Over the weekend we shared the news that the Grand Floridian Orchestra Band will be let go in October.
The news was posted on their Facebook page announcing their dismissal.
Today Disney’s issued the following statement concerning the Grand Floridian Orchestra being dismissed.
As you may know, we are always evaluating and refining our offerings and creating new ideas to build upon Disney stories. This philosophy is in keeping with Walt Disney’s vision for continuing to grow and evolve, giving Guests a mixture of familiar and new experiences with each visit. In alignment with this philosophy, we have made the decision to end the limited-time run of the Disney Society Orchestra and Friends this fall with their last performance being on Saturday, October 3, 2020. We apologize for any disappointment that this may cause you and please be assured that we have shared all of your feedback with the appropriate Executive Leadership Teams.

Unfortunately, fan uproar still was not enough to prevent the release of the band. It will be strange to go into the Grand Floridian Resort and not hear them playing…
There is a petition online to save the Grand Floridian Orchestra. We are not affiliated with this petition in any way, we are just sharing it…
Will you miss the Grand Floridian Orchestra too? Let us know in the comment box below.
