    Maybe some wine & beer pairings with those cigs? And don't forget thr kiddos - free candy cigarettes so they can participate as well! Might even have roaming interactive ash trays too. Remember PUSH?

    LOVE the ban on smoking in the parks! This is long overdue. Even with the designated areas, if the wind was blowing the right way, I have walked by them and ended up with a face full of smoke. I doubt they'll ban smoking at the resorts, but I would be very appreciative if they would move the smoking areas away from the entrances. Why on earth have a designated smoking area that so many people have to walk by?

    Also loving that they've limited the size on strollers. We used to do the umbrella stroller thing too. It would fold up so small that we could keep it completely out of everyone's way. Some of the strollers I've seen people muscle on to the buses are ridiculous. More than once we've helped those parents hold those strollers so they don't go flying into someone's legs.

    The ice I'm totally neutral on. It never occurred to me that people would hide things in it - but I shouldn't be surprised. In which case, I guess I'm not neutral, I consider that a good policy change too.

    I was talking to someone at church today that works security. As far as the ice, it's so they don't have to stick their hands into the ice to check the cooler out. Ice in baggies is fine since they can move it easily.

    Yes, I remember PUSH... The roaming ashtrays will be called ASH, PUSH's long lost sister...

    When I was a kid, we always had candy cigarettes... No one ever cared, no one ever thought twice... Our parents never thought us pretending we were smoking would actually lead us to smoking... We were kids having fun... Today's parents and society rip fun from the kids, and we wonder why all the children have their heads buried in tablets and phones today....

    And of course there will be wine and beer pairings... gotta make more money for the going broke Disney company!!!

    Wait til weed is legalized... Then Disney's International Festival of Cannabis will be a huge draw... And imagine the money they make on those who are smoking up and feeling like they have the munchies... MO' MONEY, MO' MONEY, MO' MONEY!!!!

    Well, then you'll find me at the Scotland booth. Scotch and cigars, natural bedfellows.

    I wonder how security knew to dig through the ice and find the beer.
    Alcohol is the second main thing they are searching for after weapons, which is first of course. People try to come in with bottles of liquor hidden in backpacks and beer buried under ice all the time. A security guard commented to me one time he needed to get all the way to the bottom of our backpack to make sure we didn't have a pint of vodka in there. lol He said when they first started searching bags at the entrances, they were pulling alcohol out constantly. Once people learned they are searching for it, they started putting effort into hiding it so they have to dig to the bottom of ice filled coolers and all of that. I don't know what difference it makes other than they don't want people bringing it in so they will instead have to buy the high priced markups at their stands. I'm not that dedicated to save a few bucks while I am on vacation but if I wanted to bring alcohol in, I would and they would never know. You know, it is sort of like the college sporting events where they don't allow alcohol but 90% of the people in the stands have a buzz. lol

    LOL...

    Maybe not... weed smokers are too mellow and may not have the desire to traverse to a theme park... OR.... they get distracted by a White Castle...

    Well, if you can't be buzzed at a college football game, you aren't doing it right. Liquor in the bottom half of a pringles can, freezing little bottles in a chunk of ice, swapping out cough medicine bottle w/ better medicine. If you had a stroller in college, thats for the keg dressed up as a child. Though I bet we could have engineered some cool ways to fit small or custom bottles in a stroller. Taking gelpacks apart, making them into flasks.

    I am glad they did not ban my charcoal grill and rib eye steaks that I bring in on a regular basis!
