    Re: NO WINE at the BLUE BAYOU?

    I enjoy fine dining but I don't really care for wine with my meals. Never been much of a wine drinker.I don't know why some people can't seem to enjoy food without wine or alchohol being involved. The Blue Bayou has done just fine without serving wine for nearly 40 years and it can continue to do fine without it. That's just my opinion.

    Angry Re: NO WINE at the BLUE BAYOU?

    I am going to repeat something I posted here a little while ago about this and give you the best reason in the world that they don't serve alchohol in Disneyland.

    We were at the balcony area of the Gallery to watch Fantasmic, back when it was free and you had to make reservations. We got there and then about 6 people came out from Club 33 and took our seats as they were "Special". Every one of them was so drunk they could hardly stand, let alone sit without falling on their butts. It ruined the whole show as they smelled, yelled and generally acted like idiots through the entire show, all except one. He fell asleep as soon as the show started and snored through the whole show. Disgusting. That's why. People can't just drink a glass of wine anymore. They have to guzzle a half dozen bottles of beer or wine.

    That's all we need, a bunch of drunks on a hot day staggering around Disneyland. And you know it would happen. Look at the other other Parks who do serve this stuff. Drunk Louts everywhere.

    There is no alchohol allowed at Disneyland (with the exception of Club 33) and that has been in effect since day one, and I hope it stays like that. You want a drink, leave have your drink somewhere else, and if you have more than one, don't come back.

    Well, aren't you being a little selfish, saying the Blue Bayou is now "low class" just because it's not meeting your needs? Well, sorry to say it, but they weren't thinking about what you want, they were thinking about the family. Just because a place doesn't serve wine or spirits doesn't mean it's low class. I'm sorry you can't have you're precious booze, but get over it, it's really not that big of a deal.

    Hehehe, this is such a violent strong response to being told that you can't drink wine....

    It sounds like that wine is pretty important to you.

    I agree. Some people become angry drunks and this is a classic case of an angry drunk. Probably started drinking his wine when he started the thread and eventually passed out.

    Re: NO WINE at the BLUE BAYOU?

    The concern about drunks roaming around DL if they served wine at the BB will sound exaggerated to some, but I disagree. Alcohol is funny stuff. Some people are noticably drunk after just three glasses of wine or so. Myself, I can drink a raft of beer without much effect, but four glasses of wine and I'm buzzing badly. I know I'm not the only one. Just one of those things. DL's policy is sensible, I think.

    Re: NO WINE at the BLUE BAYOU?

    what are you guys talking about? Get the Mint Julep, add mystery substance, and whola!

    I personally dont mind the no drink policy. Disneyland should be a safe havan for familys. Now with that said, Alchoal in Disney's other parks (notice I didn't say Walt Disney's,) has not ruined the parks in any way. I dont see drunks walking around DCA or people getting in fights in Epcot.

    I don't think Drinks will ruin the park, even if they did add it just at the BB.

    While I grew up in a family that served wine with meals....STILL serves wine with meals and I continue to enjoy wine with meals....

    I think your above post just proved why alcohol shouldn't be served at the park. Just a little concerned that you are this upset about being denied a drink for a few hours. It's not that big of a deal. IMHO

    Actually, YOU are arguing about something as absurd as bringing wine into Disneyland. As I recall, YOU started this thread. Perhaps I can do an internet search and get you Greenpeace's number?

    Walt didn't want alcohol served in his park. That's good enough for me.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Exactly. And thank you Lost Boy.

    Everyone's body is different. Some people get tipsy after just one drink. Like I stated before, not everyone would attempt to be drunk, but it could very well still happen. There are responsible drinkers out there, but there are just as many irresponsible ones. Americans have it rough, too...our drinking laws are far more strict than in many places. In Europe, the restrictions are less tight, and as a result they really don't have much problems with drinking. It's allowed, so it's not as fun to get drunk, not really a big deal over there. Since our laws are more strict, it's far more fun and taboo to get loud and drunk...which is why we have such a problem with drinking, IMO.

    Oh, and Flash Me Mountain, you're comments towards melmel were extremely hypocritical. Maybe it's you that needs to be "more adult" in this case.

    Also, I'm fairly sure Disneyland has some sort of code that they have to follow-whatever Walt stated was to stay golden and respected? And if management wanted to deem otherwise, they'd have to get it passed by the Disney family? I'm not sure, but that's what I've heard.

    Re: NO WINE at the BLUE BAYOU?

    Walt has many quotes about his desire to control guests and drunk guests certainly would be harder to control. The current Disney though, I think, is more focused on guest satifaction. Guests simply don't need to be drunk to enjoy Disneyland.

    Now if booze is desired in Disneyland to help guests accept all the recent cartoony stuff and the "new" Tomorrowland, I don't know if BB would be the best place to introduce it. I think NOS, with the new Pirate overlay, could be serving grog from those ODV carts. Then it would be "burb! THat Pooh is the bestest ride ever!"

    Heh! Have you ever been to England? Especially at this time of year during the World Cup? Drunken louts everywhere!

    Back on topic, I enjoy fine dining and I enjoy good wines with my meals, but I accept that BB is a non-drinking establishment and I am fine with that. If I want wine with my meal I go to The Napa Rose. More of an actual fine dining experience anyway.

    That's just the way it is in Disneyland. Although, I have never seen drunken people walking around DCA and puking, so I am not sure that the arguements for not having alcohol in a family place really hold up.

    LOL well some people CAN drink a drink or two and stop, and some people are alcoholics

    For those that want to drink, you can always go to DCA/DtD and then come into Disneyland, nobody's stopping you unless you're falling over.

    We all know that many people on vacation check their brains in at the airport. They have this "woohoo! we're on vacay and we are gonna party down!" thing running through their heads. It's the same mentality when people do the strip in Vegas, or Bourbon Street in New Orleans... for some it is "about" the booze.

    Do I think it's a bit strange for a supposedly fine dining restaurant not to serve wine? Yes. But there's plenty of higher end restaurants at the resort that DO serve wine -- if that's what gives the meal an added "oomph" for you, then don't go to Blue Bayou.
