What You Need To Know About The Contemporary Lobby Refurbishment
First of all, the guests rooms at Disney’s Contemporary Resort are all being renovated in a new Incredibles theme. Disney revealed a sneak peek last week which you’ll find above.
But that’s not all when it comes to renovations. Disney also announced last week that the lobby area of the property will also be renovated from July 16 through September 2021.
Once completed the lobby will feature a collection of modern art pieces as well as historical, behind the scenes photographs of the Contemporary which seems fitting considering Disney World’s 50th Anniversary Celebration.
For those visit disneyworld.com you will get the above message on the Contemporary Resort landing page.
As part of the refurbishment Disney advised that they will be updating the lobby check-in experience.
Starting on July 16 most of the 1st floor lobby will be closed for refurbishment. However, guest services will not be impacted. By this I mean elevators, escalators, restrooms and the walkway to the Convention Center.
During this time the front desk will move to the resort’s second floor. Guests staying at the Contemporary Resort during this time of transition are advised to utilize Disney World’s mobile check-in and direct-to-room capabilities on your My Disney Experience app.
Once completed to coincide with Disney World’s anniversary celebration, guests can expect an enhanced check-in experience with a new free-flowing layout and updated seating.
In addition to the lobby “The Wave…of American Flavors” will be closed for a refurbishment and re-theming. Disney is remaining pretty tight-lipped regarding what diners might have in store. We’ll be paying close attention and promise to let you know as soon as we’ve heard more.
To our knowledge, popular dining locations Chef Mickey’s and California Grill will not be impacted by these changes.
Guests with reservations in the Garden Wing should note that once Disney completes the rooms in the main Tower building, they will be moving to the annex rooms.
So for those planning on staying our visiting the Contemporary, please be mindful that you may be able to hear construction and see scrims up around the Tower guest rooms while work is being carried out.
