Ahead of Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary this October, Walt Disney Imagineering is hard at work on a reimagining of Disney’s Contemporary Resort — and now we have our first look at one of the updated guest rooms.
Currently, all nine floors of guest rooms in the main tower are being completely refurbished with new décor that evokes Pixar’s “The Incredibles” blended with a sleek Monorail motif. New custom artwork in guest rooms and along the guest corridors will expand on this modern style as it puts Supers like Jack-Jack, Frozone, and Mr. Incredible on display.
In the lobby will reside a collection of modern art pieces and historical behind-the-scenes photographs of Disney’s Contemporary Resort in development and under construction. The lobby’s restaurant, The Wave… of American Flavors, will also be closing soon to transform into a reimagined dining experience in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary. Once the tower guest rooms are completely refurbished, work will begin on the rooms located in the Garden Wing.
More details on this update will be shared in the coming months as the 50th anniversary celebration approaches on Oct. 1.
