    Why can't I buy a Pepsi inside Disney?

    About 50% of people prefer Pepsi to Coke - I know, as a diabetic, I can only drink diet soda, and I hate Diet Coke. To me, Diet Pepsi is a far superior beverage. Diet Coke has a dreadful after taste. When I was drinking regular soda, even then I preferred Pepsi over Coke. I know Disney used to sell both Pepsi and Coke in Disneyland. The Golden Horseshoe was originally sponsored by Pepsi, while Coke Corner has always been sponsored by Coca-Cola. One thing I hate about going to Disney (one of the only things) Is the fact I cannot buy a Diet Pepsi ANYWHERE on property.

    Your opinion is only yours. More people prefer coke over pepsi, regular and diet.


    Coke has the contract to supply soft drinks at DLR, that's why they sell coke.

    Re: Why can't I buy a Pepsi inside Disney?

    On Facebook, Coke has 54 million likes; Pepsi has 9 million.

    From Wikipedia: Pepsi was knocked to third place behind Coca-Cola and Diet Coke, Diet Coke outsold Pepsi in 2010. Coca-Cola sold 1.6 billion cases of its regular soda and 927 million cases of its diet soda, while Pepsi sold only 892 million cases.

    You may not enjoy the taste of Coke, but America does, significantly more than Pepsi.
    Fear of the unknown.

    They are afraid of new ideas.

    They are loaded with prejudices, not based upon any reality, but based onÖ if something is new, I reject it immediately because itís frightening to me. What they do instead is just stay with the familiar.
    You know, to me, the most beautiful things in all the universe, are the most mysterious.

    Re: Why can't I buy a Pepsi inside Disney?

    It'd be nice to have both in the parks. I've never showed favoritism to either really. It depends on what kind of mood I'm in. If I want Pepsi I get Pepsi. If I want Coke I get Coke. It's not a life-changing situation, lol. Let's not turn this into an argument about which brand is better haha.

    Re: Why can't I buy a Pepsi inside Disney?

    It is as simple as that Coke pays for the sponsorship deal, and Disney accepts: they are free to no longer accept or sell products in the park (see the McDonald's contract being voided and food removed).

    Coke is a brand-name with vast public knowledge in America, and cachet besides: many enthusiasts of vintage Coke products and the Santa Claus classic depiction was the work of a Coca-Cola advertising artist. In the end though, just comes down to money, and Coke pays the amount that will make Disney listen, doubtless.

    I like Coke more than Pepsi, but I like Diet Pepsi more than Diet Coke.

    Go figure.

    I gotta agree with you this one. It especially irks me in restaurants when I order a diet Pepsi and they don't tell me they only have coke, as if I won't notice!!

    Re: Why can't I buy a Pepsi inside Disney?

    Coke may not outsell Pepsi because people prefer it - For example - How many people bought Coke in Disneyland as opposed to how many people bought Pepsi in Disneyland last year? 100% bought Coke, and Zero% bought Pepsi - That does not reflect people's preferences. It reflects accessibility.

    What I suggest you do is to bring your own Pepsi to the park.

    Re: Why can't I buy a Pepsi inside Disney?

    Personally, I like the taste of Coke, really don't like the taste of Pepsi. One isn't 'better' than the other. Like so many things that are the 'same thing' (i.e. soda or beer) yet 'different' (pepsi vs coke, light vs dark beer) it all comes down to what YOU like the taste of better.

    I couldn't care less if DL had both Coke and Pepsi. But I would assume that both Coke and Pepsi would!
