Starting this month, guests of the Magic Kingdom can sit back and enjoy the Fireworks Dessert Party with an alcoholic beverage in hand.

Yes, along with the other treats and beverages listed, such as chocolate-dipped strawberries, and sparkling cider, Walt Disney World included the following:

Beginning February 1, 2020, Guests ages 21 and over can also choose from a fine selection of beer and wine. 

There is no official beer or wine list posted yet on Walt Disney World’s site. The website also suggests that no alcoholic beverages will be allowed outside of the designated Tomorrowland Terrace area.

Major Change in Magic Kingdom Policy

This may not appear to be news to most people. But for those who know, the Magic Kingdom remains the only Theme Park on Walt Disney World property that continues to prohibit the distribution of alcohol. Before the policy change for the Dessert Parties, the only alcoholic beverages you could find in the Magic Kingdom was wine offered with dinner at Be Our Guest. Now it appears the park is pushing back on the prohibition once more, allowing guests to sip on beer or wine while enjoying the majestic Happily Ever After fireworks display.

After-Fireworks Dessert Party, Anyone?

Yes, if you would like, the party can continue after the fireworks are over.

According to Walt Disney World’s website:

First, join us at Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant starting 60 minutes prior to Happily Ever After—the most spectacular fireworks showcase in Magic Kingdom history. As showtime nears, Cast Members will escort you to a prime location in the Plaza Garden for priority fireworks viewing.
