Staying on resort or off-resort at Walt Disney World is always a big decision for both new and seasoned travelers. As a Mickey Addict, I love staying on resort to take advantage of the best perks, Magic park hours, and that Disney service and magic you just can’t get anywhere else. Disney’s Contemporary Resort is an especially convenient place to stay and comes with fabulous views and unique perks.
If you’re on the fence of what to book and where, here are Castle Vacations top ten reasons for staying at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
1) The Monorail
Need we say more? The Disney monorail is a fun, easy, and fast way to get to Magic Kingdom and Epcot, or the other monorail adjacent resorts. As an added bonus, The Monorail even goes right through Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
2) The Walking Path
Are you looking for quick access to the Magic Kingdom? You can take a short walk from the resort straight to the Magic Kingdom. It’s an easy way to beat the Monorail crowds and is incredibly convenient if you have a stroller or wheelchair.
3) The Views
After a day at the park, watch the fireworks over Cinderella’s Castle right from your room at the Contemporary Resort at Disney. You can also take in dazzling views of the Magic Kingdom and watch the park in action.
4) California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
You don’t need to leave the resort to indulge in fine dining. The restaurant offers delicious meals and beautiful views from atop the resort.
5. Chef Mickey’s
If you love buffets, Chef Mickey’s offer a variety of food options and fun characters to meet and greet. Pro tip: If you’re lucky and get the right seat, you can even soak up the views of Cinderella’s Castle.
6. Electrical Water Pageant
Watch the Seven Seas Lagoon illuminate with an Electrical Water Pageant. You can watch it right from Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
7. The Resort Pools
Disney is known for its fabulous family-friendly pools. There’s even a fun water slide, cabanas for rent, and hot tubs for a relaxing soak. There’s also a quieter pool for an option to unwind away from the excitement.
8. The Rooms at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
The guest rooms at the resort are notoriously spacious and comfortable. It’s the perfect fit for my family of five, including two teenagers.
9. The Contempo Cafe
Pick up your refillable mugs from the Contempo Cafe for a quick service bonus. Or stay for a bite, refill your mug, and grab a snack. There are so many options to fuel your day for hours of fun.
10. The Art
I’m sure I’m not the only one who is a raving fan of the art around Disney’s resorts. There are so many spirited, inspiring, and beautiful pictures to see. Take a walk around the resort and get in touch with your creative side.
