After 32 years, the Grand Floridian Orchestra is hanging up it’s instruments October 3rd. The group announced Saturday that it’s October 3rd performance would be it’s last. “It’s hard to find the words but, sadly, our days at the Grand Floridian are over,” they wrote on their Facebook page.
Normally, the sextet plays for guests at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. However, since August, they’ve been playing at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. They were playing the music for “Beauty & the Beast – Live on Stage.” Their post continues “So after 32 years of playing together and playing music we love… we’re done. We are so thankful for the opportunity to play in a beautiful setting for the hotel guests and friends we have met and made over the years. We’ll never forget you and how wonderful you’ve made us feel. We will miss you.”
Disney confirmed after the post, that Disney decided to end their performances in an effort to grow and evolve. Fans everywhere expressed their disappointment with the firing. Are you sad to see them go?
