    We are staying at the Contemporary for Thanksgiving week. Our room is booked for the Garden Wing - Garden View. Any suggestions on which rooms are better - ground floor or 3rd floor? Also, where in the Garden Wing is best to stay? 2 teens and a 4yr old

    Hello, Kathleen,

    My goodness, you are getting closer and closer to your trip and stay at Disney's Contemporary Resort, which is such a fun resort with the monorail going through it; it is nearly an attraction by itself!  I also love the proximity to the Magic Kingdom.  Being able to walk back and forth to the park is a real treat and a wonderful option to take a break from the crowds. 

    Since you are staying in the Garden Wing of the resort, I'd recommend a ground floor room so you can enjoy the patio.  Most of the balconies on the upper floors of the wing are more of a token and not really usable as they are not big enough to hold chairs. Of these rooms, The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World 2015 recommends avoiding rooms that end with numbers 52 through 70 as these have views of the parking lot. If you'd like to visit the website and search for View of Disney's Contemporary Resort, you can actually explore the views from different rooms. It really helps to give you an idea of the possible views you could have, and some of them are quite lovely of the gardens. 

    Wishing you a trip with many unforgettable memories!  Please let us know if we can help with any further questions. -Kara
