    Can you bring in a cooler to the parks at Disney world and if so is there a size restriction?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jaime!

    Hey, there!  Hi, there!  Ho, there!  Your cooler is as welcome as can be, as long as it is fits the guidelines of the Walt Disney World Resort property rules.  Coolers, with or without wheels, cannot be larger than 24 inches long by 15 inches wide and 18 inches tall.  You must use reusable ice packs to keep your goodies cool throughout your visit, as dry ice and loose ice are not permitted.

    Bringing your own snacks to the park can be a great way to keep your vacation on budget.  But even if you plan to bring your own food, be sure to save room for a few of those iconic treats like a DOLE Whip from the Sunshine Tree Terrace or a Mickey ice cream bar.  These amazing frozen snacks are all part of the experience of visiting the house of mouse!  My family also likes to enjoy popcorn in each park.  Once we smell that buttery goodness we have to fill up our collectible popcorn bucket!

    Use your My Disney Experience Mobile App while you are in the parks to find the locations of all your favorite treats.

    Pop back over to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any additional questions about your upcoming vacation!

    See ya real soon! Angie
