No more cans of drink at GF Sequoia Lodge

Hi all,

Arrived today and went to the lounge to get some drinks to take back to the room and they dont have cans you can help yourself to anymore! Now theres a bar and a server who will pour you a glass of coke/sprite etc.

It might but be a big deal to some but its annoying! A small bottle of coke is 3.69 from their shop, which is probably why they dont have a help yourself selection anymore!

FYI - we went to the mini shop at MLV Station and got 1.25l coke for 2.20 each. Also got wine but forgot you have to take it back to hotel by bus as cant it through downtown Disney (or whatever its called)

Oh no. Thats a real pain. One reason I was looking forward to GF is the ability to take drinks into the park and not have to pay their ridiculous prices. Its not as if GF is exactly cheap! I expect some previous guests have completely taken advantage and helped themselves to far more than was necessary. We have never stayed at SL before so have no point of reference, but it is a shame.
Thanks for the update.

Yep, we are/were the same. Im really disappointed in this, I feel that they should have updated guests to the changes.

Not done GF yet (some day Abu...) but on our last trip, at least three British families boasted to us about how much food they had taken from the buffet breakfast to have later.

Not really surprised GF are stopping this - some guests were probably taking enough to start their own bar...!

Its a shame for the majority who play by the rules though.

Its a tricky one because on one hand youve paid for it so should be able to have whatever you like. But I suspect the drinks have made them realise theres money to be made so theyve cut right back.

Really unhappy with this. We would usually collect 2 cans a day each for the parks so we don't have to buy drinks. Is bottled water/juice still available to take out?

They had a server there monitoring the fridge the last time we went, if you said to take away for later do you think you could still get this? Will certainly be trying in August!

Have you though? I dont know what the conditions are of this sort of thing generally (not just in Disney). I would expect it to cover food and drink you choose to have while actually in the room. If you can take stuff away for later, to me that is a nice bonus but I wouldnt expect it.

In the same way as if you go to an unlimited pizza buffet like Pizza Hut do, I would not expect to be able to take a pizza home for later.

I know that in Salon Mickey at DLP you can have free hot and cold drinks but you cant take them away for later.
