RUMOR: Mizner’s Lounge at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort to be Re-themed to Beauty and the Beast Library Bar & Lounge

Just last week, it was revealed that Mizner’s Lounge at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa would be closing for refurbishment come April 4th.

Commander Porter’s, the menswear store adjacent to the lounge, would be closed for a lounge expansion. According to multiple sources, it appears the space will be re-themed to the live action 2017 version of Beauty and the Beast:

Additional details about the space include the transformation of Mizner’s Lounge into a library lounge space.

Commander Porter’s will be turned into the main bar space (themed to a ballroom), and a hallway and outdoor seating area themed to the woodsy environment shown in the film. (Hopefully no werewolves, though.)

Fear not, the Grand Floridian Society Orchestra will be staying to serenade guests, although we wonder whether their set list will change given the change in theme.

The newly expanded, re-imagined Mizner’s Lounge is expected to reopen in Fall of 2019.
