Drink Around The World at Epcot's World Showcase


This has to be the most popular game for adults at Disney World. Most people who do this go by the general rule of one drink in each country. Here we've given it a little twist and work with a more intricate point based system for those who want a little more challenge. Click on the photos below for a larger image so you can print it out and bring to the park with you.

Agree beforehand what the winner gets, or better, what the loser has to do!

Rules

1. Points are only awarded for the first drink, snack, or meal had in each country.
IE. If you have a second beer, you don't get points for it. But you can get points for both a drink and a snack in the same country.

2. Flights are instead of a drink - no points for a flight AND another drink in the same country.

3. Drinks and food must be authentic to the country - no substituting a Coke for your N/A drink. . . unless you're in the USA

Other Games

Read these next few quickly before the wife figures out I added 'em! She thinks one is mean spirited and the other is dumb. And she's, of course, correct. But, that doesn't mean they're any less fun . . .

1. This first one is for the people that enjoy a good practical joke. Next time you jump into a coaster, or anything with a lap bar, reach over and press your friend's lap bar down a few extra clicks so it's REAL good and tight - safety first (and comfort second) right?


2. Lightning Rod Game:
We all know about hidden Mickeys around Disney parks, how about a poor man's version that can be played at any theme park?  Count how many lightning rods you can see from where you're standing.  To make it a little more sporting it's fun to add a little wager.  How about a free beer for whoever counts the most or whoever counts the least buys the next round for everyone else?  OK, maybe it's not the ultimate in entertainment but it'll help pass the time while you stand in line.  The wager seems especially appropriate if you're passing time while standing in line for a beer.

----EDITED----
PartyThroughTheParks does NOT endorse making someone's ride terribly uncomfortable to the point they freak out. Do not try this if you value the relationship you have with your friend.

Also, do not play the lightning rod game in a thunderstorm unless you plan on counting yourself.
