    Nicki from NE Asked

    Are you able to eat and drink on transportation from resorts to the parks? I saw a post that you were able a little over a year ago, but I wanted to check this is still the case with COVID protocals. We would like to do our brekafast to go.

    Hey there, Nicki. Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. I bet you are getting so excited for your Walt Disney World vacation which is only a little less than a month away! 

    Nicki, I love a good morning breakfast sandwich from the quick-service restaurant at the Walt Disney World Resort Hotel that I am staying at to start my day too. What I would recommend for you in the mornings is to wake up just 15 minutes earlier than you were planning on. This will give you time to enjoy your coffee and breakfast before you board one of the complimentary buses to the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. Before the shutdown last summer, Guests were able to bring drinks on buses to enjoy while in transit. However, with all of the policies and procedures put into place right now, I don't think it's a good idea. Currently, to remove your face coverings to eat or drink, you do need to be physically distant from other Guests. While I know the bus is practicing physical distancing with fewer Guests and dividers up, it's still a bus. To keep you and everyone else around you safe, I would avoid eating or drinking on the complimentary transportation at this time. 

    While we are on this topic, I thought I should mention that once you are at the Walt Disney World Theme Parks eating and drinking while in line for attractions is also currently prohibited. While you are in line, face coverings must be over your mouth and nose at all times. When you are ready for a snack look for an area that is physically distant from other Guests and somewhere you can remain stationary to enjoy your food and beverage. You are also able to enjoy food and drinks at any quick-service dining location. There will be tables and chairs set up and you are more than welcome to grab one, remove your face covering and enjoy. Throughout the Walt Disney World Theme Parks, you'll also notice zones called relaxation stations. These areas are designed for Guests to be able to remove their face coverings in a safe, physically distanced area. You can eat and drink in these Relaxation Station zones but you don't have to. These areas can be used to take a break throughout the day. You can find three relaxation stations at Magic Kingdom Park located in Tomorrowland, Fantasyland and Frontierland. 2 at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park at Pizzafari on Discovery Island and then another one back in Asia. There are 3 to choose from in Epcot. One in the Norway Pavilion, one in the United Kingdom Pavilion and one located in the Future World area. At Disney's Hollywood Studios you can find two relaxation stations set up near Galaxy's Edge and inside the Animation Courtyard. Be sure to use these areas to your advantage. It can be a long day wearing a face cover. Drink plenty of water and bring some lip moisturizer with you. My lips always seem to dry out at the parks lately. 

    Nicki, I hope you have a lot of fun on your upcoming vacation to the most magical place on earth. If you have any other questions before your trip, I'd love to help. Enjoy!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
