How much would you pay to stay at the Ugliest Building in Florida? $1,000 a night? $2,000 a night? More?

The Ugliest Buildings in America

Depending on where you choose to stay when booking a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, you can easily find rooms north of $2,000 a night. And one of Walt Disney World’s properties, described as a Deluxe Resort Hotel, has just been named by Travel.Alot.com as the ugliest building in Florida. For context, the travel website researched all the states in America and determined the ugliest building in each one.

Some of these noteworthy eyesores include the English-Philosophy Building at the University of Iowa (in Iowa), which is a standard-looking building. It’s about as basic as you can get.

Another is House II in Hardwick, Vermont which is apparently on sale for $2 million for those interested.

Another interestingly designed building is the Weokie Credit Union in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

The Ugly Step Sister of Walt Disney World?

Now what Walt Disney World hotel could possibly be on this list? The All Star Resorts? The Pop Century Resort?

Nope. Guess again.

The Contemporary Resort.

Can you believe it? One of the few original Walt Disney World hotels. The iconic A-framed hotel was built over 50 years ago and designed to provide Guests with breathtaking views of the Magic Kingdom Park and convenient transportation with the pass-through monorail.

However, the travel website naming it the Ugliest Building in Florida describes it as looking like an ugly “futuristic Aztec pyramid.” It also criticizes the building’s design for having the monorail running through it – claiming it’s the loudest hotel in all of Walt Disney World.

It’s an unusual take on the Disney Resort that epitomizes a Walt Disney World hotel. Whether a Contemporary Resort Guest or a casual theme park goer, it’s one of Walt Disney World’s most iconic structures (outside the theme parks).

What do you think? Do you think The Contemporary Resort earns the title of Ugliest Building? I’m confident I’ve seen uglier buildings in Florida – even in Orlando. But that’s just my opinion…

About Steven Wilk

Steven has a complicated relationship with Disney. As a child, he visited Walt Disney World every few years with his family. But he never understood why kids his age (and older) were so scared of Snow White or Alien Encounter. He is a former participant of the Disney College Program (left early…long story), and he also previously worked in Children’s publishing, where he adapted multiple Disney movies and TV shows. He has many controversial opinions about Disney…like having a positive view of Michael Eisner, believing Return of the Jedi is superior to The Empire Strikes Back, and that Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge should have never been built (at least not at Hollywood Studios). Every year for the past two decades, Steven has visited either Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani or went on a Disney Cruise. He’s happy to share any and all knowledge of the Disney destinations (and he likes using parenthesis a lot…as well as ellipses…)
