Disney’s Contemporary Resort receives breathtaking transformation
As Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary approaches, we’re starting to see a lot more changes fill the resort.
Not only are the parks gearing up for the celebration, the surrounding resorts are also making sure they’re at their best! The lobby of Disney’s Contemporary Resort has been undergoing renovations for a few months. The lobby is located on the first floor of the resort and also provides visitors with access to the Disney buses, which will take them to the parks and Disney Springs.
Recently the building walls fell from the lobby space, and it looks fantastic! Considering the Contemporary Resort is meant to look contemporary, a furniture update was badly needed. Now the lobby has a mid-century modern feel with a Mary Blair touch that makes us pale!

The first thing guests will see upon entering is a new mural, which also nods to the one on the hotel’s third floor.
The mural spans the entire lobby, with new sofas and matching furniture.
Next to the check-in desk, guests can also use the tables as a workstation or simply as a space to relax.

We also see that Steakhouse 71 is ready to open! This restaurant has taken over The Wave and will open on October 1. As you can see, the 71 logo looks a lot like the Contemporary Resort, which is a cool little touch.
The new lobby has a much more timeless feel, with hotel concept artwork framed throughout. This will surely give guests a feeling of luxury when they walk in and create a much better connection and flow throughout the resort when it comes to the theme, especially with the new wall design and new artwork.
With Disney’s Contemporary Resort just steps from Magic Kingdom, this is one of the most popular and coveted places for guests to stay while on the property!
