More Alcohol is Coming to the Magic Kingdom. Here’s What You Need to Know

2. There will be differently-themed drinks at each dining establishment

As mentioned previously, alcoholic beverages will only be available at Magic Kingdom table service restaurants, and only during dinner service. And in true Disney fashion, the drinks on offer at these various establishments will be highly themed, and will relate to the restaurant at which they are being served. Here's what you can expect at the four new restaurants who will be serving alcohol beginning next week: 

Tony’s Town Square Restaurant: This Italian restaurant at the front of the park will feature Italian wines and beers on offer, including a Chianti Superiore which is designated to pair with the grilled pork chop with mushroom-bean pancetta ragu and marsala reduction.

Liberty Tree Tavern: This dining location will serve beer, cider and domestic wines designed to compliment its American cuisine. 

Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen: The newest restaurant at Walt Disney world will have a more global menu that will include international beers as well as mixed drinks 

Cinderella’s Royal Table: This iconic restaurant inside Cinderella Castle will have the most limited drink menu of all, only serving champagne and sparkling wine to guests during dinner service. 

Full drink menus for all of these dining establishments are not available yet, but should be posted online at thier respective websites in the coming days.

The decision back in 2013 to add alcohol to the menu at Be Our Guest was a controversial one and it looks like in the three years since this event, the contention between fans about the presence of alcohol at this park has only grown. While some say that adding (and then expanding) the availability of alcoholic beverages to the Magic Kingdom is disrespectful to the legacy of Walt Disney, others argue that since Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom, and even Disney California Adventure on the west coast all serve alcohol, the ban on adult beverages at only the Magic Kingdom and Disneyland is superfluous and unnecessary.

What do you think? Is the addition of alcoholic beverages to the menu at these restaurants at the Magic Kingdom is a nice new option, or should the Magic Kingdom return to being an alcohol-free theme park, as it was just over 40 years?
