The Magic Kingdom has expanded its guest offerings to include beer and alcohol … but only in specific locations. Read on to discover everything you need to know when taking a break at the Most Magical Place on Earth.
When did the Magic Kingdom start serving alcohol?
The original theme park at Disney World was a dry destination when it opened in 1971. It wasn’t until 2012 that Guests age 21 years and up could begin to purchase alcohol at Magic Kingdom in a single restaurant. Additional restaurants were added in 2016, however it still remains a tightly managed activity; currently only seven table-service Magic Kingdom restaurants serve alcohol. In September 2022, offerings were again expanded — this time allowing some locations to offer a few specialty cocktails which include harder liquors such as rum, tequila, bourbon, or gin.
Guests shouldn’t expect to stop at one of these locations for a quick one except in limited circumstances. There are no bars, so you should either make reservations at these table service restaurants or anticipate blocking some time to wait for a table to open.
During the busiest times of the year, table service restaurants have occasionally been unable to accommodate any walk-ups, so a dining reservation is likely the best choice if you’re looking to drink while in the Magic Kingdom.
