Two weeks ago I posted mystery photos of a first rate family hotel… and urged people to guess.
I am revealing now: It is the Contemporary Resort in Orlando, Florida. In my opinion, the best of all the Disneyworld resorts – new, fresh, cool contemporary design, monorail comes right inside the hotel to take you to the park, and California Grill upstairs with terrific views of Disneyworld and beyond.
It depends on your family, but the other resorts are more gimmicky and theme based – which some kids love…. but this hotel is not without it’s perks for kids. A Mickey-shaped swimming pool with a tall tunnel slide, movies on the grass at night, and it’s close enough to the park the kids can watch Disney’s firework show above the Magic Castle from your room, in their jammies!
BTW - nice perks for adults: washer and dryer in the room – they have suites with two bedrooms and a kitchen which was very helpful to us.
I will repost my photos I took while I was there… but you can also check out: www.disneyworld.disney.go.com/resorts/contemporary-resort/
