If one of your dreams is to casually sip sangria at The Plaza Restaurant in Magic Kingdom, boy do we have good news for you. Six years after the Disney park first began serving alcohol at Be Our Guest, the rest of the park’s food and drink establishments are following suit. While 2016 saw a handful of other Magic Kingdom restaurants debuting a new adult beverage menu, the final few “dry” establishments are joining in on the action.
In addition to an assortment of wine, beer, and cider, the restaurants will also boast a signature cocktail — and they sound magical.
At The Crystal Palace, the go-to place to dine with Winnie the Pooh and the rest of the Hundred Acre Wood gang, diners looking for a cocktail with apple and citrus notes can now sip on a mimosa made with Domaine Ste. Michelle champagne. Meanwhile, over at The Plaza Restaurant, a new sangria will be joining the menu made up of Kenwood Sauvignon Blanc, pineapple juice, spice, and fruit. That sounds like the perfect cocktail to get our summer started.
The updated drink menus at the Magic Kingdom restaurants come on the heels of another major change in the park’s policy on adult beverages. The parks’ Disney Dining Plans recently added adult beverages to its table and counter service plans. Now those 21 and older using the plans can now order an adult beverage without having to purchase separately.
However, while alcohol is now available throughout Magic Kingdom sit-down restaurants, alcohol will not yet be sold at counter service restaurants and stands located throughout the park. Prior to Be Our Guest adding adult beverages to its menu, Magic Kingdom was a dry park, per the wishes of Walt Disney, himself.
We seriously can’t wait to sip on sangria and enjoy a mimosa the next time we dine at The Plaza Restaurant and The Crystal Palace. It seems dreams really do come true.
