    Where is the best location to stay at the contemporary? We need it quiet for our baby. Away from Chef Mickey and the monorail.

    I stayed in a room at the Contemporary main building in December, on a low floor quite near Chef Mickey's. I was a bit nervous about the noise situation in this location. I could hear a bit of ambient hotel noise if I was standing right at the room's doorway. But even that little bit of noise disappeared when I was even two or three feet away from the door. When i was in the bed area, i heard absolutely nothing.

    All that being said, you can minimize your noise further but asking for a room on a high floor, away from the elevators, on the Bay Lake Tower side of the building. You could also staying the Garden wing of the Contemporary, not in the main building. This would possibly be the tiniest smidge quieter, but you do lose some of the wow factor of the hotel.

    During my December stay at the Contemporary and stays in January and February at the Bay Lake Tower (right next door), my only noise issue had to do with the evening fireworks. If you're staying on the Magic Kingdom side of the building, you get an incredibly view, but you also get some fairly loud booming during the nightly fireworks display.  My kids would certainly sleep through this if they were already down for the night, but if they were in the process of falling asleep, I think they would likely be distracted by the noise.
