Hmm. Not sure if I like the idea of cartoon-themed/named restaurants popping up in the resorts. With the exception of Chef Mickey's, it was rare to find a resort restaurant that used obvious Disney character theming rather than a more "real" setting directly applicable to the theme of the resort. This helped maintain a degree of thematic integrity in the individual resorts rather than go for the easier route of capitalizing on popular characters.

Even if Shutters was a more "boring" name and theme, I preferred it because it was a more "correct" creative choice.

Does Ariel's at Beach Club count?

I thought the same...very “punt” from a quality standpoint.

So is the character breakfast going to be announced tomorrow? Or do they wait a week?

I think most are missing the point. Another table-service restaurant in a "moderate" resort can only mean one thing: huge room rate increases. This muddles the line between the various resort classes considerably.

But. There’s always been a TS there. It’s just replacing Shutters.

Yeah...this is a replacement, not an addition.
The tacky theme is just that. But tacky sells.

And here’s the important part: new restaurant at Caribbean...revamped quickserve...one restaurant at new dvc...

Viola...there’s all those amenities for that $200 a point DVC on moderate bones.

Magic, baby

This was so needed Shutters was drab and antiquated and I'm glad to see Sebastian who was a popular character from my childhood getting a little recognition. I just wish they would consider naming the TS restaurant in the future Riviera Resort to Ariels (BCR) so its not just a meeting room and expands on the theme between the two resorts.

I remember back in the 90s when Ariels was a high end seafood and steak restaurant...it was very nice...not sure why the closed it.
