Who wouldn’t love spending their magical vacation at the Contemporary Resort located off the monorail at Magic Kingdom? This modern resort has so much to offer guests. From spectacular views of Magic Kingdom’s fireworks to extraordinary dining opportunities, this resort will go beyond your expectations of a Disney resort. Accommodations can be made in the A-frame Contemporary tower or at the nearby Garden Wing.  Bay Lake Tower is a 15 story building that was built as part of Disney’s Vacation Club. Walt Disney World’s monorail stops inside the Contemporary resort where many guests like to eat at the all famous Chef Mickey’s. There are other amazing dining restaurants at the Contemporary Resort. California Grill and Contempo Café have amazing reviews as well.
