While alcohol is prevalent at Walt Disney World’s EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom Park has been slowly introducing alcohol into the once dry Park. Now, we’re seeing the first look at new alcoholic beverages that have debuted at Magic Kingdom.
When Magic Kingdom opened in 1971, it was a dry Park, as Walt wanted it to be. No alcohol was available at any restaurant or location within the Park. In 2012, the first Magic Kingdom alcohol offering landed at Disney’s new Fantasyland restaurant, Be Our Guest.
Fast forward to today, where alcohol at Magic Kingdom is readily available at all table-service restaurants at the Disney Park, including Be Our Guest Restaurant, Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen, The Plaza Restaurant, The Crystal Palace, Tony’s Town Square Restaurant, Liberty Tree Tavern, Cinderella’s Royal Table, and The Diamond Horseshoe.
Unlike the other Walt Disney World Resort Parks, Magic Kingdom still does not off alcohol at walk-up kiosks or quick-service restaurants. Guests must dine at a table-service restaurant to enjoy a sip or two of alcoholic beverages, except for the bountiful supply of beer and wine available at the Fireworks Dessert Party.
Three Magic Kingdom restaurants, including Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen, Liberty Tree Tavern, and The Diamond Horseshoe, have debuted new alcohol selections.
Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen now offers both the Jungle Bird Cocktail and the Golden Haze Margarita. The Jungle Bird Cocktail features Gosling Black Rum, Campari, cane syrup, and pineapple and lime juices. The Golden Haze Margarita contains Teremana Blanco Tequila, Grand Marnier, agave syrup, lime juice, and smoked chili bitters.

Over at Liberty Tree Tavern and The Diamond Horseshoe, you’ll find the Gold Rush, which is a new cocktail with Elijah Craig Bourbon, lemon juice, and honey garnished with crystallized ginger. Guests can also enjoy the Magical Beacon Cocktail as a special offering to celebrate the 50th Anniversary Celebration featuring Empress 1908 Gin, Bols Blue Curaçao, Minute Maid Premium Lemonade, almond orgeat, lemon, hibiscus grenadine, and souvenir glow cube.
