you can be in your room at the BC - before the crowds even get to the bus stop or monorail.

Haha I am travelling solo next year and I really want to do this. I'm just a bit concerned that I will look like a pathetic raving alcoholic or as living up to the 'Brits abroad' stereotype

Yeah, but they're also not going to ragers or barhopping all night. At WDW with your family, it should be pretty easy to follow good advice and stay hydrated/keep food in your stomach. No one wants to feel sick at WDW!

Five Hour Energy

I am not so sure that the Five Hour Energy drink is a good idea. Other than that, wish that I was joining the fun.

We are doing this in November for my youngest who is turning 21 -- she's bringing a few friends, a couple of cousins and her brother and sister - there will be 11 of us altogether! She is ridiculously excited about it. We are planning a full day at Epcot and to definitely share drinks so we can still enjoy the rides and park attractions. Wondered if anyone has suggestions for dinner? We don't want anything too expensive but would like a place we can all possibly sit together.
Also we are thinking of maybe walking over to BW to Jellyrolls or the ESPN -- good or bad idea?

Take tons of photos!! When my girlfriends and I did this in 2010 we brought disposable cameras; if we used the digital 90% of the pictures would have been deleted cause someone didn't like the face they were making. When we got home we made a scarp book, listed our drinks (2 per country), snacks, shows, little jokes. The best part was seeing the photos, for the first time and the progression from silly to sillier as the day went on! Hope you girls have fun!!

Get the tequila flight at Mexico's La Cava de Tequila bar.

I probably wouldn't have felt like I'd been hit by a truck the next day if I had done them!

My DD(23) & I are doing this in about a month!!! So excited!

It has been several years since our last trip and she was only 17 at the time so not a lot of drinking at all. This time we will be looking forward to spending the whole day there sampling the F&WF, although just the food bits since we will already be drinking. And we will be enjoying all the entertainment while we tour the world!

And we got decorated bags to carry with us to have CM's sign!!

Tell the bartenders/servers at the margarita carts or whatever that someone is 21 or whatever you're celebrating. The more festive you act, the more liquor you get! Haha.

We went for my daughter's 22nd and 23rd birthdays. She's a September birthday also (the 11th) so we just waited a few extra weeks and did it during the food and wine festival. We both ate and drank over a long weekend, did t-shirts, and honestly a lot of sharing because we just couldn't eat and drink that much at one time so in order to try a lot of different drinks/food items we shared. The fun part on her 22nd we surprised her with booking a pirate room at cbr. She was a big poc fan in high school and they hadn't been open very long at that time. Plus it put us on a short bus ride to epcot. If you take her friends with you I'd just be sure they're also 21 or you've spoken to their parents so as not to suddenly have an ugly talk with someones parent...just in case.
