    I have a very picky eater and a one year old, are there any specific food items that I can't bring into the park for them??

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

    I think you'll be happy to know that as long as you follow a few guidelines, you are more than welcome to bring in outside food and beverages into the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. When you are packing your snack bag each day make sure that there is nothing in glass containers. The exception to this rule are a few small jars of baby food but nothing else. Also, there won't be a place for you to heat anything up throughout the day except for at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, so make sure you're only packing room temperature or cold food items. Keep in mind that as of May 1st, 2019 the Park Rules have been updated to state that loose ice in your bag is no longer permitted. I suggest packing the reusable gel packs to keep your snacks and drinks cold. If you are packing for yourself, be sure to leave the alcoholic beverages in your resort room fridge because outside alcohol is also not allowed into the Theme Parks. 

    When my daughter was little, she was also very picky. I found that packing small bites helped to keep her fed throughout the day but also distracted as we waited in line for attractions. Finger foods like small cheese crackers, graham crackers, grapes, carrots and string cheese were always a big hit with her and easy to pack. Things like that also aren't messy so I wasn't constantly cleaning up little hands and faces either. Baby wipes would also be a great item to throw in your bag in case of messes while you are waiting in line so you don't have to lose your spot. 

    I hope this helps Christina. If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back and ask.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
