    Hello. Provided they’re in a cooler that meets requirement size, are cold cut sandwiches/yogurts and ziploc bags with ice permitted in the parks with then new rules?


    Thanks for your question!

    Yes, as long as your cooler meets the size requirements (no larger than 24" long x 15" wide x 18" high), you can bring sandwiches, yogurts, and bagged ice in the cooler. The real restrictions to what can be inside is about not allowing loose ice, or dry ice. 

    Your next step is to find a fun spot to have lunch within the parks. Here are a few of my favorite spots;

    Magic Kingdom: Tables at the end of Main Street, U.S.A., facing Cinderella Castle
    Epcot: Seats along the shore of the World Showcase lagoon, especially at the Showcase Plaza
    Disney's Hollywood Studios: Area around Echo Lake
    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park: Tables located behind Flame Tree Barbecue

    These offer some great views and enough room to spread out. Write us back if you have other questions!

    Have a Magical (and delicious) Vacation!
