Disney To Sell Beer And Wine

In it's 41-years, Disney World’s Magic Kingdom has never served alcohol, but it does now.

Disney says beer and wine will be on the menu when the new Be Our Guest restaurant opens in November as part of the Fantasyland expansion.

Disney officials said they’ve listened to feedback from guests who’ve said they’d like the option of being served beer or wine. 

Even though beer and wine will be served, it will only be served during dinner hours, and Disney hasn’t decided what time dinner service will begin.

The Be Our Guest restaurant is based on Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” and will serve French cuisine. 
Be Our Guest will offer 20 wines, almost all by the glass. The restaurant will serve several Belgian and French beers, but no domestic. The restaurant’s menu, including the full beer and wine list, is posted at

Disney’s Vice President of Food and Beverage Maribeth Bisienere says it’s all about the dining experience.

Other Disney World parks; Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Epcot, also sell alcohol.
