    Are Camelback backpacks or other hydration reservoirs allowed in the parks? If so, can they be filled with water before entering the park or do we need to wait until we're in the park?

    Hello there, Katie! Welcome to the wonderful world of planDisney! Thank you so much for taking the time to reach out and allowing us to help you plan your vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! 

    Summer is one of the prime times to visit Walt Disney World Resort! Not only are the majority of schools out of session but the weather is nice and warm. At times, though, the heat during the summer can be a bit intense so it is a very wise idea to have a plan on how to stay cooled off!

    A perfect way of staying hydrated in the summer heat is by bringing along your own water bottles! I am happy to report that this includes hydration packs that can be filled up prior to entering the parks! Guests are allowed to bring water bottles with them into the park as long as they are not in a glass bottle, do not contain any alcoholic beverages, and fit inside of a backpack no larger than 24” long x 15” wide x 18” high. One of my favorite things to do is fill up my hydration pack with half ice, half water so it stays cool throughout the day. We also sometimes fill our bottles up with an electrolyte drink to help us stay even more hydrated! 

    Another pro-tip you may want to take advantage of is making advanced dining reservations during the middle of your day! This gives you a chance to take a break while sitting down inside an air-conditioned building. This is a perfect way to re-energize yourself so you can get into even more adventures once you're done! 

    As an additional reminder, Guests will need reservations before entering any of the four theme parks! These can be made through the Disney Park Pass system as soon as you have purchased theme park tickets. It is also highly recommended that you check availability prior to purchasing tickets so you can verify that your tentative travel dates are open!

    Best of luck planning for your trip to Walt Disney World Resort later this summer! Be sure to stop back by if you have any other questions!
