    Great thread! I totally agree with the taking it slow and enjoying yourself.....it is vacation.:goodvibes This trip is our 4th and we are splurging on a stay at the Poly. We plan on spending a lot of time at our resort and enjoying our beautiful sorroundings.

    Bolded statement = 100% FALSE. All the theme parks (Any Disney, Any Universal, Sea World, Busch Gardens, etc) will give you free ice water if you ask.

    :goodvibes

    Oh, to keep up with the tips, in Epcot's Refreshment Station, try the Beverly first. Then try all the good stuff. ;)

    Yes, but you forgot that at all parks but Disney, the ice and water may be free but there is a $2.50 handling charge (just kidding...of course it's free at the others too).

    Don't put too much Beverly in your cup! If you have ever been to the Coca Cola museum in Atanta, it is the same Beverly. Everyone does need to try it at least once.

    Nope... the real baobob tree is on the left in front of Kusafari Bakery (if you are looking at safaris). It has a painted white trunk.

    The tree on your right, with the gourds hanging down is a sausage tree (Kigelia). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sausage_tree
    Some of the dried gourds actually hang on the Pangani Forest Tail where the meerkats are.

    My Cast Member Tip:

    Do Not Try to See Everything In One Trip. It will not be fun and you will run yourself dead.

    It is Coke from Italy (I think) and has a slightly strange taste.

    Don't just ask any CM when characters will be out. We asked about Jasmine in Morocco and were told she would be in a room around the back of Morocco (it had a character meeting hand) at 7pm.

    After waiting till nearly 7.30 we found out she was near the lake and we had missed our only chance of seeing her. DD4 VERY disappointed!!!!!:sad1::sad1:

    If you can, ask a Handler they know much more accurate information!!

    in Epcot there is a building called CLUB COOL, it has different Coke products from around the world, Beverly is a coke product from Italy, and it taste's nasty.
    Kinda tastes like a cold carbonated espresso.

    Here is a link to a survey re: CLUB COOL

    It is a carbonated beverage sold in Italy. It has bitters in it. It does taste rather strange. Like I said before, everyone should experience it once. My favorite is the wild cherry soda from somewhere like Taiwan or Taipei. I can't remember which country it is from actually.

    No. It's a product of the Coca-Cola Company, but it is most certainly not Coke. Beverly is a clear, carbonated, bitter-sweet beverage marketed as a digestive aid and palate-cleanser (rather like a bitter version of Ginger Ale). It's an acquired taste; some quite enjoy it (I do).

    Indeed. I always explain it to my friends that it is best done as a "shot", since it's so horrid. I'm glad they offer small cups there! ;)

    You should let the people at Universal know that - they charged me 25 cents.

    I like to watch people when they try Beverly for the first time. It is so much fun to watch the expressions on their faces.
