    I am planning on brining lunch in for my family. Where is a good place for us to sit down and eat or picnic in Hollywood Studios and Epcot?

    Hello, Stacie,

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  When you are bringing in your own food to Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot, there are some nice spots where you can enjoy your lunch.  At Disney's Hollywood Studios, there is some seating along Sunset Boulevard across from the entrance to Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage.  You may also be able to find some limited seating around Echo Lake (look for the dinosaur in the water). 

    At Epcot, I like the little area in the United Kingdom that is adjacent to the Yorkshire Country Fish Shop.  It is set beside the water, so there are some pretty views of all of the countries. Another lovely spot is in Japan towards the back near Katsura Grill. There is also seating around the American Adventure near the Liberty Inn. Throughout both parks, there are also benches where you could eat, but they may not be as comfortable as an actual table.  

    Just a quick note about bringing your own food to the parks, please know that you can't bring alcohol or glass containers (aside from baby food jars) with you.  If you have any further questions, please let us know.  We are happy to help!  -Kara
