Walt Disney World has four theme parks: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Each theme park offers a unique blend of attractions, shows, and dining options. Disney World is also home to two water parks Blizzard Beach(temporarily closed) and Blizzard Beach.

Guests heading to Magic Kingdom go for iconic attractions such as Pirates of the Caribbean, “it’s a small world,” Jungle Cruise, Big Thunder Mountain Railway, and many more. Guests heading to Disney’s Animal Kingdom go to see the King of the Jungle, or Guests can visit Pandora from Avatar. Guests heading to Disney’s Hollywood Studios can visit Mickey and his friends or experience Toy Story Land, Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge, and many more different lands. Last but not least, Guests heading to EPCOT can travel the World thanks to the World Showcase, and they can learn about plants and sea creatures with attractions such as Living with the Land or The Seas with Nemo and Friends and much more.

A trend that many adult Guests do when heading to EPCOT is to “drink around the world.” While Disney does not use this phrasing, there are different alcoholic beverages at each different location. Unfortunately, some Guests have been caught virally over drinking, and as as result, some are pressuring Disney to enforce restrictions on Alcohol purchases.

In a social media post, One Disney Guest thinks Disney World should enforce limits on how much alcohol one Guest should be able to purchase.

“The World Showcase used to be one of my favorite parts about Disney. Now, I barely want to go. The number of intoxicated adults is starting to become ridiculous. There was yet another incident at the Mexico pavilion (which is so difficult to even get into anymore because of everyone queueing for Cava del Tequila), but instead of someone climbing the outside of the pyramids, they were climbing around the exit show scene at Three Caballeros. It just seems like there are more and more extreme incidents of guests acting irrationally in the park while under the influence of alcohol. I don’t think Disney would ever limit alcohol sales (it’s too profitable to put restrictions on), but I’m genuinely worried for the future of the park if they can’t get this under control.”

Disney World has seen Guests ruining the magic for others or break rules due to having one to many drinks. Guests have been spotted fighting, yelling or attacking Cast Members, cooling off in fountains, climbing on forbidden objects, leaving Disney attractions and much more. Just this week, a Guest was spotted abandoning the boat at Gran Fiesta Starring The Three Caballeros.

Quick EDIT to say that this is solely in reference to the people who are doing things like climbing the Mexico Pavillon, getting in the France Fountains, getting out of ride vehicles mid-ride on Living with the Land and Three Caballeros, and physically attacking cast members. If people are drinking responsibly, then by all means, enjoy that avocado margarita.

Over-drinking can have a detrimental effect on the overall Guest experience at Walt Disney World. Intoxicated Guests may become loud, obnoxious, and disruptive, tarnishing the magical atmosphere for others. It is crucial for individuals to drink responsibly and be mindful of their alcohol consumption while enjoying Disney Parks.
