    Yes, if it is in your checked luggage. Just watch the weight. Over 50 lbs. and extra charge & now most are charging for second bag.

    I don't think there are any restrictions on liquids in your checked baggage, but every airline is different, so you'll want to check. However ... I don't know that I'd want to pack liquor or drinks in my suitcase, considering how those cases get tossed around. You'll get to your destination and your entire suitcase could be soaking wet and smelling of scotch.

    Wouldn't it be easier to just hit a liquor store once you've landed?

    actually (probably due to combustibility) there are limitations placed on alcohol in checked baggage.

    from http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/assistant/editorial_1189.shtm

    alcohol is sold on property at resorts. everything from beer to JD.

    Depending on where you're staying, there are liquor stores within walking distance.

    An easy way to get around the possible bottle breakage is to stock up on the mini bottles (you can now get mini bottles of decent wine as well as liquor) and stuff each bottle in a roll of your socks or down into your shoes (in checked luggage). At $2-$3 per bottle, they are obviously more expensive than just taking down normal-sized bottles, but I would wager they are comparable to the price of Disney-taxed alcohol, and you can be sure you have what you want. Either way have a good time and drink up! :drinking1

    I don't think there is a liquor store within walking distance of ASMo, but there is a bar by the pool.

    There are no liquor stores within walking distance of the All-Stars, but all Disney resorts have a decent selection of wine, beer, and liquor in their gift shops. If they don't have what you want, you can always get a cab to a liquor store. I wouldn't bother taking it on the plane.

    Carol's Time Tested method for packing booze!

    1. Wrap booze in plastic drycleaing bag
    2. Put that in a zip lock baggie
    3. Put bundle from 2 in ANOTHER zip lock
    4. Wrap in clothing/towel
    5. Put in the MIDDLE of a FULL suitcase. Surrounded on all four sides by clothing. Movement is the enemy.

    So far so good! Never even a drop leaked on numerous trips. (Generally it's a bottle of wine I found in some exoctic place LOL!)

    United does NOT permit alcohol in checked luggage unless packed following specific instructions on their website, including a special permitted container. There are reports of checked luggage being rejected at US airports unless the passenger removes the alcohol.

    I have been the recipient of having my luggage soaked and my clothes impermeated with the odour of alcohol thanks to careless travellers, so unless one is packing something very unsusual I request that you consider buying your beverages at your destination.
