Disney’s Contemporary Resort and Bay Lake Tower Guide


Disney’s Contemporary Resort was the first resort hotel at the Walt Disney World Resort. It’s an iconic A-frame resort and is the home of not only Disney Legend Mary Blair’s 90-foot-tall spectacular mural, but it is also the location where the Resort Monorail actually travels through the classic hotel! Location and use of the Resort Monorail are only a couple of the reasons this hotel is a fan-favorite!
