A Perfect Day Off at Disney’s Contemporary Resort

2023-12-07T10:25:10-05:00November 7, 2023|Disney World, Resorts|0 Comments

A Perfect Day Off at Disney’s Contemporary Resort If you’ve ever visited Walt Disney World in Florida, you know it can be a lot of fun, but it’s also an EXHAUSTING vacation. A typical day probably begins with a 6:30 a.m. wake-up call and ends with bedtime around midnight, with about 7-10 miles of walking in between! By the third or fourth day, the whole family can start feeling a bit (understandably) crabby, but I have a solution! Add a day to your hotel stay, but don’t add a day to your park tickets, and take a Day Off in [...]

Since reopening in July, many guests have made their way back to Walt Disney World to a new kind of magic. I had a trip planned for April 2020, which was canceled due to the closure, so I was very excited to get back to the action myself! Since I’m a Florida resident (for the next few months anyway), it was easy to plan a quick 3-night trip back down to Orlando at the end of September. I wanted to share my review of Disney’s Contemporary Resort, new safety policies and procedures at the parks and resorts, dining procedures, and [...]

The Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom monorail loop runs along the shores of Seven Seas Lagoon. Along this loop are three of Walt Disney World’s most iconic resort hotels: The Polynesian Village Resort, The Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and The Contemporary Resort.

The Polynesian Village Resort was one of the original Walt Disney World resorts opening on October 1, 1971. This resort has [...]

I recently had the opportunity to dine at the newly refurbished California Grill located at Disney's Contemporary Resort. I had been looking forward to dining at California Grill but was unable to get a reservation after some plans unexpectedly changed and I needed to cancel my original reservation.
