The times they are a changin…Magic Kingdom has always been known as the only ‘dry’ theme park at Disney World until now. The new Be Our Guest restaurant that will be opening in Magic Kingdom’s new Fantasyland will be serving beer and wine! This has been a hot topic with many Disney fans. Walt Disney himself did not want alcohol served in Disney Land and wanted to keep it a ‘family friendly’ atmosphere which has many people questioning the latest decision to serve beer and wine at the new Be Our Guest.
Be Our Guest restaurant is a french themed restaurant and according to the beverage director, Stuart McGuire, the decision was made “As part of the overall theming, we wanted to offer wine that enhances the guest experience and complements the French-inspired cuisine.” Guests can now purchase the leading French beer, Kronenbourg 1664 along with Belgian beer.
The new decision to offer beer and wine (available by the glass with the prices starting at $8 per glass ranging all the way up to $17 per glass) has sparked many questions. Some Disney fans are wondering if this will eventually open up other doors for Disney to serve alcohol throughout Magic Kingdom? Or possibly change the family friendly atmosphere. Many people think that the decision to offer beer and wine (also available by the bottle at prices ranging from $35 to a whopping $75) is just another way for Disney to make more money.
What are your thoughts on this? We would like to hear from our reader’s. Will you be purchasing a glass of wine or a beer with your meal at Be Our Guest?
