    My children are picky eaters. Can I bring a rolling cooler into magic kingdom to eat in a picnic area or leave in the car & be able to return and carry to a picnic area? Thank you for your help and time.

    Hi Tanya! You are able to bring a small cooler into the Parks. It can not be any larger than 24" X 15" X 18". You'll find that most soft-sided coolers generally seem to fit within those dimensions.

    The Disney website states: "Suitcases, coolers or backpacks with or without wheels larger than 24" (61 cm) long x 15" (38 cm) wide x 18" (46 cm) high. (Coolers required for medication may be stored in a locker or at Guest Relations.)"

    If you want to bring a big cooler to leave in your car, you are able to exit the Park and re-enter on the same day without any trouble. While there aren't really "picnic areas" near the entrances, you can always head back to your car and eat your lunch at your vehicle, then go back into the Park again if you'd like. If you decide to bring a smaller cooler into the Park with you instead, I think you'll find that you'll want a soft-sided cooler as it is easier to store when you are done using it.

    Hope this helps and that you enjoy your vacation!
