Disney's Contemporary Resort

4600 N. World Dr., Walt Disney World, Florida, 32830, United States

You're paying for location at this sleek, modern, luxury resort next to the Magic Kingdom, as the monorail runs right through the lobby, making park hopping a breeze, and offering quick respite for families seeking relief from the midday heat. Rooms in the main tower (pricier) offer great views, including nightly fireworks and lighted boat parade. Bay Lake Tower offers one- and two-bedroom villas. For the fireworks, or a spectacular sunset view, at least one dinner at the California Grill (on the 15th floor of the main tower) is worth the tab. Perfect for families with youngsters eager to rub elbows with Mickey, the Contemporary also welcomes those on romantic getaways, and corporate travelers.
