    Planning our next trip for March 2017. We have 2 girls (8 & 11). Always wanted to stay at GF. Is it truly worth the extra money to stay there or is Contempo just as fabulous and magical?

    Welcome Tiffany! Thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    This is a very good question. You are considering two amazing Disney Resort Hotels. I am a big fan of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, I love to take beautiful pictures of the lobby and enjoy the Grand Floridian Society Orchestra. Besides, they have amazing restaurant options.
    But, when I am traveling with my little daughter, I prefer staying at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. It is very close to Magic Kingdom Park, we can have a great view from our room, especially if we are staying at a theme park view room, swimming pools are great and my daughter loves their water playground. And Chef Mickey’s is right there, we can easily access my family’s favorite Character Dining Experience!
    Hope this helps your planning. Let us know if you have further questions.
    Have a magical day!

I am totally a Disney maniac! Since childhood, I have been a big fan of all things Disney, especially the theme parks. I have never visited any other place that gives me the same feeling that I get at the Walt Disney World Resort. You can become a child again there! With so much to explore, I would love to help you plan your next Walt Disney World vacation and discover all the fantasy and magic this special place has to offer. Learn More About Gina
