    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)

    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:
