Welcome to the Contemporary Resort

    Newer Older

    Located inside Walt Disney World, on the shores of Bay Lake is the Cotempory Resort. The hotel opened October 1, 1971 along with the Polynesian Resort. Shown above is the main Tower, built as an A-frame with outer walls which slope inwards around an inner atrium. This design was a collaboration by Disney, the United States Steel Corporation, and Los Angeles architect Welton Becket.

    But the best part of this resort is that the Monorail System runs through the inside of this building which is an awesome sight to see.

    Please View Large On White. Thanks!
