    Can you bring food into the parks?

    Hi Michele, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I have good news! Yes, you are allowed to bring outside food and beverages in to all parks and water parks at Walt Disney World Resort. The only rules that are asked to this is that alcohol is prohibited, and please no glass containers. Unfortunately, cast members are not allowed to store or heat foods brought in by guests, so it's best to bring items that do not require refrigeration or a microwave. Coolers, however, are allowed as long as they are under 24" long x 15" wide x 18" high.

    If you're concerned that you might not be able to enjoy any of the wonderful restaurants around Walt Disney World Resort due to dietary restrictions or religious reasons, don't fret! Delicious alternatives to numerous special dietary requests can often be accommodated at table-service restaurants and some quick-service restaurants. Requests can be noted when booking dining reservations both online and over the phone at (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463. You may also email Special.Diets@DisneyWorld.com with any specific questions you may have. 

    Baby food in glass jars is allowed, as is baby or toddler food that may require heating, which can be done in any of the Baby Care Centers.

    I hope this helped, Michele, and we'll see you real soon!
