    which is better, the swan and dolphin or contemporary?

    Hey Mary!

    The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resorts are beautiful and in a great location.  You'd be within walking distance of Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot.

    However, I'd choose Disney's Contemporary Resort (CR). You're a monorail ride (or a short walk) away from Magic Kingdom Park and there's nothing more exciting than seeing the monorail whizzing through the lobby of the hotel.  By staying at CR, you're also eligible for exclusive perks like Complimentary Airport Transportation via Magical Express (you have to pay for your own airport transfers at Swan and Dolphin), the Disney Dining  Plan, room charging privileges around Walt Disney World Resort, package delivery service, and Extra Magic Hours.

    You really can't go wrong with either option, but the extra perks of staying at a Walt Disney World-owned resort are enough to tip the scales in favor of Disney's Contemporary Resort.

    Have a magical day!
