Not So "Magical"

MLSuit3 (Bristol, Virginia) on Aug 07, 2022

Room was ready at noon when we checked in. We chose to check in in person instead of the Disney app. The cast member stated we were on the 2nd floor of the garden wing. We asked if by some chance we could get a 1st floor so we could have a patio. The cast member called someone ( I think house keeping) to see if a 1st floor room was available. After 5 minutes of waiting, she stated no 1st floor rooms were available because the garden wing was sold out. My wife and I decided that we would ask the young lady if, by some crazy chance, could we upgrade to the tower and how much more would it cost. She rudely said, "I wish you would have asked me that the first time when I had house keeping on the phone!" We politely said that we would just take the room we were assigned and tried to get the info and leave. She continued, "No, I will try!". After another 5 minutes we said we were fine with our assigned room and asked for the info. She hung the phone up and shoved the paper at us. (If only I remembered her name). Not so magical. Resort pros- short walk to Magic Kingdom (very nice), garden wing rooms are all newly updated with same theming as tower, big room, quite, parking lot very close to wing entrance, Steakhouse 71 was very good, quick service above average. Resort cons- at 10pm on our first night, a cast member called and left a message on our room phone stating we had an outstanding balance and that I needed to come to the main desk (back in the main tower) and resolve it. I went down there and yet another rude cast member said we owed the entire amount of our trip. The problem was, the upon checkin, the first cast member never asked us to pay. On the second night, we had another message stating we had an outstanding balance and to come to the desk. At 11pm, I went down to speak to the cast members and stated that this was BS and my wife and I were ready to pack up and leave (not to mention another guest was complaining that their room had no hot water for 2 days). This time, a wonderful cast member explained the situation. Disney wants you to keep a credit card online for all accounts to be paid each day. Where we only booked "resort" only online and paid the balance in full the night before on the app, his computer could not see that the account was paid in full because a credit card was not on file with the resort itself. I said that is a Disney issue and showed him where the payment went through my bank account and where the app displayed a zero balance. Just not sure why it took 2 nights for someone to explain it. Perhaps the rude first cast member should have done her job and took my money instead of making our check it "Not so magical." Every Disney resort I have stayed at cast members that are at the front desk have the power to make things "magical" and can check for rooms without calling for help. The garden wing seemed like the outcast compared to the tower. Grounds not cleaned music being played through the resort speakers that sounded like a bad radio station. Again, not so magical. Won't stay here again. The tower is over priced and the garden wing is just okay.

Magic Kingdom Fireworks

JordanPalmerr (Hemel Hempstead, United Kingdom) on Aug 02, 2022

Whilst we didn't stay at the Contemporary, we have done both a boat excursion to watch the fireworks as well as a canape party on the top level baclony at the hotel. The staff are always very friendly and the inside has good decor and an array of restaurants/bars.
