At United Kingdom Rose & Crown Pub & Dining Room in Epcot World Showcase, a specially designed ale warmer can heat your Guinness to 55 degrees, the temperature favored by Brits.

I visited Disney for the first time in over 20 years in March 2000 with my best friend and her family (hubbie and 2 kids). While visiting Epcot, we decided to eat in Great Britain, at the pub (Rose & Crown?) on the water, hoping for a great view of the Millenium Celebration that night. Well, we were finishing up, and our server/CM (who was great) came over to us and wondered if we would like to be involved in the Celebration in a special way. She told us that Devyn (who was 8) could start off the whole show out on their decking. Of course, we agreed, and about 3 servers whisked Devyn away and explained what she would be doing. They really made a big deal over her and made her feel so special. She got to hold a lighted baton and signal the start. It was amazing - such a great moment for us!! She walked on a cloud for days. Plus -- how lucky could we be?? Talk about being in the right place at the right time. So - I highly recommend that restaurant for late supper if you have children (or not) and maybe it could happen to you too! They turned our vacation into a really exciting experience and FULL of that Disney Magic. (Plus, the fish and chips were GREAT.)
