A New Bar Coming To Disney's Grand Floridian

Disney Parks Blog announced recently that the new enchantments at Disney's Grand Floridian won't stop with the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique opening in Summer 2019. Mizner's Lounge and Commander Porter's at Disney's Grand Floridian will be closing their doors for good to make way for a brand new bar.

The new larger space will be inspired by the popular Disney's classic "Beauty and the Beast." A centerpiece chandelier above the bar evokes imagery of Belle's swirling yellow ball gown, and subtle nods to Beast's magical rose. The artistic piece will glow with golden light. The space will include a formal library showcasing classical baroque inspired interiors of Beast's Castle. In addition a garden room offers whimsy from the enchanted forest and an outdoor patio will with the romance of Beast's garden terrace.

Mizner's was always one of my favorite stops on a monorail crawl, sitting back with a drink and listening to the live jazz never gets old. Lately however, it had become difficult to find a seat at certain times. I'm happy to hear that the new bar offer more square footage, and have an even more enchanted Disney feeling.

How do you feel about this space being reimagined? Do you like the idea of a Beauty and the Beast inspired lounge, or does that move away too far away from the general theming of the resort? Leave a comment and share your thoughts!

Have always loved the location of Mizner's and we eat at Citricos a lot. But the bar has gotten way to crowded. What should have been an anticipated event of a drink or two before dinner became a stand and stare contest waiting for someone to leave. The mad rush to the table. The are also way under staffed there. This is a great renovation.

I so agree Mcheal - last time I tried to stop by on a monorail crawl we waited for about 15 minutes and not a single table or spot at the bar had opened up. Finally we just left and went back to the hotel room.

My friend, my cousin and I went to Mizner's Lounge on my birthday trip. No seats to be had. We went to Citrico's Lounge. It worked out better in the long run. We had great service and free champagne for my birthday.

JoAnn and I went there as the final stop on our monorail crawl, it was pretty early and we got a seat, nothing too special about it. But it served it's purpose well!! I'm a huge BatB fan so I look forward to seeing it in person!
