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!

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?

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.

Five years from now it will be a trivia question.... What park used to be dry at WDW?

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 agree. I'd rather not stand in line with a tipsy person who may stumble, slur, press into my space (all extreme cases) I'd rather hem hot and miserable! Haha

I like to have a nice glass of wine with dinner, but, I wish that the MK would have stayed dry. This is the beginning, where does it end? 1 restaurant, then all of them, then beer being served around the MK at snack stands. It seems like another way for Disney to make more money.
