When thinking of your favorite Walt Disney World cocktail, you may not think of Magic Kingdom. In fact, of all the Walt Disney World Parks, Magic Kingdom was the last to begin serving alcohol in the Park. The Walt Disney Company originally did not plan on Magic Kingdom offering alcohol, but the change brought alcohol to the Park in 2012.
Since 2012, the Magic Kingdom has had stricter policies about serving alcohol than the other Disney Parks. At Magic Kingdom, alcohol is only served at Table Service restaurants, and Guests cannot take drinks with alcohol outside of the restaurant. Due to these guidelines, you need to know where to go to find a delicious cocktail in Magic Kingdom. Today, we will look at the best cocktails in Magic Kingdom and where to find them!
Little Italy Cocktail at Tony’s Town Square Restaurant
We’ll start our tour around the Magic Kingdom on Main Street, U.S.A., at Tony’s Town Square Restaurant. While dining at Tony’s Town Square Restaurant, one of our favorite cocktails is the Little Italy. The Little Italy is made with Knob Creek Rye Whiskey, Amaro Averna Siciliano Liqueur, and Martini & Rossi Sweet Vermouth garnished with Luxardo Cherries. This is the perfect elegant cocktail to add to your lunch or dinner at Tony’s.
The Plaza Mimosa at The Plaza Restaurant
Continuing down Main Street, U.S.A., our next stop is The Plaza Restaurant, located at the end of the street, just before Cinderella Castle. We recommend The Plaza Mimosa as a delicious specialty cocktail at this elegant dining location. The Plaza Mimosa is made with Domaine Ste. Michelle Sparkling Wine blended with Orange Juice.
Last Word at The Crystal Palace
If we hop over to the other side of Main Street, U.S.A., we’ll reach our next stop on the cocktail tour, The Crystal Palace. The Crystal Palace offers a buffet-style meal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In addition to the buffet offerings, the restaurant offers several cocktails for an additional charge. We love the Last Word cocktail that features Fords Gin, Green Chartreuse Liqueur, Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, and lime juice garnished with Luxardo Cherries.
The Jungle Bird at Skipper Canteen
Let’s take a left and head towards Adventureland for our next restaurant, Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen. Skipper Canteen offers unique and popular menu options, including specialty cocktails that are straight out of the jungle. There’s more than one excellent cocktail option on this menu, but if we have to pick just one, we recommend the Jungle Bird. The Jungle Bird combines Gosling Black Seal Rum, Campari Liqueur, and Cane Syrup with Pineapple and lime juices to create a delicious cocktail.
House-made Liberty Sangria at The Diamond Horseshoe
If we turn right through Frontierland and continue into Liberty Square, we’ll stop at The Diamond Horseshoe for our next cocktail. The Diamond Horseshoe and Liberty Tree Tavern share a menu, allowing a bonus cocktail recommendation from their menu. Our first recommendation is the House-made Liberty Sangria. This sangria can be made with your choice of red or white wine blended with juice, spices, and fruit.
The Gold Rush at Liberty Tree Tavern
If we head next door to Liberty Tree Tavern, we find the same menu in a different setting. Both restaurants offer a family-style meal brought to your table with specialty cocktails available for an additional cost. At Liberty Tree Tavern, we recommend trying The Gold Rush. This cocktail includes Elijah Craig 12yr Kentucky Straight Bourbon, lemon juice, and honey garnished with crystallized ginger.
The Bloody Mary at Be Our Guest
Journeying to Fantasyland, Be Our Guest Restaurant offers an assortment of signature wine, beer, and specialty cocktails, including the Bloody Mary. This cocktail features Tito’s Handmade Vodka, and Bloody Mary Mix garnished with Cucumber, Grape Tomato, and Green Olive.
The Castle Flight at Cinderella’s Royal Table
We conclude our tour on the other side of Fantasyland, in Cinderella Castle, where you’ll find Cinderella’s Royal Table. This iconic restaurant features The Castle Flight. This flight includes a Mimosa with Paul Cheneau Lady of Spain Cava and Minute Maid Orange Juice, a Canella Bellini Sparkling Peach Cocktail, and an Opici Family Selection Sangria. This flight is not included in the price of your meal at Cinderella’s Royal Table but is a fun cocktail option for a small upgrade.
