    Is it possible to take your own food, such as sandwiches, chips and fruit, into the Disney parks?

    Hello there Helen!  Thank you for bringing your question to us at planDisney.

    You'll be happy to know that Guests are welcome to bring their own food and non-alcoholic beverages into Walt Disney World theme parks and water parks.  Here are a few things to keep in mind when packing up to head into the parks:

    • Glass containers (other than small baby food jars) are not permitted.
    • The maximum allowable bag or cooler size is 24" long x 15" wide x 18" high.
    • Loose ice and dry ice in coolers are not permitted.  Reusable ice packs are recommended. Small baggies of ice are allowed.
    • Lockers are available to rent for the day.  Check the dimensions of the lockers to be sure your bag will fit, should you opt to store it.
    • Food should not require heating or preparation.
    • All persons and bags will undergo a security screening prior to entering Disney Parks.
    I recommend reviewing the Walt Disney World Resort Property Rules for more details and a list of prohibited items.

    I like to bring an insulated water bottle with me.  I'll fill it with ice at my Disney Resort Hotel and refill it with water throughout the day at water fountains or bottle filling stations in the parks.  Complimentary cups of ice water are also available at any quick-service dining location.  I toss sturdy, portable snacks in my park bag such as baby carrots, apples, protein bars, nuts, and cheese.  This way I save a little by eating healthy snacks and then splurge on a few yummy treats in the parks.

    I hope that helps!  Helen, if you have any other questions in advance of your stay, please feel free to stop by planDisney again anytime.  Have a wonderful holiday!
