    We are considering staying in the Floridian or Contemporary in May but can’t figure out what room we will get. We are aware both hotels have been or are being renovated. How will we know whether we will get a renovated or older decor room?

    Hey there, Lisa, and welcome to planDisney!

    I’m so excited to hear you have a magical Walt Disney World Resort holiday on the horizon! Springtime is the perfect time to visit, because the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival is taking place at EPCOT. This popular Festival features lush gardens, tasty sips and treats, topiaries of Disney characters, a butterfly house, and so much more. Make sure it’s included in your plans, because you don’t want to miss out on all the fun!

    I see you have exquisite taste, Lisa. Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and Disney’s Contemporary Resort are both excellent choices of accommodation for your holiday. Their proximity to Magic Kingdom Park can’t be beat, they have delicious dining options, and you can hop aboard the Resort Monorail to get to EPCOT and Magic Kingdom Park in a jiffy. You can’t go wrong no matter which you choose!

    There is not a way to know ahead of time which room you will be assigned at your Disney Resorts Collection hotel. Rooms are randomly assigned at check in, according to the category of room you booked. You have the option of visiting the Front Desk to check in when you arrive. If you do this, you can always request to stay in a recently renovated room, though there is no guarantee your request can be accommodated. No matter which room you end up staying in, you’re sure to be swept away by the magic at your home away from home.

    I hope this information proves useful, Lisa. If you think of anything else we can help you with before your arrival, don’t hesitate to stop by again. Have a magical day!

    Think happy thoughts,
