Limited Services/Amenities Available, Not Ready for Guests

Voyager634520 on Jul 23, 2021

Disappointed in Disney Resorts: We have stayed at several different resorts at Disney over the years and our recent experience at the Contemporary Resort Garden Wing was a major let-down. The Disneyworld Reservations website does not inform guests of the following things, which I feel are important to know before considering booking there: No room service available right now. Only one sit-down restaurant open; itcloses at 9PM. No place to get anything to eat after 9PM-- we were told by front desk to order from Grub-Hub! The Disney App on our phone is what they want you to use to do everything--from opening your room door to ordering food (that you have to go pick up at the restaurant), to making a dining reservation. The problem is that we couldn't get ours to work with our door and the front desk told us they couldn't help because they couldn't even get their own app to work; that the app was "temporarily down." When the Disney App wouldn't work to open our door to our room, the front desk told us to go buy a $25.00 Magic Band. They didn't offer us a traditional room key card until we walked to the desk and asked for it. Hotel is very short-staffed; it was a long wait to speak with front desk. Housekeeping only includes a towel change and trash empty ever other day. Dated decor and room furniture and beds are in poor shape. No extra -special details in room that make staying at a Disney Resort special: animal shaped folded towels on bed, etc. Room technology is limited, charging stations not functioning, cable TV format is out-dated, no premium channels or Disney+, limited channel selection. TV is encased in the wall, making it impossible to plug in a streaming device, such as an Amazon Fire TV stick. WIFI was slow at best. Major renovations and construction is going on in the main building, so guests are being relocated to the Garden Wing, which is a walk and has the worst looking rooms and views. Bell Service was spotty. There were no luggage carts at the Garden Wing and the staff told me I had to walk all the way to the main building to get a cart if I needed one, (which I did). I couldn't get anyone at Bell Service to answer the phone.

I hate leaving this review because I love Disney

Cooper4421 (Columbus, Ohio) on Jul 19, 2021

It has always been a dream of mine to stay at this hotel and figured since I was taking my daughter for her first Disney trip we would splurge a little and make it extra special for our whole family. We first booked the main building but received a call to let us know it would be under renovations when we were going. That was no problem because we could still stay in the garden wing. People have mentioned in other reviews it's outdated but I didn't really care because its the Contemporary and we would only really only be in the room to shower and sleep. We got there and the room seemed to be just fine. The only thing that really seemed to look old was maybe the carpet in the hallways. That didn't really matter to me though, the height of the ceiling is very low for a taller individual. My husband is 6'7" and only had a few inches above his head it seemed. Once we used the room for the 2 things we needed(showering and sleeping) Thats when we noticed the disappointment. The beds were not comfortable and seemed to be sloped down on the edges like they were just too worn. The shower I think was worse as where the shower tile meets the tub was gross. You could tell they were trying to cover the dirt with more and more caulking. It was very disappointing as I have never stayed here and growing up I thought this was the coolest hotel with the monorail going right through it. I might give it another chance once more renovations are done but not anytime soon. If it was not a Disney hotel I probably would have given it 1 star review. The cast members were all very wonderful throughout our stay but those two Things I just can't look past.
