    we are planning a vacation with my husband(with parkinsons)my sons family ages 1 and 6 and my daughter to help with my husband and myself we want the contemporary for monorail any other suggestions for convience we are thinking of a 2 bdroom

    Hello Charlene and thanks for your question.  If you are looking for convenience, the Contemporary is a great choice. You will be located very close to Magic Kingdom making mid-day/anytime breaks very easy.   I'm not sure what your budget is, but if you can swing it, you may want to try and get 2 rooms in the tower.  Then, when you get off the monorail and down to the 4th floor, it's just a quick elevator ride up to your room.

    I don't know when you are planning on going but I quickly checked the cost for a 2 bedroom suite at the Contemporary and they are well over $1,000 per night.  I'm not sure about you, but that is definitely out of my budget!  You may want to consider getting 2 rooms next to each other, possibly with a connecting interior door. 

    Another option, would be to look at the cost of a 2 bedroom villa at Bay Lake Towers.  I quickly looked at the prices and depending on when you go, you can get a 2 bedroom for under $700 per night which will probably be cheaper than 2 rooms at the Contemporary.  Although beautiful, Bay Lake Tower isn't as convenient as the Contemporary as you will have to walk over to the Contemporary for the restaurants, shopping, access to monorail, etc.  But it may be worth a cost savings to you, especially if you leave your refrigerator stocked with the basics.  (There is a walkway that connects the two buildings.)

    I hope your vacation at the Contemporary if magical!  Diane
