The alcohol is already flowing everywhere else at the resort, the one place it did not exist was MK. Is it really too much to ask to keep MK special in that regard? For just one place in the entire resort not to have alcohol? Do you really need a drink at every park?
(Full disclosure: I do like a nice Bailey's Irish Cream at the end of the day, so I'm no teetotaler; there's a time and a place for a drink and it's not MK; if you need to drink alcohol in MK to feel the magic then you're not doing the park right).
I've been to fine French dining restaurants in the Arabian Gulf, where of course they don't serve alcohol, and you know the food still tasted delicious. You don't need alcohol to enjoy a good meal, and Walt's point of not having alcohol around all the kids and young families was, and still is, a good policy. If anything, Disney should expand the no-alcohol policy to AK. Who needs a drink at an animal park? But it would be nice to keep MK special as the one and only place without alcohol in the huge, entire resort.
