    HI, we are going to Disney world for the first time, myself, husband and 12 year old son. Can anyone suggest ideas for a lunch we can place in my backpack and bring into the park, we are going in August. Thanks

    Hi Karen!  I am so excited for you,  first time visits to Walt Disney World are something to celebrate!  Please pick up a complimentary First Visit button at any Guest Service location on Disney property.   These buttons are sure to send many warm wishes and smiles your way throughout your trip; and they make really great keepsakes.

    I often bring a lunch and snacks into the park for my family to enjoy.   I have a small soft sided cooler pack that I use when we go to the park, it is a great way to ensure your lunch stays cool in the hot sun.   At Disney you will be doing a lot of walking so you will want to pack food that will keep your energy up all day long. Peanut butter sandwiches are a great source of protein and they don't have to be kept cool.  I also love to bring granola bars, fruit, string cheese, and trail mix.  I always bring a bottle of water for each family member, along with  water-flavoring pouches that we buy from local stores at home.   You can refill your water bottle at most drinking fountains, and can even ask for complimentary cups of ice-water at any quick service Disney Dining location.   The Florida sun is extremely hot in August and you want to make sure you keep your family cool and hydrated. 

    Karen, enjoy making memories with your family at Walt Disney World this summer.   If we can help you again in the future please stop back by.

    Have a Disney Day,
