Hmm, a combination of Space Mountain + Tower of Terror + Ice Station Cool?
Dont laugh too hard.
The rumors are saying the amount of show on this decorated roller coaster is going to depend 100% on finding a sponsor and how much they are willing to fork over.

I can just see it now - a giant Yeti holding a bottle of coca-cola teaching the world to sing!
Oh, I thought it was a high-speed adventure through the snow-capped mountain of Everest...
...presented by Cocaine.
Yeti gets replaced by cola drinking polar bear! "Duck, he's going to throw an emtpy at us!" Oooo Thrilling!
Official opening of Bashing season: April 23
Personally, my wife and I wouldn't mind if pepsi would sponsor something and get their foot in the door somewhere in WDW. We don't care much for coke and always bring pepsi with us. Yea, I know it will never happen. But this is Disney, after all, and we can dream.
Dr Pepper! My one complaint with Walt Disney World... no Dr Pepper! I always smuggle some in.
Pepsi used to have a stronghold on Frontierland. I recall them sponsoring the Mile Long Bar (maybe Pecos Bills), and the Diamond Horseshoe Saloon. Something buried back in my consciense has the Pepsi and/or Fritos name on the Country Bear Jamboree. I believe I saw that somewhere in my park map collection. Or, have I just lost my mind?
Ha! That's one of my boyfriend's main arguments against Disney World. I always argue back that our college doesn't sell Dr. Pepper anywhere on campus, and he has no problem going there!
I figure that one irrational reason deserves another.
There used to be a Frito stand in Disneyland when I was a little kid -- I remember always wanting frito chili pies from there. So maybe we're both crazy.
Yeeck, You are crazy. Here's an idea. For the Grand Opening of M:S, open up a frito chili pie stand just outside the ride que.
Pepsi was one of the long, long time Disney sponsors and used to sponsor more in the parks than Coca-Cola did.
But getting rid of Pepsi was one of the conditions that Coke set for their sponsorship of EPCOT Center. Disney management at the time figured that 'American Adventure' was more important than Casa de Fritos.
OK, so we're stuck with Coke but why are the choices so limited? Coke, Diet Coke or Sprite is usually all there is and it definitely limits the number of overpriced drinks we buy.
Less hassle for Disney. You are a captive audience when your there. Youre going to buy a drink regardless so why even worry about carrying Caffeine Free Diet Cherry Lemmon Coke. I'm sure it's more profitable that way.
I seem to recall they also had caffene free diet coke in a number of places at Disney, but now the only place I've seen it is at American adventure in world showcase. Anybody see it anyplace else?
I was once told by a CM that the reason the parks do not serve Dr. Pepper is because the entire state of Florida does not serve Dr. Pepper!! I guess it's just a regional thing and instead Florida serves alternate drinks such as Mr. Pibb. Can anyone else confirm this?
Actually we don't. I don't dislike the water like so many other people do so I drink more of it. Good for me, bad for Disney.
I would appreciate something caffeine free too but it's a minor thing.
I can confirm the Mr. Pibb deal...
I was mixing up a "suicide" at a soda fountain in Orlando International, and I couldn't find ANY Dr. Pepper. They did have plenty of Mr. Pibb...
Mr. Pibb reminds me of that one "Simpsons" episode where Bart and Lisa are taken care of by Patty and Selma. One of them mentions Mr. Pibb as one of 2 drink options...since that's all they have.
O/T, but still...

What? That's ridiculous -- I've had DP plenty of times in Florida. I wouldn't have been able to get through my college program without it!
Dr Pepper is most positively available here in Florida. It can be had at Pizza hut, Taco Bell, and a lot of convenience stores. It depends on where you are.
