Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is home to not one, but two lovely pool Bars. There's the St. Johns Bar at the pool in the courtyard, and the Beach Pool Bar, which is situated between the beach and lively beach side waterfall pool. Both locations offer guest a great opportunity to wet their whistle while enjoying their time poolside.
The Beach Bar and St. John's are generally open by Noon, and close between 7pm and 9pm depending on the time of year.
Both Bars serve the standard Disney Pool Bar Drink Menu and offer minimal snacks such as chips and pretzels. The Tropical Mojito is one of my favorite poolside sips. However if it's something more substantial you seek Private Dining can be ordered from both bars through the bar tender or call Private Dining directly using the guest phone. Your meal will be delivered poolside by a handsome butler in a sharp suit.
Though the bars themselves are fairly typical they serve the purpose of keeping thirsty guests hydrated and happy with a beer or cocktail while they catch some sun. If you're looking for a place to relax with your drink that has fewer young families and small children, give the St. John's pool a try. The beautiful courtyard and dazzling white buildings of the Grand Floridian seethe Victorian charm and elegance from every corner.
