    I've never tried it but if I did it would probably kill me. Or I'd make it half way and end up in the restroom for the rest of the day

    I think it can be done but you really will have to pace yourself and make is an all day thing. That way it can be fun and also alot safer than making it in an hour.

    I've heard that starting in Mexico is best because Germany is the undoing of most people and it is better to get it out of the way early.

    This is the highlight of my DH's trip every year, and he does complete it every year, but with one cheat. He does not have a beer in America because he can get that anytime, but he usually has more than one in Great Britain and/or Germany.

    It is an all day event, and he plans his snacks and meals accordingly.

    I know this is an old post, but I was amazed to see this on here. I have a great friend that was a CM and he told me about drinking around the world. I have done it twice, once with him and once on 12-31-1999. Was in the park all day until after midnight and had to do something to pass the time. That was the easier time as I had plenty of time, and from the looks of some, company.

    I say you should do drinking around the world as quickly as possible, before the drink catches up with you, if you know what I mean... I would start in Mexico, because you know what they say, "Beer before liquor, never been sicker, liquor before, beer, you're in the clear."

    Tony,

    This is the way it was explained to me by a friend that is a former CM:

    In the World Showcase in Epcot, you have to buy and drink an adult beverage in every country as you walk around the showcase. Now in reading some of the posts on here, there are some that would say you have to drink a beer in every country. But in some countries, there are other options with wine and liquor. My friend explained it as the signature drink or drink made in each country. You can't drink a bud light at each country.

    There is not an official list that I know of so I guess that leaves it up to the individual as to what the signature drink and/or preference would be in each country. The key is to finish the drink from each country.

    Mexico = Margarita
    Japan = Sake
    Germany = dark beer
    France = Wine

    Hope this helps.
