There are many Disney World Resorts that are currently under refurbishment, in some aspects, which may leave Guests seeing a little more construction than they are typically used to.

While Disney’s All-Star Sports and Music remain closed alongside both Disney Port Orleans Resorts, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Disney’s Old Key West Resort, and Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort are all undergoing a form of refurbishment at this time.

The Resort that Guests will likely notice the most construction at is Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Disney’s Contemporary Resort is not only reimagining their rooms to become Incredibles-themed, leaving the majority of their main floor covered in tarps but the first-floor lobby and The Wave restaurant are also being redone.

The lobby is currently closed and will remain that way until September 2021, but when Guests enter the first floor, they can still walk through to the escalator. Considering the busses to get to the theme parks are accessible through the first-floor lobby, it is not surprising that Disney left it open during construction; however, it does mean that the area is full of construction walls.

We went to visit Disney’s Contemporary Resort to check out the ongoing construction. The first floor is definitely a tight squeeze at the moment with the number of construction walls surrounding the area.

Below, we can also see that The Wave sign is still intact. The dining location will be receiving a 50th anniversary transformation!

Below are photos of the lobby. As you can see, there are only small slivers open for Guests to walk through.

It will be interesting to see if construction walls move and reveal newly completed sections of the lobby. The refurbishment continues since the lobby must remain open with passable walkways.
