    Are you allowed to bring bottled water to the park or coolers with snacks?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Pamela ~

    You are more than welcome to bring food and drinks inside the theme and water parks. We do it every trip. Not only does it save money, but it also saves time waiting in line to purchase food and beverages. There are a couple of exceptions - no glass containers (except baby food jars) and no alcoholic beverages. There is a list on the Disney website of personal items that may not be brought into the parks.

    You are also welcome to bring a cooler for your food and drinks as long as it is not larger than 24" long x 15" wide x 18" high. If you would like to store your cooler, there are lockers available for rent at all of the theme parks, water parks, and Downtown Disney.

    You will have to open all of your bags (purses, diaper bags, coolers, camera bags, etc.) when you go through security at the theme and water parks. Be sure you go ahead and have everything unzipped, opened and ready for inspection. That will speed up the process and get you into the park more quickly.

    Please feel free to visit us again with all of your planning questions. We are hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
