It is quite a disturbing trend that so many of the promotions at WDW have Beer, Wine, or Bourbon in the title…. If Disney stopped pushing the Alcohol, I wonder if promotions would become geared to provide entertainment as they once did.

Before I even looked at the comments I was about to post, “cue the ‘alcohol is bad at Disney wah wah wah’ people for this post”… scroll down, and here is Randyland right on cue. Well done sir.


Any man can say he doesn’t care if alcohol is promoted in Walt Disney World theme parks, and events, if that man does not see wrong with it… Because no man can say he doesn’t care that DOES see wrong with it….because no man can logically say he doesn’t care whether wrong is voted up or voted down. Thanks
