Thanks for posting the pics! I have to say that I agree with the others in that I honestly don't see that the lounge as worth the grossly inflated money, at least as far the decor is concerned. It looks a bit Vegas back in the 70's. I'll admit, I'm not a fan of the Contemporary at all. I've always thought it looked like Logan's Run had a run in with a toaster and it was a draw. Also always reminded me of when I was a kid back in the early 70's and we'd take roadtrips and stay at the Holiday Inn. Is it just me or does the lounge look sort of like the lobby of every hotel chain from 1974?

I thought I'd rethink my position with the recent changes. I'm not sure I can.

But the pics of the lounge at Polynesian look pretty cool. The other half has wanted to stay there for quite a while but I'd always been the one to think "meh." But with those pics I'm slowly but surely changing my mind.

but the contemporary isnt really about modern decor and style... its about what people thought looked futuristic and stylistic in the 70s! - or at least thats how I see the whole resort.

As much as I agree with that, I still think the place looks like it was decorated in 1972 and has never been redone. The current decor in the tower rooms is a lot more Contemporary than the lounge. I mean faux wood walls and those blue walls look like painted posterboard. The last time I was in the Tower, it looked nothing remotely like that.

I understand the concept, but it looks like it was executed with poor quality materials. The Poly lounge has a retro sort of look to it, too, but it doesn't look like the furnishings and wall decor there were bought at a Kmart or a Wally World.

This is a thread for photos of the Club level lounges. If you care to discuss the lounges at any of the WDW please do so on the resort board.

I am looking forward to more photos.

Thank you everyone.

I'm not a big fan of the Contemporary either. It reminds me of the tall buildings I see everyday in Manhatten.
For one week the Poly takes me away from all that and the concierge makes it feel even better.

How about Beach Club or Grand Floridian lounges, anyone? It would be great (and really convenient for people) if more lounges were in this thread!
