Question: Can I bring food into the parks?
Answer: YES! The Disney Parks are one of the few parks that I regularly visit that still allow guests to bring outside food into the parks. These items include drinks, snacks and foods that do not require heating. Exclusions include alcohol and glass containers, with the exception of small baby food jars. Security at the park gates will check your bags, but do not stress- they will not take your food! They are looking for prohibited items, such as weapons, that may disrupt the magic in the parks. Not only is bringing your own food a convenience, but, it’s also a major cost savings! You can even have snacks and drinks delivered directly to your resort by Garden Grocer!
The maximum size cooler you are able to bring in is 24″ by 15″ by 18″ and rolling coolers are not allowed. Think of bringing along a soft-sided, insulated tote type cooler. They work awesome!
Things that my family likes to bring into the parks include:
- bottled water or a water bottle
- juice boxes
- Goldfish crackers
- granola bars
- fruit snacks
- peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
You can either carry your cooler around with you all day (works great if you can put it in the basket of your stroller- if you have one!) or you can put it in a locker until you are ready to eat. I highly recommend keeping snacks on hand, especially while waiting in line, because you never know when hunger is going to strike the little ones and it can make passing the time more enjoyable!
