Disney’s Contemporary Resort VIP Top Tips

 

Resort

 

This section is sponsored by the Disney experts at The Magic for Less Travel, Authorized Disney Vacation Planner

If you eat early at the California Grill, you can return later with your receipt to watch the Magic Kingdom Wishes fireworks from the roof. They turn down the lights and pipe in the music…very romantic.

I like that there are two separate check-ins for both Contemporary and Bay Lake Tower. Also, it’s important to note that you cannot use the pool at Bay Lake Tower unless you’re staying at Bay Lake Tower and only Disney Vacation Club members can access the Top of the World Lounge. One of my favorite spots to watch Wishes is on the big verandah off of the Grand Canyon Concourse.

Contempo Cafe is a great counter service spot with tasty desserts.

There is boat transportation to Wilderness Lodge and Fort Wilderness Resort.

Rooms with a view of Bay Lake also have a great sunrise view.
