Disneyland to Serve Alcohol in 2019

After sixty years of being alcohol-free, Disneyland will begin serving alcohol to the general public in 2019. The alcohol is set to be served at Oga’s Cantina, a new hot spot in highly anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy Edge. "Patrons of the cantina come from across the galaxy to sample the famous concoctions created with exotic ingredients using ‘otherworldly’ methods, served in unique vessels. With choices for kids and libations for adults, the cantina will make for a great stop!" said Scott Trowbridge, executive at Walt Disney Imagineering.

The announcement has come with mixed reactions, with some families worried the drinks will infringe on the wholesome experience. However, the decision is not unprecedented—Disneyland Paris began serving alcohol 25 years ago after demand from visitors. (CNN Travel, 8.31.18)
