    My family and I will be visiting the Parks later this month. We are wanting to bring lunch to WDW and want to make sure our lunches stay within a safe temperature range. We need to know if WDW will allow coolers with dry ice. Please help.

    Hi Lisa! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    You and your family must be getting so excited that you soon will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. For my family there is nothing like the excitement that builds up as our vacation approaches. One of the really fun things that we have started doing is about a month before our trip; we make a paper chain for each of the kids. Each morning they get to take one of the chains off. This really is such an exciting activity for them and it gets me excited having something tangible to count down to our vacation with!

    There are some restricted personal items that are not allowed into the Theme Parks and Water Parks. Coolers do have some restrictions on them. “Suitcases, coolers or backpacks with or without wheels larger than 24” (61cm) long x 15” (38 cm) wide x 18” (46 cm) high,” will not be permitted into the Theme Parks and Water Parks.

    I hope that I have helped to answer your question. Please feel free to come back and ask us any additional vacation planning questions that you may have! We really love helping guests just like you!

    Have a magical time visiting my happy place!
