Magic Kingdom No Longer Dry Park Will Serve Wine Beer

This from the press event today for New Fantasyland:

Be Our Guest Restaurant will serve Wine/Beer in the evenings. Will not offer options to go.

Magic Kingdom will no longer be a "dry" park.

I think that's reasonable. We have an ADR for BOG. I will definitely enjoy the meal more (and the price) if I can enjoy a glass of wine.

I had heard this as a rumor and wondered if it was true... I must say, I'm surprised.

At least they are not allowing it outside of BOG.. I couldn't believe the drunken behavior at Epcot's World Showcase when I was there a few weeks ago.

WOW! I find this very surprising as they have always tried to mirror Disneyland in that regard. However, I suppose, it will bring in money and it is NOT Disneyland so, there you go.

Still surprises me,
Dreams

P.S. OP: Just ran a Google search to try to find information about this and came up empty. Where did you hear this? Thanks!

Weird. I've been to Epcot 7 times over the past 15 years and have never seen anyone even remotely tipsy.

I am very disappointed, but I don't know why I was surprised. Corporate Disney will do anything for a buck, and heaven knows they can rake in huge profits from overpriced beer and wine. Say so long to one of Walts longest held policies.

i agree. i find it disappointing. it didn't hurt anything (other than the bottom line) to leave one park dry.

Everyone has a different opinion on what "drunk" means. To some, it means a person who stumbles but has a beer in their hand. To others, it's very loud and obnoxious behavior while having some drinks.

Will there be people at Epcot who are drinking? Of course - this is America but World Showcase is about the countries and those countries have a very different idea of drinking. We just were merged with several European companies and it's the corporate policy to have beer available to anyone who works after a certain time of the day. We cannot do that here in America. Very different culture.
