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 googled wine and cheese tasting at DCA...so was this at the Golden Vine Winery? I have never been in there. Can you (or anyone) tell me anything about it? Are kids allowed? Is it open year round?

I sound like a lush!

Thanks in advance!

I'm just jumping on the Tortilla Joe's bandwagon! I LOVE their margaritas! I consider myself pretty picky when it comes to margies (I make darn good margaritas at home), and considering TJs is a restaurant in DTD, they make a good one! Even their house margarita packs a punch (I usually get Cazadores).

Best margarita in all of the DLR IMHO.

Thanks...this is something I may break away from my husband and kid for a while and enjoy by myself while we are there. Hubby doesn't enjoy wine so this sounds like a lovely respite for just myself. Appreciate the info.

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).
Bummer, sorry you had such a negative experience. We love the CB but haven't been since Jan. That said, I would have simply asked for a rag to wipe the table myself. lol I'm like that tho, especially at a bar. And I wouldn't go to CB for beer, I'd go to the beer truck for that, better beer at the beer truck IMO and I prefer a cocktail anyway. I'm trying to remember what we had at the CB but can't remember the names, we love to go there and get a drink for DBF and I and some lobster nachos, the girls will either sit with us or hang on the pier and ride some rides. Hopefully things will be different when we go back to our CB.

Rosa Regale is available at WDW, there was a discussion on that on the Budget Boards. Are you saying I can go to World Market and get it there too?? Because if so I'm leaving now. LOL

That stuff is supposed to be really good, of course that's what I heard about the Magicale too. I looked a few places and didn't find the Rosa Regale but I still want some! LOL

Ok so here are the 2 drinks I've had at the Cove Bar, both were very delish!!
Malibu-mer Sunset - Light rum, peach schnapps, creme de cassis, creme de banana and a splash of orange and pineapple juice. $6.49
Shark Attack - Dark rum, orange juice, pineapple juice and a splash of grenadine. 7.25
This is what DBF had
Californian Calypso - Light rum, creme de banana, and pina colada mix. $6.49
and while there we share this....
Lobster Nachos - Tender lobster pieces atop corn tortilla chips, smothered in black beans, tomato, roasted Pablano peppers, cilantro and jack and cheddar cheeses. $10.99
and the girls get water or a soda to drink. DD10 likes Shirley Temples, she gets one of those, DD14 just gets a glass of water usually but sometimes she gets a soda.
Sorry I don't have photos of these, oh and the prices may be wrong, I just copied them from the allears site and that menu listing is from 2009.

Good Questions about kids this comes up every now and then. In DCA kids are allowed to sit at tables but not at the bar itself, when it has seating at the bar.
