Deciding on a spring break destination this year was tough. I was hoping was that we wouldn't end up choosing a stereotypical, wild party all day everyday location. While I definitely like to drink and party, given that I am a college student, I didn't want to be sloppily drunk off my ass and hungover the whole time, but I still wanted to do something that allowed me to get a little drunk while being more low-key. 

We're Going to Disney World!

When we finally decided to spend some time in Disney World, I felt a magical sense of excitement like a little kid. This would be such a fun way to have an entertaining break with my friends. I also had been hearing lately about how people "drink around the world," at Epcot, which I figured I would try out myself. I wouldn't be able to drink at every country because 11 drinks would maybe be a few too many, and I also just couldn't afford to spend that much money.

Out of the four of us, just my friend and I are 21. So the two of us were excited about being able to buy drinks at Disney and see what it is like to get a little drunk in a new setting. Our first day was spent in Epcot, where we tried to drink around the world.

We began our journey at Mexico at around noon. That's totally an acceptable time to begin drinking right? I had heard from a friend that I should try the avocado margarita, so I went for that. I love margaritas and it definitely intrigued me. It was pretty pricey, but it was a large size and strong enough to get me buzzed so I was happy.

It had more of a smoothie taste and consistency than a typical margarita, but it was yummy and refreshing. We were then chilling and walking around exploring for a bit and I felt the alcohol swirling in my system.

At around 2 we got our second drink. Enough time had passed that it felt like it was time for another one. I ordered a grapefruit beer at Germany and it was deliciously citrus-y and light. At 2:30 we were already rushing to have our third drink in Italy. We happened to be there during the International Flower and Garden Festival, so there were small pop-up places throughout the countries in addition to the normal places.

My friend and I went to one of the pop-ups and both ordered Prosecco and a small plate of meatballs. At this point I still had some beer leftover, so tried to quickly chug it in order to enjoy my classy Prosecco and meatballs while having a great view of the Epcot ball. Everything started to hit me a little harder, and I was enjoying it.

At 4:00 we got a beer flight from America that had 3 small samples of different beers in them, which I had two of. They didn't taste great but I drank them anyway. I was feeling energized again by pushing through the tiredness. I was awake, happy and in the sun.

At around 4:30, we went to a pop-up in Japan and my friend and I each ordered a small amount of food and matcha sake. It was a small glass and had a nice tea flavor.

Ending the Day

By 5:00 I started to sober up, and spent the rest of the day that way because we did not order any more drinks. I had a good time and I I had a solid amount of alcohol during this experience. I was able to get drunk to the point of being giddy, but I didn't get messy or sick. I do think if I try this again, however, that I could stand to order a few more drinks and be okay. Spring break in Disney may not sound like a party, but it was LIT.
