Fear not wine conissouers – Walt Disney World has NOT forgotten about you! It may be a Theme Park with ample child and family friendly activities and restaurants, but there is plenty for us adults to enjoy too!
So if you find that you’re in the mood for a glass or two of vino after a long day of touring the Parks, then I suggest you head to these spots:
Magic Kingdom – Up until just recently, the Magic Kingdom was a “dry” park that didn’t serve any alcohol at all, but with the addition of the Be Our Guest restaurant at the New Fantasyland came a french inspired menu that included cornish game hen, pork chops, and ratatouillie. Along with that menu came a drink menu that includes some truly delicious red and white wines, as well as some classic French beers.
There are some great drink options on the menu, and since it’s a new (popular!) restaurant, you will definitely want to make an ADR to wine and dine here!
Hollywood Studios -Starring Roles offers Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Merlot (paired with a Butterfinger cupcake perhaps?) to sip while watching the afternoon parage, or you can head over to High Octane Refreshments located adjacent to the Studio Catering Company for some wine and sangria on the go. The Hollywood Brown Derby offers a LARGE wine list, from red to white and sparkling, there is something to please every palette here at this luxurious sit down restaurant, while Mama Melrose’s offers some delicious Italian wines to pair with their spaghetti and meatballs and other classics
Epcot – You will definitely find some amazing wines at Epcot’s World Showcase, starting with the Wine Flight at Germany’s Weinkellar – where you get to pick 3 of the 6 German varieties offered (which they change up regularly). Over in Italy, the Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar has an extensive wine list that’s sure to please everyone in your party, and if you’re looking to grab a quick glass on the go I suggest heading over to France’s Boulangerie Patisserie, where beer and wine as well as plenty of mouth watering snack options are available
WDW Resort Hotels – All Disney Deluxe and Moderate Resorts have at least 1 sit down restaurant and also offer a bar/lounge where you are sure to find wine that fits in with that Resort’s theming. If you’re staying at a Value Resort, you can grab a bottle at the food court dining area
Wine Lovers might want to plan to head to WDW during the annual Epcot Food and Wine Festival, which features new and unique offerings of food and wine as well as culinary demonstrations and special guest presentations,This year it will run from September 27-November 10.
Don’t forget you can also try out Drink Around the World Showcase if you want to mix things up a bit.
What about you – where do you like to head for a good glass of wine at Walt Disney World?
