Insider tips

The Contemporary Resort, located between Bay Lake and the Seven Seas Lagoon, is one of the two original Walt Disney World hotels. The hotel is on the monorail loop. It consists of a large A-frame section (the Tower) and two wings (the Garden Wings). The fourth floor of the Tower is known as the Grand Canyon Concourse where you will find a variety of shops and restaurants as well as the monorail station.

The Tower rooms are more convenient to the shops, restaurants, front desk and monorail station. These rooms also offer great views. The rooms in the Wings are closer to the tennis courts, marina and swimming pools. The views from the rooms in the wings vary.

There are two pools at this Resort. The large pool has a 17-foot high curving slide. There is also a quiet pool which is shallow around the edges and deeper in the center. Two whirlpools have also been added. In addition there is a toddler pool located at North Garden wing.

The Resort offers three full-service restaurants. California Grill is located on the 15th floor of the Tower building and offers California-style cuisine. The views here are a perfect spot to watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks. The Concourse Steakhouse offers a variety of steaks, burgers and prime rib. Chef Mickey's (voted best Character Breakfast) has a buffet breakfast with Mickey and the gang.

In-room internet access is available, but if your laptop computer is Wi-Fi enabled,
you can access the internet from the common areas of the Resort. The fee is $9.95 for 24 hours. A wireless card is required. Cards are available for purchase in the business center.

Disney vacations

The least crowded time to visit is from Labor Day to Thanksgiving and from the week after President's Day (mid-February) to the start of Spring Break (mid-March).

You can definitely make the most of your vacation by staying at one of the Disney World hotels. If you do, you will enjoy special benefits such as Magic Hours, discounts at six Disney World golf courses, and the special Walt Disney World quality and service.

But if you choose to stay at one of the many hotels near Disney World, you can still visit all of the Disney properties to enjoy the atmosphere, have a meal, or shop. You may be charged for parking, but you can get validated for up to one hour of parking for each $10 you spend while you're there.

Some of the more popular deluxe priced resorts include Walt Disney's Wilderness Lodge, Polynesian Resort, Animal Kingdom Lodge, and the Grand Floridian Resort hotels.

Disney sells theme park tickets on their website, but you can not print the tickets, meaning you must order early and have the tickets mailed to you.
You can also buy tickets through your local auto club, Disney Store or through a school or work activities office. Many offsite hotels also sell Disney passports at the front desk.

I suggest researching Disney ticket prices in advance, and buy your pass before you get to the park. No sense wasting the first hour waiting in line at the ticket booth.
