Looks like the parks blog article is up again...anyone know for sure if the Bourbon Trail has been cancelled?

I didnt understand the whole Map/Trail thing. Those who want to drink know where to find the better adult beverages and specials. I thought the menus listed were pretty nice and it would be fun to do, but, I dont know if WDW wants to promote that they are actually just as much for adults as they are for kids when it comes to this stuff.

i see the disney parks blog article is down (not sure if that's the website you're referring to above) if so, i'm a bit puzzled. i would've enjoyed going through the "trail" and trying different things (over several visits and responsibly obviously). if somebody didn't like it obviously they can just pass on it.

If true, that seriously IS a disgrace!!!

CenterStageMay 03, 2018

Alas! Bourbon trail has been cancelled and the website has been taken down.

RandylandMay 02, 2018

What a disgrace.

Hoping to check this out in a few weeks!

Anyone try the Bourbon Trail yet? Are there kiosks or do you have to go inside each restaurant and wait for a table?

DavidS1234May 02, 2018

it's "ok". nothing to write home about.

Well it’s not inherently a dirty word...but like all words: millennials on the computer can make it one 😜

OneofThreeApr 30, 2018

I see. Never have known the word to be used in that sense. Strange that an MNC, Jim Beam (now Beam Suntory) would use the name for one of their highly distributed core brands if it is indeed so offensive. Interestingly, Disney Select bourbon is sourced from KC Single Barrel stock.

Do you mean “shine and squirt 2018”?

SirwalterraleighApr 30, 2018

Are you serious? You don’t get why it flagged? You need to do some research in urban dictionary

SirwalterraleighApr 30, 2018

They’ll keep doing it and avoid spending on rides until a couple of people say “no”...at least a dozen...and right now it’s me and one other guy
