Complete Guide to Contemporary Resort (w/ review)

Disney’s Contemporary Resort is one of the original hotels still standing at Walt Disney World.

It debuted on October 1, 1971, the same day the Magic Kingdom opened its gates. So, you might even say it’s an iconic resort, especially since the Monorail runs straight through it.

This is also 1 of 8 Deluxe Resort hotels (not including Deluxe Villas) on Disney World property. The resort is described as “ultra-modern,” with unforgettable views, an iconic A-frame main tower, and a Garden Wing.

Contemporary is also located next door to Bay Lake Tower, a Disney Vacation Club Resort.

As a Deluxe Resort at Disney World, Contemporary is more expensive and includes different amenities compared to Value and Moderate Resorts.

Here’s everything you need to know about the resort.

Pros and Cons

Pros: Can walk to Magic Kingdom, easy to get to most other resorts using monorail or MK buses, views of Magic Kingdom fireworks, can view Electrical Water Pageant from hotel, 50-minute specialty cruises for up to 10-12 people available at the dock, large rooms, salon on site, rooms themed to The Incredibles

Cons: Cons: Pool isn’t anything special, theming seems sterile to some people, bus transportation can be shared with other hotels, can be noisy from Chef Mickey’s

The Contemporary is beloved by many and is a popular choice for guests. Not only does the resort have three forms of transportation and a walkway to the Magic Kingdom, but the Contemporary offers great views of Cinderella Castle and Space Mountain. Also located nearby is Bay Lake Tower, a Disney Vacation Club resort.

The resort is also filled with history, including a 90-foot-tall mural designed by legendary Imagineer and artist Mary Blair who was responsible for the overall design of “it’s a small world.”

The Contemporary is definitely a classic. Here’s what else you need to know.

Guest Rooms And Bathrooms

The rooms at the Contemporary are, yes, contemporary-themed. They can also sleep up to 8 guests, depending on the room selected.

There are plenty of amenities, including a hairdryer, TV, free WiFi, a Keurig coffee maker, telephone, in-room safe, iron and ironing board, and a mini-refrigerator.

The views also range depending on if you’re staying in the Main Tower, the Garden Wing, or a room that offers Club Level Service.

There are outlets and USB ports available as well to charge devices. And if you’re worried about storage, don’t be, because there are closets, drawers, counter space above and below the bathroom sink, and a desk area. Unfortunately, there isn’t space underneath the bed to place luggage.

Let’s go through the types of rooms available to book.

Contemporary Buildings

The Contemporary has 2 sections of rooms. These are separate areas from Bay Lake Tower, which is its own individual Disney Vacation Club hotel, even though it is on the same property.

Bay Lake Tower and the main Contemporary Resort Tower are connected by the Sky Way Bridge, allowing for accessibility especially when it comes to dining and other amenities.

As for the Contemporary rooms, they are located in the following buildings:

Contemporary Resort Tower

This is the main tower, where you can find the lobby, the Monorail station (it enters and exits the tower), gift shops, dining, access to buses, views of Magic Kingdom, and more.

The rooms provide different views, including Cinderella Castle and Space Mountain, Bay Lake, and more.

There are interior hallways, which means as soon as you exit your room, you’ll see the hustle and bustle of the second level that houses Chef Mickey’s, the Monorail, and more.

Contemporary Resort Garden Wing
