A bar hopper’s guide to Disney World

The 70,000 cast members who work at Walt Disney World in central Florida are experts at delivering magic – and, if you’re over 21, delicious adult beverages.

Though the Magic Kingdom is mostly “dry,” except for one restaurant, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom offer dozens of places to sip, savor and toast your vacation at “the house the mouse built.”

From imported and domestic beer and wine to creative concoctions you won’t find elsewhere, we walked the parks to find all the places to buy alcoholic drinks. If your desire is to drink your way around the park or just have a fine wine at dinner, this is the definitive guide to where to find a quality beverage. You might be surprised that it’s not a small (drinking) world after all. But, as always, drink responsibly — especially when Space Mountain is on the agenda!

Magic Kingdom

The first Walt Disney World theme park in Orlando, Fla. debuted in 1971, and it is the last of Disney’s quartet of theme parks to introduce the sale of alcohol to park-goers. The Magic Kingdom began serving alcohol with the opening of Be Our Guest Restaurant in 2012 as part of the Fantasyland expansion. It’s the only place in the park to get an adult beverage.


Be Our Guest Restaurant: The Beauty and The Beast-themed Be Our Guest Restaurant offers fine French wines and beers alongside fine French fare in the Beast’s enchanted castle. Diners who dine-in at the 500-seat restaurant during dinner hours can select from 21 French and California sparkling, white, red and dessert wines and seven Belgian and French beers. Wines are available by the glass and bottle. Options include Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut Yellow Label, Helfrich Pinot Gris and Terra d’Oro Moscato. Despite it’s name, adjacent Gaston’s Tavern doesn’t serve alcohol; however, it does serve the non-alcoholic LeFou’s Brew, a concoction of frozen apple juice with a hint of toasted marshmallow, topped with passion fruit mango foam served in a souvenir goblet or souvenir stein.

Special Event: In addition to fixed attractions, Walt Disney World offers park-goers exclusive opportunities to enjoy the park (and alcohol!) with special events available for an additional price by reservation only.
