Contemporary Resort Disney Pin
Just like the Port Orleans Riverside pin that I posted here on the blog in late February, above you'll find a Disney's Contemporary Resort pin that we picked up on our recent trip down to WDW. I typically try to get the pin from the resort we stayed at during our trips, but sometimes it ends up being a holiday- inspired version like this Chip and Dale Christmas one from the Polynesian from the holidays in late 2015. I kinda love how they've included the monorail buzzing around from the side of the hotel in this pin and at first, I didn't love the Contemporary. What..with the real lack of theme-ing, right? Well, I've learned to really like it...and not just for the easy walk to the Magic Kingdom. (But, that is preetay, preetay, preetay nice, right??)
Turns out, my parents stayed at the Contemporary during the first year of existence when they took my two oldest sisters down to WDW for a trip in 1971 during the inaugural year. That's kinda awesome, right? We've stayed at Bay Lake Tower before, but this was the first time staying in the Contemporary itself and...um...we had a great time. But we also got a MASSIVE room upgrade. More on that in a different post, but I think if we were given the room we originally booked, I wouldn't like the stay as much as we did.
