Photo Tour: Enchanted Rose Lounge at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

It seems that the emergence of new restaurants and lounges is a tale as old as time at Walt Disney World, and Enchanted Rose Lounge at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is the latest addition to the evolving story of dining in the World. But if you thought you’d have to wait until the last petal fell to get a look inside this Beauty & the Beast-inspired lounge, we’re happy to say: the curse of construction has been broken.

Enchanted Rose Lounge

Enchanted Rose Lounge had an unannounced soft opening today, and your AllEars team was there! We took a close look around the elegant space, sipped some serious cocktails, and ate every item on the small menu. Tonight we’re taking you on a tour of the space — or shall we say spaces? The Lounge consists of three themed rooms and a patio.

The centerpiece of the Lounge is a stately bar with too many high-end details to mention! Marble bar tops, wall panels with subtle wallpaper, and painted moldings fill the space with texture and dimension.

Brightly-lit glass shelves at the back of the bar make liquor bottles shine like gems.

The bar is large and dominates the Beauty & the Beast ballroom-themed room. Shades of gold and blue were used to mimic the colors worn by the eponymous characters in the iconic film scene. But if you’re not a BatB fan? You’ll only care that it’s really lovely.

But let’s talk about the (sparkly gold) elephant in the room: that chandelier! Comprised of dozens of glittering gold, glass tubes, the chandelier catches the light — and the attention of guests!

If you’re familiar with Belle’s iconic yellow ball gown, you can likely see how this light fixture is inspired by it. It’s truly a stunner.

Under the bar is another magical feature: charging ports! It might  be a timeless tale, but it’s still 2019.

In addition to bar seating at those gorgeous and shiny marble counters, there are also marble tables with smart leather chairs. The materials here are luxe.

In addition to the ballroom-inspired bar space, Enchanted Rose Lounge also has a visually-compelling library-inspired room. Angled ceilings, dramatic painted moldings, and a mixture of contrasting materials create a space you’ll want to explore.

The center of the bookshelves feature framed artwork… that are actually televisions. No word yet on what they’ll be showing, but we’ll be back to find out!

The bookshelves are lined with texts and accented by framed portraits, ornate boxes and collectibles, and some familiar… faces, so to speak.

That’s because you’ll spot Beauty & the Beast characters in their housewares forms. Cogsworth and Lumiere have places of honor — and they’re fabulous.

There’s a faux fireplace in the library, too. Here you’ll find more ornate items on display.

The library space also has beautifully designed decor, including these floral and buttery yellow chairs.

The details here are so impressive. The yellow is just right, and the print is floral without being old fashioned.

The third room at Enchanted Rose Lounge is the ‘garden’ room inspired by the forest that surrounds the Beast’s enchanted castle.

The lighting is exceptionally moody in here, as one might expect from something that takes its inspiration from the outdoors.

Murals are painted in an almost-cartoon style, with amorphous shapes, bold shapes, and playful color choices.

Decor includes deep green banquettes and round brass tables.

These curved chairs are stylish additions to the space, upholstered with a large floral print that works with their small frames.

These arm chairs are really something special — equal parts structured and soft.

Adjacent to the ‘garden’ room is a patio that is… let’s just say it’s not as abundantly themed as the rest of the Lounge.

A variety of chairs and tables are arranged to encourage lounging, and the space is open. Almost too open. It definitely feels like something is missing out here.

The patio does have lovely views of the Grand Floridian and, in the distance, the Polynesian Village Resort. We think this would be a beautiful place to relax for an evening, watching the sun set and the stars emerge.

Prior to the soft opening of Enchanted Rose Lounge, a lot of Mizner’s fans lamented the loss of their lounge. They feared a Beauty & the Beast-themed lounge would be too cutesy, losing the elegance and exclusivity found at Mizner’s.

But we have to say: the space is gorgeous, with or without the movie references. Bits of the film are here for those seeking that connection, but overall, it’s just a stunning lounge elegantly attuned to the spirit of the Resort as a whole while maintaining its own identity.

We’ll be back later this weekend with a look at the menus, cocktails (some crafted tableside!), and bites (including $95 caviar you’ve got to see). Stay tuned to AllEars!

  1. No, No, No. I will confess it doesn’t look as bad as I thought it would (though the forest “room” looks like a total afterthought) it just wasn’t necessary, and most of those praising it seem to be missing the point. I shudder to think what the second floor looks like now, with spaces chopped up and blocked off. I fear much of the charm and elegance have been lost. There was nothing wrong with Mizner’s. It was a pleasing adult space, at a resort where children have 95% of all spaces. Not only that but there’s nothing “old Florida” about this bar. The whole theme of the GF is “old Florida.” As I’ve said before, Disney needs to get off this kick that everything has to have some kind of character tie-in. At the rate they’re going, before you know it Victoria and Albert’s will be a character meal. As a DVC owner at GFV, and long-time Mizner’s fan this is inexcusable. As I’m going to WDW in a very short while, I’m going to have to restrain myself and not chew anyone out too thoroughly regarding this. I shudder to think how much more $ my sidecars are going to cost going forward. Mizner’s forever!

  2. Unbelievable!! Great article with some awesome insight. Though I will miss Mizner’s, it was definitely in need of an update and I think that they hit the nail on the head with this theme.

  3. I am one who didn’t believe the update was necessary as Mizner’s was a wonderful, unpretentious place to wind down. The new space is beautiful sure, but I think it embarrassing (and all too common for Disney these days) to charge these kinds of prices for cocktails! With this rip-off taking place, please bring back Mizner’s!

  4. Absolutely stunning and elegant! I want to see the chandelier in person because in pictures it looks more like macaroni than Belle’s dress lol. I wonder why the choice for another BatB spot instead of another character that doesn’t have as much of a presence already. I’d like to see something like this done at POFQ with Tiana! I’m all for more just like this at the resorts. I love the subtle nods and not overly kiddie. Us grown ups without kids can really get into this! I had the chance to eat at Artist Point recently and I love the Snow White vibe without looking like a cartoon. I’d love to see something subtle with dare I say it…Frozen. Also Tangled etc…all of them! lol
