  • [Chat] Why can't I buy a Pepsi inside Disney?

    About 50% of people prefer Pepsi to Coke - I know, as a diabetic, I can only drink diet soda, and I hate Diet Coke. To me, Diet Pepsi is a far superior beverage. Diet Coke has a dreadful after taste. When I was drinking regular soda, even then I preferred Pepsi over Coke. I know Disney used to sell both Pepsi and Coke in Disneyland. The Golden Horseshoe was originally sponsored by Pepsi, while Coke Corner has always been sponsored by Coca-Cola. One thing I hate about going to Disney (one of the only things) Is the fact I cannot buy a Diet Pepsi ANYWHERE on property.

    Your opinion is only yours. More people prefer coke over pepsi, regular and diet.


    Coke has the contract to supply soft drinks at DLR, that's why they sell coke.

      More people do NOT prefer Coke - it is about 50/50 -

        On Facebook, Coke has 54 million likes; Pepsi has 9 million.

        From Wikipedia: Pepsi was knocked to third place behind Coca-Cola and Diet Coke, Diet Coke outsold Pepsi in 2010. Coca-Cola sold 1.6 billion cases of its regular soda and 927 million cases of its diet soda, while Pepsi sold only 892 million cases.

        You may not enjoy the taste of Coke, but America does, significantly more than Pepsi.

            It'd be nice to have both in the parks. I've never showed favoritism to either really. It depends on what kind of mood I'm in. If I want Pepsi I get Pepsi. If I want Coke I get Coke. It's not a life-changing situation, lol. Let's not turn this into an argument about which brand is better haha.

              It is as simple as that Coke pays for the sponsorship deal, and Disney accepts: they are free to no longer accept or sell products in the park (see the McDonald's contract being voided and food removed).

              Coke is a brand-name with vast public knowledge in America, and cachet besides: many enthusiasts of vintage Coke products and the Santa Claus classic depiction was the work of a Coca-Cola advertising artist. In the end though, just comes down to money, and Coke pays the amount that will make Disney listen, doubtless.

                I like Coke more than Pepsi, but I like Diet Pepsi more than Diet Coke.

                Go figure.

                  I gotta agree with you this one. It especially irks me in restaurants when I order a diet Pepsi and they don't tell me they only have coke, as if I won't notice!!

                    Coke may not outsell Pepsi because people prefer it - For example - How many people bought Coke in Disneyland as opposed to how many people bought Pepsi in Disneyland last year? 100% bought Coke, and Zero% bought Pepsi - That does not reflect people's preferences. It reflects accessibility.

                      What I suggest you do is to bring your own Pepsi to the park.

                              Personally, I like the taste of Coke, really don't like the taste of Pepsi. One isn't 'better' than the other. Like so many things that are the 'same thing' (i.e. soda or beer) yet 'different' (pepsi vs coke, light vs dark beer) it all comes down to what YOU like the taste of better.

                              I couldn't care less if DL had both Coke and Pepsi. But I would assume that both Coke and Pepsi would!

These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

                                  But I doubt that even if all the other ballparks start serving Pepsi, they'll always have Coke in Atlanta. . .

                                      Howdy Pards,

                                      Well, one thing's for certain...over the years the folks at PEPSI have made possible some downright wonderful Disneyland shows and attractions. There was a time when that PEPSI logo appeared on the curtain in the good ol' Golden Horseshoe. Seems to me those Country Bears were brought to us by the good folks at PEPSI and FRITO LAY as well.

                                      Course, Coke Corner...well...

                                      Over the decades I've sipped on my share of both I reckon. Given the choice, taste wise, I'd probably pick good ol' Coca Cola...but I ain't never turned my nose up to Pepsi. When I'm thirsty...they both taste mighty fine ice cold.

                                      Contracts and business practices and such sometimes favor one over the other for the park I reckon... I understand those two companies are sorta competin' with one another...
                                      they both take in billions of dollars in a year's time...

                                      I've been kinda favorin' Green Tea lately...but I ain't never been all that picky about Colas...or any other soft drink for that matter.

                                      One thing though...taint no doubt that Disney charges too much for the stuff no matter what it is... Why? Well, I reckon Disney figures it's got a captive audience inside those gates and...well...they are makin' a ton of money off those beverages too. Taint no doubt whatsoever about that...

                                      Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.

                                        Personally, I prefer Coke to Pepsi, although now that I have diabetes, I prefer Coke Zero to Diet Coke. . . I also like the fact that Coke is more "All-American" than Pepsi. . . Usually, the only time I ever drink Pepsi is if it's the only thing available(although I have to admit that sometimes Pepsi Max does go good with KFC, but that's a different story. . . )
