Many people ask us if you can get alcohol at the Magic Kingdom, while many restaurants all over Walt Disney World serve alcohol at the Magic Kingdom it is very new.
There was a time when Magic Kingdom, unlike the other theme parks at Walt Disney World, was a dry park. This meant that beer, wine and liquor was not on offer. However, over the last six years, Disney has gradually taken steps to alter this beverage policy and introduce alcohol to the theme park.
The arrival of Be Our Guest – When New Fantasyland was unveiled to the public in 2012, fans were quick to notice that alcohol had been included on the dinner menu at Be Our Guest, making it the first restaurant within the Magic Kingdom to offer alcohol.
Over the years, several other Table Service options were quick to follow. Cinderella’s Royal Table, Tony’s Town Square Restaurant, Skippers Canteen and Liberty Tree Tavern were all offering wine and beer by the end of 2016.
Therefore it’s not surprising that Disney announced yesterday that two other Table Service restaurants would be adding alcoholic beverages to the menu. As of yesterday (May 7), The Crystal Palace added wine (white, red or sparkling), beer, hard cider and mimosas to the menu.
The Plaza Restaurant also started serving alcohol with wine (white, sparkling or red) sangria, beer and hard cider making their way to the menu.
Many Disney insiders speculated that more restaurants would follow suit as Disney World altered their Dining Plans in 2018 to include alcoholic beverages for those over the age of 21.
However, it should be noted (at least for now) that Magic Kingdom remains slightly different from the other four theme parks in there are no standalone bars or to-go beers, wines and cocktails on offer. At the moment, alcohol is available but only at the Table Service restaurants listed above.
