Whether you agree with it or not, Disney Parks and Disney Cruise Line all sell guests 21 and older adult beverages. Tonight we are going to explain what is required for you to buy an alcoholic beverage at the Disney Parks and on Disney Cruise Ships and what isn’t allowed when it comes to adult beverages.
In the United States, purchasing an alcoholic drink requires proof of being 21 years of age or older, which must be verified through an acceptable photo ID. It’s worth noting that bringing alcohol into the park is not permitted as per park policy. Furthermore, any drinks purchased within the parks or nearby shopping areas like Disney Springs and Downtown Disney should be consumed on the property. It’s also essential to abide by state law and not provide access to alcoholic beverages to individuals under the age of 21, as it is illegal. Such actions could result in trouble with the parks and local law enforcement, which can lead to legal consequences. For those who require assistance with substance abuse, professional help from a facility like the magnolia recovery center can provide guidance and support toward recovery.
The experts from Cornerstone Healing Center support this initiative since it reduces the number of people getting addicted to alcohol easily here because we all know that socialization in these kind of places tempts new people to try them for the first time.
Disney Travel recently sent out a reminder of the alcohol policy at Walt Disney World and Disneyland, reinforcing the requirement for guests to have their photo ID with them when purchasing alcoholic beverages. The reminder is aimed at tackling the misconception held by many guests that their MagicBand is sufficient for age verification. It is crucial to note that, to purchase alcohol in the parks, guests must be 21 years old and have the proper identification. This information is especially important for those who may require PHP addiction treatment and should avoid alcohol consumption altogether.
Below is the Disney Travel announcement:
” Are your Clients headed to Walt Disney World Resort? Be sure to remind them to bring the proper identification they’ll need during their stay. Please note the following ID requirements required to purchase alcoholic beverages at any establishment throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.
- Alcohol will not be served to anyone who does not present valid identification upon request.
- Visitors from outside the United States are required to present both a valid passport and another form of government-issued photo identification from their country of origin. Foreign driver’s licenses or ID cards are not acceptable by themselves.
The following forms of ID will be accepted as proof of age:
- U.S. state driver’s license (includes U.S. territories – Puerto Rico, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa)
- U.S. state ID (includes U.S. territories)
- U.S. military ID
- Original passport
- Copy of passport (either on paper or captured on a mobile device), along with a government photo ID that verifies the person and birth date show on the copy
- NEXUS card issued by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (Canadian Guests only)“
Disney Cruise Line
Like at the Disney Parks, guests of Disney Cruise Line must be 21 years old or older to purchase and consume alcoholic beverages on most cruises. There is one exception to that rule, guests on roundtrip cruises that depart from any European country that has a lower drinking age parents or guardians may sign a Beverage Consent Form that allows their 18- to 20-year-old children to consume alcoholic beverages while in the adult’s presence.
Currently guests that are 21 years old and older may carry select alcoholic beverages onto Disney Cruise ships in their carry-on luggage on cruises departing the U.S. and Canada. Some exclusions may occur on European departures so guests should consult their cruise’s specific information on this topic when sailing from Europe.
Please note that the beer and wine you bring onto the ship is to only be consumed in your cabin unless you are paying the corkage fee, which allows you to consume your carried on beverage at select dining locations. And yes I do realize people ignore this rule, but that doesn’t make it what they are doing right. Also, please remember if you purchase liquor in port you will turn it in to Disney Cruise Line when boarding the ship and they will store it until debarkation day for you, but you can purchase and bring wine and beer while in port and take it back to you cabin as long as it meets Disney Cruise Line’s rules. Per Disney Cruise Line the following is what can be brought onto the ship.
“Disney Cruise Line Guests 21 years and older may bring a maximum of 2 bottles of unopened wine or champagne (no larger than 750 ml) or 6 beers (no larger than 12 ounces) on board at the beginning of the voyage and at each port of call. These beverages must be packed in carry-on (not checked) bags or luggage.
Guests wishing to consume wine or champagne that they have brought on board in one of the dining rooms will be charged a corking fee of $25.00 per bottle.
- Any alcohol packed in checked luggage will be removed and stored until the end of the cruise.
- All alcohol brought onboard must be in an original unopened container. Partially used bottles and those in which the seal has been broken will be destroyed and no compensation will be offered.
- Any wine or champagne in excess of 2 bottles or beer in excess of 6 beers will be stored until the end of the cruise.
- Bringing liquors and spirits (including powdered alcohol) on board is prohibited. These items will be stored until the end of the cruise.
- Guest MUST retrieve any stored alcohol at the end of the cruise. Items not retrieved will be destroyed and no compensation will be offered.
- Alcohol brought on board may not be consumed in any lounge or public area.”
Please remember when consuming adult beverages in the Disney Parks or while on a Disney Cruise Line Ship to pay attention to how much you are consuming, to drink water and eat, and to please don’t drink and drive! #dontbethatguy
