    Planning on taking our high school music dept. to DL and DCA in April. Are the students and chaperones allowed to bring in water bottles and snacks?

    Hi there, Allison, and welcome to planDisney! Thank you so much for stopping by with your question.

    First off, WOW! This sounds like the coolest high school music department in Nevada! What a fantastic memory for the students and chaperones. I'm sure there will be many fun core memories made on this trip to the Happiest Place on Earth.

    I'm also happy to report that you most definitely can bring snacks and water bottles into both parks at the Disneyland Resort. The Outside Food page states that you just need to make sure there are no glass containers and that nothing requires heating, reheating, processing or refrigeration, and do not have pungent odors

    My wife and I have two little ones under five, so bringing in water bottles and snacks is a must when we visit the parks. You should be all set there, but you can also double-check the Park Rules and Regulations for the comprehensive list of prohibited items and activities if you have any specific questions.

    Late April should be an excellent time to visit the parks (and celebrate the end of another school year). I'd imagine there's still a bit of planning ahead of you for your group, so I'd love to share a couple of resources for you to help:

    • Events Calendar: This is the best place to find info on all the events and experiences going on at the Disneyland Resort. Keep in mind this only shows for about six weeks out, so you'll want to check it closer to mid-to-late March to see the dates of your trip.
    • Disney100: You'll be arriving in the midst of the Disney100 celebration! This will include new nighttime spectaculars - World of Color - ONE and Wondrous Journeys - that I'd imagine your students (and chaperones!) will love.
    • Play Disney Parks App: This is a fantastic app for the students to have along with the Disneyland Mobile App! For any students who have a MagicBand+, make sure they try the new Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunter experience!
    • Disney Imagination Campus: This may or may not be applicable to your trip, but I thought I'd also share about the Disney Imagination Campus! They specialize in enriching school trips and do some pretty cool stuff for students.

    I hope these are helpful resources for you, Allison! Thank you again for stopping by planDisney - please feel free to write me back directly if you think of any follow-up questions. I hope you all have a fantastic trip to the Disneyland Resort!

    Have a Magical Day,
