Walt Disney World has announced that there will be four additional restaurants that will have beer and wine available inside The Magic Kingdom! The restaurants adding the booze are: Tony’s Town Square, Cinderella’s Royal Table, Liberty Tree Tavern, and Skipper Canteen.
I’m not sure how I feel about this! But, I knew that once it was introduced at Be Our Guest, it was only a matter of time before the ability to consume alcohol came to other venues within Magic Kingdom Park! And, while I am hoping that most will only consume a little to go with their meal, there is that possibility that a few may overindulge.
Personally, I am not a big drinker! Maybe one or two a year. So, at this point, I am taking a wait and see attitude about all of this. I am sure it will generate a bit of revenue! I am thinking it may bolster the guest experience at Tony’s Town Square. And, I am sure that the prices will live up to WDW standards!
But, how popular will it really be? Does the addition of alcohol at Magic Kingdom take something out of the feel of the park? One can’t help but wonder!
Walt Disney always said that things in the parks would continue to evolve and change as imagineers came up with new ideas and technologies. Well, this week saw a completed refurb and a few announcements of new enhancements at Walt Disney World.
First, Under The Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid recently completed a short refurbishment that saw enhancements to the scenes. Most notably, some added fish and the use of additional black lighting to bring out the glow of this dark ride. I can’t wait to see this one in person!
Walt Disney World announced two rides would be getting a little more space to help with crowds. These changes have been rumored for sometime, but we now know that a third track is being added to Toy Story Midway Mania at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This additional track will hopefully help shorten wait times in the stand-by line. We shall see!
And, at EPCOT, Soarin’ will have a third theater added to help swallow larger crowds. The new theater will have a new screen and an upgraded movie system. I am assuming that it will be going digital, but that hasn’t been confirmed at this point! Once this third theater opens, the other two will be upgraded with new screens and the upgraded movie system. A completion date hasn’t been released, but most guesses are in the fall of 2016.
Cinderella’s Royal Table reopened in THE Castle! I can’t wait to see the new pictures, but at this point, no word on any improvements to the menu. Stay tuned!
