK and HS. I also can't say enough about the staff, the customer service was excellent. Would stay here again.

Not badPosted May 25, 2017
Hotel is a bit dated and uninspiring, which is out of character for Disney, but then again it is one of the more affordable resorts. The staff was very professional and friendly, from the concierge to the cleaning staff. The hotel was very clean, and the rooms are comfortable. The health center (gym) is very nice. It's not huge, but it's got plenty of equipment and it's all nice and new. The food was the most lacking. Way overpriced for mediocre food. We ate at the Contempo Cafe, and at The Wave. We never made it to California Grill (which has a reputation for being amazing). We found that hopping a bus to Disney Springs was the best way to grab a meal. Better food, and actually cheaper prices. I'd stay there again. Decent pool (my daughter loved it), and the staff made staying at the Contemporary worth it. Also, you can walk to Magic Kingdom in 6 minutes from the hotel, and you can watch the Wishes fireworks from the hotel also.
Great room. Casual dining in the grill not good.Posted May 17, 2017 on Hotels
The accomadations were great. Only negative comment was the California Grill in the hotel. Slow service and late night (10pm) they don't bother cleaning the tables.

It was fantastic and staying at the Contemporary resort made it extra speacil. I have always wanted to stay at the Contemporary and finally got the chance.

I wonder if it's really worth paying $400 a night for a sub par hotel that's the quality of a Holiday Inn. My advice is to stay at a local Hilton or Marriott hotel and save $200 a night to spend on something better.
