    Wasn't it a part of his opening day speech?

    Only with sandals. Yeah... Walt Disney was "that guy".

    For a park that discouraged alcohol since it's inception there sure was a lot of boozin' going down in the attractions. Pirates, Haunted Mansion, Country Bears. Watch America Sings on YouTube... those animals liked to party.

    Nope.

    All prima facie and circumstantial evidence was roundly discounted in the thread I linked to in my first post. That sort of evidence simply wasn't strong enough: A direct quote from Walt himself was required by the non-believers; audio of said quote by Walt would have been better.

    I'll keep it short and simple: no alcohol in either Disney parks.

    At $11.50 for a Long Island and a near constant flow of willing customers, alcohol in DCA is not going anywhere for a long, long time.

    Re: Walt on alcohol at Disneyland

    Well, if nobody else does, I certainly appreciate Steve DeGaetano for providing the quote and the source to back it up (as well as the link - awesome site!). I used to read several Walt Disney biographies back in junior high (I was virtually addicted to them - read one of them three times), and can attest that, yep, that sounds like the Walt I knew from those biographies. I remember reading similar quotes along the same lines in them, so it comes as no surprise at all to me.

    I also found a blog that has full-size readable images of the Saturday Evening Post edition with the Diane Disney Miller article mentioned above, dated November 17, 1956 -

    Thanks man. It's people like you I do this for--people who appreciate the history of the theme park we all love.

    Why don't you do a little research on your own, instead of relying solely on others to supply it?
    Firstly, I am surprized this isn't litter-boxed yet.
    Secondly, I am not trying to prove that he didn't say anything. I just think if someone is going to try and end a debate that happened 8 months ago (and that thread was barely a debate), start a new thread about it, claim that they solved the question, AND makes sure that not one person questions his research in this or any thread... well that person (you) better have your facts well presented. I like the fact you tossed up the whole paragraph. I appreciate this (said for the second time).

    I have done more research than you will ever know.

    I'm with you on this one! I have no doubt that Walt said that. I mean, if he didn't want cotton candy, shelled peanuts or gum, than why would he want alcohol in the parks?

    p.s Your signature pic is amazing!

    So many off-topic posts, so many personal asides and personal attacks.

    Our rules don't permit me to verbalize my disappointment in detail, so I'll just say, "Thread Closed".
