    And people who whinge all the time? :laugh:

    Our one bug bear is the people on scooters who obviously don't need to be on them (or are frankly too lazy). And then just use them to either ram people or get on the busses before everyone else.

    Get up, walk and join the queue like everyone else.

    (insert rude swear words where appropriate).

    You may have one, that's ONE, GLASS of wine, not bottle, with your meal dearie. :yes:

    Keith, I totally agree. If people get unruly then Disney should escort them out of the park.

    :yes: I'm glad that others noticed the bad behavior as well. It is a shame. I've had several people with families tell me that they don't want to go to the F&WF (in particular) because of all the drunk people. Goodness knows, I do my fair share of drinking but the groups can be very unDisneylike. Esp when they are drunk with their strollers! :tongue:

    I've also seen the other end where people complain about no alcohol in MK. Seems sad to me that one can't go all day without alcohol. But, I think that may well be the substance abuse counselor in me coming out.

    See I was waiting for this one :nono: It's not a matter of being unable to go all day without it and I doubt that was ever the complaint made :). Some people simply desire it and there's no earthly reason, other than an arbitrary decision made decades ago, why they should be denied that little pleasure whilst having a meal on holiday. It's really not a substance abuse/dependance issue.

    Looking at it another way. Making it available makes some people happy and the others who don't want it, have lost nothing and can simply not take advantage of the offer. I guess it would annoy the uber control freaks who want to inflict their belief systems on everyone else but surely that again is a minority :unsure: or I'd hope so anyway.

    Yep, agree with you one hundred percent, Keith. Wishing to have a glass of wine with dinner, is not a substance abuse issue, any more than eating dinner is an eating disorder issue. :rolleyes:

    Clark, agreed! I've been run into by scooters as much as strollers!!! Whiners at WDW should go back to the hotel, eh? :lol:

    There are plenty of people who have complained heartily about not being able to drink in MK. So much so that they don't even want to go there because it is dry. I don't care if people drink. I drink!! Though not nearly as much as I talk about drinking. I do think it is sad that some people cannot enjoy life without a lot of alcohol. I'll gladly share all of my concert stories about sloppily drunk people from this summer if you'd like. I NEVER said wanting a drink makes it a substance abuse problem and I don't particularly care for the eye roll smilie. I said it made me sad that some cannot enjoy themselves without alcohol but that is the substance abuse counselor part of me coming out. No where did I state that it made anyone an alcoholic.

    Who said you did? :unsure: You did however imply that wanting a glass of wine with dinner was an inability to go all day without alcohol, and then alluded to substance abuse via counseling training. Just because a person would like a glass of wine with dinner does not mean they "cannot go all day" without alcohol.

    And I find this little guy :rolleyes: quite cute!

    Now, can we move on please? It's been done to death, this "alcohol in MK" thing. Thanks!

    :lol: That reminds me of the wine glasses Herself and I bought on one of our cruises. They are large enough to hold a bottle of wine between the two of them. :D

    For the last four Christmases, someone has bought me one of those glasses :lol: either they're all getting together and agreeing it as some kind of elaborate stunt, or people just know me WAY too well ;-)

    Just to throw my two cents into the topic, when I am NOT on vacation I may go out and have a couple of drinks 2-3 times a month but when I am on vacation I love to have a FEW drinks and maybe a couple more. I like the fact that there isn't alcohol served in MK... Not sure why but I like it.. I have left the MK and taken the monorail to the Poly or contemporary and have a had a drink or two before heading back to MK for EMH.

    I've had, by far, more issues with people being rude and obnoxious regarding smoking than I've had with people drinking. :nono:

    This whole thread should just prove to Disney that it should bring back Pleasure Island!! :yes:

    Well there's a thought, DisneyFreak. Killing PI was a very odd move on Disney's part. I've "heard" all the party line, but don't really buy much of it. DTD's PI is nothing more than an extension of the shopping mall that has become the norm for DTD. :shrug:

    There were truly unique and wonderful experiences at PI. Adventurer's Club for one, eh? :sigh:

    Butterhead, we too have left the MK and taken a break at the area resorts under the guise of having a drink. :D I say guise because for us it's more to get away from the commando strollers than anything. Whew!
