    Can you take food into the park. And what types of food and drinks. What type of container does it have to be in

    Hi Pat!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I love answering questions from fellow Pennsylvanians!

    Yes! Walt Disney World Resort Guests are welcome to bring food, such as snacks that do not require heating, into the theme parks. Guests can also bring non-alcoholic beverages such as bottled water, soda or juice boxes. When my family is headed to the theme parks, we like to pack granola bars and apples as well as a few bottles of water to have on hand in-between meals. I've found that packing some of our own snacks and drinks is a great way to save some money and keep everyone happy! It's a win-win! That said, you are certainly not limited to just snacks; I know that some families even like to pack a picnic lunch.

    When determining what you'd like to bring into the theme parks, just keep in mind that glass containers are not allowed, with the exception of glass baby food jars. There are some restrictions on the size of coolers you can bring, and certain items are prohibited. You just need to make sure you adhere to the Walt Disney World Resort Park Rules, so be sure to read those carefully.

    I hope this answers your question, Pat. Please stop back again if you have any additional questions about your upcoming trip.

    Wishing you magical vacation memories!
