Alcohol Served at Disney World

Guests can purchase beer, wine, and cocktails at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, EPCOT, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Many guests enjoy “drinking around the world” at EPCOT, while others think it can get out of hand on the weekends. Most people are somewhere in the middle.

Alcohol is served at both table service and quick service locations throughout these 3 Disney World theme parks. Note that guests are allowed to carry quick service drinks with them inside the theme park, but not take them outside the park. This even holds true for guests staying in walking distance, such as Disney’s Boardwalk Resort.

Another interesting fact is that Disney cast members are not allowed to provide lids with alcoholic beverages, only non-alcoholic drinks.

About a decade ago, Disney’s Magic Kingdom broke a 40-year tradition of no alcohol being served there. Many people were upset about this thinking it went against Walt Disney’s wishes, while others embraced the change. This change allowed table service restaurants inside Disney’s Magic Kingdom to serve a variety of beer and wine.

However, no quick service locations were permitted to serve adult beverages. Not only that, but Disney’s Magic Kingdom only served beer and wine, no liquor drinks are currently served there. Good or bad, this limits alcohol at this theme park.

Disney will be introducing drinks with liquor in addition to the beer and wine offerings at its table service restaurants. Mixed drinks containing liquor are coming to Skipper Canteen, Liberty Tree Tavern, and The Diamond Horseshoe.
