It's not THAT bad.
Till a drunk guest stumbles out.......
yay i like this news lol, imagine alcoholic dole whips :o
They failed to mention that it will only be available during dinner and guests will not be able to leave the restaurant with it.
Disneyland Paris serves some alcoholic beverages and I never saw a problem when I was there. In fact I've never seen an issue with drunk guests at any Disney park that serves liquor. IMO if people want to get drunk they will somewhere else and come to MK.
As someone who enjoys a good beer, and enjoys attending F&W at Epcot for that very reason, I think this is horrible. I'm aware of the restrictions on its sale/consumption, but why have it at all in the first place?? It's completely unnecessary and goes against Walt's express wishes. Alcohol should not be served in the MK or MK style parks with the exception of Club 33. Outside of DLP, that's how it's always been and always should be, and the only reason WDW is changing it now is for the bottom line. They certainly won't be getting any more $$ from me out of this. Not at MK.
Choose which way you want it, Disney. Do you care about Walt's legacy or not? Because this bullcrap of trying to tie Walt to everything from DHS to DAK to the Cruise Line and a million other things he has absolutely nothing to do with in order to give them more legitimacy, while simultaneously flying in the face of his specific, unambiguous, recorded wishes doesn't fly. Either live up to Walt or stop putting on this farcical show of pretending you care about him at all. You can't have it both ways.
It's not like a bar, it's for casual dinner drinking. The likelihood that we'll see problems with drunk people are very slim.
Why is it okay for DLP to have it, but the ones in the states are forbidden? They fulfilled his legacy by allowing it in parks outside the country? Doesn't that contradict the point?
Atleast people donīt smoke all over the place like in Disneyland Paris or pee all over the park like in Hong Kong Disneyland.
Walt didn't want alcohol in the parks because the thought it would bring rowdiness. The price of the beer prohibits the rowdiness lol
My attitude towards "It a money move" doesn't concern me. A company is supposed to find ways to increase profits, not sit there and look pretty.
Obviously, people can agree or disagree with Walt's reasoning, but that's irrelevant. The question isn't, "Is alcohol good or bad?" The question is, "Should TWDC respect Walt's wishes?" TWDC voluntary choose not to sell alcohol at MK-style parks as a symbolic measure of respect for Walt. They're now choosing to forego that restriction. It's hard to see that as anything other than, "We don't care about respecting Walt's wishes anymore because we can make more money this way."Quote:

It's not a disregard towards walt Walt, they're doing what Walt did frequently - adjust and change things according to what the public was looking for.
because they didn't want Miramax's harder-edged films associated with TWDC anymore. Those were both instances of choosing values over profits. The fact that they're doing the opposite when it comes to honoring Walt's wishes says a lot about where Disney is as a company. Nothing new, sadly, but it's one more way that Disney is distancing itself from its founder.
Don't like it at all. And based on a lot of choices Disney has been making, I have little faith....or pixie dust.
