    Does Disney really frown on gambling?

    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Disney doesn't sell lottery tickets at their Hess stations, or anywhere else on property.

    Really Walt? Disneyland is MY land? Why would I want a silly little land when I can have the WORLD.

    Wow! Never knew that. Does Disney own Hess or is it like Planet Hollywood on Disney property?

    Guess if I was Disney I'd want guests blowing money on Disney purchases vs lotto tickets.

    You also won't find gum at any of the Hess stations, either. Nor will you find it sold anywhere on property, either. Disney took a page out of the airports' playbook and eliminated one extra mess to have to clean up. Don't see it, there's less stuck to people's shoes or smushed into the cracks between floor tiles or sidewalks.

    While we're on it, I don't believe they carry alcohol at the gas stations, either.

    I knew about gum at airport and at Disney not about Hess though. I always brought enough gum for flying for my kids from home.

    Beer and wine at least is available at Hess.
