Disney, we’re home. After being closed since March, select DVC resort hotels are now open at Walt Disney World. Although the theme parks won’t reopen until next month, being able to set foot back on Disney property has such a great sense of optimism for the future. For its reopening day, Bay Lake Tower was still very empty, and people are not yet staying in Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Because Bay Lake Tower doesn’t have dining and shopping options, the Grand Canyon Concourse area at Disney’s Contemporary Resort is open for Bay Lake Tower guests, although options are limited. Currently the only dining options open are Contempo Cafe, The Wave, and the pool bar–no Chef Mickey’s, California Grill, or Outer Rim Lounge. Needless to say, it is very odd standing in the Grand Canyon Concourse and having it be eerily quiet.
Here’s some of what we saw today as we wandered around to take in the sights.
And yes, even though it has a new paint job, seeing the castle again was a sight for sore eyes!
