Disney has shared a first look at the reimagining of Disney’s Contemporary Resort as Walt Disney World continues to prepare for its 50th anniversary starting on October 1, 2021.



What’s Happening:

  • Disney Parks Blog has shared a first look at the new room designs coming to Disney’s Contemporary Resort which features a retro-modern aesthetic evoking Tomorrowland and Disney Pixar’s The Incredibles.
  • As part of the work being done, the first-floor lobby will be closing on July 16, with the front desk temporarily relocated to the second floor. Work is expected to be complete by late September on the lobby enhancements.
  • The rooms will feature new custom artwork based on the film franchise including Jack-Jack, Frozone, and Edna Mode.
  • Once work is done on the tower guest rooms, the reimagining will begin for rooms inside the Garden Wing.

  • The lobby will feature a collection of modern art pieces along with behind-the-scenes photos of Disney’s Contemporary Resort under construction.
  • The Wave… of American Flavors will also be reimagined for a new dining experience ready in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th celebration.

First Floor Lobby Closing July 16:

  • As part of the reimagining, the guest lobby and check-in experience will be receiving updates as well.
  • Starting July 16, much of the first-floor lobby will be closed with the front desk temporarily relocating to the second floor of the resort.
  • Many of the Guest services in the lobby will remain open including elevators, escalators, restrooms, and pathways to the convention center and bus transportation.
  • Work on the lobby is expected to be completed by late September and feature an enhanced check-in experience with an open, free-flowing layout and enhanced seating locations.

  • Refurbishment work had begun earlier this year with rooms being covered as seen walking through the main concourse while the gift shop, monorail, and food locations continue to welcome Guests.
