    Are aerosol cans of sunscreen allowed in the WDW Theme Parks?

    Hello there, Deborah! Welcome to the Disney Park Moms Panel! Thanks for stopping by and allowing us to help you plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! 

    I don’t know about you but I love all the Florida sunshine I get to experience when visiting Walt Disney World Resort. Whether I am lounging by the pool or visiting one of the theme parks, I love spending time out and about in the sun. Unfortunately, the Florida sunshine does not love my fair complexion! I have to be very aware of my sun exposure and constantly reapplying sunscreen during my own visits! 

    You’ll be happy to know that aerosol cans of sunscreen are allowed inside the theme parks and water parks! This type of sunscreen just so happens to be my personal favorite so I have brought cans into the parks on multiple occasions! I would also recommend looking through the Walt Disney World Resort Park Rules. This list offers a comprehensive explanation of allowed and prohibited items both inside and outside of the parks!

    If you’re like me and need a bit of time to recover from the sun and cool off, I would highly recommend making a list of “chill” attractions that you can enjoy in each park! I always have this list set aside just in case I need to take a quick breather away from the sun! One of my personal favorites has to be The Hall of Presidents in Magic Kingdom. This attraction takes place in a nice and cool auditorium but also provides a very engaging review of all 44 United States Presidents!

    Hopefully, these tips will help you stay cool and beat the heat during your upcoming vacation!
