one person one drink would punish people doing what I did, which was get one drink for me and one for my husband so one of us was with the children (who we never took into a bar etc), but we could have one drink each, at the same time (it was the only one we had that day)Every guest inside a park has either a Magic Band or a physical ticket (or both) which both access the same systems. Stop letting one person go up to the counter and buy more than one drink. You want a drink? You need to go up and get it yourself. Limit one at a time.
The next step is to put a time limit on ordering. Just as there is a time limit on refilling your soda mug, there should be a time limit on buying alcoholic drinks. An average adult can metabolize an average drink in one hour. I don't have any particular objection to people having a good time and being a little buzzed if that's what they want to do, so maybe the limit could be one drink every 40 minutes with some maximum number as well. Yes, that will kill 'Drinking Around the World' but it will also eliminate people stumbling around wasted, vomiting in flower beds, and acting like a bunch of frat boys in the middle of a family-oriented theme park.
Just because a lot of guests are using Disney transportation, there is also a parking lot filled with thousands of cars so a great many people are getting behind the wheel at some point. Maybe they should also do what sporting events and concerts do and stop serving 60 minutes before park closing time.
We love WDW. We love Epcot, especially at night, but we will absolutely not visit World Showcase on a weekend evening during Food and Wine and that's a shame, and I know we are far from the only ones who feel that way. Disney needs to decide what they want that park to be.
