While on our vacation we did ended up checking out a few other resorts. The first one we checked out was the Contemporary Resort. We just hopped on the monorail from Magic Kingdom and went for a ride.
The Contemporary Resort is known for the monorail running thru the middle of the resort. Back in the day before my mother had kinds or was married (over 34 years ago) she went to Disney every year with her girlfriends and stayed here. I honestly wasn't to impressed. I don't know what I expected but I expected more. It would be nice to stay here though with the close, quick access to Magic Kingdom and Epcot. I would stay here.
Another resort we checked out was Grand Floridian. It was amazing. It has so much elegance and class, was very warm and welcoming, and made you think of a relaxing vacation. (A would be amazing to have a wedding here, just saying)
The one big thing I noticed was they posted how long the wait was until the next bus was coming for each Disney park. I believe that is the difference between a deluxe resort and a moderate resort.
We also took a boat and the monorail and saw the outside of some other resorts. They were Bay Lake Tower, Boardwalk, Beach Club, Polynesian, Yacht Club, and Swan and Dolphin Hotel.
I wish we would have had more time to check out other resorts such as:
- Old Key West
- Polynesian (was under construction)
- Animal Kingdom Lodge
Where do you stay at Disney? or where would you like to stay?
