Gasparilla Island Grill Reopens

Just in time for the peak holiday travel season, a Disney resort restaurant has returned to service.  

Disney's Grand Floridian Resort

Back in October, Gasparilla Island Grill located at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa closed for a two month refurbishment project.  Website is reporting that the refurb is complete and restaurant has reopened.  

The most visible change is the addition of two Coca-Cola Freestyle machines.  The machines are identical to those installed last summer in the Disney Vacation Club member lounge at Epcot.  Coca-Cola Freestyle dispensers allow users to choose from dozens of beverage combinations, mixing flavored syrups (vanilla, cherry, etc.) with a number of base soda flavors.

WDWMagic also reports that the restaurant menu has been updated, although no details were provided.  

Gasparilla Island Grill is open 24 hours per day with made-to-order items available until 11:30pm and a variety of grab-and-go selections offered during the overnight hours.

I like those freestyle machines and having 3 of them will make it easier to get drinks quickly.
