  • North Wing - GONE

    http://allearsnet.com/news/rehabs_pix.htm

    It's the end of the era. Demolition has officially started on the North Garden Wing, and the Contemporary Resort maps have been updated to reflect the change. The North Wing will go down with the Court of Flags as a USS modular constructed resort that has been demolished.

    On a lighter note, I for one would like to welcome our new DVC overlords.

      Am I the only one who found these buildings of the Contemp. ugly? Maybe around these parts but someone else must've thought so as they put word in to demolish them.

        I admit I didn't like them either - the quality of their construction was much lower than that of the tower itself. The choice of brick over concrete was what really turned me off. That being said, the South wing could easily be saved with some work.

          Yeah, it sure hasn't been peaceful around here (I've been staying at the resort the past few days, you know.)

          The people at the Contemporary have been nothing but gracious hosts and having been through Saratoga Springs a number of times I'd say DVC is more themed and more in line with what I'd expect from WDW resorts compared to, say, the condos going up back home.

          Basically, I'd sooner take a DVC wing and see money flood into a full refurbishment for this hotel (which I think includes these new, more professional looking rooms) than see no wing and watch the hotel fall into rot and disrepair.

                At least I'm not the only one. I think yoyoflamingo was about to kill me for saying that because of the history and whatnot. But for me, just viewing them with my newer light on WDW, which is often more like an average guest - they're ugly. And since the monorail goes by it from the parking lot - double ugly.


                Hides from the :mob: of others who loved the North Wing.

                  Now we'll have a view of a construction site.

                    What are they building in the North Wing's place?

                      That is temporary. The wing was there for years looking like that. So hurry up and finish it!!

                          To me, the North Wing looked to hotely, if you know what I mean. The buildings did not seem to have any architectual themes.

                            Just hope that the 14 story tower that's being built isn't seen from the middle of Main Street. I am upset not by their look, but because those really are some nice places to stay, secluded from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the Contemporary. Now, there is only 1 wing left to stay in that is cheaper than the out of my price range tower rooms.

                              I agree. I don't want to see this from Main Street. :croll:
