Ya know... Thinking about this... I just had a REALLY scary thought.

Their logic was "It only makes sense in a French Restaurant".



So if that's the case.... Why don't Italian wines make sense in an Italian Restaurant?


Or you know.... Mead and beers at a Colonial Tavern?


Or even worse.... 'How does it make sense to have a tavern without drinks?'.... so that opens up Gaston's and Tortuga.


I guess what i'm saying is that I don't really trust the current management to avoid the creep in the availability from opening this door.

That was actually my very first thought.

Quote from my 15 yo not 5 minutes ago when I mentioned this to him and my 18yo DD:
Quote:
Great. People better not be barfing all over Dumbo.
We're not a drinking family as you can tell. (nothing against drinking from me - I'm allergic to wine and dislike the taste of beer, so the kids really don't think that much of it)

Are there any spinning rides in the other 3 parks?.... ah, yes, mission space, Toy Story mania and Dinoland has a couple... Don't think I've ever seen an issue at any of these. I don't think this change will cause any issues. I'm sure those who want to drink in the MK already sneak in their beverage of choice as it is. This may deter that if they know they can just go to a restaurant to grab an ale or vin.

I think it is an excellent move. It sets this restaurant apart as an experience...CRT remains signature with the princesses and this is turning into a nice dining experience, wine, a nice menu, beautiful castle...my only surprise is it is not two credits for dinner! I don't think it will creep in elsewhere...I think this will be part of the draw long-term and how one decides between CRT and BOG...a character experience or a dining experience. I also think it is unlikely people will be getting drunk on beer an wine over an hour dinner...the beer is not the bud light six pack generation...so I am not seeing a drinking around the work scenario.

Big thumbs up from me!

And the food shots on the blog look divine!

Call me naive but have there been widespread issues at the parks where alcohol is currently sold? At disney prices and with the unique unmatched once in lifetime experience it offers I would be surprised to hear of many alchohol related issues or people becoming drunk and reckless.

there have been some - most in EPCOT either during F&WF or just people "drinking around the world"

But in EPCOT there are booths where one can get wine/beer/mixed drinks/shots/etc. and then move to the next booth, etc. .... here it will only be served to people at tables eating dinner. Could someone drink an entire bottle of wine and gets tipsy? Sure, but I don't think it will lead to the same issues

That said, I am sad to see Walt's vision messed with (I know, I know, not the first time) and I don't think it would have killed them to keep the one part dry .... but our family is fans of wine and beer in general so our next trip I am sure we will take advantage of this

Whatever. Thrilled to pieces at the menu, the high-end choices they've made with the wine list...it's spectacular. Just what one expects from an "experience" restaurant. Besides, those Champagne bottles are in the movie in that scene...can't leave them out!

I was quite pleased with the menu prices as well .... strip steak was the only item that didn't seem like a really good price and even that wasn't crazy ...

.... well those light up souvenier cups are a bit pricey

"And just an FYI don't know how accurate BUT a pin collector site is reporting that the new FLE-AP pins are being released at the AP preview days 11/3-4 and 11/10-11"


I just read this on a Facebook group I am in.
If this is the case we definitely won't be able to have a sneak peak bc the 3rd is our MK day!

It makes sense that these are the dates. No word yet on passholder site though.
