    Can I bring my own water to the park and a mini cooler. With snacks

    Hi there, Sugeil!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Can you believe that in just a few days you will be at Walt Disney World Resort making some magical memories?!?!  I am so excited for you and it sure makes me wish I was headed that way soon!  Be sure to have a ginormous Mickey Mouse-shaped Rice Krispie treat for me…my fav!!

    Thanks for bringing your fantastic question to the panel and simply put…yes, you can bring in a small cooler and snacks with you!  I always recommend reviewing the park rules for all specifications, but as long as your cooler DOES NOT EXCEED 24 inches long x 15 inches wide x 18 inches high it will not be a problem.  Additionally, no loose ice can be put in the cooler, so I recommend using reusable ice packs to keep any items cool.  Also, be advised that you will likely need to have it opened and checked upon entry at the theme parks, but as long as you are aware of these things, go for it!  We always carry in snacks with us because snacks make anyone happy when it gets hot or lines get long!  And I am not only referring to my boys…I have definitely been known to use a snack to appease my husband or myself when hunger strikes!  Now, with a wide variety of delicious and tempting treats available throughout the theme parks, it’s definitely easy to find something to snack on, but often having something for instant gratification is necessary…so packed snacks to the rescue!

    Hopefully you’ve got your FastPass+ selections made, have your plan in mind and are ready to GO!  You will certainly want to have the My Disney Experience Mobile app downloaded to have access to your scheduled FastPass+ selections as well as updated wait times, the schedule of entertainment and shows and much more!

    Wishing you the most magical of vacations, Sugeil!
