Disney's Contemporary Resort Holiday Decor Photo Tour

The next stop on our Disney Resort hotel holiday decor tour is Disney's Contemporary Resort. One of the three original Disney Hotels the Contemporary features ultra-modern design, Monorails that breeze through the tower, and a 90-foot-tall mural by Disney Legend Mary Blair. It doesn't matter if you enter this classic Disney resort from the lobby or monorail station, you're in for a holiday treat. Let's take a look!

Stepping off the monorail the first thing you're met with is the shops of Disney's Contemporary Resort. This are decked out with all the best in Disney's Holiday Merchandise Line with a farmhouse feel that's been made to look modern with decorations in red, white, and black with tinsel trees. You can see that just about anywhere though, so we quickly moved past the shops.

Just behind the shopping area guests can find the Gingerbread shop and display.
2019 marks the 10th Anniversary Cinderella Castle Gingerbread display. The popular castle showpiece has a pretty white "it's a small world" backdrop which is a nod to Mary Blair and her influence over the resort. Cinderella fans will also find it fun to know that the glass slipper is on display here. If tasty Christmas cookies are your thing, the Contemporary's pastry chef has put together a special box of assorted treats that can be bought.

The showpiece of the Grand Canyon Concourse has always been the magnificent tile mural by Disney Legend Mary Blair. The overall color scheme of the Contemporary's Holiday Decor is taken from the mural itself. Guests will find trees wreaths and garlands with colors of rust, bronze, green, and blue that come straight from the work of art.

Most of the ornaments on the decorations at Disney's Contemporary Resort are shiny Christmas balls and gold clusters of gold painted spheres that are reminiscent of grapes. I was especially fond of the shape that could be described as a flower, or a sunshine (this caused some debate with the folks I was with) that are scattered up and down. The simple shapes lead upwards to clever mid-century modern looking tree topers in some places.

While many of the trees on the Grand Canyon Concourse focused on one color or another, the lobby decor brightly danced with a combination of it all. The overall effect of holiday decor in southwestern hues with glittering gold pieces and white lights gives the Contemporary Holiday decor a sophisticated feel that could easily be brought into any home.
