BuzzFeed reports wine slushies sold at Walt Disney World, everyone freaks out

Yesterday, reporter Brian Galindo posted an article on BuzzFeed about wine slushies being sold at Walt Disney World. The headline, "Forget Dole Whips, Disney World's New Magical Treat Is Wine Slushies" apparently made a lot of people really angry.


Because the wine slushies are being sold at the new Amorette's Patisserie at Disney Springs, not at any of the theme parks. So, the article's main argument, that these slushies — which come in two flavors, Strawberry Shiraz and Mango Moscato, BTW — will help you deal with Disney's lines and throngs, ain't exactly right.

Also, people really like to argue about Disney-related stuff.

That three-hour line for Big Thunder Mountain will still be there, and so will you. Sans wine slushie.

About 100 people commented on the article (and that's just on the BF page), calling the writer out for not doing his research, click-baiting the headline, and doing the math to see how long it would take to get from Splash Mountain to Disney Springs to get a slushie and then bring it back on the bus (never mind that food and drinks aren't allowed on Disney transportation).

Some commenters even compiled lists of all the places at the actual parks you can get alcohol, including Be Our Guest restaurant, Cinderella's Royal Table and Tony's Town Square, besides literally all of Epcot. Because that's what you do there.
