Disney’s Contemporary Resort at Walt Disney World Resort was an opening day Resort on October 1, 1971. At the time, the Resort’s design was the height of modernism, with clean lines and bold splashes of color.
Over the years, of course, the Contemporary began to look a bit dated, so updates have been done — as have all Disney Resort hotels from time to time! Last year, Disney announced that Disney’s Contemporary Resort would be receiving some exciting room updates, and ever since, we’ve even seen massive tarps covering Guest rooms as construction has been ongoing.
Now, Disney has given fans a first look at how the reimagining of the rooms are coming along! Disney shared pictures of the new The Incredibles-inspired spaces — the Edna Mode pillow has us completely obsessed!
The sleek bathroom area in these new Guest rooms features subtle Incredibles touches, like the character artwork that can be seen in the mirror’s reflection!
Disney also gave Disney Park-goers a glimpse of the full room remodel at the Contemporary, and it’s truly nothing short of “Incredible”. With many fans divided on whether or not more characters should be added to Resorts, these subtle touches are a great way of paying homage to Pixar without being over-the-top.
Disney also shared information on Twitter:

Disney Parks Blog shared additional information about this exciting refurbishment that will bring beloved Pixar characters to the Contemporary for the first time:
Currently all nine floors of guest rooms in the tower are being completely refurbished, and here’s a first look at the new décor debuting this fall. As you can see, these rooms will blend a sleek Monorail motif with some favorite characters from Pixar Animation Studios’ “Incredibles” films, including Jack-Jack, Frozone and Edna Mode. New custom artwork in guest rooms and along guest corridors will be modern, futuristic and oh so stylish, dahling, complementing the resort’s architecture while putting the Supers’ powers on display.
Disney also noted that they started with the Contemporary’s Tower rooms and will be moving on to the Garden Wing rooms next.
Disney’s Contemporary Resort offers Guests a variety of perks. This Deluxe Resort is the only Walt Disney World hotel that the Resort Monorail actually passes through (you can see it inside the Resort in the image below!), which is a delightful treat for both Guests at the Resort and passengers on the popular theme park transportation system.
The official description of Disney’s Contemporary Resort reads:
Retreat to this ultra-modern Disney Resort hotel and discover award-winning dining, spectacular views and dazzling pools. Whether you’re staying in the iconic A-frame Contemporary tower or the nearby Garden Wing, you can walk to Magic Kingdom main gate or catch the Resort Monorail as it breezes through the tower. Inside, a 90-foot-tall mural by Disney Legend Mary Blair—responsible for the distinct look and feel of the “it’s a small world” attraction—celebrates the Grand Canyon and the American Southwest.
