I still consider the Contemporary hotel at Disney World the most impressive; It's the only one with a monorail station inside the hotel.

I think the Animal Kingdom Lodge is pretty impressive, but that's just me.

I have to agree. Animal Kingdom Lodge and Wilderness Lodge in my opinion are by far more impressive and grand than Contemporary. They are both always breathtaking to me!

I agree with Daniel E. Ever since I started going to Walt Disney World 34 years ago, I have been thrilled by the Contemporary Resort. I love the place. Several years ago we stayed there for one night. It was great to finally be able to stay there in the main building. I love all the hotels at WDW, but there is just something about the Contemporary Resort.

The Contemporary Hotel is the most iconic theme park resort at the number one vacation destination on the planet.

'nuff said!

Outside Disney, Loew's Portofino Bay has some very impressive architecture!

But out of the Disney hotels, Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is my favorite!
