    I was hoping to find out - specifically - what is and isn't allowed to be "brought in" to the parks. While we are there, I'd like to carry snacks and water with us - in order to keep our spending money for cool WDW stuff - not food :-) Thanks!

    Hi Betsy!

    Thank you so much for your question!  Bringing your own snacks and food into the parks is a super way to save money for those special Disney goodies that we love to bring back home!

    You can bring food and snacks into the parks!  Alcohol and glass jars (except for baby food jars) are not allowed in the parks, and at Disney's Animal Kingdom, they'll also ask that plastic straws not be brought in, as they are a specific hazard to the wildlife. 

    Also know that all bags are subject to inspection, so your items will be checked before you come into the parks.

    Have a magical vacation!
