I've never taken a taxi to the Contemporary, but we have gone from Pop to the Poly for a 7:30 breakfast at Kona, and that was around $20(theyre close to each other). Pricey, but worth it to me for the peace of mind and not being late.

I got ours at the dollar store. Can't beat that!

The average cab ride anywhere on property is about $20.00 with tip. It's been a year or so since I've taken a cab from Pop to Contemporary but I would say $25 worst case scenario. The amount of people doesn't matter, just go out to the CMs where ME drops off and tell them you need a cab. They will call them, they are usually in the parking lot waiting so when I say call them I mean they will whistle and wave them forward LOL! It's simple and you will need to give yourself about 30 minutes to get in the cab and to the contemporary.

I took a cab from Poly to Pop via McDonalds (lot's of lapu lapu's had been consumed ) and it was $28 plus tip. I'd say $20-$25.

We took a cab from The Contemporary to POP last year after seeing Wishes and I believe it was $21 and then our tip brought it to a total of $25. As others have said, just let the concierge desk know when you would like a cab to arrive to pick you up.

From around either 11pm or midnight until either 5 or 6am, they don't necessarily have cabs on property sitting there waiting to provide service. They can call and have one there for you in a matter of usually 10 to 15 minutes and many even quicker...but it won't be sitting at the hotel like during the day. Cabs aren't on premises 24/7 because there just isn't enough middle of the night demand to justify having them sit at the hotel. But in general, unless there is a crazy high demand for cabs at the exact time you want one, there should be one there at the hotel. Even if the demand is high, they can call for one and it won't take long. I must say they had to radio for mine. The driver was very professional (safe driver & polite) and the car was VERY clean (I was impressed!) and comfortable.
I took one to the Grand Floridian in March and it was $18 before tip. I believe the Grand would be a slight bit further than the Contemp. So I would expect the bill should be about the same.
Good Luck and have a great trip!!

You may have better luck setting up transpiration through mears, I set up for car service from pop to animal kingdom lodge, it was a flat rate of $14

I already asked this but no one answered, sorry to be a pest, does Disney still send out welcome packets in the mail before check in?

I think it depends on why you call a "welcome packet". You do get (what we call) Mickey Mail which is all our information if we have a package. It includes a paper book, with coupons, dining info, room info, etc. Our package included luggage tags and we got those as well. Is that was you were talking about?

This might be better! I have heard you can request a car with a carseat, is that correct?

Yeah exactly what I'm talking about. Mickey mail sounds better but yeah like a packet with details on your upcoming trip. When do you usually get this Mickey mail?
