    Are children metal utensils permitted at World Disney World Parks?

    Hello Trudy! Welcome to planDisney, and thanks for stopping by to see us.

    I can tell you’ll be visiting Walt Disney World with a little one soon and would like to know which essentials you can bring along to make their visit as comfortable as possible! Having the comforts of home can make a huge difference for children on vacation somewhere as exciting as the Disney Parks!

    It should not be a problem bringing your own metal spoon and fork when it comes to cutlery. A knife, however, is a different story, as the Walt Disney World Property Rules specifically state that knives are not allowed on the property. Therefore, I would recommend that you bring the other two utensils and rely on plastic knives, available at any dining location, or knives supplied at Table Service restaurants if that is where you will be dining. As an alternative, they make very cute 3-in-1 plastic serrated “sporks” for sale on Amazon! This way, there is one less thing to keep track of! 

    Trudy, I hope that this information helps you continue to plan your next magical Disney vacation! We are happy to help with any questions that come up for our Guests, so do not hesitate to come back and see us again very soon, as it would be our pleasure to continue to help you plan and dream!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
