Today In Disney History ~ January 30th
In 2005, Disney began an extensive renovation of Disney’s Contemporary Resort, and it was completed in 2009. As part of the major construction at the Contemporary Resort, the north wing of the hotel was demolished to make way for a separate Disney Vacation Club resort at the Contemporary complex that opened in 2009. At the same time, the Bay Lake Tower began construction. Disney’s Racquet Club was demolished by January 30, 2007, while the North Wing itself was demolished between January 31 and April 6, 2007. Construction on the new building continued through 2007, without Disney officially announcing what was actually being built. The Bay Lake Tower opened in 2009.
