The Incredibles Rooms Coming to Disney’s Contemporary Resort

Another one of Walt Disney World’s most famous hotels is getting a big refurbishment. Find out about “The Incredibles” themed rooms coming to Disney’s Contemporary Resort for the 50th Anniversary.

Disney's Contemporary Resort Incredibles Themed Rooms

In this post, we are going to break down everything we know so far about the new Incredibles-themed rooms and everything involved with the Contemporary Resort refurbishment project.

(UPDATE) Disney has just released the first photos of the new Incredibles-themed rooms, and they look amazing! Scroll down to the News section for all the details.

This is a timely update, since a fresh new look is greatly needed for one of Walt Disney World’s oldest hotels, having opened in 1971. This will help make the Contemporary Resort a bit more modern while integrating Disney characters into the theming, something Disney has been trying to do more across property.

The Incredibles Rooms first look

Rumors of “The Incredibles” themed rooms have been going around for many months, and permits for the construction were submitted in January. The first confirmation that the refurbishment is actually in progress was released a few months back.

On The Walt Disney World Website it was recently added: “Starting in April 2021, Disney’s Contemporary Resort will begin a refurbishment to reimagine Guest rooms. While some Main Tower rooms will be unavailable during the refurbishment, most resort areas and amenities will still be available for Guests to enjoy.”

Since then Disney has confirmed that all nine floors of guest rooms in the tower are being completely refurbished, and the new “The Incredibles” rooms will be debuting this fall.

(NEWS) Disney Reveals First Look at The Incredibles Themed Rooms

Disney has finally confirmed they are re-doing the Contemporary Resort to include rooms themed after the popular franchise The Incredibles, and has started releasing some of the details about them and they look “incredible!” Let’s take a look…

All the rooms will blend a sleek Monorail motif with your favorite characters from Pixar Animation Studios’ Incredibles films such as: Jack-Jack, Edna Mode, Frozone, and the rest of The Incredibles family.

There will be new custom artwork in each of the rooms and in the guest hallways.

Even the pillows are themed to Frozone and Edna Mode:

We really like the new bathrooms. Much brighter and more modern-looking than before.

Even the inside of the drawers have The Incredibles touch:

From what we can see so far, this is a big upgrade to the old Contemporary Resort rooms and they look much more modern and futuristic. We think they did a nice job including Disney characters into the decor, while being done in a tasteful and fun way.

The transformation of these rooms is beginning with the tower guest rooms and once they are complete, work will begin on the Garden Wing out near Bay Lake.

On a recent trip to the Contemporary Resort, we could see that construction is already visible in some of the rooms in the main tower, and theming elements from The Incredibles films are visible on the curtains even from the outside.

A couple of years ago, Disney did a test at the Contemporary Resort and actually built an Incredibles-themed room. It included new floor and wall treatments, light ash wood room doors and “The Incredibles” themed artwork.  This was even visible in the hallway outside the door of the room.

In the end, that test room was taken down, but it could provide insight into what Disney has in mind moving forward for the current rooms. Obviously this was not a test and it was only a preview of the work currently going on.

Even though the work was supposed to start in April, the refurbishment began about a month earlier. The construction is supposed to be finished by September, right in time for the Disney World 50th Anniversary celebration. Right now the official opening is “Fall 2021” but we don’t have an exact date at this time.

These are not the only new character-themed rooms coming to Walt Disney World. Moana-themed rooms are a big part of the refurbishment happening at Disney’s Polynesian Resort, as well as a new porte cochere, work on the Great Ceremonial House, monorail station, and more.

Disney has also mentioned other improvements as part of the Contemporary Resort refurbishment and is not going to be limited to only The Incredibles rooms.

A re-theming of The Wave restaurant at the Contemporary Resort has also been confirmed to “make way for a reimagined dining experience in time for the Walt Disney World 50th anniversary celebration.”

The Wave is being reimagined into the Steakhouse 71 restaurant, a “casual-themed dining concept” that gets its name from the opening year of the Walt Disney World Resort.

Rumors are that “The Incredibles” might be worked into the theme somehow, but nothing official has been announced about that at this time.

In the lobby, there will be a collection of modern art pieces as well as historical, behind-the-scenes photographs of Disney’s Contemporary Resort during its development and construction back in 1971 and before.

Stay tuned and we’ll keep you updated once more changes are announced. In the meantime, check out our Disney World Refurbishments List to see any other hotels or attractions that might be closed during your next trip.

The Contemporary Resort was the first Disney resort I stayed in with my family as a small child. I have stated there several times and adore it. The Incredibles is actually my favorite Disney/Pixar movie. That being said, the Contemporary is a Deluxe resort. The tower rooms were the "I hope we can save up and stay there" extra special icing on the Disney trip when we could afford it. We have stayed at many if not most of the resorts with our last stay in the beautifully refurbished Pop Century rooms. I could see Disney redoing a section in the garden wings of the Contemporary in the Incredibles theme much like the Pirates rooms at the Caribbean Beach Resort or the lovely Princess rooms at Port Orleans Riverside. The fact that they are redoing ALL the gorgeous, best view in the kingdom if you can afford it, rooms in the tower is a mistake in my opinion. Not everybody that visits DW travels with children. The Value Resorts and especially the Art of Animation are geared toward families with kids. The fact that they took the best rooms in one of the most expensive Disney resorts and turned them into kid central when all these other kid-focused resorts already exist really puts me off. Having grown kids, we will sadly not be staying at the Contemporary again. The rooms are, in my opinion only, garish (that bright orange couch?) I could not see paying hundreds, and hundreds of dollars per night to look at cartoon characters (I still love Edna Mode though) in my deluxe Disney room. Big mistake. Let's see how this plays out. This is my opinion only.

Definitely needed as it was looking very tired. Great upgrade. Fun theme too.
