    Friday evening my parents and I drove from st pete to Orlando to meet up with my fiancé after he spent a week or business in that area. We were so excited because at almost 26 years young he had never been to Disney before. I had worked all day prior to traveling and hadn’t made our dinner reservations. I called the line and they weren’t so helpful so I stopped by concierge and I met Danielle from Canada. She completely blew me away with her positive attitude, attentiveness to my needs, and overall caring personality. I knew I had dropped the ball on dinner and everything was booked and we were starving after driving 3 hours. She physically walked upstairs to the California restaurant upstairs and spoke with them about arranging our dinner. Not only did she get our reservation but we were window side overlooking the castle for the fireworks. It truly was so magical and I would have never of had that opportunity with my family and lover if it wasn’t for her. She set the tone of this short trip and I wish I could hug her again and say thank you. It had been 10 years since I was at Disney. I believe when you work in the same industry (resort hospitality) and have someone else give you the same customer service you strive to give other people it makes it all worth while. Thank you Danielle for helping make my engagement, graduation, and Zach’s first trip to Disney acknowledged and celebrated with magic.

    Mixed feelings.

    I will preface this interview by saying that I have stayed in Bay Lake Tower (the Disney Vacation Club area of Contemporary) and it was absolutely wonderful - one of my favorite stays on property. This time it wasn't available so we stayed in the garden wing of Contemporary, and I was pretty disappointed. The garden wing is painfully average - the elevators are slow, the ceilings are low, the decor is outdated, the rooms are bland, and worst of all - there's nothing "Disney" inside the rooms. I will say that the location is perfect for Magic Kingdom and California Grill continues to be one of my favorite places for dinner and fireworks, but the garden wing left me with a little bit of an empty feeling.

    The room and balcony were Wonderful! The elevators not so much. There is no other way of getting around, since once you go out to the steps you have to go the whole way down and cannot reenter. I wonder why they don't have key/magic band access from the outside steps?

    We are a seasoned Disney family, having been many times and stayed at many different properties on site. We arrived early, when I checked in they had upgraded us from the garden wing to the main building, we were ecstatic! We dropped our things in the room, which was gorgeous and very spacious. We headed out to Animal Kingdom, bus service was there in about 10 minutes. We were exhausted that night, and came in to sleep. Around 10pm or so we were awakened by the electric lights parade right outside our room. It was something we’d seen before, but we were cracking up that it woke us up it was so loud! Second day, walked to Magic Kingdom, and if I say one thing it’s that it is worth it to stay here just to be that close that you can walk! It was great. That evening, we were up at dinner at the California Grill, my daughter wasn’t feeling well. Unfortunately, she never got better until the end of the trip. Anytime I called the desk, they’d send extra towels, wash cloths, anything they could to help. They even called me to check on her. That’s a special touch. I also went down the next day to the food court - Contempo Cafe’ - and asked for crackers, they gave me a bag full of them and even some ginger ale to try to help. Everyone went out of their way for us. It was so nice to see that even when your vacation isn’t perfect because of sickness, at least the hotel staff is going out of their way to make it as good as it could be. My son and husband went out to parks, we’d switch and I’d go with my son, etc. I called the last night and asked for late check out because of how sick she was, Magical express wasn’t coming until 4pm for us, so they were able to let us stay until 1pm on check out day. I wanted to thank everyone who went out of their way, from front desk, to housekeeping, to food staff and everyone in between, you helped us so much in a not so great time. Now, the room was fine, the beds were extremely comfortable, the noise from Chef Mickey could be a bit much, but it was fine. The bathrooms were nice and clean. I will say that the sinks look beautiful, but take up all the counter space. My son (17) ended up sleeping on the sofa bed to avoid germs, he said it was pretty comfortable! We didn’t get to the pool, but it looked beautiful. We were there during a very busy time, but it didn’t feel that way at all. The monorail was great to Epcot! I even took it to Magic Kingdom when my feet were too tired! The shops were great there too! Hmm, what am I forgetting? I think that’s it, all in all, a very nice resort.

    The Contemporary Resort Atrium Club Level.is the only place we stay.

    The Contemporary Resort is the only place we stay. We have been going there since 1981 and every year since 2004 we only stay at the Atrium Club Level. They treat you like family there. We come back each year in September and when we check in and are brought up to the 12th fl. The Cast Members all come over to us right away, hug us and welcome us back. We have known them for so long they are part of our family. If you like being treated like a King or Queen this is the place to stay. Food is always out including deserts and drinks in the evening. The Contemporary has the Monorail going through it which makes it easy to go to Magic Kingdom and Epcot. There are restaurants and two pools and many more things. If you like the personal touch the Atrium Club Level is the place.
