Disney’s Contemporary Resort is just one Monorail stop or short stroll away from the Magic Kingdom.
In fact, the Monorail goes directly through the A-frame Contemporary tower, making it a very easy destination for trying out its terrific dining destinations, whether the Contemporary is your “home resort” or not.
