Default Grandstand removed from Grand Floridian lobby

I saw WDW today post this. Has anyone heard if it is permanent? I really hope not. I love to sit in the lobby and listen to them play. I know some of them have been moved to the theatre at HS so I'm hoping it's temporary but with the grandstand being removed it makes me question. Just wondering if anyone had any info. We won't be back until next month so I can try and find out.

It’ll be interesting to see if the band return in the next couple of weeks when the resort re-opens. I doubt they’re gone for good, it’s just a good way to use them now to create some new “magic” in the parks. The pianist is playing at World Showplace.

Fingers crossed they come back!

I love the live music at GF; both the pianist and band.

You cannot have a band playing that close to guests in a COVID world, can you?

And of course Disney would never take advantage of Covid to cut expenses by cutting live entertainment in the future would they?

They play up on the balcony, overlooking the lobby, and away from people.

Actually they have been moved to the first floor since Enchanted Rose was opened. We just came home from GF Thursday and the platform for them was still there.

Hopefully temporary. A major part of my enjoyment of my hours spent sitting in that lobby. We shall see...

IF they are removed, it is only temporary during the pandemic.
