[QUOTE=hanwill;1069174]if that is true… I would assume that Coke gets free advertising… But does anyone remember seeing ads for Coke at WDW?[/QUOTE]
Fountain dispensers cost next to nothing when compared to cans or bottles.
They cost next to nothing anyway. It’s almost pure profit.
That’s why fast food places basically charge for the cup and then allow you to refill for free.
Coke doesn’t really need to have any signs when every beverage is a Coke product, including Minute Maid anything, Gold Peak tea, Dasani water, Hi-C, and a bunch of other stuff. Worldwide, there are something like 120 different Coca Cola Corp beverages.
They could give Disney syrup all day long for the beverage dispensers, just so long as every bottled beverage sold on property is a Coke product that they get their full price for.
Not that I’ve heard they do give Disney the syrups for free.
Even if they did, they still need to pay for the water and also whatever carbonation is added.
The dispensers themselves are big Coke ads.
