Should Disney’s Magic Kingdom Serve Alcohol?

For many visitors, the Happiest Place on Earth is about to get even happier. Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom in Orlando, FL has been a worldwide destination for more than 40 years. Now, for the first time, wine and beer will be served there — and the debate has officially begun.

According to the New Jersey Newsroom, customer service cards were showing many guests in favor of imbibing at Be Our Guest, the soon-to-be-opened French-themed restaurant at Magic Kingdom’s Fantasyland. And so, for now, alcohol will be served at the new restaurants during dinner hours only — and one glass will range from $8 to $17(!)

Many Disney lovers are happy with the news, think wine and beer pairs well with a French-themed restaurant and/or feel it’s a modern and “of-the-times” step for the company. Others, however, are saddened with the idea of alcohol being served at Disneyworld, because Walt Disney himself didn’t want it served there, and/or it’s inappropriate “in a park that’s geared toward children” and “‘keeping it a dry park enforces the wholesomeness of being a child.'” (The Examiner)
