And after 10 months of anticipation, the new Craftsman Bar is set to soft open tomorrow! Here’s a tour of the new poolside bar, as well as a look at the full food and drink menu.

This new bar area is quite large and fits right in with the craftsman theming of the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. We think guests, especially all you dads out there, will appreciate the TVs at the bar top.

This is how to add a bar that fits the theme of the resort. The Grand Floridian at WDW should take note.

A nice enough addition, Grand Californian is still a bit pricey if you ask me.

I’m beyond fired up for this!
Living 95 miles from DLR, I’ve been visiting & loved the Grand Cal & especially it’s pool area since it opened.
But I’ve always wanted a pool bar.
Now that this sweet location is opening, it’s time to book another stay.

I’m so excited for this! I had heard from other sites and comments on social media this wouldn’t be open to everyone, only hotel guests, which wouldn’t make sense compared to all the other Disney hotel bars. Can’t wait for a review, this may be on our list for our next DLR trip.

They lost me at $21 nachos & the lack of shade. Pass
