I agree. Back in the 1980s, I remember going on vacation with my family and buying vacation clothes, non-Disney apparel, while on vacation. It is akin to a small upscale boutique one would find at a high-end resort or mall.I always felt like the men’s store added a touch of class to the Grand. Having a real men’s clothing store selling upscale Non-Disney clothing may not have been overly profitable, but it helped to make the Grand feel like a “real” upscale resort to me. Certainly not the end of the world, but seems like a small loss to me.
I agree it never was as nice as it could or should be...espcially touting the Mizner name but having none of the characteristic charm and style of his architectural legacy...Maybe now it will look less like a convention center flex space and more like the swanky lounge it is supposed to be.This makes sense. I always thought, for the GF, Mizners wasnt fancypants enough like the rest of the hotel.
Hope they make more room for seats.
When we were there last summer it was packed every night. Seeemed to be either from convention groups or wedding parties but it was very busy.I don’t remember ever seeing it full (admittedly, I haven’t visited often). Of course, the Menswear store never seemed busy either.
