Where to get alcohol at Magic Kingdom

Where to get alcohol at Magic Kingdom

For a lot of people, vacation is all about kicking back with a cold drink of the alcoholic variety.

And since Walt Disney World is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the country, it stands to reason that people who visit are excited about grabbing a beer on a hot day or trying a new, festive cocktail or two.

There’s just one problem: If you’re at Magic Kingdom, procuring said alcohol is a bit complicated.

Unlike other parks like Epcot, where there is literally a festival called Food and Wine, there are no walk-up bars at Magic Kingdom. In fact, it was only recently that you were able to order alcohol anywhere at Magic Kingdom at all.

And while you won’t find any bars at the park, all is not lost. Here’s everything you need to know about where to get alcohol at Magic Kingdom.

Why is there no alcohol at Magic Kingdom?

For a long time, both Disneyland and Magic Kingdom were totally dry parks from the time they were offered, and that was because of the man himself, Walt Disney.

“No liquor, no beer, nothing. Because that brings in a rowdy element. That brings people that we don’t want and I feel they don’t need it,” Walt once said in an interview with the Saturday Evening Post.

But times change, things evolve, and eventually, both Disneyland and Disney World’s alcohol policies did, too. When Be Our Guest opened in 2012, it was the first and only place in the park to sell alcohol, and soon enough, every Table Service restaurant at Magic Kingdom would follow suit.

Which places serve alcohol at Magic Kingdom?

You can find alcohol at all Table Service restaurants at Magic Kingdom, and though offerings lean heavy on beer and wine, you can find a few specialty drinks at certain locations.

Tony’s Town Square Restaurant

Tony's Town Square

This Italian Lady & the Tramp inspired restaurant is located on Main Street, U.S.A. and it also happens to be the only Table Service eatery at Magic Kingdom that offers outdoor seating.

  • What’s on the menu: Beer and wine (including the Italian Peroni), along with a limited cocktail selection.
  • Exclusive specialty drinks: To match the theme, there are three Italian-style cocktails served here. Along with a peach bellini made with prosecco, there are two hard liquor options: the Limoncello Sidecar, which is made with Caravella Limoncello Liqueur, Cointreau Liqueur, Laird’s Applejack Brandy, and lemon juice, and the Little Italy Cocktail, which includes Knob Creek Rye Whiskey, Amaro Averna Siciliano Liqueur, and Martini & Rossi Sweet Vermouth.
  • Tip: Tony’s is a great post-fireworks reservation, and ideal for grabbing a late dinner and some wine while waiting out the crowds before catching a bus back to the resort.

The Plaza Restaurant

Also located on Main Street, U.S.A., The Plaza is famous for their ice cream… but if you eat lunch or dinner there, you can also grab a drink!

  • What’s on the menu: A few different beer and wine options, along with champagne and a few cocktail options.
  • Exclusive specialty drinks: A mimosa and a white sangria are both on the menu, plus two cocktails that include liquor: the Jack Rose made with Laird’s Applejack Brandy, hibiscus grenadine, and lemon and lime juice, and the Last Word, made with Fords Gin, Green Chartreuse Liqueur, Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, and lime juice. These cocktails can be found at some of the other Magic Kingdom restaurants as well.
  • Tip: Leave room for dessert — or one of the Plaza’s famous milkshakes (which, unfortunately, are not alcoholic).

Cinderella’s Royal Table

Cinderella's Royal Table

Cinderella’s Royal Table is one of the hardest reservations to snag at Magic Kingdom — it’s a princess character meal inside the castle, which really says it all. It’s open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and can be a bit pricy, but worth trying out at least once.

  • What’s on the menu: Breakfast is limited to a few cocktails (including a mimosa and a Bloody Mary) but it widens up for lunch and dinner, with a large wine menu and several different beers to choose from.
  • Exclusive specialty drinks: Unlike other Magic Kingdom menus, Cinderella’s Royal Table has a dessert wine menu and several different sparkling wines, including sparkling apple juice for those who don’t want to drink anything alcoholic.
  • Tip: To get the most bang for your buck, consider ordering from the restaurant’s large selection of flights. At breakfast, that’s limited to The Royal Breakfast Flight, which features a mimosa, a bellini, and sangria. At lunch and dinner, there are 5 different flights to choose from, which include various wines and champagnes and range from $15 to $24.

The Crystal Palace

If you’re planning to eat a meal with Winnie the Pooh and friends on Main Street, you’ll be happy to know that you can also order several different alcoholic drinks at The Crystal Palace.

  • What’s on the menu: Beer, wine, and hard cider can be found here, along with some specialty drinks.
  • Exclusive specialty drinks: The drink menu here remains the same throughout all three meal periods. Cocktails include sangria, a mimosa, and a Bloody Mary, along with the Jack Rose and Last Word cocktails you can find elsewhere in the park.
  • Tip: The changeover from the breakfast buffet to the lunch buffet starts around 11 a.m. each morning, so make a reservation around 10:30 a.m. to get a taste of both menus!

Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen

This is a rather adventurous stop in Adventureland themed after Jungle Cruise, and the alcohol menu here definitely reflects that!

  • What’s on the menu: This restaurant offers a unique beer and wine menu, with standouts like the Kungaloosh Spiced Excursion Ale, which is only offered at Disney World. The wine menu includes exotic offerings from South Africa, Argentina, and Chile.
  • Exclusive specialty drinks: Several different cocktails are on the menu here. Along with a basic sangria, you can order the Golden Haze Margarita, made with Teremana Blanco Tequila, Grand Marnier Liqueur, agave syrup, smoked chili bitters, and lime juice, or the Jungle Bird, made with Gosling Black Seal Rum, Campari Liqueur, cane syrup, pineapple, and lime juice. Beer fans will enjoy the Jungle Navigation Co. Shandy, which is Blue Moon Belgian White Ale mixed with lemonade.
  • Tip: There’s a secret menu here — all you have to do is ask your server about it. That will unlock different food and drink items, including beer and cocktail options that are always changing.

Liberty Tree Tavern

In Liberty Square, you’ll find Liberty Tree Tavern, which is themed after colonial America, offering a menu that will give you big Thanksgiving vibes in the best way.

  • What’s on the menu: Given the theme, it probably won’t surprise you to hear that multiple Samuel Adams beers are offered here, along with a few others — and wine and champagne.
  • Exclusive specialty drinks: A basic sangria and mimosa are on the menu here, and the Inkeeper’s Shandy, a combo of Samuel Adams lager and Angry Orchard hard cider. The other cocktail on the menu is the Gold Rush, made with Elijah Craig 12yr Kentucky Straight Bourbon, lemon juice, and honey, topped with crystallized ginger.
  • Tip: If you’re not in the mood for booze, try the Tavern Punch, which is Dole Whip Lemon and Sprite.

The Diamond Horseshoe

Diamond Horseshoe

The Diamond Horseshoe is also located in Liberty Square and is themed after an Old West music hall.

  • What’s on the menu: The beer, wine, and cocktail menu is identical to the one at Liberty Tree Tavern (as is the food menu), including the Sam Adams selections.
  • Exclusive specialty drinks: The Gold Rush and the Inkeeper’s Shandy is offered here, along with sangria and mimosas.
  • Tip: The big difference between the Diamond Horseshoe and Liberty Tree Tavern is the fact that the Diamond Horseshoe has a bit of a different theme and a piano player for a little extra entertainment, so keep that in mind when booking your dining reservations.

Be Our Guest

Be Our Guest

Enter the Beast’s castle at Be Our Guest in Fantasyland for a yummy prix fixe menu and a healthy number of options for beer, wine, and cocktails (plus an appearance from the master himself).

  • What’s on the menu: Along with a big beer and wine menu, Be Our Guest also has a separate private label menu of wine and champagne that includes a flight of your choice of any three wines.
  • Exclusive specialty drinks: Besides the basic Bloody Mary, Be Our Guest serves two cocktails: a French 75, and the Boulevardier, which is made with Knob Creek Rye Whiskey, Campari Liqueur, and Martini & Rossi Sweet Vermouth.
  • Tip: You can find a Disney fan favorite here: the same Schöfferhofer Grapefruit Hefeweizen that has become so beloved in the Germany pavilion at Epcot.

Dessert parties are another option.

Another way to drink alcohol at Magic Kingdom is by attending a fireworks dessert party. These parties come at an additional fee, but offer all-you-can-drink beer, wine, and champagne, along with a buffet of snacks and dessert items and a reserved spot to view the Happily Ever After fireworks from.

Where to get alcohol near Magic Kingdom

If you don’t want to make a reservation for Table Service dining to get your booze on, you have plenty of other options. Magic Kingdom is surrounded by monorail resorts, which all have pretty awesome bars with yummy food and drinks you can check out.

These are some of our favorite bars nearby:

Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto and Tiki Bar

Trader Sam's patio
  • Where: at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
  • What they serve: This bar serves fruity drinks with fun souvenir glasses (which are optional for purchase) along with appetizers like sushi and pan-fried dumplings. If you want a drink and an experience, this is the place to be, since it’s one of the most uniquely themed bars anywhere in Walt Disney World. Though the inside bar fills up quickly, you can order the same drinks outside on the terrace.
  • Most popular pick: the Nautilus is a popular drink here — designed to serve two in a boat shaped like (you guessed it) a nautilus submarine, it’s made with Cruzan Mango Rum, Appleton Estate Reserve Rum, Combier Crème de Pêche de Vigne Liqueur, falernum, and tropical juices.
  • WDW Prep School favorite: the Krakatoa Punch, made with Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum, Pyrat XO Reserve Rum, almond, Sam’s Gorilla Grog, and hibiscus grenadine.

Tambu Lounge

  • Where: at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, right outside of ‘Ohana
  • What they serve: Not only can you order ‘Ohana’s famous noodles here, but there’s also an extensive menu of beer, wine, and cocktails that will give you all the tropical vibes.
  • Most popular pick: You’ll often see people drinking the Backscratcher here, which is a cocktail made with Bacardi Superior Rum, Plantation Original Dark Rum, guava-passion fruit juice, and Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey and garnished with a full-sized bamboo backscratcher — it’s hard to miss!
  • WDW Prep School favorite: the Lapu Lapu is such a fun drink to order here, because it’s served in a pineapple and topped with umbrellas! It’s made with Plantation Original Dark Rum and tropical fruit juices and topped with Gosling’s 151 Rum.

The Enchanted Rose

  • Where: at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, second floor
  • What they serve: Along with appetizers, coffee, and a few mocktails, the alcohol menu here is huge. There’s a Wine Library (fitting for the Beauty and the Beast theme) you can order smaller pours from to try several different red and white wines at once, plus several different options when it comes to beer, hard cider, champagne, and cocktails.
  • Most popular pick: the Lavender Fog, made with Nolet’s Silver Dry Gin, Rothman Crème de Violette, English breakfast tea, vanilla, and cream.
  • WDW Prep School favorite: the Floral Bitter Beauty, which is made with Hendrick’s Gin, St~Germain Elderflower Liqueur, Campari, Aperol, lemon, and soda (and it’s pink and really cute).

The Steakhouse 71 Lounge

  • Where: at Disney’s Contemporary Resort at Steakhouse 71
  • What they serve: Beer, wine, and several cocktails you can only get here — plus a good selection of appetizer foods, like the Stack Burger, shrimp cocktail, and PB&J Chicken Wings.
  • Most popular pick: Considering how much people love POG juice (us included), it’s no surprise that the giant 1971 Sunset has been a hint. Made with Herradura Reposado Tequila, POG juice, rosemary simple syrup, and grenadine, it’s meant to serve two.
  • WDW Prep School favorite: If you’re looking for a pick me up to get you through the rest of your Magic Kingdom day, try the Curious Cold Brew, which is Joffrey’s cold brew spiked with Maker’s Mark Bourbon with maple and vanilla flavors.

Geyser Point

  • Where: at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge (the monorail doesn’t stop here, but you can take a boat from Magic Kingdom)
  • What they serve: Bar snacks and rustic-themed meals, plus cocktails, beer, and wine in a peaceful outdoor setting
  • Most popular pick: The Huckleberry Punch is a favorite here, and is made with 44° North Mountain Huckleberry Vodka, Bols Crème de Cassis, lemon juice, and cranberry juice.
  • WDW Prep School favorite: The Black Cherry Mule, made with Tito’s Handmade Vodka and Fever Tree ginger beer, with black cherry, lime juice, and pure cane sugar. And if you’re hungry, the waffle fries here are amazing!

FAQs about alcohol at Magic Kingdom

Can you walk around the park with alcohol?

While you can walk around the other three theme parks while enjoying your drink, that doesn’t happen in Magic Kingdom, since alcohol is only served at Table Service restaurants (and dessert parties, of course). You’ll have to finish your drink before leaving the restaurant.

Can you bring alcohol into the park?

Though Disney does allow guests to bring outside food and drink into Magic Kingdom, alcohol is prohibited — and that goes for all of the Disney theme parks, not just this one.

How strict is Disney with alcohol at Magic Kingdom?

When Disney says something is prohibited, they mean it. Trying to sneak alcohol past security could result in being banned from the parks, which would be a huge bummer. It’s not worth it, especially when there are so many good restaurants with huge alcohol menus both in and nearby Magic Kingdom.

Tips

  • If you want to start your day with a yummy drink, make a reservation at Steakhouse 71 at the Contemporary Resort. The refillable mimosas are a great deal, and then you can hop on the Monorail or walk to the park (and take advantage of the shorter security lines at the resort).
  • Looking for a fun cocktail but don’t want to miss the fireworks? Head over to the Polynesian Resort after dark, and grab a cocktail on the Trader Sam’s patio for an amazing view.
  • Another fun fireworks option: Book a dining reservation at California Grill during the show (check what time Happily Ever After will be showing during your stay beforehand) and you can enjoy dinner and drinks from the top of the Contemporary Resort. The restaurant dims the lights and pipes in music for the fireworks each night.
