All right all you soda pop lovers (like moi!) — the Coke Freestyle machine we reported on as being awesome at the California Food and Wine Festival (I even got interviewed about it here!) might be popping up at the AMC theaters in Disney World’s Pleasure Island!! Woo!!
You’ll recall from our last post that these machines offer 106 flavors of coca-cola products, meaning you can mix and match flavors to your heart’s content. This is perfect for soda mixers like me, who take the “suicide” route and mix everything that comes out of the machine (however, this is not so perfect for those in line behind us…).
Also added to the new concession stand: gourmet popcorn, self-serve ice cream, and specialty coffees, according to the Orlando Sentinel!
As far as I’ve heard, those are indeed the machines that are going in at the AMC. They’re totally remodeling the concession area closes to Bongo’s and Puck’s to install all of this stuff.
I’m excited to see it, but I’m not so sure my wallet will be. LOL
Thanks, Michelle! Hey — I think I used one of your flickr pics in my last newsletter!! Cool!
Actually, they are there now. I used one yesterday when we saw Tangled. They are pretty cool if not a little confusing the first time you encounter one. The whole concession area has been remodeled already. They have popcorn (with mix ins: caramel, cheddar and something else), ice cream, candy, pizza and other stuff.
Jill — Thanks for the update! Sounds like you wouldn’t need to eat for a week after going to the movies! 🙂
I might actually go see a movie next visit just to try out this machine 😛 Looks like fun, what can I say, lol

Cherry Coke available all the time in one place?!?!?! My wish is finally answered!!
BTW, Cherry Coke was still available in the fountain dispenser at POR in October….
If it’s going in at a movie theater my guess is that they are going to limit the use by customers by charging them more or making them pay more money for either the cup or each trip.
I don’t drink liquids while watching movies though, because each time we get a drink it’s always the bucket size and I have to end up getting up in the middle of the movie to go to the restrooms.

You can now have a fast food type dinner at AMC in DTD – and let’s not forget the full service bar – it’s pretty different than anything I have seen.
