PHOTOS, VIDEO: New Mary Blair and Tomorrowland-Inspired Lobby Opens at Disney’s Contemporary Resort

In the past few days, we got our first glimpses at the newly reimagined lobby of Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Now the lobby has reopened and guests can step into the world of Mary Blair’s artwork.

The Mary Blair-inspired lobby goes well with the legendary Mary Blair mural on the fourth floor.

We already took a look at the new orb lights and mid-century wallpaper in this hallway.

This wide column will remind guests of the attraction most associated with Mary Blair, “it’s a small world”, but it’s really an homage to the Grand Canyon Concourse tile work.

As with other resort lobbies, this one has been redesigned to be more spacious, with a few smaller desks instead of one large counter.
