Mmm beer. But seriously though, I don't mind it. It's not like they are selling it at quick serve locations.

I see why people would be upset with it being against Walts wishes, I'm sure the protest would be noted but there are always going to be other people who do not mind the alcohol sales that will gladly take the ADR when someone cancels as already noted, it's in one part of the park, it's not like they can carry it around the park, I love Walts ideas and wishes and that's created a wonderful place for kids and adults, alcohol sales are going to be such a small part though, they already have it during private functions so having in one place isn't going to destroy the park and over all what Walt stood for

It is just in the one restraunt so I dont think it is a big deal. Just because they sell it does not mean you have to drink it!

Someone made a good point on the Facebook discussion....

It bothers me, but it's not any different than people leaving MK to go to 'Ohana and drinking there for dinner. Then they come back to MK anyway.

I say those people are missing something. No one knows what he would have done today. As far as alcohol in the parks, he was the one that created Club 33 in DL.

I wonder if all those people go to EPCOT? It isn't what he wished for.

I understand both sides of the debate. I wouldn't want to go against Walt's wishes for a family friendly park, but I really don't see drinks being offered with dinner at a sit down restaurant as going against that idea. Now if they were selling jello shots in the hub (kind of like that other Orlando park) then you might be pushing it just a bit too far. I don't think this is going to result in drunken and disorderly conduct any more than drinking at a resort restaurant or lounge and showing up at MK.

DOes not bother me at all. Times change. The Disney company is running a business and the powers-that-be must feel this is a way to generate income. It is only one restaurant in the park.

I may be the wrong person to ask because I hope they start serving alcohol on "It's a Small World."

Steve, sounds like you have a good team at the school helping to address Ethan's needs.
First step to helping, is understanding the problem and it sounds like huge strides are being made to do just that.
We are only here to offer words of support and encouragement... You guys are the ones who really make the difference in his life.
Good luck on the first steps of a long journey of support and love.
When you need us, we'll be here.
Ethan should be very comforted to know he has parents that truly love and care for him.

That certainly would be a HUGE revenue generator....

Evening guys,

just became the assistant coach to DS's JV middle school soccer team. They created 2 teams and his team only had one coach while the other had 3. Didn't seem fair to me.

Tonight we are off to his year-end party for his club team.

Hi guys. Sorry for no updates, crappy connection in the room. Just met up with Randall here at Pop. We are going to try and meet for breakfast in the morning.

Our last day here and we head out tomorrow. Pop is definitely worth the money and the food court is better than some of the moderates we have stayed at.

I'll post some pics when we get home.

It doesn't get any cheaper. $1000 for dance a year for one child.

He is trying to cover up so that others might not realize he is struggling. I guess during one of the tests when it came to a writing part of the exam he dropped his pencil over and over as a way of just trying to not have to deal with it. We had to sign papers for the change in curriculum and they will be taking him out of his normal class room for reading writing and math to have more time and a different way to teaching things to him. There were all very nice and have his bet interests at heart. They kept saying that they could help him. I honestly feel like a burden has been lifted!! We have another meeting with them on the 28th not sure what that will be about but I dont think it will be quite as stressful as this one was. We had the principal, teacher, speech pathologist, couselor, reading interventionalist, and writing interventionalist all in there with there packets of infor laying it out to us! Whew! I am glad it is over, but evenmore glad that we can help him!!!
Glad things are moving forward in the right direction.

I could live with MK being alcohol free, but for me, I can't vote against alcohol. It's a rule from of my catholic classes
