    I read somewhere you can't come in with loose ice in a cooler but you can bring in ziplocks and get ice from one of the quick service spots, is that true? Is there a fee?

    Hiya, Tess! Welcome to planDisney. We're so glad you're here! 

    Can you believe you're only a few days away from your magical vacation at The Most Magical Place on Earth? I couldn't be more excited for you! Before you know it, you'll be enjoying all of the seasonal merriment in the parks and heading off toward your next adventure. Be sure to check out all there is to see and do during the holidays at Walt Disney World Resort!

    Tess, I know you're asking if you're able to pick up some loose ice from the quick service locations in the parks to store in resealable bags. Unfortunately, the Walt Disney World Resort Property Rules state that loose and dry ice are not permitted in the theme parks or water parks. With that being said, I wouldn't recommend asking quick service locations for ice with the intention to place it in resealable bags. My best recommendation would be to pack reusable ice packs! If you have items that must stay cool, such as emergency medication or special dietary requirements, you'll be able to find places to keep these items cold at the Baby Care Centers in the theme parks and First Aid Centers in the water parks. If you need help locating these areas, all you need to do is ask a Cast Member for assistance upon arrival and they'll be happy to point you in the right direction!

    You'll also be able to locate Baby Care Centers and First Aid Centers in your My Disney Experience app. I love that this app makes viewing park maps as easy as bibbidi-bobbidi-boo! Not only that, but this app will allow you to join virtual queues and mobile order food, too. It's my favorite way of minimizing waits and maximizing the fun!

    I'm wishing upon a star that your upcoming trip is extra magical and memorable! If you have any other questions, please visit us again. We're always happy to help!

    Wishing you the very merriest,
