It’s going to be the “Forrest” area of the bar. Surely the smokers will be gone.

I hate this move (as Tom knows).

Simply put we have enough PRincess and characted themed locations. VGF is about CLASS..and Sophistication. Which means a adulting bar like Mizners is critical. As is the band outside.

I hope they kill this STUPID idea.

Too late. The store is already empty and construction zone beginning with workers measuring , etc....
The announcement and pictures are not very clear What will happen to the band area that oversees the Grand lobby and provides the musical theme for entire area? Hope they don’t mess around with this.

Band area is not being changed or altered.

I thought that rule applies to the parks; the resorts will have designated smoking areas so why can't the patio be retained as a smoking area.
I don't smoke but I understand the displacement for those who do (ie., if you take it away they will find another venue for their convenience not necessarily the cattle call designation zone).
