My pre-game notes on Drinking Around the World

There are 85 days until June 1, 2013 – my next trip to Disney World.  I’m very much looking forward to my trip, for all sorts of reasons, but something I’m especially looking forward to is Drinking Around the World.  I’ve never attempted to drink around the world showcase in Epcot, but this June, I’ll try to complete the game!

The rules vary depending on what you read, but my goal is to get 1 drink at each country, excluding the African Outpost, and to do it all in one day.

Some tips I’ve read – eat a BIG hearty breakfast before going to Epcot.  And start promptly at 11am in Mexico, working your way around to Canada.

In preparation for this, I’ve been doing a lot of reading and research on what are the best drinks at each country (and also the best snacks, because I love food).
