    Can we bring outside food and drink to the parks? I have a toddler that likes to constantly snack and drink.

    Dear Cipriana, thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question! I have traveled to Disneyland Resort with wee Mouseketeers like yours who love to snack and sip all day long. Keeps them busy while waiting in line, too!

    The good news is, yes – you can bring your own food and drinks! There are some limitations so it’s good to check out the permitted items list. When my kiddos were little we brought various munchies into the parks, such as fruit, chips, crackers, and sometimes sandwiches as well. Little juice boxes are allowed, as well as water bottles. In fact, the refilling stations are open now so I recommend bringing a reusable water bottle you can continue to fill throughout the day to stay hydrated. You can search within the Disneyland mobile app for "water refilling stations" to locate them easily.

    My kids were fascinated by Mickey-shaped snacks (and still are even as teenagers!) We love the Mickey-shaped Pretzels available at snack carts throughout the parks, as well as the Mickey-shaped Beignets at Mint Julep Bar. You can mobile order from most quick-service locations within the parks, which is great to have the snacks ready for you when you walk up. 

    While we're talking about ways to recharge, pack a portable charger for your phone if possible. I find that I'm using the Disneyland mobile app all day long and it helps to recharge on the go.

    Also, one more toddler tip - in case yours is currently toilet-training, they have toddler-sized toilets in the Baby Care Centers! This was a savior for me when my girls were in the training process.

    Wishing you a magical and fun day at the Happiest Place on Earth, with hearts and tummies full!
