The Contemporary Resort in Disney World is a wonderful resort and great option for any kind of trip. Whether it’s a family vacation, girls trip or business venture. Here’s some things you may NOT know about Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
Disney’s Contemporary Resort
Planning for a Disney World vacation can be very overwhelming. If you have never been on the property, it is even more confusing! There’s so many parks, resorts, restaurants and things to do. As the person making the plans, you know that picking where to stay can be the most difficult task in the entire process! How can you plan your trip if you don’t know the best location for your family? With so many options to choose from it can be a giant task. Well luckily I am here to give you some great information on one of the many beautiful resorts on Disney World property.
Take a Walk
The Contemporary Resort is located in the Magic Kingdom area of Disney World. It is within walking distance to the gates at Magic Kingdom. Just a few minutes to be exact. For a family with little ones who love Magic Kingdom, this is an amazing opportunity. There is no need to worry about busses, or bringing strollers or having to carry the little ones onto the bus and find seats. Which can be a daunting task if you are outnumbered by kids! Instead, you can simply walk to the park and enjoy a nice walk on your way back to the hotel. This also makes leaving the park mid-day for naps, pool time, or lunch much easier. It’s a nice relaxing way to avoid crowds and lines if you encountered them in the parks.
Ride the Monorail
The Monorail is also an option when staying at The Contemporary Resort. If you have never seen it, it is amazing. The Monorail goes directly into the hotel! The first time I saw this I was amazed. I love the Monorail and the idea of it going directly through the resort was a very cool thing for me! I am still amazed every time we ride and enter the side of the hotel. My kids always love it too. Sometimes we ride just so we can take a trip through. I still remember my first Disney trip. We took the Monorail into Magic Kingdom and as we were leaving the Contemporary’s stop, the Monorail was pulling out of The Contemporary and heading towards the Magical Kingdom. It was such an amazing and awe inspiring moment for me. It is still one of my most favorite Disney memories.
Enjoy a Boat Ride
The Monorail isn’t the only form of transportation The Contemporary offers. There are busses that run from the resort to the parks from a bus stop conveniently located outside of the resort. The water craft services are also available from Hollywood Studios and Epcot. We always enjoy taking a boat to the parks. It’s not always faster than the busses for the Monorail but it’s definitely fun! It’s a nice relaxing way to get back and forth and enjoy a nice breeze while on the water. The boat staff are always very helpful, full of information and they can be very entertaining!
Dining at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
Disney’s Contemporary Resort is also full of some amazing dining experiences. Some of these locations include The California Grill, The Wave, and Chef Mickey’s. These restaurants are known for their contemporary take on food and flavors. Dining at The Contemporary has some “extra” perks too! The Contemporary offers a gorgeous view of the Fireworks displays at the Magic Kingdom, as well as a view of the water pageant that is held on the Seven Sea’s Lagoon.
The Contemporary also has many lounges for you to enjoy, they also have wonderful views of the Lagoon, and the Magic Kingdom. Which is a wonderful way to round out your evening after a day in the parks or even a day lounging in front of the pool! Some people have no idea about all the things Disney’s Contemporary Resort offers!
