    At least over at Club Cool they are offering Beverly, which is perhaps the worst soda of all time.

    I’ve seen beer prices like that before. So where are the pole dancers that go with such beer prices? And where is the ATM that disperses dollar bills?

    • Amy VandenBoogert

      Yeah those beer prices are nuts. But it’s nice to have some better options for those who don’t like domestic beer (like me).

    Thanks for the update! Glad to see that the mine train actually looks like it might one day be done. And that was a great photo of Spaceship Earth with the blue sky and large clouds in the background!!!

    That show at the Diamond Horseshoe looks awesome – I hope you’re right and they keep doing stuff like that in the future! Pineapple Fanta sounds pretty good, too – I don’t shop at Walmart, so hopefully it will turn up at Kroger or CVS or something!

    Cory – do you know if they still have lit tiki torches in Adventureland at night? When we were there in September they didn’t. Not sure if it’s something that has gone away. Disneyland still lights theirs.

    Thanks for the great update. About the Glow with the Show ears – I think the same thing every time I see them being sold. It wouldn’t make Disney as much money, but it would be great to have a phone app that did the colors and more – people could hold them up or look at them. That I might pay a few dollars for.

    Im disappointed that its a dvc stand too but im very glad to see the 20,000 leagues under the sea tribute( the giant squid on top) for the attraction that used to occupy that spot. Mine train looks awesome. Great update!

    I visited Club Cool last month and a lot of the flavours had run out. This now makes sense and I look forward to returning and sampling the new flavours like Pineapple Fanta.

    Kind of a bit upset to see one of Disney’s most unique Shopping experiences being down scaled to make way for another Meet & Greet. I actually picked up some books on Norwegian Folk Lore and Ghost Stories during my last trip here. A lot of the merchandise locations at Disney sell the same generic merchandise. So sad to see Disney taking away space for one of the more unique locations.

    Welcome back, thanks for the great update.

    Seeing that DVC stand in Fantasyland is a bit of a disapointment.

  • BradyNBradleysMom

    I live in Illinois. They sell Pineapple Fanta at CVS and Walgreens (those are drug stores here). I have also seen it in Jewel (our grocery store chain).

    It’s bizarre to see Pineapple Fanta put up there like it is a very special thing. It’s like if they had a “Try cherry Coke!” thing in Epcot. You can buy that at any store around here.

      Not all Guests that visit Epcot are American. The Pineapple Fanta is a completely new concept for this Brit.

    If the Mine train was a time share it would be built and open already. The Grand Floridian DVC started construction after the Mine train and still finished before it.

  • SpectroMan

    There’s a lot of things that are supposed to seem “special” in Epcot that one can get anywhere. Twinings tea? Really? Werther’s caramel candies? Tostitos chips? Lindt chocolate? Pocky candy sticks? All available in anytown, USA.

    “On the Monorail, carpet is just peeling off. No big deal.”

    10 bucks says someone at corporate pulls up this up and says “see, I told you they wouldn’t mind that carpet…”
