Disney's Magic Kingdom will lift ban on alcohol

The park had stood alone among Disney's four theme parks for leaving wine and beer off the menus, so it was notable during this week's sneak preview to the media of the newly-revamped Fantasyland in Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom that the forthcoming restaurant called "Be Our Guest," will serve French wine, the French beer Kronenbourg 1664 and Belgian beers when it opens Nov. 19.

"As part of the overall theming, we wanted to offer wine that enhances the guest experience and complements the French-inspired cuisine," beverage director Stuart McGuire told the Disney Parks Blog.

Previews of the new Fantasyland, begin in November, prior to its grand opening on Dec. 6.

Beer and wine has been served for years at Disney Studios, Animal Kingdom, and Epcot. But the Magic Kingdom has always stood out for not allowing it. What do you think of this change?
