Have you ever caught yourself asking, “Where can I get a drink in the Magic Kingdom at Disney World?” There are now eight restaurants serving alcohol in the Magic Kingdom.
Disney is now serving alcohol at every table service restaurant in the Magic Kingdom. Disney has expanded their alcohol service in Magic Kingdom, again.
Which Restaurants Serve Alcohol in the Magic Kingdom?
ALL (full) table service restaurants now serve alcohol in the Magic Kingdom. This is new!

Be Our Guest Restaurant
The Crystal Palace
The Diamond Horseshoe

Drinking in the Magic Kingdom
If you find you would like a drink while visiting the Magic Kingdom, eight restaurants offer drinks that fit the theme of the location.
For example, at Cinderella’s Royal Table, wine, sparkling wine, champagne, a limited beer selection, and few specialty drinks are served.
Advanced Dining Reservations are recommended for all of these restaurants – especially Cinderella’s Royal Table and Be Our Guest Restaurant. Those are some of the hardest Disney Advanced Dining Reservations to get.
The Crystal Palace can be difficult, but it is not quite as difficult as Be Our Guest or dining in the castle itself at Cinderella’s Royal Table.
If you plan ahead, your hard work and planning will be definitely be rewarded by a refreshing adult libation in the park. 😉
Some of the other restaurants are easier to get reservations at, meaning they don’t need to be booked six months in advance. This is good news for those deciding that they would really like to grab a drink at the (almost) last minute.
At a recent trip to Magic Kingdom, I was able to book Jungle Navigation Company Limited Skipper Canteen 45 minutes out.
For last minute plans for drinking in the Magic Kingdom, we recommend searching on the My Disney Experience app or the Disney World website for available dining reservations at:
- Tony’s Town Square Restaurant
- Liberty Tree Tavern
- Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen
- The Plaza Restaurant
- The Diamond Horseshoe

It includes information on every Magic Kingdom restaurant.
Beer, wine, and champagne are the only drinks served in the Magic Kingdom. For other kinds of drinks, such as cocktails with hard liquor, you will need to go outside the park.

If you cannot get a reservation for a restaurant that allows drinking in the Magic Kingdom, there is always the option of jumping on the monorail and grabbing a drink at the Contemporary, the Polynesian, or the Grand Floridian.
You can take a quick trip out of the park and head back in if you are so inclined.
The Contemporary and the Polynesian are the quickest. Mizner’s Lounge at the Grand Floridian is a nice upscale place to relax and take a break from the park.
Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto at the Polynesian is a fan favorite as well.
For speed, we recommend a quick drink at either the Contemporary Resort’s Outer Rim Lounge at the or the Polynesian’s Tambu Lounge (outside O’hana) if you are trying to get back to the park quickly. Both are located very close to the monorail.

History of Alcohol in the Magic Kingdom
Initially, Walt Disney wanted Magic Kingdom to be a totally dry park. For 41 years, that was the case. Walt himself was a teetotaler, meaning he did not drink alcohol at all.
In 2012, Be Our Guest Restaurant began serving alcohol with dinner. In December 2016, Disney expanded it’s alcohol offering to Tony’s Town Square Restaurant, Liberty Tree Tavern, Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen, and Cinderella’s Royal Table .
In 2018, Disney decided to sell alcohol at all of its sit-down (table service) restaurants in the Magic Kingdom. This extended service to The Plaza Restaurant, The Crystal Palace, and the Diamond Horseshoe.
