No, it was his brother Eli.

Thanks for the info!!

I thought the GF was modeled after the Hotel del Coronado?

To me it looks a lot like Raffles in Singapore

Love the look of the menu.....hope it tastes as good. Hate the name of the new/expanded lounge.



Architecturally, I not sure if its blending or clashing with the Grand Floridian. But Mizners was sorely in need of a refurb and this is better, even if it does not blend with the overall GF decor.

Maybe cigar smokers will turn into the beast but probably not get lucky with Beauty unless they magically receive a rose from the beggar character.
I am sure the chefs are creating chocolate roses as we discuss. Anybody want to bet a signature artistic creation will be a rose dessertted on your plate with a swirl of the grey stuff please.

Looking forward to the chandelier. Although my favorite chandelier is the one inside Top of the World. And stiff competition from the chandelier inside the lobby of the GF !
The Top of the World has the added bonus of interior surrounding glass that reflects their shine and the sparkle of the fireworks creates the winner in my hearts challenge

Wouldn’t you love it if we all took our brand new lightsabers up to the outside viewing area and lit up our glows to create multicolored designs on the glass reflections?
Can you organize this just for me? Anybody else have NYE reservations for the 30th at BLT ?
Maybe the 29th since it will be easier to invite every Mouse Owner.
And we need time to save up for the lightsaber purchase , etc.

Whoops to keep this on topic ( and I admit I am the worst ) ....
. maybe we can create our own fun on the newly designed Rose outside seating area.
Got ideas?

Would love to see a PopUp dance with lightsabers under the evening stars reflecting the MF inside Galaxy Edge!
I can’t stay on topic for even one second!

I just realized the abbreviation for the Enchanted Rose is The ER.... but ASS is still the winner.
