The Enchanted Rose Lounge at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, Walt Disney World, is one of Walt Disney World’s newer restaurants just in time for the 50th Anniversary. Inspired by the look and feel of Beauty and the Beast, this new lounge is all about gilded glamour. With elegant small plates and fancy drinks, plan to start your evening here. Whether you’re hosting a bachelorette party, meeting up with friends, or popping in for a cocktail with relatives, you’re sure to find something here that you love. Here’s a round-up of everything we tried while dining amidst some gorgeous decor.
Enchanted Rose Lounge at The Grand Floridian
Enchanted Rose Lounge has taken over the location previously held by Mizner’s Lounge at Grand Floridian on the second floor. And is part of a larger renovation to the Grand Floridian with a more Disney-focused overhaul. With an upgrade at Citricos and add new DVC Villas at the Grand Floridian, we think this lovely lounge was a great first step. The Enchanted Rose is open daily from 1pm until midnight.
The Enchanted Rose Lounge Rooms
This charming new lounge at The Grand Floridian Resort and Spa combines elements from Beauty and the Beast in a classy, upscale atmosphere. Consisting of four Lounge spaces, Enchanted Rose Lounge is sure to satisfy any mood.
The Ballroom houses the main bar with stools and small tables near windows. The whole space circles a large chandelier reminiscent of Belle’s gold ballgown. If you’re feeling a little extra fancy and social then grab a seat at the bar and settle in. The Garden Room offers a beautiful dark green space, littered with velvet chairs and large french doors that lead to the Garden Patio Room. The Patio room is a set of tables on the balcony offering views of the outdoor gardens at The Grand Floridian and a great place to pass the time on beautiful days. One of our more favorite spaces was The Library, featuring rich slate blue hues on the walls, golden velvet furniture, and ornaments one might find in the Beast’s Library.
The Library at Enchanted Rose Lounge
Rich blues and large windows offer a cozy, subdued area in which to sip to your heart’s content! With an extensive, EXTENSIVE, Wine Selection, this is the room you’ll want to sit in for easy access. In this room, you can simply get lost in beautiful artwork, the intricate furniture, book titles, and items decorating the shelves. Here you’ll find Mrs. Pott’s Teapot, Cogsworth Clock, a handheld mirror, Lumiere’s Candelabra, and every other object that later comes to life in Beauty and the Beast.
The Garden Room at Enchanted Rose Lounge
The hunter-green Garden Room brings you right into the Enchanted Forest. With gold-covered branch chandeliers, rich velvet seating, and the softest gold lighting you will feel like you are surrounded by forest. Even with a full wall of French doors leading to the Garden Patio, bringing in tons of light, this room has a cozy vibe that you just want to sit in all day.
Enchanted Rose Drinks at Walt Disney World Grand Floridian
We headed to the Enchanted Rose because we had evening plans for Disney Villains After Hours over at Magic Kingdom and wanted to get a little bite to eat, but not enough to spoil a late dinner. Let us be clear here. While we are quintessential foodies, we’re not necessarily big eaters or drinkers. Especially when we know snacks are on the way. So, we only got a few drinks and truffle fries not really knowing what to expect.
Drinks at Enchanted Rose Lounge
The drinks here are mostly all themed! Check out the Enchanted Rose Lounge menu for details on each one. We loved that everything had a Beauty and the Beast vibe. If this Disney classic is a favorite you can’t go wrong. Here were the drinks we tried and what we thought.
Floral Bitter Beauty
This gorgeous red drink is named perfectly. If you’ve ever had the Italian liqueur Campari, then you know what you’re in for. This drink is wonderfully bitter, with a tiny bit of sweetness courtesy of the Elderflower. The Floral Bitter Beauty is a mix of Hendrick’s Gin, St~Germain Elderflower Liqueur, Campari, Aperol, lemon, and soda. Really, I absolutely LOVED this drink. But, unlike the Island Rose, it is very very noticeably alcoholic and may be too strong for some. If you’re used to Negroni’s then you’ll be fine. And even though this one was an excellent choice I would have needed like another hour to actually finish this drink. And way more truffle fries.
Food at the Enchanted Rose
The Enchanted Rose serves small plates from 5pm-10pm. We love stopping here in the evenings on our way over to Magic Kingdom to grab a quick bite before entering the Park. This is especially helpful if it’s on a day when we aren’t in the parks all day and just heading over for a special event like Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. Now that the pathway between the Grand Floridian Resort and Magic Kingdom is open, that makes it even more convenient if you’re up for an evening stroll. The food menu at the Enchanted Rose is the perfect accompaniment for the drinks served here. You can find the food menu for Enchanted Rose here.
The Enchanted Rose Lounge has small plates of things like flatbread, appetizers, and fries. Frankly, being girls that have gone to college, we know the value that carbs like bread and potatoes can bring to an evening filled with alcohol. So fries were a natural choice. Besides, being from Cleveland, we’re also a little spoiled by Michael Symon’s Lola Fries with rosemary and wanted to compare. We were not disappointed! These fries are perfectly thick, fried to perfection, and not overly so. Topped with Rosemary, Shaved Black Truffles, and 18-Month Aged Parmesan, it was served with this lovely light aioli. Try this appetizer and your next visit and you won’t be disappointed!
Enchanted Rose Housemade Flatbread
The Flatbread at Enchanted Rose is not only delicious but perfectly shareable. With broccolini, mushrooms, tomato, and fennel sausage, this was a great addition to our truffle fries for a quick bite before heading over to Magic Kingdom. Be aware though, this one is a bit pricey. While we loved being able to enjoy our food in a relaxing atmosphere before entering the chaos of the Parks, $18 is a bit steep for a flatbread, unless, of course, it’s the best you’ve ever had. Yes this was good, but we’ve had better.
Enchanted Rose Lounge Menu
This Beauty and the Beast-inspired menu is beautifully decorated, with illuminated pages and little illustrations throughout. We would have just loved to be here all day to try everything. The drinks and foods were all carefully chosen to match the theme and looked amazing.
