I think funball is right about the price, which is why the port & chocolate tasting for $12 was such a good deal...ask about Magicale and they'll pour you a sample . I bought a bottle of it for my mom at Golden Vine in DCA, and it's really funny the way you get it back to your hotel! You're not allowed to walk through the park with it so they have an employee carry it for you to the exit gate. We were staying at the Grand and it was funny to walk all the way to the back exit into the hotel with the wine person carrying our bottle of Magicale. As I recall, it was $48 for the bottle.

The guy who hosted our port & chocolate tasting told us you can get almost the same wine at World Market. He gave us the name but I can't remember it now; disneylvr2 has it. I think it's about $26.

I kind of wonder if it is because of a certain expectation
I'd say go for it!

Cove bar

I hate my first post on this thread to be negative, especially since a cocktail mixed + Disney = perfection in my book, but I had to give a quick Cove Bar review.

Now, I have been enjoying the Cove Bar for a few years now. I always found it quiet, the bartenders nice, and they had a good selection of beers and wines. Also, I remember a time long ago when you go free popcorn there (even though you had to pay at the beer truck - this obviously didn't last too long). I think the days of the Cove Bar being a great relaxing spot for an adult beverage have passed.

I went yesterday afternoon after meeting up with my sister and bro-in-law after work. We arrived to the CB around 4:30pm. More than half the tables were dirty, as well the chairs. Dirty napkins were also all over the floor. This was very UN-Disney. It was...gross...for lack of a better word. We managed to find a semi-clean and acceptable table and sat down. After waiting for about 5-10 minutes our server came up and I asked what beers they had on draft. She said they no longer had beers on tap and just had bottles. However, they were out of Newcastle, Blue Moon, etc etc etc. Basically, they had Bud Light. No bueno for me. We then asked for a minute to try and decide what to drink. The sun was starting to come down and directly hit us so we asked to move the table awning for shade. They couldn't do this...So, dirty environment, no drink selection, slow service, and the sun blinding us. This, my Dis friends, did not = perfection...

We ended up just leaving at that point and goint to beer truck for some Tower 10 IPA on draft. It was good as always! I guess the other advantage of the beer truck is the variety of food options in that area. I was able to get a salad for dinner (to feel less guilty about my beer drinkin', hehe).
