    Ugh. This is truly disgusting in my eyes. Mizners is a great little place so of course they have to throw characters all over it.

    I agree, however if you were going to throw characters why not choose something that fits better? Mary Poppins, Alice etc. Be Our Guest is just down the road.

    That too. Poppins could've at least been charming where I just see the theming of BatB being overbearing and unnecessary.

    Not really sure how beauty and the beast equals a bar. Kind of a weird choice of IP for a bar.

    Grand Floridian does not equate to a bachelor pad for Gaston.

    Poppins would've been easy for them to do if they really desired it, so I do not get this decision at all.

    Not sure how much various sites cribbed from me, but agreed. "The Library"--where current bar sits--seems to have the most potential. Comfy couches, a fireplace, cocktail servers working the room. As long as you can still hear the band clearly, could be nice.

    But whomever thought convention-goers and V&A guests are looking for a hotel bar topped with a gaudy chandelier--what the men's shop will be--is completely out of touch with the market.

    The bar needed more space--or, more accurately, the resort needed a new bar in the DVC building--but shoehorning in BatB into a Victorian era lobby with live music primarily from the 30s - 50s is just a bizarre choice.

    Salon becoming a Bippity Boppity Boutique. No word on Citricos yet, but overdue for its refurb, will anyone be shocked to see characters? And Tea Room and 1900 Park Faire downstairs. There's basically a trail of pixie dust here.

    It takes away a “luxury” offering, but I get the BBB change. This just seems to be trying to fix a problem that didn’t exist.

    It looks like they copied Ale and Compass at YC and added a chandelier...

    Selective with the artwork they showed. Unless changes were made--entirely possible given they buried this story opposite Rise of Skywalker--there are also far more obvious representations of Belle and Beast. But like anything, can't judge it until you see it in person with a full crowd.

    Eh.. I mean.. it looks LOOSELY inspired. But the Ale and Compass comparison is right on it. Doesn't even look like a GF aesthetic, unless there's more changes on the way?

    So subtle, you'd probably not notice unless someone mentioned it.

    Makes no thematic sense... also looks like the live action movie based on colors, which was awful ( I don’t blame you, Emma).

    I believe it IS based on the live action based on the rumors I had heard.
