Yep, as the folks who were down last October know, I have no issue at all drinking with my parents. They rarely drink, but vacation is one of the few times they let loose. Back in Oct 2011, as soon as I arrived at the RV in Ft Wilderness, we started hitting the beers and almost got kicked out of Ft Wilderness before we even made it through our 1st night in ... we then celebrated by hitting the Poly for multiple Lapu Lapus I think another year we were almost banned from the Bay Lake Ferrys for being a little too 'happy' on the boat.

After I hit 21, I saw the World Showcase in a whole new light. Drinking around the world is great, but drinking/eating around the F&W Fest takes things to a whole other level.

Even with a wealth of Disney knowledge, I can honestly say I'm not familiar with the 'no pants' dance song ... It may make a great anthem though for this year's F&W Fest

The voting does look pretty close, but it also looks like there are a lot of votes sort of bunched up towards the last 3 weeks. May need to have two meets with the dates tied?

I may have done this once or twice. It is so much fun, you have to do it, there are so many drinks to try. I can't wait to do it again.

Something to keep in mind when planning to drink around the world.... Figure out what difficulty level you want to attempt in advance. For those who are familiar with the way video games describe the difficulty levels, I'll try and describe them a bit.

Easy Mode: Beer/Wine Only.
Normal Mode: Mixing Beer/Wine and Liquor drinks as your go around the world.
Hard Mode: Liquor Drinks at each Country.
God mode: Attempting to Drink at each Country/booth during F&W

All I gotta say about this....

Ya know what.... I wanna see GummiBerry Juice at F&W one of these years. Something that gets you "Bouncing Here and There and EVERYWHERE!" would be an awesome addition!

Booking our honeymoon cruise for a departure on 10/20.... so that's going to pretty much say when we'll be in the area and able to attend. We'll be doing the cruise at the start of our vacation/honeymoon trip.

I would LOVE some drinking around the world buddies. I think I could handle my own on the "liquor level" of difficulty mentioned previously, but doing it with friends is fun whereas I feel doing it alone just makes you look questionable alcoholic! I'll be there in May and October - definitely keeping an eye out for other DISers that might be up for beverages!

I don't drink Beer.... or Wine.... So it's Hard mode for me. It doesn't help that I LOVE La Cava.

I've been known to double-up on my Margarittas from there, walking out with one in each hand.


Maybe that's why I love the Maelstrom. The ride is SO much more fun when oyu have a decent buzz.

Maelstrom rules !!!

Two quotes that stick in my mind forever

"More often, you find Beauty and Charm"

"Back ,Over the falls"

I love the New Drama series "Vikings" on history channel
<3 Ragnar Lodbrok, Disney should have an automaton replica of him on Maelstrom, like Jack Sparrow on Pirates

I'm not much of a wine fan, so typically I'm all about setting it on hard mode. For the F&W fest though, I'd say I fall back into normal mode, as the Unibroue beer cart is usually out, and there's some other interesting beers I like to try along with the other various mixed drinks. Still hold La Cava's jalapeno margarita and China's Tipsy Duck as my fav World Showcase drinks.

A pretty obvious tip would be to make sure to keep eating some food throughout the day, as attempting mass drinking on an empty stomach is just a stupid idea ... unfortunately I'm prone to doing a ton of stupid things.

Ride wise, I love drinking around the world and then hitting Mission Space. I don't think the alcohol makes the spinning any different, but it does make the ride more immersive

If I did that it would certainly make the ride more immersive...when I spewed all over the place!

My daughter and I are going to the F&WF in late October. I have never heard of "drinking around the world" before. Is it just that you drink at all the different countries? Or is there a list of drinks or certain bars/restaurants that you get your drinks from? Also is there a really cool passport book you can get stamped to mark your journey???

This sounds like a blast!!!
