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

The wine person said that we were good for business! We asked questions and got lots of good info, including the tip to try TOT right after our port tasting , which did indeed enhance the ride quite significantly . We mentioned wanting to try a few wines and they were happy to indulge us, so we got a real deal from our $12 tasting, including extra chocolate and double glasses on anything we liked a lot. We did tip very well. So you just might be able to try one of the wines you prefer if you happen to get a good host.
Great tip...thanks!

No big deal...just curious.

Can you just steal one and send it to me? Tell the bartenders your "friend" is going to be there celebrating her 40th birthday and wants to be prepared with her drink order!

I asked about the menu because it was new a few weeks back. Our server said it might change because it was made of ideas from higher ups and when things don't sell they will drop off. He said the food there(appetizers and light fare) was going to get the same treatment.

Funball is right it is a long menu, it isn't a list like a regular menu, it is a page per drink.

Well I don't want to get your hopes up, but there's some time until your trip so maybe Funball will get it up before you are on your way there.

Skiingfast is right the drinks change out so fast i was there when the cm told us this, even If could get photos of each page and post them , who knows the time I have them up to view those drinks might be changed out! So your better off just being surprised when you look for your cocktail!!

First off, this is the best thread ever, thanks, I have a lot of catching up to do at DLR

Second, I'm not sure if this is true at DLR but at WDW, my wife often will order a drink at <insert random bar we staggered into> and ask if she could have the glow cube with the drink, even if its not the designated glow cube drink. Inevitably they say yes. Sometimes they charge her the price for the drink with the glow cube (rather than what her drink would have cost), sometimes they charge separately for the cube, sometimes they just give it to her for free. Suffice to say, we have a BUNCH of glowcubes!

Forgive me if everyone already knows this tidbit and I'm at the back of the line catching up.

When I was reading about DLR for our recent trip, I was under the impression that 1) Ariel's Grotto did not serve alcohol and 2) you could get a drink at the Cove Bar above AG, but you had to drink it there.

We ate at AG last Friday night. I bought a glass of wine at the CB and they let me bring it down to AG. They had full drink menu available at AG. I ordered a 2nd wine and my hubby had a cocktail.

So, if you were in the dark, like me, you can order all the alcohol served at the CB while you are dining at AG. Easy.

This question does come up, thanks for confirming other reports.
