    I'm aware that the "no alcohol served to the general public in Magic Kingdoms" rule is, sadly, a thing of the past, . . .
    And I'm aware that non-Magic-Kingdom Disney parks have been serving alcohol for some time, and that DCA has been serving it since it opened, . . .

    But Zombies?!?

    I was paying for some stuff at a local Stater Bros., when the young employee bagging groceries for the next line started talking about how she'd been served a Zombie, at Ariel's Grotto (now the Lamplight Lounge?!?) in DCA. And about its effects on her.

    Even though I'm a teetotaler, I know what a Zombie is. I know it was named for its aftereffects, and was invented by Donn Beach, of Don the Beachcomber.

    Even though I knew that alcohol was served in non-Magic-Kingdom Disney Park restaurants (and now, sadly, also in a few restaurants in the various Magic Kingdoms), I never imagined Disney serving anything quite that potent.

    I have never and will never have a drink at a Disney Park. However, I always kind of assumed that their drinks would be weak. Guess not, just frightfully expensive.

    I don't drink, period. I don't like being out of control of my senses, and even if I don't find the mouth-feel of ethanol as vile as I find the mouth-feel of carbonation, I don't especially care for it, either. So I guess I won't be having a drink in a Disney Park, either. (On one or two occasions, receiving Communion, I've forgotten which denomination I was worshiping with, and jumped a bit when I realized I should have signaled for either Intinction or Pasteurized grape juice.

    I've always wanted to walk into a bar and order a "virgin martini, hold the olive, hold the ice." Just to see if I'd be handed an empty glass.

    Suddenly thinking of the barroom brawl scene in Victor/Victoria. When James Garner's character walks into a bar, and orders milk. The dialogue between that and the first punch is a hard PG-13.

    Gotta take the millenials money and they like to be drunk in daily life.
