Disney to add booze at the Magic Kingdom *(Update with Vote of the Week)
Written by Robert Niles

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.)

What do you think?
Update: Let's make this our vote of the week:
