    My family and I are planning on going to the Disney parks in October. I was wanting to know if you can take in your own food? like in a backpack or something, or if you had a cooler in your car can you leave the park and eat at your car then return.

    Hi Allison.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm so glad that you stopped by with your question.

    You are indeed able to pack your own snacks, beverages or other food items in your day bags to bring into the parks at Walt Disney World. Rolling coolers are not permitted inside the parks. Should you wish to pack a cooler and return to your car during the day, you are certainly more than welcome to do so. You will be granted re-entry to the same park during the same day with a Base Ticket, or to additional parks in the same day if you have added the Park Hopper Option to your Magic Your Way Tickets.

    I hope this information is helpful to you Allison. If you should have additional questions about your fall visit, please don't hesitate to write back to me. I'd love to hear from you again.

    Wishing you a simply Magical time as you plan for your Walt Disney World vacation!
