History of Alcohol at the Park

When Magic Kingdom opened in 1971, alcohol was not allowed in the premises of the park. As the years passed, other Disney parks began serving it, but Magic Kingdom did not budge.

It wasn't until 2012 that alcohol was finally allowed to be sold at the parks. Even then, it is only offered in certain areas of the park.

Why it Wasn't Allowed

Walt himself, actually preferred visitors to enjoy the park experience without the consumption of alcohol.

In fact he was quoted as saying:

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

to the Saturday evening post in 1956.

Where You Can Buy Alcohol in Magic Kingdom

At Table Service Restaurants! That is Disney's term that simply means 'Sit-down Restaurant'.

In these restaurants, you'll sit down, be handed a menu, be served by a staff member, and you'll pay for your food at your table once you're done eating.

These table service restaurants now require a reservation. You can reserve a spot through their Dining site, My Disney Experience app, or even by calling 407-939-3463 (they open at 7 am EST).

Table Service Reservations

If you forget to book a reservation, you can test your luck by walking up to the hostess stand and seeing if they're taking walk-in's. There's a slight chance that it'll work, and always worth a shot in case that someone canceled or no-showed.

Btw if you no-show or cancel your reservation after 11:59 pm on the day before your arrival, you'll pay a $10 cancellation fee.

Restaurants Where You Can Buy Alcohol

It's important to know that alcohol menus vary by restaurant, so you'll want to look at their menu prior to sitting down. Additionally, most restaurants vary by time of day.

The breakfast menu will normally be different than the dinner menu.
