Sticky Fingers in Fantasyland

One of the most popular drink stands in the Magic Kingdom was Welch's Juice Bar. Few pictures of it exist because who would take pictures of a juice bar when there are so many other wonderful things to take a picture of?

The theme of the juice bar was Fantasia and the popular location served up delicious, cold drinks. Kids loved it, but it quickly became a location hated by the cast members who worked at the neighboring Mickey Mouse Theater. The theater's clientele were often excitable kids with sticky hands, hopped up on sugary grape juice procured from the juice bar.

The location eventually made way for Geppetto's Toy Shop, a location that is now used for character meet and greets.
