    I have 3 small children that I am bringing to WDW Park.. Ages 3 1/2, 7 1/2 & 6 1/2. Can I bring a soft sided cooler with beverages, snacks, & lunch? What size?

    Hi Beverly!

    My children are just about the same age as yours, and we have visited Walt Disney World with them since they were infants, so I understand the importance of taking snacks and food along with you!

    You can bring a soft-sided cooler into the park with you.  I'd suggest one that fits easily in the storage area under your stroller.  Here are the specifics from the Disney Theme Parks Frequently Asked Questions:

    You may not bring the following types of items into the theme parks:
    Suitcases, coolers or backpacks with or without wheels larger than 24" (61 cm) long x 15" (38 cm) wide x 18" (46 cm) high. 

    Also, keep in mind that all items will be searched prior to entry to the parks.  Glass bottles are not allowed in the parks, unless they are baby food jars, and drink lids and straws are not permitted inside Disney's Animal Kingdom.  

    Have a magical vacation!
