    We were so excited to stay here. My daughter has been wanting to stay here since we started coming to Disney about 6 years ago. I decided not to upgrade for a park room since they are not currently having the firework shows, so we stayed in a garden view. Our room was on the 8th floor facing the pool and lake. It was a great view, very pretty. The room is ok, for the price I would expect a few nicer amenities, but your really paying for the location more than anything else. You can hear everything in the room. Every night they show a movie until 10:00 p.m and you can hear the entire movie in the room, so if you are trying to sleep before 10:00 forget it. Not to mention you can hear the rooms next door and everything going on in the atrium. From the music to the floor cleaning that takes place in the middle of the night. Save your money, stay somewhere else. The monorail currently only goes to the magic kingdom. The bus system is much slower than usual. Maybe it was just our timing but every time we took the bus we waited from 15 to 30 minutes. We visited the weekend before Thanksgiving. The parks were busy and we waited in line for everything in every park. The wait time were shorter than the posted times, but only by 10 to 15 min, not half from the majority of the reviews. We did feel safe and everyone practiced social distancing and wore face masks.

    We had a very spacious room overlooking the water. Monorail quick connect to Magic Kingdom and Grand Floridian was great making the trip fast and easy. Enjoyed California Grill as always. However, we left missing a bit of that Disney Magic that is felt at that other Disney resorts so most probably would not stay here again and would opt for one of the other Disney resorts.

    We recently stayed at the Disney’s Contemporary Hotel Main building for 4 nights. While the hotel can feel like you just stepped back into the 80’s we found it to have a special charm. Our room 4547 had the most incredible views of the Magic Kingdom Castle, Space Mountain, monorail and Grand Floridian my children loved going to bed with the sight of the castle lit up at night and waking up to it in the morning. We enjoyed our meals at the California Grill and the front desk attendants were great. Downsides due to Covid this hotel is not offering room service but the bigger issue is that they only offer housekeeping every other day and will not make your bed or change your sheets, they will only leave you extra sets of sheets but not physically change them. I have stayed at numerous hotels during Covid and every one of them had housekeeping who would tend to your bed. With the money being spent it should be expected. I am all for the safety of guest and employees but Covid does not live on surfaces for more than a few seconds so there is really no reason not to have housekeeping daily and the beds made especially if guests are out of the room. Other than that we had a lovely time and would stay again if the price was right.

    I must admit we were hesitant to stay here just from experiences in the restaurants located inside the resort and from other stories that we had heard about the place. Also we were concerned about noise. We are so glad that we did stay here. We had a room in the Garden Wing so it was quiet and close to everything. The room was larger than other deluxe rooms that we have stayed. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. The room was overall clean although I did need to wipe down some areas in the bathroom that did not appear to have been wiped in a while. Was a little surprised by that with all the COVID measures, but it was all good because I had Lysol wipes.

    Very Good. Felt Safe.

    The hotel is in a great location in Disney World. Of course, there were many safety precautions in place and all of the restaurants weren't open. But they were constantly cleaning everything. Masks were required and they took your temp at park entrances. Everyone was very friendly. The housekeeping staff asked if we needed anything and when we told them we really like the body wash and shampoo they gave us some to take home. The beds, towels, quietness, etc. were all great.
