Contrary to popular belief, alcohol is sold in Magic Kingdom.
After over 40 years of being a dry park, Magic Kingdom officially started selling beer and wine in 2012 exclusively at select restaurants.
This means that guests aren’t allowed to carry their alcoholic drinks around the park since they are only allowed to drink inside at table service restaurants, nor will you see any beer or wine openly served throughout the park.
In this quick guide, I’ll show you where you can get alcohol in Magic Kingdom and what restaurant sells it.
Plus, I’ll even point out some great spots nearby Magic Kingdom that you can grab a great cocktail.

Where do they sell alcohol in Magic Kingdom?
Currently, only eight restaurants in Magic Kingdom serve alcohol:
- Be Our Guest
- Tony’s Town Square Restaurant
- Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen
- Liberty Tree Tavern
- The Crystal Palace
- The Diamond Horseshoe
- The Plaza Restaurant
- Cinderella’s Royal Table
You’ll only find alcohol at all table service restaurants park-wide with Be Our Guest as an exemption since it is considered a quick service restaurant for breakfast and lunch before switching to table service for dinner.
You can also get alcohol at Club 33 inside of the park if you have a membership.
One thing to keep in mind is that the alcohol menus are not the same at each restaurant since they vary by breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Plus, each restaurant tends to offer drinks that go with their themes.
With that said, here’s a detailed rundown of each location that sells alcohol inside of Magic Kingdom:
Be Our Guest
- Offers private label champagne and wines inspired by the movie
- Offers a handful of French wines and beer
- Beer from Belgium along with wines from Napa and Sonoma Coast
Tony’s Town Square Restaurant
- Italian wines such as Moscato and Prosecco, along with a handful of wines from Tuscany
- Offers Italian beer along with a Belgian pilsner
- Also offers a wine cocktail (Bellini)
The Crystal Palace
- Domestic beers and ciders along with a hard cider
- Also offers two specialty cocktails – mimosa and a house-made white sangria
The Plaza Restaurant
- Offers a handful of wines including brut, riesling, sauvignon black, cabs, pinot, and chardonnay
- Domestic beer
The Diamond Horseshoe
- Specialty cocktails such as a cider shandy, house-made sangria, and mimosa
- domestic beer and hard cider
- Also offers a selection of California wines
Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen
- Beer including an African-inspired ale
- Wines from South Africa, Chile, and Argentina, to name a few
- Specialty cocktails including sangria and shandy
- By far one of the better places to get a beer at Magic Kingdom
Liberty Tree Tavern
- A large selection of Samuel Adams beer along with a handful of other domestics including a hard cider
- Offers a few wines, sold by the bottle or glass, from California and Oregon
Cinderella’s Royal Table
- For breakfast, they offer specialty cocktails such as mimosa, sangria, and Bellini
- During lunch and dinner, you can get champagne and sparkling wine
- They also offer Cinderella-themed flights of champagne, sparking wine, cocktails, and red/white wine
- They also feature an extensive wine list from France, Italy, Germany, and California along with pricer Reserve Wines by the bottle
- All beer options are imports from France, Belgium, and Canada
One thing to note is that serving alcohol solely in table-service spots is by design. I believe this helps keep the rowdiness down in Magic Kingdom since guests can’t walk around the park with an alcoholic drink but instead must only drink it inside of restaurants.
So unfortunately, don’t expect to be strolling down Main Street U.S.A. with a beer in hand.
Magic Kingdom Fireworks Dessert Parties
Lastly, you’ll find alcohol served during all Magic Kingdom fireworks dessert parties inside of the Tomorrowland Terrace.
The firework dessert parties offer an assortment of beer and wine for guests ages 21 and over. And it’s unlimited.
What type of alcohol is available Magic Kingdom?
Currently, the only type of alcohol available at Magic Kingdom is beer, wine, hard cider, and sparkling wine.
Some restaurants also offer specialty cocktails but they are only made with the alcohol types listed above.
Is there liquor at Magic Kingdom?
No, there is no liquor at Magic Kingdom.
Although some restaurants inside Magic Kingdom may list cocktails on their menus, they are not made with hard liquor but instead are made with beer, wine, or sparkling wine.

No, you cannot walk around Magic Kingdom with alcohol.
Even though you can walk around the other three Disney World parks with alcohol in hand, Magic Kingdom is the only exception.
Your drinks must be enjoyed within the restaurant.
Walt Disney’s View on Alcohol inside of Disney Parks
Walt Disney preferred all guests to enjoy Disney World and Disneyland without the consumption of alcohol. Matter of fact, he was even quoted in 1956 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.– Walt Disney
It wasn’t until 1982 when Epcot opened its door as the first Disney World park to sell alcohol.
Even Disneyland followed suit 37 years later in 2019 when the bar, Oga’s Cantina inside of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge, started serving alcohol and cocktails. But just like Magic Kingdom, you can’t bring any of those cool Star Wars drinks outside into the park.
When did Magic Kingdom start serving alcohol?
Magic Kingdom was a dry park from when it opened in 1971 until 2012 when guests were finally able to purchase alcohol at a single restaurant, Be Our Guest.
It wasn’t until 2016 when some additional restaurants finally started serving beer and wine – Tony’s Town Square Restaurant, Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen, Cinderella’s Royal Table, and Liberty Tree Travern.
Now all table service restaurants currently serve beer, hard cider, and wine (red, wine, rosé, and sparkling).
Can you bring alcohol into Magic Kingdom?
Bringing alcohol into Magic Kingdom is not allowed under any circumstance. This is actually the case for every park including both water parks.
I recommend you don’t even try to sneak it in as you can get into trouble and possibly even be banned.
It definitely ain’t worth the risk.
How much is beer and wine at Magic Kingdom?
The alcohol prices at Magic Kingdom are pretty similar compared to the rest of the parks and resorts across Disney World property.
- Wine at Magic Kingdom costs around $11 – $17 a glass on average.
- Beer at Magic Kingdom costs around $8 – $10 a serving on average.
- Cocktails at Magic Kingdom cost anywhere between $10 – $12 each on average.
