    Hi! Are backpack cooler chairs allowed in the parks?  The size is 16x10x7 which is less than 24x15x18. I have a bad back and need to rest periodically while standing in lines. Thanks

    Hi Stephanie!  Disney has a very strict policy with respect to what guest can and cannot bring into the parks.  The guidelines are clearly put into place to maintain the safety of all guests attending Disney Parks.  According to guest services, no foldable chair of any kind will be allowed in the parks.  Despite it being back pack sized, its still considered a chair.  Perhaps you might want to consider getting a Guest Assistance Card.  It will allow you to wait in a less crowded line, and will let the CM's at each attraction that you need some assistance.  

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!

Hi there! The Disney Parks have been a part of my life since I was a little girl. Introducing my children, husband, and family to all the magic that Walt Disney World can offer has led to countless moments with Mickey and Friends, Disney Vacation Club membership and fun on the high seas with Disney Cruise Lines! Our vacations are usually centered around a visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth, and I am super excited to help you plan and create magical moments for you and your families!
