Disney’s Contemporary Resort The Wave Lounge Review

The Wave Lounge Review

The Wave of American Flavors, which is just off the lobby at the Contemporary Resort has a quite lounge

This location is often overlooked and lightly trafficked.

The Wave Lounge Review


The lounge is dark and quite due to lower traffic. You can see in the pictures the staff outnumbers the guests.

But the food is great, you can order off of the restaurant menu as well as the lounge appetizer menu, and the bar has a nice selection too.

There are no magical views in this windowless location.

To find the Wave head to the right side of the first floor front desk and look for the sign.

A quiet spot to enjoy a drink at the Contemporary. Fantastic food in the co-located restaurant.
