9/21/08 Jose Eber’s Contemporary Resort Update

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Work around Disney’s Contemporary Resort is really picking up with some major changes taking place over the last week. WDWNT photographer Jose Eber was there to share with us some of the new additions:

The Resort map has been updated to include the upcoming Bay Lake Tower expansion.

Officially Opens Fall 2009.

However, there is something new you can experience now: the seating area for the new quick service dining location for the resort.

What is finished of the new dining spot sports a touch of character.

The Concourse Steakhouse replacement is going to be right next door to the often loud Chef Mickey’s. The Grand Canyon Concourse is going to be very noisy.

A wall of planters separates guests from where they will buy their food when the counter service addition opens in a few days.

I’m hoping more registers than these pop up before this place opens, or I’ll be expecting long lines.

Jose even pieced together a nice little panoramic shot for us. As you can see, more of the seating area is behind walls where the Outer Rim bar once stood.

Be sure to stay tuned to WDW News Today as work continues on Disney’s Contemporary Resort through the Fall of next year.
