Confirmed: Whilst this is currently a rumour, with no confirmation from the Disney, (I have read several other reliable sources that this is true), I am super excited to see this come to life.
Updated 12th April 2019.
Today Disney has announced this rumour to be true. Below is the only piece of concept art released. Not much other detail has been released.
Beauty and the Beast is one of my all time favourite Disney movies. The plans for the upcoming project will be based on the 2017 live action movie and not the 1991 Disney classic.
Mizner’s closes at the beginning of April 2019 for its lengthy refurbishment and is set to reopen late fall. A temporary bar will be set up next to the Garden View Tea Room from 4pm-12am.
The plans call for three rooms when the retheme is completed. The current Mizner’s Lounge area will be themed to the library from Beast’s Castle and will have tables and sofas as a seating area.
Commander Porter’s mens clothing shop will transform into the ballroom and feature the main bar, which is said to be a u-shaped bar.
Finally, the hallway outside of the patio will be themed to ‘the woods’.
I am hoping thisbis true and I am wondering if this will be over the top in its theming like the Be Our Guest Restaurant, or a subtle concept. Either way, I am extremely excited.
My fingers are crossed that the fall reopening falls inside my window of visiting at the end of November.
Did you like Mizner’s? Do you welcome the change? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
