This is actually really well done.
Right? Seeing those room illustrations in the lobby just reemphasizes what a misfire the rooms they ended up with are.*yells so someone at TDO might hear me* “DO THIS TO THE CONCOURSE LEVEL!!!”
How did they get the lobby so right and the rooms so wrong? I standby my theory that there was a glitch in the Covid era zoom meetings and the Incredibles rooms were accidentally approved.
The design team now shows it has the capability, but, do they have the guts to swallow their pride and REDO THE ROOMS!They’ve also got tables and chairs, plus comfy seats at Contemporary Grounds. So far I like what I’ve seen - except the rooms.
Blog Mickey has loads of pictures here:
The Disney's Contemporary Resort lobby is now open and we have a full tour of the new space, featuring wonderful murals and historic photos!blogmickey.com
All Ears only has a handful but shows the Contemporary Grounds area:
It looks like they’re possibly updating the flooring on the monorail platform maybe, but that’s it. Chef Mickeys is the main culprit, if they could get rid of the 90s purple clutter it would make a world of difference.Are they not doing work on the concourse level? If not that’s going to be quite the transition.
I had to Google West Elm as I’ve never heard of it. Is the fact a rustic-retro-modern style furniture store misinterpreted the difference between modern art/design and contemporary art/design excuse Disney from also doing so?
If Disney followed the trends the CR wouldn’t even exist.
Because the rooms are a hideous choice for this location. The rooms should match the lobby aesthetic. If the Incredibles rooms were at Art of Animation it would be great, but this hotel deserves a higher end look that decals of super suits in a closet are not providing.
- I don’t like the Incredibles
