Disney's Contemporary Resort reviews
Disney's famous '60s-mod "A-frame" hotel, where the monorail whizzes through the middle of the main building.
The Contemporary and Polynesian are my favorite two resorts at WDW. Side fact: Nixon gave his "I am not a crook" speech here. - Mitchell Olson
Very good for young children (newborn-preschool) who spend most of their time in Magic Kingdom because you can push your own stroller right back to the hotel without having to fold it up and wait for buses, ferries, monorails etc. Grade-school children might be put-off by the stark decor. This is a very quiet hotel in certain areas (the more remote ones). The restaurants are some of the best with something for everyone - Chef Mickey's is popular for kids and the view after dinner at California Grill is unique. The pool is not as exciting as others with a single waterslide and you can enjoy the "beach" but not swim in the lake. I think their quick service although not amazing is so much faster on a busy day that even guests not staying on property should consider visiting the hotel for a snack after the park has closed. - Emily Brux
