New alcohol policy goes into effect at Disney World hotels

New alcohol policy goes into effect at Disney World hotels

This new policy could definitely make getting alcohol a bit harder. What do you think of this change?

Love it or hate it, alcohol flows freely at Disney World. All four parks serve alcohol, Disney Springs has an active nightlife, and Guests can consume alcohol bars and lounges at every Disney hotel.

Not only that, but alcohol can even be delivered to your hotel. With grocery delivery to your room more popular than ever, it is incredibly easy to get food and beverages to your hotel. If you room is not ready or you plan to be gone during your arrival window, Bell Services will hold your groceries and deliver it to your room at your convenience.

For better or for worse, this has created more work for Cast Members at hotel. Not only do they need the space to hold so many bags, but they need more Cast Members to deliver said goods.

It also creates an issue for alcohol, which requires Guests to be 21 years old to consume here in the United States. There was a bit of a confusion for a while.

Some vendors were able to deliver alcohol while others were not. Sometimes Guests needed to be present to show ID in order for Disney to accept it.

Now, Disney is making it even across the board with this new policy. Effective August 1, 2023, Disney will no longer hold alcohol for you at bell services.

If your grocery order contains alcohol, they will not accept it. You will need to be present to accept your alcohol if you are having groceries delivered.

Bell Services will no longer hold alcohol for you.

You may remember a few years ago Disney made another change. They no longer hold perishable food items at Bell Services. That means Guests with split stays who do not have their own vehicle must get rid of any unused goods before moving to a different hotel.

We belong to DVC and only do 2 meals per day. We buy snacks, desserts and beverages. To keep in our room.

So, with all due respect, why even comment on a situation that you've clearly stated has nothing to with you? Honestly?

Water is free at the parks and in the hotels. Using the provided cups in the room or a reusable water bottle also saves money.
