Re: Alcohol at Be Our Guest
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'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.

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.
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.
