[QUOTE=toodycat;46195447]Hi. We are here right now. Of course it is beautiful and everyone is having fun, but there are some construction drawbacks:

1. Gasparilla's is closed. You can eat at the beach bar or get grab'n go items at Mizner's. Neither has a very appealing set of options and I am not sure what happens when it rains because the beach bar is, of course, outdoors. You can have breakfast at the GF Cafe. It will cost about $35 for two.

How bad is it with Gasparilla's closed? No covered seating to eat at close by? Are there Mickey waffles available for breakfast (a big deal for my DD)? How about refillable mug choices...hot chocolate? Is there only one soda/coffee station? Is pizza or chicken tenders available for lunch/dinner? How about Mickey ears ice cream? Sorry for so many questions but if most of these things are not available we will need to change resorts. We will be there 2nd week of November.

I believe guests now have the option to use QS credits at the Beach Pool Bar Grill (newly opened) or at Mizner's Lounge which now has EVERYTHING (literally check WDWMagic for pictures) that Gasparilla did.

One problem is if you are on the dining plan.. and you want an ice cream as a dessert.. you can't get it at the beach pool... and I do believe the refills on the mugs can only be done at the beach bar and won't be open 24/7

A bar with a refillable mug would be even more fun -- talk about the happiest place on earth!

I can imagine me right there with them -- probably singing the Pirates of the Caribbean -- Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me...yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me....

Just saw this on the wdwmagic site. It looks like Mizner's will have indoor and outdoor seating. Looks nice. Seems GF is doing whatever they can to accommodate. So looking forward to being back there in a month or so!

Thanks for the link. I looked at the menu which I guess is a lunch menu. Will there be any hot items served there especially at breakfast?

When will you be there? we are going Oct. 25th thru Nov 2nd... I can look once I am there. I have a feeling they will have popular breakfast items. We always eat at GF Cafe in the morning (due to some allergy and GI issues with our kids and me). I have a feeling mickey/ waffles is not a hard thing for them to supply at Mizners. d.

Thanks so much for this kind offer. We will be there the week after you. It is something how the "food part" of the resort has become such an important part of the experience for our kids.

Does this mean that Mizner's will not be serving drinks at night (or anytime) during the construction?

Along with some of the above posters, I'm also wondering what breakfast will mean at Mizner's.

My niece and I will have some overlapping days with you. I arrive on 21st, she arrives on 26, we depart on 30th -- if only school didn't get in the way, she would be there the entire stay!
