The iconic Contemporary Resort was one of Walt Disney World's original hotels, and features a unique A-Frame design. It was constructed by the United States Steel Corporation, which hoped to prove the viability of a new technique using modular rooms that were put together off-site and then slotted into place. The approach proved to be a near-disaster, with Disney subsequently buying out its partner. The resort remains popular, though, offering stunning views over the Magic Kingdom and the convenience of a monorail line that runs right through it. The headline restaurant at the resort (and one of Walt Disney World's most popular dining locations) is the California Grill, which is one of the best places to view the Magic Kingdom's Wishes fireworks display from. Other options include The Wave (which serves American-style dishes), Chef Mickey's (a buffet restaurant), the Contempo Cafe (serving fast food options) and The Sand Bar (located next to the main pool).
