Will I Get Carded If I Try To Purchase Alcohol at Walt Disney World?

Disney Alcohol Policy

Q: Will I carded if I try to purchase alcohol at Walt Disney World?

A: You sure will. As the weather heats up at Walt Disney World so does our desire to cool off with a frosty pint, an icy margarita or have a pina colada by the pool.  However, before saddling up to you nearest watering hole and ordering a drink it pays to know what the ID requirements are.  I’m not a particularly young looking 40 year old but I’ve been carded every time I’ve ordered a drink on Disney property.  To make sure that you’re covered in the event of an ID check, here’s a quick rundown of the valid forms of ID that you can use to purchase alcohol at Walt Disney World.

The following forms of ID will be accepted as proof of age:

  • U.S. state driver’s license (includes U.S. territories – Puerto Rico, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa)
  • U.S. state ID (includes U.S territories)
  • U.S. Military ID
  • Original passport
  • Copy of passport (either on paper or captured on a mobile device), along with a government photo ID that verifies the person and birth date shown on the copy
  • NEXUS card issued by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (Canadian Guests Only)

Visitors from outside the United States are required to present both a valid passport and another form of government-issued photo dientification from their country of origin.  Foreign driver’s licenses or ID cards are not acceptable by themselves.

Alcohol will not be served to anyone who does not present the appropriate identification upon request.

So if you’re heading to Walt Disney World don’t miss out on some of the absolutely incredible drinks on offer by not having the appropriate identification.  You have been warned!
