More Magic Kingdom restaurants add alcohol to their menus
Published On: 05-18-2018 in Category: alcohol
Alcohol would now be available rather easily at The Disney World’s Magic Kingdom with two more restaurants getting permission to serve alcoholic beverages to their guests over the age of 21. As per reports, the permission might have been granted to improve the profit earning capability of the two diners – The Crystal Palace and The Plaza Restaurant.
The stature of a “dry park” was lost when Magic Kingdom first allowed alcohol on the menu of Be Our Guest Restaurant in 2012 at the dinner time. In 2016, four other restaurants – Cinderella’s Royal Table, Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen, Liberty Tree Tavern, and Tony’s Town Square Restaurant – joined the league of alcohol-serving restaurants in Magic Kingdom, a theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando.
While people who enjoy drinking might be excited about the latest decision, more and more restaurants serving alcohol at the theme park is a setback for the city as it is already fighting a tough battle against the problem of alcohol abuse. It is common to spot adults with alcohol use disorder (AUD) across the state of Florida, but unfortunately the trend is catching up with the students of high school and colleges.
According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), around 16 percent of high school students in Florida admit that they drank alcohol for the first time before attaining the age of 13. Around 9 percent students said that they drove a car or other vehicle after drinking alcohol at least once. This increases their risk of facing fatal consequences.
Stringent laws to help curb alcohol abuse
Florida has several laws that limit the sale and purchase of alcohol in the state, and hence, the scope of its abuse. For instance, like most of the states, driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 percent or more is considered as illegal in Florida. An individual’s driving license can be cancelled for one year if he/she rejects to take the chemical test in the state for the first time and for 18 months in a similar incident that occurs for the second or third time.
While the legal age to drink alcohol in Florida is 21 years, exposing kids to the addictive substance can encourage them to try it out of curiosity. This may increase their risk of indulging in an illicit behavior as well as intensify their chances of developing dangerous or life-threatening conditions. It is, therefore, important to ensure that such dangerous substances are kept out of their reach so that they do not fall into the trap of alcohol addiction.
