    Hi! My husband and I will be traveling to WDW for the first time 11/28-12/4. I have a question about what I can bring into a resort. I know that the theme parks do not allow rolling coolers, my question is can you bring it into the resort? Thanks so much

    Hi, Cherish!  You can absolutely bring a rolling cooler into your resort with you.  I do it all the time, as we often drive from New Jersey to Walt Disney World, and I like to keep cold drinks and snacks handy for the girls on the road.

    The rolling coolers are not permitted into the theme parks, as they can be a hazard to other guests.  People are often in a hurry to get from one place to another, and if they aren't paying attention, a trip over a rolling cooler could result in quite a nasty fall!  You can, however, bring a smaller cooler, like the smaller, soft sided ones that you can carry on your shoulder.

    I hope this helps with your packing and planning!  Have a great vacation!
