Often those groups of marauding, childless millennials are actually off-duty Disney CMs in the College or International programs.
They get paid peanuts so the only fun they can afford is their free admittance to a WDW park.
My son completed one year in the IP (server at Le Cellier) and is about to embark on his second program in September so I have some understanding of this.

This is us 2 as well. Two stubborn mules. If I say no to something it makes DH want that more. I guess I am the same way ...DH would probably say so.

This thread is a good one.

Those slushies...never thought to try and mix them. I will get one of each next time and mix myself. I bet that's good. One time, during F&W I think, we walked by that stand and there was a group sitting at a table there who had made a gigantic pyramid out of empty slushie cups. Was quite impressive. I tried doing a quick math to figure their tab out...it was a lot (like 30 cups)

Yeah, it's usually a reasonably large quantity of alcohol that leads people to try such activities. Once upon a time I used to resort to such things as well. But that was some tome back.

Cheers.

Took me a moderate quantity of alcohol to try and do the math too...lol. Even easy math when the drinks are about $10

And, of course, the problem is that, after some amount of alcohol one may see more of the cups than are actually there...approaching double. Then the maths get all wonky.

Cheers.

The way round that is just to get one of each! Drink from each glass until there’s enough room to pour them together. Plus it saves getting back in line for a second one.

Yep...I came up with $654 and that can't be right.

Apparently being paid peanuts works for him.

I so wish I understood the existence of the CP when I was on college (or that it existed, I was Class of '87 after all!)

It was probably a group of off-duty CMs making the slushy pyramid because they just came off shift where they had to deal with the lady in the OPs link...

Ding ding ding! We have a winner!

The slushies are 10.75 each, plus tax so 30 slushies would be $343.50. Do CM's get discounts on alcohol?
