PHOTOS: Draft Beer Now Available For the First Time at The Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

A few weeks ago, The Crystal Palace and The Plaza Restaurant added numerous choices for alcohol to their menu, including beers and wines. Prior to this, every other table service restaurant in the kingdom already offered alcoholic beverages, and these two were the final ones to get the cans and bottles approach. Everything seemed to be settling down with the alcohol choices in Magic Kingdom until now.

On May 23rd, 2018, The Diamond Horseshoe premiered a brand new menu for lunch and dinner. You can read our full review here. This menu change prompted the addition of a draft beer system serving up three different beers.

  • Michelob Ultra – $7.00
  • Samuel Adams Seasonal – $8.25
  • Yuengling Lager – $7.00

The Samuel Adams Seasonal is available on draft right next door at Liberty Tree Tavern as well.

This draft system marks the first time that a Magic Kingdom restaurant has installed one; each restaurant before resorted to using cans and bottles in lieu of the draft system. Will other locations install drafts next? “Which other locations are already in the process of installing them?”, might be a better question. We’ll certainly find out soon. Draft beer is historically cheaper to the business and consumer, but it might be kind of weird to see kegs being rolled around down in the Utilidor.

  • I’m a beer and wine drinker but I think this is the further demise of Walt Disney World as they put huge profits of alcohol sales over creating a super kid first environment. Kids don’t drink alcohol. Though with the increasing lines, and cut backs at Disney, they should let them!

    • Why does WDW have to be a “super kid first” environment?? MANY adults go to WDW without kids. Serving alcohol at dinner/lunch locations is not the demise of WDW. Next time you go you won’t even notice a difference. People are making WAYYYYY too big of deal about this.

    • Have you ever seen a drunk at any of the other 3 parks? This is much needed. MK is my least favorite park, because I’m not a toddler and I can’t have a drink in between chasing mine around.

  • This is just terrible. On certain evenings Epcot becomes quite seedy with an over abundance of drunken louts. Obviously Disney is generating enormous profits from the sale of alcohol at the cost of guests and families safety. It’s only a matter of time before the Magic Kingdom follows the unfortunate example of Epcot.

    • “at the cost of guests and families safety”?? Could you please provide actual documented examples of any times where a guest or a families safety was compromised? I have heard of people being a little too loud and appearing intoxicated, but I have never heard a story of a guest being injured from one of those people.

      • Let the teetotaling temperance folks scream at the sky and cry in their milk. I am sure that Disney knows that their cries of “the drunks will try to kill our children” are as ridiculous as they sound. Walt Disney World has the blessing of size. If a parent witnesses a very rare out of control person (drunk? mentally ill? medical emergency?) they should move their little snowflakes to a safe area until the very well trained and equipped security team removes said person. 99.99% of those that want to imbibe are the moms and dads that want a beer with their dinner. Not many people can afford to get sloppy drunk on $6.50 12oz cans of Miller Lite.
