Disney to add booze at the Magic Kingdom *(Update with Vote of the Week)
Written by Robert Niles
Yep. It's happened. Today, Walt Disney World announced that it will start serving alcohol at the Magic Kingdom, once the new Be Our Guest restaurant opens in November.Tweet
From the Disney Parks blog, which tried to bury the news deep in a post about the restaurant's menu:
And just for dinner, select wines and beers will be offered that complement the French-inspired cuisine.
Disney serves alcohol at Disneyland Paris, but not at the other Magic Kingdom theme parks - the original Disneyland in California, Tokyo Disneyland, and Hong Kong Disneyland. (Alcohol is available in the private Club 33s at Disneyland and Tokyo Disneyland, but guests cannot access those without an invitation from a member.) So this decision will leave Hong Kong Disneyland as the only totally alcohol-free Disney theme park, and will reduce to three the number of Disney parks where alcohol is not available to "regular" guests.
What do you think?
Update: Let's make this our vote of the week:
