    Hi moms. Heading back to Disney on July 8 super excited! I was wondering if the moms have any special pearls of wisdom about special food ,snacks or drinks at Disney? I am traveling with my hubby and 2 kids, 7 and 5. We are staying at the Beach club.

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Estelle!

    Disney's Beach Club Resort is absolutely stunning and your kids are going to LOVE Stormalong Bay! My kids request we stay there just for the pool and always want a whole day scheduled to play and swim. You are going to have an amazing visit.

    I'm not sure if it's really a "pearl of wisdom," (love that!) but what I like to do is order some groceries ahead of time from somewhere like Garden Grocer. I order small drinks and snacks that are individually packed and that I know the kids adore and have them delivered straight to our room. Not only does it save us some money, but we have them at all times and aren't always having to stop. You are able to bring a soft-sided cooler into the parks, but I usually just put the items in a backpack and find it easier to carry and manage. You can also put the drinks in the top freezer part of the in-room fridge the night before to make them extra cold! Sometimes, we even order items to make a quick and easy breakfast in the room before we head out.

    I wish you a wonderful vacation, Estelle! If there is anything else we can help you with, please send me, or any panelist, another question. 

    Happy Planning,
