    We are planning on staying at the Contemporary resort in March of next yr...any recommendations or advice and info about there??

    Hi Amanda,

    Let me start by saying that you have made a wonderful resort choice.  The Contemporary Resort has a prime location, within walking distance or short monorail ride from the Magic Kingdom.  If you plan on spending a lot of time at this park, travelling to and from will be incredibly convenient.  The Contemporary also has a number of outstanding dining options, including:

    • Chef Mickey's - which many feel is "the" quintessential character dining location
    • The Wave - a wonderful new restaurant with fresh, creative entrees and a fabulous wine list
    • California Grille- a signature restaurant that has one of (if not ) the best menus at Disney, and affords diners an opportunity to watch Wishes (the fireworks spectacular at the Magic Kingdom) from their tables.

    All of these restaurants are quite popular, so I would recommend making advanced dining reservations up to 180 days before you arrive. 

    By staying at a resort on the monorail line, you will also be able to visit and enjoy the Polynesian and Grand Floridian Resorts, as well as their wonderful restaurants easily.  Finally, Epcot is a short ride away on the monorail via a stop at the Ticket and Transportation Center.

    Have a wonderful trip!
