The lounge was always packed...it didn't need to attract more guests...It did always feel like an afterthought as far as the decor...That said, this is awful from the name forward... It looks like the property Brothers designed a cocktail lounge for an old building in Seattle...other than them telling you about the tie-ins to the Beauty And The Beast, this design does nothing to reinforce that story... and as someone else pointed out, looks an awful lot like the morbidly gray yacht club lounge... I am sure the same design team....and the same design team that is doing every Marriott hotel in the united states. If it was going to be inspired by Beauty and the Beast they have captured nothing of the story or design... There is no real beauty, it feels dreadfully ordinary with a nice light treatment over the bar."Rabble rabble rabble"
I think it looks nice. Maybe out of place, but the lounge needed an update to attract more guests. I think this will do it.
Sure. But nothing about this lounge screams in your face IP. Only an inspiration...that is weirdly placed in the GF. Assuming a M&G doesn't seem to align with the direction of this particular lounge that caters to adults. Seems like quite a leap...unless he was being sarcastic...Because kids love character photos.
Because it's Disney World where cartoon theming and IP overlays make EVERYTHING better. Right? Who WOULDN'T want an "immersive character experience" with a Disney cartoon in an upscale hotel bar for adults? We need some more Beauty and the Beast theming. Maybe all the waitresses will dress like Belle. Maybe the liquor bottles will break out into song. Fingers crossed.Why would you assume that?
It just logically follows, doesn't it? They need more than just a name. It's a Beauty and the Beast inspired lounge. . . For adults. . . At the Grand Floridian. And on the topic of the Grand Floridian, has anybody heard the rumor that they're changing the name of Victoria and Albert's to Buzz and Woody's?You consider this lounge revamp to be cartoon theming and an IP overlay? What concept art that you have seen points to that?
