This sounds like a blast!!!
If you're going during F&W, I wouldn't attempt to get a drink at every kiosk, as there are a ton of them ... but you can basically start at one end of the World Showcase and over the course of the day, stop off at any kiosks when you need another drink. For the F&W fest, you can get a free passport book that they will stamp at each kiosk. I usually try to get the book filled by the end of my vacation.

During F&W, you'll probably see groups with custom made 'Around the World' checklist shirts that they check off the different countries with a sharpie marker as they drink around the WS. It's a pretty fun atmosphere, but can get crazy crowded Friday nights, Saturday, and Sunday afternoon.

During F&W there are passports available that list every country/booth and what food and drink options are available. They will stamp them for you at all the booths.

As far as a traditional non-F&W Drinking around the world, Basically it's just a matter of grabbing something to drink at each country. Since people's tastes differ, there isn't a "You gotta get this at this country" requirement, but there are certain beverages that there is a strong opinion that 'you gotta try'.... such as the Grand Marnier or Grey Goose Slush's in France.

Disney doesn't have a passport for non F&W drinking around the world, but there are a TON of things you can find online. some people have also mentioned using the kid-cot things as your DatW souvenirs. There are several threads on the DIS about the subject, so feel free to just do a search for drinking around the world.

With regards to drinking around the world, there's also the 20$ wine cards you can buy. They're good for two wine samples in each France, Germany, and Italy. That was a neat way to try some new wines I thought, and my friend and I enjoyed doing it.

That is why I posted a poll. I don't want to decide. I thought one date would outshine all others. . .but no. . .its too close.

I live an hour and a half away, I only need to give work 2 weeks notice to get the weekend plus a day or two here and there off and I am biased. I love love love the last couple weekends in October and the first weekend in November. . .my fave times of year. Just sayin.

What is amazing to me though is that I haven't updated my signature since 7/2010. . .lol. That's funny to me.

So, Walking Dead season finale sucked IMO. Game of Thrones was great. I'm still upset I can't watch Game of Thrones though, had to cut back and HBO was of the things to go. I need to use somebody's HBO Go, or find an alternative way to watch it. Any ideas? Suggestions?

I recorded the Walking Dead finale to watch after work today. Being a huge fan of the book, I'm still wondering how they are going to wrap the season up within one episode, but I guess I'll find out later. For Game of Thrones ... I don't have HBO, So I'll either catch them at a friend's house On Demand, but most likely just have a long wait until I can watch on DVD

The poll is at least helping to see a pattern as to when there may be some other DISers down that way. I saw my parents over Easter, and they mentioned they were planning on heading down to Florida for a few weeks again in October. Pretty sure I'm going to book 10/23 - 10/31 as that will give me some time during the last 2 weeks of Oct, as well as a weekend of F&W events. May miss the solo meet, but it also seems like there will be some DISers around during those weeks.

I see you've discovered the most frustrating part of planning a meet. As Tara can probably attest, there comes a point were you just need to make the executive decision and say "This is when it's happening", and then go from there.




Also... Where's blue been? Saw the ad for Gmail Blue today and thought of him.

What ride isn't better with a slight buzz ? LoL


I have been watching Vikings and really like the show too - actually pretty interesting!

Ragnar is cool - but I call dibs on Rollo - lol!!

No suggestions - but I'm kinda in the same boat! I don't have HBO - but had a free preview from March 29th through tonight and I started watching Game of Thrones and really liked it - which sucks since I have no way to continue watching it - lol

*snores* Huh? What? Who said my name? Oh it's just DC.

That commercial was awesome yeah? I've been lurking but haven't been on too much between work and nursing a bum knee again. Hope everyone is doing well! Working on planning a DL trip in the next couple weeks before our AP's run out. I refuse to renew them since they DRASTICALLY increased the pricing as well as cut the benefits/perks to having one yet again this year!

Darcy- I've run into the date issue before with planning meets with my other fandom. I usually just take the date that has the most votes, even if it's only by 1 or 2.
