The Contemporary.

This would be a brilliant location to shoot an Atom Punk themed film.

One great thing about Disney, that I think a lot of people can relate to, is that its so awesome in its old-new atmosphere. It is the epitome of retrofuturism, everything from It’s A Small World to Epcot has something old that was at one point cutting edge and brand new in design, technology or appearance.

Case in point, The Contemporary Resort. This place had to have been designed by architects who were sitting around, smoking and reminiscing about Logan’s Run.

The Contemporary was built in ’71, placing it right on the cusp of the end of the Atomic Age and the beginning of the Digital Age, so it makes sense that it looks and feels the way it does (if you’ve been in it, you know what I mean).

  1. Cool pictures. I used to be obsessed with Disneyland when I was a kid. It was like another planet or something to me! Keep posting cool stuff on this awesome topic.
