    When staying at the Contemporary, how long is the walk to the Magic Kingdom?

    Hi there, Sheila, and welcome to planDisney!

    You are in for a truly “Incredible” stay at Disney’s Contemporary Resort in just a couple of months. Not only will you be a hop, skip, and a jump away from Magic Kingdom Park, but the Disney Monorail travels right through this iconic A-frame Disney Resorts Collection hotel. This means that you could be relaxing by the pool one moment and snacking on a DOLE Whip at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort or getting a spa treatment at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa moments later. 

    The walk from Disney’s Contemporary Resort to Magic Kingdom Park is just about a half-mile. If you take it slow, this could take around 15 minutes from the hotel lobby to the Mickey-shaped entry points at the theme park. However, I’m usually hustling between these two locations and it takes me between 8 and 10 minutes. Before you get to Magic Kingdom Park, you have your own convenient pit stop for a security check, so you don’t have to wait in a super long queue to check your belongings.

    AN EXTRA GEM: In the My Disney Experience App, there is a nifty feature where you can see the distances and directions between almost any two points at Walt Disney World Resort. Use the search icon, type the name of any location, and then select “Get Directions.” So, if you get lost, you can always find your way with this tool. My friends Nimmy and Lizzie can also take you on a deep dive about all-things-Disney transportation on this episode of the planDisney Podcast

    Sheila, you are going to love staying at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, one of the original Resort hotels on property. Its history is amazing, but like its name, it’s nothing short of contemporary. If you have any other questions about your upcoming visit, give us a holler here at planDisney. 

    Magic always,
