Disney's famous '60s-mod "A-frame" hotel, where the monorail whizzes through the middle of the main building.



The location is fantastic - it is the only resort where you can easily walk to the Magic Kingdom, and if you get a room with a view of the park it's amazing. But the hotel doesn't feel like a Disney hotel. It just seems like an ordinary hotel that you would find in any other city.
This was one of my favorite places to stay, Rooftop restaurant was fun for their buffet breakfast with my children peering out the windows overlooking The Magic Kingdom, The Pool, marina, and shopping was fun too.

With the additional resort room buildings built over the past years.
I find it getting too crowded for enjoyment.
It was very comfortable in the 70's & 80's.
Realistically it was built to be comfortable for only so many people..
Now the amount of people tripled, and you have limited space for food service, and amenities... that is a no brainier. just keep expanding...

The Contemporary and Polynesian are my favorite two resorts at WDW. Side fact: Nixon gave his "I am not a crook" speech here.
