For our 10th anniversary part of our celebration was a stay at Disney’s Contemporary Resort in a wheelchair accessible room for New Year’s Eve. This room is on the Atrium Club level (the 12th floor) but it is pretty much the same as the other wheelchair accessible rooms with roll in showers located in the tower (both Bay Lake and Magic Kingdom views.) This will also give you a good idea of what the rooms in the Garden Wing are like as well.
The hallway leading to the room was a good width and the carpet wasn’t too thick.
When you enter the room you’ll find a small hallway with two closets and space for the coffee maker and refrigerator. One of the closets is designed for wheelchair users and has a lower shelf and place to hang your clothes. There is also a nice space in the room to put out the luggage rack if you just want to live out of your suitcase like me.
The sink was easy to use and roll under. It’s not very deep but I didn’t have any issues. The mirror wasn’t usable but there is a make up mirror and the vanity is well lit.
The shower is also very nice. The bench is close to everything and I just had to have my husband lower the shower head for me.
Like a lot of the roll in showers at Disney Resorts it didn’t drain very well so the bathroom floor can get wet. There are plenty of towels to use so we just put down a few extra.
The rooms have two double beds plus a queen sized sleeper sofa. There was plenty of space between both beds and the bed and desk area so either would work. There are also two night stands, plenty of outlets, and usb chargers that were a nice plus.
I also liked that there are two lights on the headboard that you can turn on and off from the bed. The room also features an automatic door button in the room. If it’s not working just make a call and someone will come by to switch it on.
The sleeper sofa is nice but I don’t know how comfortable it is for sleeping. There is a shelf that is under the television that is good for storage. The bottom part also lights up. It was too bright for us to use as a nightlight but it looks cool. 🙂
We had a theme park view room so we could see the Magic Kingdom and the Seven Seas Lagoon. The balcony doesn’t look that wide but there was plenty of space to roll out and enjoy the sights and sounds. (You can hear the train whistle!) The door was also easy to open and since it’s not a slider it was easy to get in and out.
Since we were staying on New Year’s Eve we were able to see both Holiday Wishes and Fantasy in the Sky. The view was amazing since there are so many perimeter fireworks.
We won’t be splurging on this room again anytime soon but I would definitely stay at Disney’s Contemporary Resort again. The location is great and while the theme may not be for everyone the room is really nice and set up great for a wheelchair user.
