Drunk Disney Parks Guests are not a new phenomenon, but social media really amps up their spotlight. Alcohol isn’t even served at three of the four Walt Disney World theme parks, but EPCOT’s world showcase drinking game is a big draw for adults. After a recent video showing a drunk Disney Guest hopping off of the Gran Fiesta Tour ride went viral, outraged fans called for Disney Parks to institute an alcohol ban or some kind of drink minimum.

American Disney Parks goers, it’s time you know that at Disneyland Paris, they literally serve champagne on Main Street. ON Main Street. Outside. Not even tucked away in a restaurant somewhere. In Magic Kingdom, you can’t even order a beer at sit-down dining, let alone in direct view of the castle.

That’s right. For 10 Euro, you can buy a glass of Champagne Cuvée Disneyland Paris Lanson Brut, and for an extra €3.59 you can get Double Mickey Cakes. So nice, so classy. Why, then, can Disneyland Paris have such a nice thing while American Disney Parks produce viral drunk Guest videos?

Let’s start here: A former EPCOT Cast Member, Heather, claims on Twitter that once an entire team at EPCOT frantically helped a drunk woman look for her lost child. After an hour of searching, the wasted woman remembered that she hadn’t even brought her son to the park that night.

In contrast, Disneyland Paris has offered alcohol to its Guests since it opened in 1993, as a part of the French experience.

About Lana Porter

Lana has never lost a Disney Trivia night. Maybe it’s the hundreds of times she’s been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, her love for Disney’s ’90’s era hand-animated musicals, or the fact that she’s often likened to cartoon characters, but Disney and its magic have a special place in her heart. Her favorite Disney experiences include the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, eating Mickey Bars on the PeopleMover, and crying during the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. One day she hopes to be chosen as the rebel spy on Star Tours. When Lana isn’t Park Hopping, she’s at home reading books of all topics, watching her favs on Disney+, or snuggling her two cats, which she swears are not named after Disney characters. She loves surprising people with her knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but admits she is still catching up with Star Wars. She is happy to combine her excitement for writing with her love for Disney-style storytelling and share what she can with the world!
