Disney’s Magic Kingdom was once alcohol free, but that’s changing rapidly. Check out the details and all the locations now serving cocktails.
Alcohol 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 not serving alcohol. 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 until recently.
Bringing Liquor to the Park
Last month, we shared that Magic Kingdom was introducing liquor to select table service locations within Magic Kingdom HERE. At that time, Disney debuted drinks with liquor in addition to the beer and wine offerings at Skipper Canteen, Liberty Tree Tavern, and The Diamond Horseshoe beginning September 13. You can see details on these drinks HERE.
Today, Disney adds a fourth dining location inside Magic Kingdom that will serve mixed drinks with liquor. For the first time ever, Tony’s Town Square is serving cocktails.
Check out the drinks available below:
- Little Italy – Knob Creek Rye Whiskey, Amaro Averna Siciliano Liqueur, Sweet Vermouth, garnished with Luxardo Cherries
- Limoncello Sidecar – Caravella Limoncello, Cointreau Liqueur, Applejack Brandy, Lemon Juice
Starting today, Tony’s Town Square Restaurant serves cocktails with liquor in them.
