I think booze would make that hellish ride a little less tolerable. LSD on the other hand, would make it a frightening experience.

Beer and wine won't cut it for most people being subjected to hordes of screaming children on a hot, sticky day - they need to go straight for the high abv vodkas and rums.

Repeat job shirking repeat stupid repeat ON SAME repeat PAGE repeat incompetent repeat idiots repeat.... REPEAT.

If this was actually a paid advert you'd best start charging enough to sponsor everybody for a month on them.

Makes sense. Enjoyed a beer in "England" at Epcot on a couple of occasions.

SeaWorld used to be an Anheuser-Busch property; I don't recall any actual beer being sold there under their tenure. Not sure what they sell now that InBev spun the parks off...

how about ether instead

Ah, devil ether. It makes you behave like the village drunkard in some early Irish novel. Total loss of all basic motor function. Blurred vision, no balance, numb tongue. The mind recoils in horror, unable to communicate with the spinal column. Which is interesting because you can actually watch yourself behaving in this terrible way, but you can't control it.

The wife and I have been going to Universal Orlando for years, where alcohol is served everywhere, and yet have never seen anyone just hammered drunk staggering around. It's too expensive and there's just too many other things to do for it ever to be a big problem. Same deal with Magic Kingdom I bet.
 
2012-09-15 02:28:04 PM
Blasphemy.

Walt didn't want alcohol in the main theme park themselves but were available outside nearby. Keep the main grounds free of any potential conflicts.

You can get all the booze you want at California Adventure or Downtown Disney, or in Club 33 inside (but it's private).

Have a little respect for tradition and the founder's wishes fer crissakes.

Last year I tried to walk around the lake and down a beer in every "country" on the way through. I made it to about 6 countries before I had to stop...

Yeah. I love beer, but I have never been able to drink more than 6 at a time. Typically just have a single 12oz homebrew every evening after the kid is in bed.

My Boobies in wrong thread. I feel sooooo proud. I'm thinking about applying for a job as a Fark administrator.

No doubt it will be reasonably priced.

A couple times at the resorts I have seen drunk idiots trying to start fights in the middle of all the kids playing.

Doesn't happen often, but when it does it makes me want to kill drunk idiots.

Last year it was $4 for a Yeungling, at the various carts in Epcot. Better priced than a football game, not as good as a local bar.

You can get all the booze you want at California Adventure, Downtown Disney, and any of the Disney resort hotels, so I don't see why adding it to the rest of the park is a big deal.

Anyway I swear when we went in 1997 or 98 I had a mint julep somewhere over by the Pirates of the Carribbean.

Ya know, normally I don't see six foot tall rats until AFTER I've been drinking.

Non-alcoholic Mint Julep.

There were already two places at Disneyland where you could get wine or beer, not to mention the D-land hotel that's just a short Monorail ride away.
 
2012-09-15 03:06:49 PM
I don't see the big deal, they serve alochol in all the other parks actually, EPCOT has plenty of places to grab beer, wine, hard cider, or mixed drinks in many of the resturants around the 'world' cove. So the 'outrage' is kinda just , amusing.

They've had booze at Disneyland's Club 33 for years. You have to pay $25,000 for a membership, but still.

I've only been there once, for brunch, so I can neither confirm nor deny. But it was a very fine brunch. And we got to hit the rides an hour before the gates opened.

You know I was actually surprised by booze prices in California Adventure at Disneyland, 6 bucks for a decent beer isn't more than a lot of places in LA in general, and 8 bucks for the awesome slushie margaritas is pretty reasonable.

Makes the lines reasonable too.

For the first time in its 41-year history, the Magic Kingdom will serve beer and wine daily to guests, a Disney executive said Thursday.



Farking cocksuckers never did that when I was a kid. *sigh*
 
2012-09-15 03:53:49 PM
The decision created a new class of Disney workers. "Vomiteers" will follow inebriated guests around, ready to throw sawdust on spew and restrain drunken yokels before they dump on rides and attempt to gang-rape various animatronic attractions.

Grab a breast
There are tourists to molest
When you're blotto

Slap an ass or two with zest!

My best friend and I were taking her spawn into Magic Kingdom after a ferry ride from Fort Wilderness. The kid had fallen asleep, so we were imbibing beer (bought at the campground, owned by Disney) waiting for her to wake up. Ferry operators were fine with it, but warned we couldn't take it into the park. No biggie. We're finishing the beers as we walk up and security starts giving us the stank eye. Made sure to do a very thorough search of the stroller. Wonder what security thinks of this new policy?

Why do you think all the parents are constantly dragging their kids to Epcot's World Pavilion?

Epcot is filled with restaurants which serve beer and wine. And of course the Disney Towntown (ripoff extravaganza) area serves beer and wine all over. Probably many of their restaurants do. I'm not sure how this is some revelation really. Disney certainly isn't known as a value for money place so I'm sure they'll be happy to provide another way for people to pay through the nose.

Yeah. I love beer, but I have never been able to drink more than 6 at a time. Typically just have a single 12oz homebrew every evening after the kid is in bed.

I have circled the lake twice, even stopped in England for a flight of scotch.

If you really want to freak the fark out, try the Tiki Birds on LSD.

Err...Umm... I mean... I would imagine that it would be pretty intense.

I had a glass of white wine at Euro Disney, along with, of all things, a brie quesadilla at their American Southwestern themed food court. It was pretty awesome to stand there, amidst the Tower of Babel experience with Disney mascots while drinking. It was a good wine, too.

Remember, England is only just one of the countries in the UK. You have to have one for each of England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland every time you hit the Rose & Crown. To fail to do so is to fail to drink around the world correctly.
