    Can we pack drinks and snacks in a backpack and take them into the parks

    Hi Laura!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    Guests are more than welcome to bring drinks and snacks into the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. Food and drinks can be carried in using a small cooler or backpack - it's a great way to save time and money! While my family definitely enjoys our share of snacks we choose to purchase in the parks (Mickey Rice Krispy treats are my favorite!), we like to have some small munchies on hand when we're on the go. When my 14-year-old says the word "hungry" it means we have about 10 minutes before it turns into "hangry". All I need to do is reach into my backpack and I can tame the "hangries" with some trail mix or a granola bar - easy peasy!

    While snacks and drinks are allowed, Disney has some rules and restrictions regarding personal items that can be brought into the parks. You'll want to make sure and check their list of Restricted Personal Items to make sure your backpack or cooler fits the size dimensions approved for the theme parks.

    I hope this helps with your planning and packing for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Have a magical day! - Diane W.
