The CATS have arrived in Orlando for their matchup with Penn State in the Citrus Bowl. Following close behind will be the faithful contingent of BBN. Many of whom have waited years to see history being made by the Kentucky Football team.
No trip to Orlando is complete without a day or two or perhaps three at the happiest place on the earth, Disney World.
I have been to Disney World 34 time, yes 34 times. I could write a book on things to do, places to eat and what to avoid. However, since some fans will be wanting to “adult” while at Disney, I decided to enlist the help of my daughter. She is a proven professional of “Drinking Around the World” at Epcot.
Epcot is the home to the World Showcase which consists of 11 pavilions. Each pavilion represents a country from around the world containing restaurants, shopping and attractions specific to the represented country.
Although “Drinking around the World” is not a sanctioned activity nor encouraged by Disney it is a way to pass the time while you wait for kickoff.
The object of the game is to visit each country and sample a drink and perhaps a snack. Participants can work alone or with a group. You travel the world at your own pace.

If you complete your tasting of the countries you will not receive any prizes but if you check on Etsy I am sure you can purchase a t-shirt!
Enjoy the magic of Disney World and if you get the opportunity walk down Main Street. I guarantee it will make you feel like a child again when you see the castle. Even after 34 trips to Disney it still takes me back in time.
Remember drink responsibly. Mickey frowns upon bad behavior.
