Disneyland adding a second place to buy alcohol in the park

The Blue Bayou will serve beer, sparkling wine and Hurricane cocktails when the New Orleans Square restaurant returns after Disneyland reopens on April 30.

Disneyland knows we all need a tall, cool drink after a year of coronavirus closures and the Blue Bayou will joyously break with the long-standing prohibition on alcohol in the Anaheim theme park by offering beer, wine, and cocktails when the restaurant reopens.

The Blue Bayou will serve beer, sparkling wine, and Hurricane cocktails when the New Orleans Square restaurant returns after Disneyland reopens.

Disneyland will reopen on April 30 after a year-long coronavirus closure mandated by COVID-19 health and safety guidelines issued by the state.

Disneyland made the decision to add alcohol to the Blue Bayou menu after the park’s food and beverage team received thousands of requests over the years from international travelers and young adult visitors for more beer, wine, and cocktail options at the restaurant.

The Blue Bayou isn’t the first place to offer alcohol in Disneyland. The exclusive Club 33 private club above the Blue Bayou has long served beer, wine and cocktails to its well-heeled members. Oga’s Cantina in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge serves a mix of interstellar cocktails. Across the esplanade, Disney California Adventure sells alcohol at many locations and allows visitors to walk around the park with their drinks.

Like at Oga’s Cantina, Blue Bayou diners will not be able to get their drinks to go. Beer, wine, and cocktails must be consumed inside the restaurant.

Booze at the Blue Bayou will break with a long-standing prohibition on alcohol in Disneyland instituted by Walt Disney — who worried about attracting the wrong crowd who frequented seedy seaside amusement parks in the 1940s and ’50s.

The addition of beer, wine, and cocktails to the Blue Bayou menu is intended to complement the New Orleans-inspired food and theme of the restaurant and elevate the culinary experience.

The alcohol menu will include a sparkling wine package served with dessert as well as a Hurricane blended cocktail made popular in New Orleans. Non-alcoholic seasonal varieties of the New Orleans Square mint julep will also be introduced.

Blue Bayou won’t return as soon as Disneyland reopens on April 30. A reopening date for the restaurant has not yet been announced.
