(Con)temporary Maddness!

Disney's Contemporary resort is, in my opinion, the coolest resort. I also think that it is the most luxurious. It is located in the Magic Kingdom area. That means you could get a room with an awesome view of Space Mountain or Cinderella's Castle!! The monorail goes right through the resort, so transportation to the Magic Kingdom is easy! All of those things a really cool, but my favorite thing about the contemporary resort is the 90 foot mural. It was created by artist Mary Blair, whp also created desgins in Tomarrowland and It's a Small World. I remember riding the monorail through the resort. (Unfortenately we were not staying there) and I saw the mural. The colors were so bright and cheery. It was pure Disney. It made me think happy, and feel happy. I haven't been to Disney in awhile, but that was something that always stood out to me.

The rooms were recently referbished. The look now is very modern, with sleek lines and calming colors. They are so pretty! I wish I could just take one and stick in my hosue! lol And the bathrooms! B-E-A-UTIFUL! All of the rooms were amazing....and there there were the prices. Prices range from $280 to $2000 a night! Eep! Well...a girl can dream......

The Contemporary resort also features two famous restauant. The California Grill and Chef Mickey's. Chef Mickey's is a character dining buffet restauaunt. It looks like so much fun! I have always wanted to participate in character dining, and this looks awesome! Even the Michey mouse shaped waffles are cute! What a great way to start the day!

The contempary's other featured dining option is the California Grill. It is a super modern and has amazing views. Cinderella's Castle, Seven Sea's Lagoon, take your pick. This is one of the top places to see the fireworks in the Magic Kingdom. And hopefully, one day soon, I will be able to have the pleasure of dining there!
