Where To Find Beer And Alcohol in Magic Kingdom?
While you might want to explore this park with a cold beverage in hand, unlike the other Disney parks in Florida, you can’t walk around outside with alcohol at Magic Kingdom.
Even though you can now buy alcohol in the park, you have to buy it with a meal in a restaurant! Since 2018 every sit-down restaurant at Magic Kingdom has sold alcohol. So no matter what you feel like eating, you can always wash it down with a cold beer or glass of wine.
It’s true that Magic Kingdom may not offer the flexibility of Epcot’s drinking around the world … BUT it is fair to say that there is an equal amount of fun!
Why Was Alcohol Banned At Magic Kingdom?
It wasn’t always possible to purchase alcohol in Magic Kingdom. In fact, if Walt Disney had it his way, it seems like the parks would never have sold it.
This is because Mr. Disney himself was completely against Magic Kingdom’s serving of alcohol, which at the time was the only existing Disney park in Florida.
However, times (and corporate priorities) change. Now, like the other Disney World Parks you can buy a cold beer in the Magic Kingdom to combat the Florida heat (even though you have to drink it inside an air-conditioned restaurant).
