    So long as your not a menace to castmembers or other patrons then you should be able to drink as much or as little as you would like.

    You would think. I hope this is the case. I haven't been to WDW since I was a child. I wasn't sure if they'd be strict about limitations being that are so family friendly.

    Yeah, I haven't been there since 1997. I remember beer being served in Germany at the Oktoberfest, but if there was booze anywhere else I totally missed it. Are there any pubs in the world showcase?

    there is the rose and crown pub in the UK area, but I think all the countries have somewhere to buy alcohol of some kind.

    For example, some of the most popular options you can get are margarittas in mexico (get the fiesta one!), saki in japan, grand marnier slushies in france.

    Most people when trying to DATW dont actually make it all the way around before they're completely trashed!

    I believe almost every pavilion around the WS has at least one beer choice.

    When the weather is hot, I like to make the frozen drink circuit. There are frozen drinks in Mexico, China, Italy, Morocco, and France that are all gooood.

    on that note, the "come a stranger, leave a little stranger" sign is gone from AC and the lights inside were completely dark last night.

    Word is the trucks rolled in for the rest of the artifacts on Thursday. Possibly first step toward demolition, but that's just speculation on my source's part.

    Also, looking like the extra Planet Hollywood store will be a Vinylmation store, judging by the decor on the windows/door.

    Fingers crossed, but with the way things have been going lately, I'm afraid it might be comedy like Celebrate Tonight brought dancing back to the Island.

    screamscape has a new rumour on what could be going on with PI - apparently Disney are considering some kind of night time show on the water at downtown which could involve the removal of some of the structures currently at PI.

    Thats about as far as the rumour goes so far, other than to expect the show to be the "usual suspects of water screens, fire, lights and more, in sync with music"

    World of color coming to downtown disney maybe? :confused3


    Sounds extremely unlikely to me. But if it was true, I assume they'd make it ticketed somehow?

    FWIW, I know someone who was "cut off" and asked to leave Epcot due to having too many drinks. (He and his father actually lol) Then again, I've seen completely trashed people operating scooters poorly while under the influence and truly being a menace to other patrons. It seems that the "rule" about public intoxication at WDW is sporadically enforced at best. It seems that if other guests complain, that is when it is enforced.

    If they can't control smoking in non-smoking areas, I doubt they will worry about alcohol, which they probably make a bundle from. (Except as mentioned when havoc is reached or someone complains.)

    In a bittersweet moment, I got to briefly see and give a well wish hug to ex-Sugar Snap. (She was a cheerleader for ESPN Weekend.) Always good to see the ex-crew. :)

    That's very interesting, because my friend has theorized, without any known info or rumors, that they wanted to open up the lake and create some kind of show.

    I actually have a story for the Save Pleasure Island Blog (that had not been published yet) about a fountain being built in the lake that would be visible to restaurant customers on the new PI as well as from the waterfront walkway on the West Side. The fountain show each evening would be synced to music and involve dancing waters, fire and water screens.

    This has not been finalized and there are logistical issues since the lake is a live lake and they would have to create a system to filter-out tiny organisms as well as not frying any of the fish out there!

    From what I've learned, the water taxi system from resorts north of Village Lake would continue to operate to the Marketplace but the internal water taxi system to PI and House of Blues/Cirque would be discontinued. They are considering options to replace that, one of them being a trolley system that goes back and forth. Concept drawings show yellow street cars.
