Fresca sold on property?

Is Fresca available at any of the parks or resorts? Hess stations? Could use another diet option other than diet coke, and not a fan of diet sprite.........good mix for vodka as well. Thanks.

To be honest I did not realize that Fresca was still being made. I have not seen it anywhere in years.

I'd rather have "Squirt", but we can't get that up here in Ontario. I get so excited when I find it when we're travelling in the States.

That is another brand that I have not heard mentioned in years.

Is Fresca a Coke product?

I doubt it's in the park, but you could try to buy it at a shop at DTD or somewhere in Orlando and then bring it with you into the park. That'll save you money too. I googled drinks at DW and I couldn't find it at the park.

I found this here: http://allears.net/ae/issue595.htm

Quote:
Coca-Cola will have two locations within the Theme Park-Main Street Refreshment Corner, and the Tomorrowland Terrace. Their products include Coca-Cola, TAB, Fresca, and Fanta Flavor, and will be served at both locations.

Just ctrl+f to search the webpage if you want to find more. It's a plus that it's made by Coke since they are a sponsor in all of the parks I believe.

Since we usually park at Boardwalk, we always stop at the Hess on the corner and get big fountain drinks to take into the park. They recently changed their fountain from the regular machine to the cool retro one where you can pick the drink, then pick the flavor. Mike gets sprite one with cherry, and I get diet coke with lime. There are lots of choices of both soda and flavorings, and I'm pretty sure Fresca is a choice of soda, then you can add a flavor if you want. It sure does save $ to take your own drinks.

We always stay at the Boardwalk, and the first morning we walk over to the Hess to buy diet coke for the room. Much cheaper than buying at the Screen door. Did not see fresca there last Oct, but will check again when we are there early Nov.

We usually drink diet squirt and vodka, but obviously can't get that on property. Fresca would be a nice alternative.

Yes........back in the sixties, Fresca, Tab, and diet rite were probably only diet sodas available. I would think that WDW would be perfect venue for Coke to promote Fresca again.

The food court at POR has pretty big variety of sodas, I remember I saw vanilla coke, and some other not so main stream ones. Not sure about fresca though

The diet coke with orange tastes like Mezzo Mix. I love Mezzo Mix, I am always tempted to fill a whole souvenir cup in epcot with that stuff.

I love Fresca! Have you tried any of the new flavored ones? They are all excellent. I might need to take a trip to Target today!

If all else fails, you can actually buy Fresca on Amazon and have it shipped to your hotel.

I have a former sister-in-law that loves Tab. She will go to the ends of the earth to find it.

No one loves Beverly that much.

I actually really love Beverly. I dont think its something I'd drink 2 of a day but I could certainly drink 1-2 a week if it wasnt calorie laden.

I also really like Beverly it's almost as good as my beloved Moxie which is an acquired taste,that not too many people like.

I don't mind Beverly either. It is definitely an acquired taste.

OK, OK, OK, what I should have said was, "Forget Fresca + a shot of Vodka, switch to equal parts of Beverly + Vodka + Rum + Whiskey."

Hey, Vettelover, do you remember the big Moxie bottle at Pine Island Park?

I definitely remember Pine Island Park and their "penny arcade" and my parents took me there a few times but I do not remember the Moxie bottle. It did look interesting though.
