Walt Disney World is known for being a family friendly destination, and for decades you could not find a drop of alcohol in the Magic Kingdom, unless you smuggled it in yourself. But in today’s world, theme park guests expect to be able to walk around the parks with alcoholic beverages just as they would at a sports stadium or a concert. And you can already walk around with alcohol at all but one Disney theme park (that one being the Magic Kingdom). But can you also walk around with alcohol at Disney Springs, the 120+ acre shopping and entertainment center at Walt Disney World?
Guests are allowed to walk around Disney Springs with alcohol, as long as the drink is in a plastic cup, or aluminum can or bottle. You can purchase to-go drinks from many of the full service restaurants, or at the beverage carts throughout Disney Springs.
