Disney’s Contemporary Resort was actually the second resort opened at Walt Disney World. This popular resort resides on the monorail line and is the closest resort to Disney’s Magic Kingdom park. If you have little ones, I highly recommend staying close to Magic Kingdom because 1) this is the favorite park of many little ones and 2) you can quickly and easily get back to the resort for a mid-morning nap and at the end of the night.
Disney’s Contemporary Resort has a .9 mile jogging trail around the resort. While .9 miles isn’t that long, you don’t have to stick to the trail. You can run up to the resort boat launch area, explore Bay Lake Tower, run near the pools and get a great view of Cinderella Castle.
