I’ve never stayed in the Garden Wing… mainly because I think if I’m going to stay at the Contemporary, I might as well be in the main building. With other resorts, I am more lenient as to what building I stay, considering resorts like the GF and Poly are made up of multiple buildings. The Contemporary is most recognizable by the big A-frame structure, which is why I have decided that if I stay there, that’s where I’d want to stay.
I do prefer the prices of the Garden Wing, though. I have stayed in an outer building at the GF and did not find it a hassel to go to the main resort to use the monorail. The walk from the Garden Wings to the main buiilding does not look incredibly long. It’s also probably a lot quieter in the Garden Wings.
