    Day one we thought it was going to be awesome we got here early and before we even parked the car our room was ready. We put everything in the room and off to the park we went. When we got back the door wouldn’t open. We tried to call from our cell phone and got no answer so we went down to the front desk they assume it’s the battery in the door and sent someone to let us in our room and now we get to wait for someone to come fix the door. Cool. Then we go to take a shower and after about a half hour of freezing water we find that the faucet is backwards which is a minor inconvenience. Then I keep waking up to cigarette butts on the balcony because someone above me keeps smoking and throwing them over the edge. I called front desk and they just said ok they can come clean it up if I want them to. I want to not worry about a lit cigarette falling on my head when I’m on my balcony. But whatever again minor issue. Final night here I asked front desk if I could get a luggage cart to take all my stuff to my car. I’ve seen some people with them and I’ve been at Disney a week.... I’ve bought a lot of stuff you know... she says I can come downstairs in the morning and ask bell services for one. Awesome I’m cool with that. The next morning I come downstairs and ask bell services for a cart and they say due to covid I can’t take a cart but they can send someone to take my stuff and when I said no I don’t want a bell hop I just wanted a cart they proceed to try to push me into a bell hop. So it takes me three trips to get all my stuff to my car and after all the issues I’ve had with this stupid hotel I’ve dreamed of staying in since I was a kid I’m done and I’m pissed. If you dream of staying here keep dreaming your dreams are better than your experience.

    $400 and they don’t even clean rooms, they say is because COVID but what is the difference between changing sheets, and towels and giving you the sheets for you to change them, people will touch towels and linen for you to have them, so why they don’t change it for you, for the price you pay you should be able to have clean towels and bed made everyday or every other day...

    OK with Covid-19 precautions

    Room felt clean. With covid precautions there were a lot of extra steps being taken. Masks required everywhere, restaurants with adjustments, what appeared to be thorough room cleaning including the TV remote covered in plastic, etc. We are WDW annual pass holders so have been many times but this was our first stay at the Contemporary and it felt a little dated. Our favorite resort is the Grand Floridian so the bar is set very high but the Contemporary feels older. The room and hallways have very low ceilings and while the rooms are a good size they feel like they could use updating. The side lit bathroom mirrors in our room had chips in the lighting so it looked bad. Some of the caulking and grout looked old and needing maintenance. The tile in the entry way and bathroom had stains that made it look like it wasn’t cleaned which was of concern during Covid-19. The view from our room (4503) was nice. It was on the lake view side, not the park view side, but had a great view of the pool. I was impressed that on the busy 1st and 4th floors they had a cast member there during busy times to press the elevator buttons for you and wipe down the areas constantly. Overall the stay was good. Wasn’t as good as The Grand Floridian, but then again what is! See other posts regarding a couple of the dining options at this resort.

    Checked in for 6 nights. Always likes this resort and we’ve visited often via the monorail on previous visits. Rooms are very spacious and clean. Not sure why but the hallway carpet made me think of snoopy dancing. We got a good deal and that’s why we decided to stay here. We would be back if we could stay at this rate again! My advice is to stay Thursday through Sunday as everything is open on those days.

    Always a great stay

    Over 40 years I probably stayed at this resort 10 times and it’s always a great place to stay. As one of the original hotels it was solidly built and the rooms are large. We had a garden wing room that was very big with two showers on the second floor and it was a great stay. Very orderly check in the whole hotel using best practices for keeping you safe and we had a very clean quiet room. We probably don’t stay here as much as we should just because at times it’s very expensive but it is a great place and very convenient.
