We’ve been discussing the pros and cons of certain rooms at Disney’s Contemporary Resort on the blog lately (tower vs. garden wing, theme park view vs. Bay Lake view), but one of the very common frequently asked questions we receive here at DisneyContemporary.com is about the actual room numbers at the resort.
While Disney rarely honors requests for specific room numbers, it’s always good to know what bank of rooms you’re hoping for. That way, when you check in upon arrival, you can let the Cast Member helping you know the general section of the resort you’d prefer. General requests, e.g. “close to the Magic Kingdom,” “close to the elevators,” “high floor,” are good, but sometimes knowing more information about your desired resort section can be helpful.
That’s where this handy-dandy little chart comes in! Listed here are all of the room numbers in the Contemporary Resort along with their placement in the hotel itself. In this diagram, Bay Lake would be at the top of the image, Seven Seas Lagoon would be at the bottom of the image, and the Magic Kingdom would be to the left of the image (click image to enlarge):
According to this, here are the numbers to know:
- Higher Floor in Tower: In tower room numbers, the floor is indicated by the first two numbers. For example, the 5th floor rooms all start with the numbers “41” while the 14th floor rooms all start with the numbers “49.” The highest floor that isn’t a club level or concierge level floor is 11; rooms on the 11th floor begin with “47.”
- Close View of the Magic Kingdom: The room numbers on the Magic Kingdom (theme park view) side of the resort end with the string of numbers between “25”-“48,” with “25” being closer to the Garden Wing and “48” being closer to the Magic Kingdom.
- Far From Pool Noise: If you’re staying on the Bay Lake side of the tower, you might prefer to be farther from the pool noise. Because the pool is situated between the Tower and the Garden Wing, you’ll want to be farther to the left of the line of rooms. Room numbers on the Bay Lake side of the Tower end with the string of numbers between “01”-“24,” with “01” being closer to the pool.
- Close to the Lake/Pool: In the Garden Wing, the section closest to Bay Lake has room numbers that begin with “61,” “62,” or “63,” with the second number corresponding to the floor level. In the section closest to the Tower, room numbers begin with “51,” “52,” or “53,” again with the second number corresponding to the floor level. To be closest to the Lake, you’ll want to be sure to get a room number that begins with a “61.” To be close to the pool, the room numbers that make the most sense are “5105”-“5127,” and “6123”-“6130.”
