MK no longer "dry"????

Saw a story on the Disney Food Blog that they will be offering Beer and Wine in the new Be Our Guest restaurant in the MK.

Is that spinning sound Walt turning over in his grave? Discuss.

I was coming here to ask what everyone thought.

I'm not really for it as MK was meant to be a "dry" park.

On the flip, Gaston's should have alcohol to fit its theme like in the movie.

If I had to say yay or nay, I'm definitely against it. It should remain as a dry park. If you want to drink, go to Epcot.

So what your thoughts on mk serving Alcohol for the first time

So they will be serving beer and wine at be our guest it only be available during dinner. SO do you think they should serve alcohol in the new restaurant or should they not serve alcohol.

I'm going to combine this with another thread on the same topic. It's breaking news!

I liken a nice glass of wine as much as the next person, but I really wish that the powers that be had stuck with Walt's original wishes.....a 'dry' MK. I know others will disagree, but that's just how I feel. As soon as that can of worms is opened, I see the other restaurants following suit.

MK no longer a dry park

According to the Disney Parks Blog the new Be Our Guest restaurant in Fantasyland will serve select wines and beers to compliment the French cuisine. Is anyone else surprised by this?

Beer list

For the curious, the Disney Food Blog now has a list of the beer and wine offerings posted.

Most wines appear to be from France, but somehow there is a Lasseter wine as well.

I'm sad about this decision. I like MK being alcohol free and don't see any reason why they need to break that tradition. I agree with what others have said, it won't be long before other places in MK will serve alcohol too.

I don't drink except for a very rare glass of wine a few times a year, so I don't know if that makes me biased, but I just don't see the need to do this. I loved the fact that MK was dry, not so much because of me, but for kids whose parents tend to drink too much...MK was somewhere they didn't have to worry about it and just have fun. I don't know, it's sad, it was an ideal of Walt's, they should have let it be.
