Hiya Pals!

I know the main tower at the Contemporary has been refurbished already and received the Incredibles overlay. Have the Garden Wings been refurbished as well or is that a work in progress? I know the plan was to start the Garden Wings when the Tower was complete.

Thanks!

I believe the Garden Wing was just recently completed. Like in the last few years.

The garden wings have not been refurbished yet. They really need to get on it. The rooms are looking very rough. We stayed in one in August and had to change rooms because of some issues. They are not worth the price right now.

Thanks for the info. I thought they had been refurbed. We stayed there in 2019 and our room was pretty nice.
They haven’t had the Incredibles makeover that the Tower rooms have just had done this summer.

I’m not sure if has been definitively stated whether or not the Garden Wing rooms are getting the same treatment. Opinions from a couple of CMs on this forum differed, so at this point it isn’t clear one way or the other.
 
No announcements, but it has to be on the table given the condition. Total speculation, but they could be considering -

-Expanding the Incredibles theme - this makes the most sense given the ease, and would match the complete roll out of Moana at the Poly. However they have not announced this for Bay Lake, which somehow feels less likely there.

-Building another DVC property, which is difficult due to the land potentially being unable to support it near the water.

-If the Incredibles rooms are not well received/demand lower than expected, perhaps they try to wait it out - and rebuild these w/o the incredibles theme in a few years.


My vote would be to theme them in more the classic Contemporary style of the lobby and the bathrooms in the new rooms - w/o the Incredibles theme. This would also be a better fit for Bay Lake, in minor touches, which will also need upgrades fairly soon (murphy beds!)

What they do to the Contemporary rooms is likely to have little effect on what they do at Bay Lake, which should get a full refurb in 2024, based on the 7 year cycle.

The DVC rooms at the Poly didn’t get the full Moana treatment, in fact it was very light touches (and the Lilo and Stich theme of the single Murphy bed stayed). It was technically a soft goods refurb albeit with the Murphy bed added in place of the sofa bed. In general DVC rooms have much lighter themeing than the regular resorts.
