    Can we pack lunches and take them inside the disneyland parks?

    Hi, Christina!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thanks for your question. I hope you’re getting excited for your magical visit to The Happiest Place on's just around the corner!

    If you wish to bring your own food to enjoy an outdoor meal before entering the parks, there is a picnic area located just outside the main entrance to Disneyland Park. With the exception of food items for Guests with specific dietary restrictions, outside meals are not officially permitted in either of the theme parks. However, I have brought small amounts of dry snacks, bottled water and juice boxes into the theme parks without issue, particularly when my son was younger and having his familiar snacks with us was a necessity.

    I hope this helps, Christina! Please feel free to write back with any other questions you may have as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted vacation!

    Wishing you magic,
