Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th anniversary celebration is in full swing, and the powers-that-be in Orlando made all sorts of exciting changes to rides, restaurants, and Resort hotels before the party in the Parks officially kicked off on October 1, 2021.
The Contemporary’s lobby also received some much-needed updates with a Mary Blair-inspired spin.
Now, it seems that Disney isn’t quite finished working on the Contemporary. A new permit was officially filed for “General Construction” by Groveland, Florida-based contractor New Horizon Construction Services indicates that the renovation of Disney’s Contemporary Resort still isn’t fully completed.
Although this permit doesn’t specify what project is being done, it is likely that it is related to the ongoing refurbishment at the Disney Deluxe Resort, which is an opening day hotel that was available to Guests on October 1, 1971.
More on Disney’s Contemporary Resort
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.
