    Thank you very much for the insight, Dave! I’ll take a look at the other resorts and keep checking back to see if the other rooms open up at Contemporary.

    Hi, Dave!
    Thanks for all your work on this site! My family (83, 80, 48, 46, 44, 28, 4) will be visiting WDW the week of Jan 30th. We rescheduled because of covid, and had originally booked Contemporary. The price has since jumped (the cheaper rooms are all booked I guess), so we’re trying to find an alternative. We’ve stayed at Poly and GF before, but want to try a new resort. We value convenience of location, so we were looking at Beach Club or Boardwalk. The 80 y.o. can walk fine, but we don’t want to be on crowded buses all day. Any thoughts on the resorts? Also, do you have any experience with the possibility that rooms will open back up at Contemporary? It’s still our first choice, but it’s tough to justify the cost.

      Hi Shannon. I am guessing–there’s no official announcement on this–that as the main tower rooms at the Contemporary come out of refurbishment, that the lower-priced Garden Wing rooms will be next. If true, this would explain the absence of lower-cost rooms there.

      If you have not stayed since the Skyliner opened, the Beach Club is worth a second look, as you can now take the Skyliner to the Studios, avoiding the walk or boat there. Also worth a look–though very pricey–is Riviera, with Skyliner service to both Epcot and HS. Lastly, worth noting is that Poly rooms have a new Moana theme, and there is now a walkway between Grand Floridian and Magic Kingdom
