Disney hotel Evacuation

Video: Guests Evacuated from Disney World Hotel

One of the Walt Disney World Resort’s most popular and recognizable hotels had to be evacuated yesterday.

Disney’s Contemporary Resort is a popular “home away from home” spot for Guests due to a variety of factors, from its architectural style and indoor monorail station to its character dining experiences and proximity to Magic Kingdom Park. But it appears that its entire main building had to be evacuated.

@LostBrosTweets was on-scene as the call for evacuation interrupted their Chef Mickey’s reservation.

Any evacuation of this scale usually points to a high-level emergency situation like a fire breaking out. The evacuation order pushed Guests and Cast Members alike outside. Fire trucks, most likely from the Reedy Creek Fire Department, were also reported on the scene. But luckily, it appears that it was a false alarm.

@LostBrosTweets said,

“okay false alarm and everyone is back inside now but this is when everyone from the restaurants including servers came out, and everyone was chillin hard and taking selfies so this is when knew nothing was wrong.”

It is unknown if anybody was seriously hurt or if this was a case of a Guest pulling a fire alarm. Guests and Cast Members returned inside, and the day resumed.

The Walt Disney World Resort prides itself in the level of safety and security it maintains for its Guests both in the Parks and at Resort Hotels like Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

Disney’s futuristic-styled Resort, nestled on the shores of Bay Lake and flanked by Disney Vacation Club’s Bay Lake Tower, is described as the following:

“Retreat to this ultra-modern Disney Resort hotel and discover award-winning dining, spectacular views and dazzling pools. Whether you’re staying in the iconic A-frame Contemporary tower or the nearby Garden Wing, you can walk to Magic Kingdom main gate or catch the Resort Monorail as it breezes through the tower. Inside, a 90-foot-tall mural by Disney Legend Mary Blair—responsible for the distinct look and feel of the “it’s a small world” attraction—celebrates the Grand Canyon and the American Southwest.”
