A Glimpse at Disney's Contemporary Resort
The Contemporary Resort was one of the first two hotels at the Walt Disney World Resort. It has become an Disney World icon and a favorite among many guests.
Here are a few reasons why we love it!
Location, location, location!
You can't beat the location of the Contemporary, the Grand Floridian and Polynesian are right up there though! Located across the Seven Seas Lagoon from Magic Kingdom the views from the Contemporary are some of the best at Disney! The Contemporary rooftop is the perfect place to take some pictures or take in the nightly fireworks at the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT.
Magic Kingdom is an easy jaunt from the Contemporary, just hop on the monorail on the 4th floor or walk!
The Contemporary Resort is host to two Disney dining staples, the California Grill and Chef Mickey's.
The California Grill has won numerous local, national, and international awards and it is one of the best restaurants in Disney World. It is known for its show kitchen and sushi bar but they have many more delicious menu options including a filet mignon that is one of the best steaks at Disney! Located on the 15th floor this is the perfect place to watch the fireworks at Magic Kingdom.
Chef Mickey's offers a character breakfast and dinner, and is one of the most sought after reservations in all of Disney! Mickey, Goofy, Minnie, and Pluto all stop by so that you can get autographs and pictures!
The views are what make the rooms at the Contemporary Resort so special! Guests can request views of the Seven Seas Lagoon and the Magic Kingdom.
Bay Lake Towers is the DVC section of the Contemporary. These villas were opened in 2009 and feature the Bay Lake pool and the same amenities as the rest of the Contemporary Resort.
