This is a smart man.
Thanks for the compliments, folks! It definitely sucks being sick at Disney, and it's unfortunately happened to me twice during several of my recent visits, but just being there somehow helps ya grind it out with a smile on your face.
After looking back over the Contemporary pics, I find myself so conflicted. I still LOVE the place, but can't help but feel something
needs to be done to bring it a bit more current. At the same time, a huge part of me really still enjoys the whole 70's vision of the "future" that remains. I mean, I know they've updated the guest rooms, and the addition of Bay Lake Tower is really nice and swank, but dropping a gift shop onto the main level and adorning it with some sleek mouse ears just doesn't really work.
I'd also hate to see the outdated mosaic wall disappear, but it's just another piece that plays into my confliction with the whole place. I think I've stayed there a handful of times, but it's literally been decades since then. In fact, my Mom asked me if I remembered our first visit, and I said, "Yes, why?" She said it cost $45 a night the first time we stayed there! You can't find a Tower room these days for under $400 a night!! As much as I'd like to see some
changes made, I'm sure it would up the price to that of a transplanted kidney.....at least.
What's everyone's thoughts on the Contemporary?
