This will be our second trip to Disney with our three boys. Actually the first trip for our youngest, who is 4. We stayed at Port Orleans last time but this time decided to take the plunge and spend the extra money to stay at a resort on the monorail. My question is do you think it is worth the extra money to upgrade from a garden view room to a theme park view room? The idea of watching fireworks from our hotel room sounds magical but I wonder if it is really worth the money. What are your thoughts?
Dad’s it’s your money Answer
This is one of those answers where Dad can provide some information, but you have to make the decision for yourself.
For our family, we aren’t real big on views. We have never paid for an upgraded room anywhere. That being said, the Magic Kingdom view at the Contemporary is out of this world. But … the firework show is not the best. It’s all askew. Don’t get me wrong it’s still good, but the fireworks don’t explode over the castle. The shapes don’t look right because of the angle.
Is the Contemporary Resort theme park view worth the splurge? Not really, but it’s a great view. If you can afford it, go for it.
