Epcot Center, Orlando, Florida
What's on tap: An around-the-world bar crawl, squeezed into a single afternoon
Why it's worth a shot: Epcot's World Showcase is one of the few places in the Disney Empire that serves booze. And the accompanying gift shops provide silly hats and overpriced costumes perfect for cultural cliché photo ops.
Booze route: You should be able to hit all seven countries in just a few hoursit's a small world, after all. Ask for a plastic cup at each one to keep things moving. Make your way clockwise around the lagoon, starting with a margarita at the Mexico pavilion. Drop in for a beer outside the Germany pavilion, then decide whether you're up for one of Disney's wildest rides, the Italy kiosk's answer to a margarita: Limoncello, grappa, and margarita mix. (Something tells us the prosecco sells much better.) The Sam Adams draft you can grab at the American Adventure pavilion's Fife & Drum Tavern should last you until Japan, where there's a sake-tasting station hidden inside the Mitsukoshi department store. Gulp, nod approvingly, and down a coup de Champagne in France before the grand finale: the United Kingdom's Rose & Crown Pub, the circuit's only real concession to serious drinkers. (Speaking of, where's Russia?) No Mickey-Mousing here: Do the $10 "Imperial Sampler" of beer, followed by a single malt flight. Stick around; this is the best spot on the lagoon for watching the nightly fireworks showjust don't go peeling your clothes off and jumping in afterward.
Hangover cure: The Happiest Place on Earth can be the most miserable one when you're fighting a hangover. Room service was invented for situations like this.
