The Contemporary is beautiful and a really awesome hotel. When we arrived, we were told that we would be staying in the "Garen" section, which i snot actually in the master or Main building. This was never relayed and after a lot of complaining and having to sacrifice one of the two nights we stayed, I made it into the main hotel. Very sad. Disney has the nerve to charge 25 bucks each day for parking in the hotel you paid for! Can you imagine? Property is beautiful but check, and double-check all fees and that you are staying in the CONTEMPORARY and not some "Garden or WIng!" Unfair! Very Hard Earned cash not met with fair or common practices.

Check Disney's Ridiculous Mask Requirements 1st
Do not come to Disney until Covid is over. The staff at the parks and the Contemporary Resort are rude and they harass you about wearing your mask completely covering your entire nose. If it slips down toward the bottom of your nose even a little, they say something. You can't take your mask off to talk on your phone, take pictures or even just to take a break and breath. You can only wear one type of mask and no other, so if you have a mask approved by the rest of the world and it's comfortable and allows you to breath ok, Disney forces you to wear theirs or you have to leave. The parks and this hotel are suffering low attendance, probably because their mask policy sucks, which meant the park and hotel were pretty empty. Despite this, the ticket prices to Magic Kingdom and room rates are still the same as well as the lines for the rides. The social distancing coupled with allowing only 1/2 to even 1/4 capacity on every ride causes the lines to be as long as when the park is at full capacity. To top it all off, the hours have been reduced. Do yourself a favor and go to any other amusement park or wait until things go back to normal or you will be frustrated.
