Time to put on your super suit as The Incredibles are taking over Disney’s Contemporary Resort. If you recall, back during the 2019 D23 Expo, an eagle-eyed fan spotted some Incredibles-themed carpet outside some of the guest rooms inside the resort, prompting fans that an announcement would be made during the expo. After a couple years of speculation, Disney has officially made the long-awaited announcement that the Contemporary Resort is indeed being completely refurbished with new Incredibles-theming.
The re-imagining process is currently underway in all guest rooms located on the nine floors in the tower, as you can see from the showcase of photos below. Disney noted that renovations in the Garden Wing (set alongside Bay Lake) will occur once the tower rooms are complete.
Disney’s Contemporary Resort has always lacked some Disney magic for us. Yes, the monorail goes through the resort, and there is fun character dining; however, the modern simple lobby and guest rooms never made us want to book a stay. However, with the new Incredibles-re-theming, we honestly cannot wait to book a stay! When you think of the 60’s styling of Disney’s Contemporary Resort, there’s no other Disney/Pixar franchise that fits better than The Incredibles.
Disney did note that starting in mid-July, the main lobby of The Contemporary will be closed as the main floor re-imagining process is set to take place (the temporary check-in desk will be located on the second floor during this timeframe). Not only will the new lobby have a collection of modern art, but there will be several historical photographs of The Contemporary Resort under construction — which Disney fans are sure to love.
The lobby’s restaurant, The Wave, will also close temporarily as it undergoes its transformation, with Disney gearing up for ‘The World’s Most Magical Celebration’ beginning October 1, 2021, in honor of Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary.
