    I was just reading a review of the CR here on the disboards and read that there is a coke machine that is half the price on the 3rd floor. :cool1: I wasn't sure how recent that review was. Has anyone found that coke machine, and, if so, where is it? Caffeine is a must for me, so this is important news! :goodvibes

    I really can't answer your question but had a suggestion. I would have GardenGrocer bring some groceries to your room. (gardengrocer.com) The minimum used to be $40 but it's been a few years for us. We always do this when going to Disney and it's saves so much time. We have used them around 5 times and they gave stellar service every time. We've even had wine delivered which was very nice! The last I recall, bottled water in the parks was $3 or $4 per bottle. There was no way the 4 of us were going to pay that. We got a 24 pack of water for around $6! I'm sure the soda is just as high. We always carried a bottle of water into the park with us. We saved a ton.

    Just a thought...by the time you either travel to go get soda or take a taxi, it doesn't become cost affective. Plus you lose out on Disney/park time as well.

    I'm sure someone on here will answer your original question. Good luck. (we are coffee drinkers so I know what you mean about caffeine. We had Folgers delivered as part of our groceries..LoL)

    Yes it's true and that machine is located on the 3rd floor of the Tower.

    WHY is this machine only charging $1.25? What is the catch? Did someone forget to program it to the outrageous fee?

    From what I read, it appears to be mainly used by Disney employees.

    Yes, I thought about that after I posted the question. But I did read about it on the internet, so I guess it wasn't a total secret. oops! :blush:
