    Are portable/folding shopping carts allowed to be brought into the parks-- (for example they sell them on amazon) the dimensions are HxWxD 22.5 x 24.5 x 39.25 - its no bigger than a stroller, You push it & can put your purchases and backpacks/souvenir

    Hi Stacey,

    Thanks for stopping by with your question. According to the official policy at Walt Disney World regarding restricted personal items, personal/folding shopping carts are not mentioned. However, it also states that "additional items may not be permitted inside the theme parks". I have never seen one used in the parks, and that is probably because they have not permitted them.

    For your convenience, your purchases and souvenirs can be sent to the front of the theme park for pick-up upon your exit from the theme park later in the day or they can also be sent to your resort (as long it is within 36-48 hours before your departure). This merchandise pick up service is complimentary and is extremely helpful so that you don't have to carry around bulky packages all day. Simply mention this to the cast member, if they don't offer it, and they'll be happy to help you with the paperwork. There are also lockers for rent at each theme park for backpacks and personal items. These are usually found near the park entrances.

    Have a magical trip!
