I really think Arthur nailed it. You just might see more and more parks try this, but it won't be the biggies. It'll be the smaller parks that need a way to lure some of those guests from the nearby biggies.
And drinks weren't free the day we visited Stricker's. But we weren't there long enough to get one anyway. ;)

Seriously, could NOT agree more with your "niche" concept. It is *exactly* what those smaller parks need to compete. Quassy, you might be next...so sign up with a beverage distributor NOW! :)
This is a good deal especially since Disney only charges $2.19 or $2.29 for the 21 oz soda and $2.49 for a 32 oz soda. I usually got the 32 oz for the extra amount of money but with free refills at this restaurant, there is no point.

What some of these parks need is more competition. This is especially true for parks like SFOT, SFGAm, SFOG, (P)Car, etc. It is going to be interesting to see the future effect of competition on KI (from HW) or SFNE (from LC) as the "value oriented" parks grow. Alabama Adventure is another of these smaller parks that needs to get more attention. It is in the shadow of SFOG and maybe this would be another candidate for a HW/LC/MS drink policy. As for GL, I keep saying, make it another LC. This park was never successful as CP Lite.
