Review: Lunch at Disney World’s Contempo Cafe in Contemporary Resort

It’s no secret we love Contempo Cafe. Located in Disney’s Contemporary Resort at Walt Disney World — and just a monorail stop away from the Magic Kingdom — Contempo Cafe is a quick service spot that consistently serves some of our favorite fast eats. We’ve long craved the Pot Roast here, but with flatbreads and burgers and desserts galore, you and your crew can’t go wrong.

On this visit, everything was totally awesome. It makes for some great eating and some fun blogging, if I’m being honest. First up: the Contempo Smokehouse Burger. This beauty (yup, a burger can be beautiful) is an Angus Chuck Burger topped with Smoked Bacon Marmalade, Cheddar Cheese, and a huge Onion Ring. There’s a Brioche Bun holding it all together, too.

The NEW Western Dog at Refreshment Corner in Disneyland Resort!!

In case you were wondering, we are still making our way through the extensive, ever-evolving Pixar Fest food, and we’re still loving every minute of it.

Today we’re at Refreshment Corner — often referred to as Coke Corner (which we like because alliteration) — and we’re digging into a hot dog that’s got so much good stuff on it that we already want another.

1. Experience the Magic Kingdom Flag Retreat

This moving Magic Kingdom experience requires no Fastpass+ — just a desire to participate in a formal flag lowering ceremony held at the Magic Kingdom flagpole in front of the Walt Disney Railroad Station. The ceremony includes fanfare by trumpets, the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, and the singing of God Bless America and the Star Spangled Banner accompanied by the philharmonic.

After the lowering and folding of the flag, a guest veteran is handed the flag and a short procession up Main Street, U.S.A., is accompanied by a medley of U.S. military songs. This event takes place daily, so check with Guest Services or the Times Guide to find out when to watch!

Located on Sunset Boulevard, Rosie’s All-American Cafe at Walt Disney World’s Disney’s Hollywood Studios is a counter service joint serving up — you guessed it! — American style eats amidst World War II-inspired decor.
