I stayed Contemporary every year as a kid and loved seeing the monorail and have chef mickey there. We used to visit Poly and I always said one day I would stay there. This year we are and I can't wait. I know it's dated but I don't mind that since I went in the early 90's and remember it that way. We visit contemporary every year we go now and it just doesn't have enough themeing for me. I am one of those that thinks it feels like a conference center. It used to have a much stronger themeing back in the 80's/90's. But everyone is different so you have to consider not only the themeing but other aspects of it. The only pro Contemporary has over Poly in my opinion is their food court. It's great!
