A Classic Original
The Contemporary Resort is one of the two first resorts on property when the Walt Disney World Resort opened in 1971. The most prominent of the resort's four stand-alone buildings is the Contemporary 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.
To construct the building, steel frames were erected on site and modular pre-constructed rooms, designed by California architect Donald Wexler, were lifted into place by crane. Most of Disney's Polynesian Resort was built this way also. The Contemporary Tower houses most of the resort's key facilities, including resort registration and the guest service concierge. The main hall, named the Grand Canyon Concourse, is also located in the main Tower, and houses restaurants and a variety of shops. Approximately 500 guest rooms line the outer walls of the Contemporary Tower.
The Walt Disney World Monorail System runs through the inside of this building, providing a monorail station here for resort guests. Adorning the concourse walls is a multi-story mosaic designed by Mary Blair. One three-story wing flanks the south side of the Tower and offers an additional 250 rooms. A convention center was added to the resort and opened on November 11, 1991, with more! than 90,000 square feet (8,400 m2) of convention space.
Before the construction of Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, The Contemporary was once considered Disney's flagship resort.
