    Are coolers allowed in the parks?

    Hello Isana!

    It sounds like you are planning an incredible Walt Disney World vacation! I definitely like to research if items are permitted in the parks of Walt Disney World before I place them in my suitcase. A great resource is the Walt Disney World Resort Property Rules.

    You can bring a cooler into the Wald Disney World theme parks or water parks as long as it is not larger than 24" long x 15" wide x 18" high (61 cm x 38 cm x 46 cm). Also, loose ice or dry ice in the cooler is not permitted. Re-usable ice packs are recommended for cooling inside of your cooler. Make sure you do not have any glass containers inside of your cooler.

    I have often used a soft-sided cooler on my Walt Disney World vacations, and it worked great! Also, I like freezing a plastic water bottle or two to keep the inside of my cooler cold, and then drink the water later when I am in the park.

    I hope that your upcoming Walt World vacation is incredible in every way!
