What’s Happening With Outer Rim At Disney’s Contemporary Resort?
Though a good selection of restaurants at Walt Disney World Resorts have reopened for business, for some it is NOT business as usual. One such example is the Outer Rim at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
Located on the fourth floor of the Contemporary, the Outer Rim was previously a great place to lounge, enjoy a cocktail and watch the world pass by: The official Disney description reads, “Admire stunning views of Bay Lake with specialty cocktails before—or after—dinner. Try a Piña CoLAVA, Red Stag Lemonade, Blue “Glow-tini” or more! A full bar menu is also available.”
However, as you can see from the screenshot below, this is one of the locations within the resort that has not reopened for business.
As a matter of fact, since Disney’s Contemporary Resort opened last month, this location has remained closed.
With social distancing in place and a concerned over gathering spots like bars and lounges in the state of Florida its not surprising that this location remains on hiatus.
As a matter of fact, during previous visits to the Contemporary we noticed that the Outer Rim area had been completely partitioned off to guests. Yet, during our visit today to dine at Chef Mickey’s we noticed that these had been taken down? Does that mean that the Outer Rim will reopen soon? Sadly not.
According to staff, the Outer Rim IS NOT reopening any time soon but rather is being used as an overspill area since Chef Mickey’s continues to be a popular dining experience as is located just across the way. So unfortunately guests at the Contemporary will no be able pop over to the Outer Rim for a delectable cocktail anytime soon.
It remains to be seen how many of Disney’s resort lounges will actually reopen and when this will happen. However, as lovers of the occasional Walt Disney World Resort cocktail, this is a story that we’ll be following closely so keep checking in with MickeyBlog for further news and updates.
