In a land far far away where princesses and six-foot ducks roam the streets, where you can fly with Dumbo, go mining with the Seven Dwarfs and swim with the Little Mermaid, you can now order enough lager to see you merrily rolling in an alcoholic ecstasy down Main Street USA proving that dreams, really can come true.
Yes, that's right, in the world's most famous theme park created by a teetotaler, you can now drink yourself silly as you and your family explore the delights of #DisneyWorld's #MagicKingdom. Having previously been declared somewhat of an alcohol-free zone, this is a hugely controversial move on behalf of the #Disney higher-ups, and not everybody is happy about it.
Boozy And The Beast: A Gateway To The Tragic Kingdom

Initially built as a magical, fairytale world back in Florida in 1971 which, according to Walt Disney's brother Roy O. Disney, was:
"a tribute to the philosophy and life of Walter Elias Disney,"
The Magic Kingdom has transformed into less of a Wonderland and more of a Mad Hatter's tea party in recent years. Making the shocking decision to allow alcohol to be served in the park back in 2012 by adding it to the 'Be Our Guest' Beauty and the Beast themed restaurant menu, it appears that the park managers care more about their guests singing a "song as old as wine" than creating lasting, wholesome family friendly memories.
Lady And The Trashed: Now Four More Restaurants Will Be Serving Alcohol On-Site
Alongside the "Be Our Guest" restaurant, Magic Kingdom guests will now be able to buy alcohol from the following on-site restaurants:
- The Lady and the Tramps' restaurant "Tony's Town Square" where you can buy, among other things, a bottle of family-friendly sambuca.
- Cinderella's "Royal Table" where you can binge like a princess on high end sparkling wine and champagne.
- The American history themed "Liberty Tree Tavern" where you can guzzle American brewed lagers, ciders, wine and your inner pain.
- The "Jungle Navigation Co. Skipper Canteen" where, along with dubiously labelled 'jungle' cuisine choices which include African, South American and Asian dishes, you can knock back some of the finest international alcohol the World has to offer.
Malt Disney: The Other Three Theme Parks However Are Already Flowing With Liquor
While the Magic Kingdom was the first of the four theme parks built as part of the 'Walt Disney World' complex, it is the last to relax its alcohol prohibition laws. The other three parks: Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom, all serve alcohol to the guests. Such highlights include:
- The Avocado Margarita in Epcot's Mexican Pavilion.
- The Sake Bar at the very back of the Epcot's Japanese gift shop.
- The mini glo-tini at Epcot's Le Cellier Steakhouse.
- Tiki drinks at Trader Sam's Grog Grotto in the Polynesian Village.
- The flask of shame guests would previously have to sneak into The Magic Kingdom if they wanted the luxury of an alcoholic beverage while in the 'dry-zone.'
However, just because alcohol was already available in the other three Disney resorts, does it make it okay to drag it into The Magic Kingdom?
