Two new “test rooms” have popped up at Disney’s Contemporary Resort recently. The rooms are side-by-side and easily spotted on the eighth floor above Chef Mickey’s. As part of a proof-of-concept test, the exterior and interior of the rooms are being refurbished to implement a Mid-century modern look that would utilize the Incredibles intellectual property.
As you might imagine, the rooms are not open to the public and have been removed from the inventory of the hotel as the rooms are refurbished. Cast Members we spoke with were initially unaware of the work, but updated us with the fact that they are undergoing refurbishment in an effort to show off a concept to Disney executives. If the executives sign off on the rooms, it is said that more rooms at the resort would undergo a similar refurbishment. At this point it’s unclear if the rooms would be completely redone with Incredibles IP everywhere, or a simple Mid-century modern look that is inspired by the look and feel of the Incredibles movies.
As far as what we can see, a section of the eighth floor has seen carpet replaced, new art installed, new doors, and new wall decor. We examine the changes below.
Here’s a look at the room from across the Grand Canyon Concourse.
As a reminder, here’s a look at the exterior decor for current rooms at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
Disney has not commented on the test, but it’s not uncommon to see Pixar properties implemented at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
In April 2018, Disney introduced the Pixar Play Zone as an area to essentially drop off your 4-12 year old kid and let them play for a while. As part of the theme for the Pixar Play Zone, Disney used intellectual properties such as Toy Story, Cars, and The Incredibles. While the Pixar Play Zone closed in March of this year, Disney introduced even more Pixar IP into the resort with the limited-time Woody’s Roundup BBQ over the long 4th of July holiday.
