Finding Beer, Wine and Mixers at Disney’s Value Resorts
Not all of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels have a bar or lounge on property away from their pools. It's sad, but true. However for those that still want to kick back and enjoy an alcoholic beverage in the air conditioned comfort of your room, simply head to your resort gift shop to check out the limited selection of alcoholic beverages to be found in the shop's coolers.
At All Star Sports you should head to the main lobby building, Stadium Hall, to check out Sport Goofy Gifts & Sundries. At All Star Music it's Maestro Mickey's Gift Shop located in the main lobby building, Melody Hall. At All Star Movies make your way to Donald's Double Feature Gift Shop in the main lobby building, Cinema Hall.
- At all of these locations you will find
- Wine Coolers & Hard Lemonades
- Inexpensive Wines that vary by resort.
- Small bottles of spirits: vodka, gin, rum, tequila, etc.
- Domestic Beers from the Budweiser Company, and imported beers like Heineken.
- And Mixers such as club soda, tonic, ginger ale.
Would you like to purchase beer or wine for your room even though you're not at a Disney Value resort? All Gift Shops at DVC Resorts also offer a selection of consumables for your purchasing pleasure.
You will find that the prices are considerably higher for these bottles than you would pay for the same product at home. For instance, the single serve bottles of Beringer White Zinfandel costs $7.00 a serving, where as I can buy a regular size bottle (750ml) at home for only $5. The mark up is high because what you are really paying for is the convenience of being able to pick up a cold and frosty beer or bottle of wine right at the resort. Resort policy dictates that the purchase of alcoholic beverages is limited to two per person. On Sunday beer sales don't begin until 1pm.
Do you pick up a bottle or two in the gift shop when you're on vacation? Leave a comment and let me know!
