When Be Our Guest opened in New Fantasyland in 2012, it became the first and only restaurant in Magic Kingdom to serve alcohol. The restaurant has a full list of sparkling, red, white, and dessert wines plus beer.
Now, other Magic Kingdom restaurants will follow suit.
Like Disneyland, which only served alcohol at Club 33, Magic Kingdom has always been mostly dry. Walt didn’t want alcohol served in his park(s) because “There was always a fear that people would drink to excess and become unruly.”
If you’d now like to have an adult beverage with lunch or dinner, head to one of the restaurants listed below. You’ll notice that the drinks have been consciously paired with appropriate dishes and they fit the overall theme of the restaurant.
Tony’s Town Square
This Italian restaurant has the same name as the one featured in Lady and the Tramp. Tony’s will serve Italian wine and beer. One pairing suggestion from the chefs is the chianti superiore with the grilled pork chop with mushroom-bean pancetta ragu and marsala reduction.
Liberty Tree Tavern
This American Colonial restaurant will serve beer, cider, and domestic wine to fit the theme. The chefs suggest New England Lager with the patriot’s platter, a year-round Thanksgiving Day feast.
This recent addition in Adventureland will offer a Riesling that will go well with the Trader Sam’s head-on shrimp.
Finally, Cinderella’s Royal Table will serve champagne and sparkling wine.
Are you OK with additional Magic Kingdom restaurants serving alcohol?
