    Can we bring food into the Park? What do we do with our backpack while on rides? Do you purchase the MaxPass on the day you are going to the park?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Christian! 

    Zip-a-dee-doo-dah! It’s almost time for your visit to the Disneyland Resort. Thanks for the chance to help with your planning. 

    Yes, you may bring outside food and beverages into the theme parks of the Disneyland Resort. We like to bring small snacks, such as fruit snacks and granola bars, to munch on when we are in lines. We also like to pick up fresh popcorn from time to time as well. Of course, we love enjoying delicious meals from one of our favorite Disneyland Resort restaurants. One of our favorites in Disneyland Park is Carnation Cafe. In Disney California Adventure Park, we often go to Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta. Note that many dining locations can also accommodate common allergies and other special dietary needs.

    When I bring a backpack with me, I usually take it with me when riding the attractions, even thrill rides like Space Mountain, Radiator Springs Racers, and Incredicoaster. Though it can be a bit of a tight squeeze on certain attractions, like Goofy’s Sky School. If you would rather not carry your backpack the entire time, locker rentals are available on Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland Park and on Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure Park. There are also lockers in the Esplanade just outside the parks. When you experience the wild adventure of Grizzly River Run, you may take advantage of complimentary short-term lockers just outside the attraction.

    Adding Disney MaxPass to your theme park tickets is a great way to help maximize your time while at the Disneyland Resort. If your tickets don’t already come with MaxPass included, you may purchase it with a few taps from within the Disneyland app. After your tickets have been activated for the day at the turnstile, link your tickets into the app and tap the ‘+’ symbol at the bottom of the screen to bring up the “Get FASTPASS with Disney MaxPass” button. The app will guide you through purchasing MaxPass and making your first Disney FASTPASS selection.

    I hope you have a magical time at the Disneyland Resort, Christian!
