    Can you still request a microwave in room at the Contemporary?

    Welcome to planDisney, Kaijah! We're glad you stopped by with your question!

    As a child growing up in the 70s, and an avid fan of the Jetsons TV show, I always marveled at the futuristic design of Disney's Contemporary Resort. I still love it's A-frame architecture and the way the monorail glides through the center. As a child, our trips were more budget-conscious, and we always stayed off property, so when I began traveling as an adult, this was the first resort I choose to stay at when we visited Walt Disney World, and we've been back many times since!

    I contacted Guest Services today and was told that microwaves are available as an in-room request. However, they are in limited supply and subject to availability at the time of check-in. You can't reserve one in advance, but contact housekeeping or the front desk when you arrive. There are also microwaves for guests to use located at the Contempo Café that are available 24 hours a day. Located on the 4th floor of the Grand Canyon Concourse (right next to Chef Mickey's), this quick-service eatery is known for their flatbreads and fantastic cupcakes; my favorite is the Cookies & Cream Monorail Cupcake!

    Here's a planDisney tip: Make sure to complete Online Check-in through your My Disney Experience account before your trip. This way, you'll receive text notifications with real-time updates, including when your room is ready and what your room number is! 

    I hope you have a magical stay, Kaijah! Please come back and see us again real soon!
