Beautiful place to stay! 5 minute walk to the Magic Kingdom, It would have been helpful to know in advance that all of the restaurants needed reservations!

Great hotel

Great hotel! Beautiful view of the Magic Kingdom from our room! Jen and Bob, the hotel staff were wonderful! They were so friendly and so helpful. The food at the Contempo Cafe was delicious and the staff there was very friendly. Would definitely stay at the Contemporary Resort again.

Our stay at the Contemporary

Our stay at the Contemporary started out on a bad note. I had called prior to checking in to request adjoining rooms. I explained I had an autistic child that needed this extra space between the two rooms so my other family members could be readily available in case I needed them. The hotel assured me it would not be a problem. Well guess what? When we checked in they said they had nothing in the computer about this. After explaining why I needed this still nothing. Said they could not accommodate us but could the next night. Needless to say we didn't get much sleep the first night. Had gobs of hair in both bathroom tubs. At the end of our stay we decided to have brunch at the California Grill restaurant at the hotel. After our 600 bill came for 6 people for brunch the waitress said she would validate our valet voucher for the day. When my husband presented it to the attendant they said they couldn't honor it because we checked in on Friday and it was now Sunday. After speaking with the manager they still wouldn't budge. I just think if you are going to portray yourself as one of the top Disney Resorts they should act like it instead of treating people like any other hotel would be expected too.

Excellent location

Pros: The location is very close to Magic Kingdom and we can enjoy the fireworks in our balcony.
Cons: Housekeeping.
Upon check in I have to call housekeeping right away as our room is dirty-floor not vacuumed and dusty. The next day housekeeping staff did not replenish our toiletries. Third day I specifically asked housekeeping staff to replenish toiletries and still they did not complied with my request. I had to call housekeeping late that night to get toilet paper. I wanted to file a complaint and was informed that Housekeeping manager will call me but never did.

Nice quite clean place

Pros: We were really close to things, but not in all of the commotion.
Cons: Change the light bulbs more often.
Location: The buss would come by the hotel regularly for easy access to Downtown Disney, Blizzard Beach, etc.
The room was quiet and clean. We were close to the monorail, the Magic Kingdom, just a short walk to boating activities and the pool. We had a problem with light bulbs in the bathroom as they kept burning out on us--but this was addressed right away, lol.

NOT impressed

I have stayed at The Polynesian twice, the Swan once , first time at Contemporary and not coming back. The room decor is nice, space is good for a family of five, the bathroom is cute but no door lock, the room was not fully ready for occupancy when we arrived, the front desk male supervisor had the "could care less " attitude and condescending when my husband complained about the multiple times the room keys didn't work- instead of saying "We apologize. we'll fix it", the supervisor gave my husband a long spiel of excuses.
