    Am I allowed to bring in my baby’s food in a backpack?

    Hi Hailey!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you so much for bringing this great Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question to us hEAR.

    Yes, you are absolutely allowed to bring outside food and beverages in to Disney's four Theme and two Water Parks. There is currently no restriction on the size or type of bag you must carry, like how some sporting or concert venues require see-through bags under certain dimensions. And actually, when looking at the Rules & Regulations, baby food jars are the only type of glass containers allowed in Disney's parks.

    You're also allowed to bring as much as you or your Mouseketeer needs for the day in with your group, although do note that you will be required to go through a bag check every time you plan to enter a Disney Park. I've found it's easier to have one or two smaller bags that can easily be dug through than one really big bag that is packed just right.

    But don't feel like you need to pack everything as each Disney Theme Park has a Baby Care Center and all Disney Resort Hotel shops have for purchase items like toddler meals, Huggies brand diapers, baby food, even over-the-counter medicines and electrolyte enhanced juice drinks. The selection at both is limited flavor and brand wise, but should you need something more specific, you can always send a box of baby supplies ahead of your arrival or place a last-minute delivery order to your Disney Resort Hotel. There is a small package delivery fee to ship an item to yourself, but it's better than having to check a separate bag or hiring a taxi to run to the store!

    I hope this helped to plan your upcoming Disney Days, Hailey, and if you have any more questions, We're All Ears!
