  • [Idea] Alcohol in Disneyland (the "What If" scenario)

    Let me emphasize that this will probably never happen in a few hundred years but "What If" TDA gave the go-ahead for one, and only one, venue in Disneyland Park to serve alcoholic beverages to the general public and assigned you to do the planning and concept for it. What would you propose and why?

    TDA's explicit guidelines:

    1. Alcohol must be served in a permanent venue in either a new or existing building, it cannot be served from a portable vending cart.

    2. The venue must fit the theming of the land that it is in as well as its nearby surroundings (nearby attractions, restaraunts, landmarks?). This includes the exterior, interior, and cast member theme.

    3. The venue must be inside Disneyland Park.


    Have fun!!!

    A collectible Matterhorn stein filled with some delightful micro-brew made inside the park would be epic! If there was only one location and it was a collectible mug (with a lid to keep the empty mug odors out of your face) it just might work!

    And nobody is gonna get $%!7 faced at $15 a pint!

            HAHA, nice!! Maybe they could serve it out of the turkey leg cottage across the way from the Matterhorn, and re-theme the area a little bit to include a small stage and some german dancers.

                Actually, I think the Golden Horseshoe would be the one venue I would pick.

                Redo the bar area to no longer serve food (if you want food, buy it outside and bring it in yourself). It is a large venue, and the entertainment offered is more for adults than kids (even though it is good for all ages). Only one entrance/exit, so you can have a CM watching over the doors to make sure nobody walks out of the Saloon with a beer in their hand.

                It works at Knott's and the Calico Saloon.

                I think I also would go with the Knott's system of issuing wristbands to those who want a drink. You show your ID proving your 21 or older, and have your ID (a legal requirement, even if you are a senior citizen).

                This allows everyone to sit at the same table, regardless of age, and that security can easily verify that only those who are supposed to be drinking alcoholic beverages are partaking.

                    That's right they do that and if it works at knotts it would work at disney.

                      Take out the Dream Suite and put in a full bar! Make it a nice jazz lounge upstairs and out of the way.

                        Personally I would like to see an Adventurer's Club... and please no neon yellow plastic cups... serve it in actual glasses/mugs etc.

                        The Golden Horseshoe would be a perfect location.

                        As much as I would love a stein, I would hate to have a location in Fantasyland specifically because of the family demographic.

                          Anything to get Disney more money to built attractions.
                          Happy Halloween!!!
