    Even if you can't get to the roof bar, the observation deck has many different places to view the Magic Kingdom fireworks from.

    Iconic original from Disney. Keep eyes open for off season deals. Great view of Magic Kingdom.

    Everything here has been fantastic especially the people and the view.

    If the weather isn't too hot, it's an easy walk to the Magic Kingdom. If you take the resort monorail, you'll have a couple of stops since it goes in the other direction.

    While the Garden View rooms are away from the main building, they are quiet and if you can score a room that has views of the bay, you'll love it.
  • Ricardo H.
    Easiest access to Magic Kingdom.

    Best place to stay when you are visiting Disney world. Walking distance to Magic Kingdom, WiFi, swimming pool. Room service is pricey. Spent $100 on lunch for 2 adults and 2 kids with no liquor 😬😬😬

    The hotel has a strange coffee and milk scent. After 5 days you'll start feeling dizzy. The room wi-fi didn't work during all our staying. The elevator also didn't work. It's overrated.

    If you stay here don't take the monorail to Magic Kingdom it travels away from the Magic Kingdom. Walking to the park is much quicker.

    Head up to the California Grill for a great view of Cinderella's Castle and a much needed adult beverage before heading in to the booze free Magic Kingdom.

    Pay more for Magic Kingdom view versus lake view...

    Easy INDOOR access to the monorail and a character dinner are home to the Contemporary. You'll also want to take the bathroom home with you! Great for families :)

    Nice hotel, but far too few elevators for a high-volume property of this size.

    Hotel itself if just okay. Definitely not the most interesting or the best in Disney. Fireworks up in California Grill. Turkey BLT from the cafe is great. Definitely walking to Magic Kingdom tomorrow!

    Don't stay here for luxury or fantastic service. This place is run by college interns who are very quick to answer, "I don't know." However, the 30 second monorail ride home from MK is priceless!

    There is a wall of smashed penny (and quarter!) machines just off elevators on main floor. Pack change accordingly.

    Make sure you have reservations for dinner. All of the resort restaurants fill quickly and have little or no room for walk ins.

    Reserve the character breakfast early before your trip because there was a wait list for it when I tried to make reservations last minute at check-in!
