We've booked a MK view tower room & I've requested a high floor, odd numbered room. My kids have autism and have a major love affair with the monorail!!
...the odd room number is for me!! (I've already called dibs on the bed closest to the window!!)

My kids are 13 and 11.. we're also bringing my daughter's 13 year old friend.

It's our very first stay at the Contemporary...
Anyone have suggestions for us???
The July recreation activities calendar hasn't been posted yet on the Mouse for Less site. What a wonderful view your kids are going to have for their first visit at the CR.

I'm sure you already know about the walkway to the MK and that you're the first picked-up and dropped off on the buses. If your kids love the monorail, the Contempo Cafe is a great place to sit, relax and watch the monorail. There is also an area outside on the 4th floor Concourse with benches near BLT that you and your kids can watch the monorail:



Sea Raycers are lots of fun. My DD13 loves driving one on her own now. Maybe the kids could do that or you can take the boat over to FW and do some activities there or at WL. Lots to see and do in and around the CR. Have a great trip!




Here is the July movie schedule from Build a Better Mouse Trip:


Disney's Contemporary Resort Outdoor Movie Schedule - July.

Movie shown under the Skyway Bridge at 9:00PM

Sundays - The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Mondays - Up
Tuesdays - National Treasure
Wednesdays - National Treasure: Book of Secrets
Thursdays - The Princess & the Frog(See our Princess Page)
Fridays - High School Musical
Saturdays - The Secret World of Arrietty

Your kids are sure to enjoy this wonderful free activity at the Contemporary Resort Hotel. This program is open to all guests of Walt Disney World, not just to those staying at the resort. Refreshment stand and restrooms available. Check with a Cast Member or the resort recreation calendar to confirm show times. These movies are projected on to a large portable screen under the sky bridge between the towers.

Thanks, so much, WDWKOOK!!

We have a breakfast ADR at Chef Mickey's and we will definitely have to have a few lunches at Contempo... is it set up so that maybe we could eat out on that 4th floor observation deck or is that at the opposite end??

I have already reserved a tandem parasailing flight for my DD13 & I!! Her other love is looking out on the world (not just WDW) from the highest point she can reach. Watching the monorail from that high will be the ultimate EVERYTHING for her

My DS11 isn't so wild about heights, so we'll rent a couple of water mice after our flight... DD'sBFF13 driving w DD13 and me with DS11.. Would he be old enough to drive with me in the boat??

We will also be taking the boat over to WL for dinner at WCC on our first night, before evening EMH at MK!!

Are there things to do at FW close enough to the boat docks that we can accomplish in an hour or so?? If so, we should have time to go before our 6:25 ADR

Yay!! So ready for this!!!

Oh that sounds perfect, just wondering do I have to ask upon check in for the extra bed linens or do they have them already in the room?

Enjoy your vacation we are right behind you, in 4 weeks we will be there!!!

Sounds like I need to start getting an order together for Garden Grocer if they close requests out.

We just rented DVC points to stay at BLT next June. I know it's just under a year, but we are super excited!

It is at the opposite end, near the MK and CC is next to Chef Mickey's which is closer to the Garden Wing, but it's only about a one minute or less walk to the door. You'll have a tray, so you could certainly take your food out there. It might be rather windy though and I don't know if the birds would be bothersome.

Your plans sound great! What lucky kids

Thank you, but to me, anything with the monorail in it looks great. In fact, I waited until it passed to take that because the photo just didn't seem right without the monorail in it.

Is this your first time renting points? We rented points last November for BLT and became hooked. So in Ferbuary we closed on a BLT DVC resale contract. Be warned that you might fall in love

Monorail is great. Or, maybe it's Bay Lake. Or, maybe it's Cinderella's castle. Or, .....

Yes, this is our first time. That is funny as I am afraid of that same thing happening.

Hi! My mom is visiting contemporary in August and has a standard tower room bay view. What if any room requests should she make?
Thanks for your help!

Ahh, my favorite WDW room view. If she requests a high floor, she'll have a more commanding view of Bay Lake and Epcot/FW/WL over to the right. If she thinks the 'celebration song' from Chef Mickey's might bother her, she could request a room away from Chef Mickey's. Finally, if she would like to sit in bed and look out towards FW/Epcot/Garden Wing, rather than towards BLT, she could request an odd numbered room.

I hope she has a great vacation!
