Walt Disney World, in central Florida, is the single-most-popular resort destination in the world. Sooner or later, your spouse and kids will convince you to take them there, and that’s fine, because you will have a blast! You will probably have the time of your life.
When you visit the Magic Kingdom, there is no alcohol served or sold anywhere within the park. It has always been this way, and it will always be this way. You can buy exotic drinks and beers from around the world at EPCOT, as well as the other two parks; Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and the Disney-Hollywood Studios, but at the Magic Kingdom...AANNHH! (That was me making a loud buzzer sound!)
You can, discreetly sneak your flask into the land of Mickey Mouse, and possibly, discreetly, enjoy a nip now and then. The WEDWay People Mover, now called The Tomorrowland Transit Authority, is a great place to sit, relax, cool off, and unwind, as you have a sip of your favorite spirit.
As the hoards of people line the sides of Main Street USA, waiting for a parade, you can slip into the restroom to wash your hands, and when no one is looking, have a nip from your flask. You can even have a quick sip on the Haunted Mansion or in Pirates of the Caribbean, but be careful because they always say “no eating, drinking, smoking, or flash photography!”
Even when you visit another Disney Park that does serve alcohol, you may want to buy a Coke and add your own Captain Morgan, rather than spend a ten spot on a drink from a bartender. (Your call.)
Sometimes, after a long day of heat, sun, crowds, long lines, cranky kids, and family stress, sometimes all a parent wants is to take a walk outside around the resort hotel, and enjoy a few sips from a flask to unwind and relax!
Please drink responsibly, and if you will be driving on the Grand Prix Raceway located between Fantasyland and Tomorrowland, be careful not to drink and drive!
