    They find the other parks offensive due to all the stumbling drunks wandering around and making a nuisance of themselves?

    Time to grow up, folks. This is going to change absolutely nothing about the MK experience.
    I disagree. This could potentially change the MK experience for a youngster who either sees the intoxicated fool who gets him/herself bagged up or the stroller that gets knocked over from the stumbler or maybe the family that has to watch someone puke from too much booze combined with heat. There's going to be one that takes it too far, there's always one. That's whats happened at our local amusement park. On our last trip to EPCOT, I was "lucky" enough to get stuck behind a group that were playing Drinking around the World. They were getting served more booze and it was clear to me that they shouldn't have been. I deal with drunks on a very frequent basis.

    I don't think this is a deal breaker for eating there though. I have faith that WDW security staff will be vigilant to any issues that occur as a result of serving alcohol.

    Re: Alcohol at Be Our Guest

    The point is that if people want to drink and visit the MK they've always had that opportunity. They could hop the resort loop any time they felt like it.

    Seems as though some feel like there has never been people drinking alcohol and visiting the MK.

    And we're talking one restaurant. For dinner. And very expensive booze.

    Again, see the last sentence of my post. Is it invisible or something...?!?!
    Whether they serve booze at MK or not, there are hundreds of Guests entering that park intoxicated every single day.

    Then what does "keeping it dry" even mean, then?

    If you're going to contradict yourself, don't be surprised when someone questions you about it.

    Contradict myself? Are you kidding me? After all that, you still didn't understand that I was basically agreeing with you?!?!

    And you used to "moderate" a site...?
    I guess "used to" is the operative here, huh?

    Unless you have a psychic connection to the afterlife, no one has any idea what Walt would want in 2012. If the Disney company stuck to what Walt wanted, they would have went bankrupt building the city of Epcot.

    Chillax people. There's one restaurant serving overpriced alcohol. Even if it's extended to every restaurant in Magic Kingdom, it's no different than going to your local Applebees or TGIF.

    I don't see thousands of drunks staggering through the other parks, and this will be no different. Between the "do what Walt wanted" and the "think of the children" crowd histerics, you would think they were giving out free herion.

    Right.

    Because "I tend to want it to stay dry" is pretty much what I said as well.


    Um, OK...

    As hard as it is to get those ressies, this will not be like Epcot, with drunken sots walking around. You will have to "Be a Guest" at Be My Guest, to get a beer or a wine.


    Overall, I sure don't mind this one. I DO, however, wish they would go back to a decency dress code.
    P.U.S.H.-A mantra MOST will not understand.

    Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.

    I'm surprised you had difficulties following his opinion. While I don't agree necessarily with his opinion, it was very simple, he wished MK stayed dry in honor of Walt's wishes for DL and the MK. And enough people have found other ways to enjoy alchol prior to entering the MK that it may not be necessary to add to the number of guests under the influence by now offering liquior at the MK.

    I made a mental note of that phrase. Pretty good one.

    I have to agree, even when Walt was alive the people he surrounded himself with were constantly trying to put him on path again, he was a dreamer and a bit of a hypocrite too. He loved his liquor, so says his DD and I still chuckle at the man with the mustache telling his employees not you.

    Chillax people.
    Aside from a moderator, that type of comment usually fuels the fires, generally not well accepted by members as it is very condescending.

    There's one restaurant serving overpriced alcohol. Even if it's extended to every restaurant in Magic Kingdom, it's no different than going to your local Applebees or TGIF.
    True enough. Yet didn't Applebees and TGIF always present themselves as an alcohol friendly venue? I'm pretty certain that was always in their business model plan unlike the MK's. While I'm OK with the decision I can appreciate those who are not pleased.

    I don't see thousands of drunks staggering through the other parks, and this will be no different. Between the "do what Walt wanted" and the "think of the children" crowd histerics, you would think they were giving out free herion.
    And I don't understand the direction of this portion of your post. No where here have I heard of any member even come close to saying 'thousands of drunks staggering through the other parks' so of course if that wasn't their claim of course you would be correct that the MK wouldn't be different because nobody beside you stated that. I've had the misfortune of having a very drunk group next to me on Soarin, it wasn't pleasant. It doesn't take a thousand to break the magic. I'm not seeing or hearing crowd hysterics either, where did that come from? Heroin? Now that is a huge leap. Wow.
    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.

    Re: Alcohol at Be Our Guest

    Yea, so then where did your problem with my initial post start?
    I said "tend to", not an emphatic "it has to" or The World will end. 'Cause, ultimately, there'll be drunks there whether it is or isn't dry.

    Right.

    Which ISN'T essentially agreeing with me.

    Re: Alcohol at Be Our Guest

    Yea, this is why I usually stay away from threads like this.
    No matter how carefully you think you might have stated something, there is always someone (or more) out there that will misinterpret and turn it into a train wreck.
    Probably need to go back to that policy...for more than just that one reason.
