    Are hydration backpacks allowed?? Can they be filled prior to entering?? Thanks!

    Hiya, Sam! 

    I’m so glad you are planning on a safely-hydrated visit to the Disneyland Resort. All bags and personal items are subject to safety inspection upon entering the Disneyland Resort area. Certain items, such as glass containers (except for small containers such as baby food jars) and alcoholic beverages are not permitted in the theme parks and Downtown Disney District. But your hydration pack, full or empty, should be allowed. I’ve seen many guests making use of these handy hydration packs at the Disneyland Resort. Though it’s not likely an issue for most packs, do be aware that backpack must not be larger than 24 inches long by 15 inches wide by 18 inches high. Though loose ice is not allowed, it is usually fine to have ice contained inside the hydration pack bladder if you choose.

    Tony’s Tip: Should the Southern California sun get your thirst up enough to empty your hydration pack, make use of complimentary water cups and water bottle refill stations throughout the theme parks.

    Should you be interested in other cool treats and beverages during your visit, here are some of my favorites:
    Pixar Pier Frosty Parfait from Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats
    Strawberry Honey Balsamic with Black Pepper ice cream from Salt & Straw in Downtown Disney District
    The Blurrgfire at Oga’s Cantina in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge
    Red's Apple Freeze from Cozy Cone Motel

    Have a magical time, Sam!
