    Can we bring in outside food to WDW? Specifically, individual-sized snacks?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Zina! You must be getting ready to set off on a magical Walt Disney World vacation! I'm counting down the days to my family's next trip too and am so excited!

    You'll be happy to know that Disney does allow guests to bring in snacks. My family and I always carry a backpack for our days in the parks, and it always has a few snacks in it. While we love to dine at the parks in the delicious and really amazingly themed restaurants, there are times when the kids need a snack... NOW! I can think of so many times when we were standing in line for an attraction and one of the kids was getting tired and cranky. A quick dig into the backpack and we had a snack that bought enough time to happily complete our wait in line for the ride before we heaed off to lunch or dinner after that attraction. Okay, let's be honest, sometimes it's me that is so hungry and I just can't wait until lunch. It's super convenient to have snacks handy! We also carry reusable water bottles, as those are handy when sudden thirst strikes while waiting in line too. However, we always set aside money to purchase some of our favorite Disney snacks too! We cannot call it a complete Disney vacation without a Mickey Ice Cream Bar or Dole Whip at least once during the trip!

    Have fun as you plan for your big adventure, Zina!
