We have all been wondering and speculating about what is going on behind all of those scrims lining each floor of the main building of Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
Well, Walt Disney World has just shared the first look – behind the scrims – at the lengthy refurbishment that’s happening! And that Incredibles theming we’ve been hearing about has been confirmed!
Walt Disney Imagineering is “enhancing the retro-modern aesthetic evoking Tomorrowland … with a dash of something Incredible, too”, take a look!
As you can see, these rooms will blend a sleek Monorail motif with some favorite characters from Pixar Animation Studios’ “Incredibles” films, including Jack-Jack, Frozone and Edna Mode. New custom artwork in guest rooms and along guest corridors will be modern, futuristic and oh so stylish, dahling, complementing the resort’s architecture while putting the Supers’ powers on display.
In the lobby, you’ll soon see a collection of modern art pieces as well as historical, behind-the-scenes photographs of Disney’s Contemporary Resort in development and under construction. The resort’s lobby restaurant, The Wave… of American Flavors, will also soon close to make way for a reimagined dining experience in time for the Walt Disney World 50th anniversary celebration. And once the tower guest rooms are complete, work will begin on the rooms inside the Garden Wing out on the shore of Bay Lake.
Here’s what you’ll see in those Garden Wing rooms!
In the lobby, we will soon see a collection of modern art pieces as well as historical, behind-the-scenes photographs of Disney’s Contemporary Resort in development and under construction.
Beginning July 16, much of the first-floor lobby will be closed while it undergoes refurbishment. Many of the guest services that are available in the lobby area will remain open such as the elevators, escalators, restrooms and pathways to the Convention Center and bus transportation, the front desk will temporarily relocate to the second floor of the resort. Once complete in late September, Contemporary’s lobby will feature an enhanced check-in experience offering an open, free-flowing layout with enhanced seating locations.
The changes taking place at this resort are the latest example of enhancements being made as Walt Disney World prepares for “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” which begins on October 1, 2021, in honor of its 50th anniversary.
