    Are we able to use Disney gift cards to purchase our park tickets? Can we purchase our tickets at the park instead of at Bay Lake where we are staying?Are we able to bring snacks and a cooler into the park?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Nicole!

    I am so excited for you staying at Bay Lake Towers! Its fabulous!  I am happy to answer "YES" to all of your questions.

    I love Disney Gift Cards! They are the perfect gift in my opinion!  Always the perfect size and fit! You can't go wrong!  Disney Gift Cards are accepted at lots of locations throughout the Disney World Resort and you can use them to purchase TONS of things including theme park tickets.

    You are welcome to purchase your theme park tickets at your resort Concierge, theme park ticket windows or any Guest Relations locations in the parks or Downtown Disney.  I usually pick them up whichever is most convenient or if I see a short wait time at one, I'll jump in and get my tickets.

    You can indeed bring snacks and coolers into the parks.  We always bring snacks and bottled water to save money and time waiting in line.  Just keep in mind that glass containers (except for baby food jars and perfume bottles) are not allowed in the parks.  You can bring coolers with or without wheels as long as they are not larger than 24" long x 15" wide x 18" high.

    Please feel free to visit with any other questions! We're hEAR to help!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
