    Can I take a small cooler that would fit in my stroller and put sandwiches/snacks in it at Disney? I know Disney has great places to eat, but thinking of saving some extra money if possible by bringing a few food items of our own.

    Hi Laura,

    Bringing your own food and non-alcoholic beverages into the Disney theme parks is a great way to save some money during your upcoming vacation.  I often tuck a bagel or a beverage in my backpack on park days so I don't have to stop for breakfast.  The money I save on potential purchases like these really adds up after a few days.  

    You are welcome to bring a small, soft-sided cooler into the parks with you.  The security team at Disney will look through the cooler before you enter the turnstiles but they won't stop you from bringing your treats into the park with you.

    Let us know if you have any additional questions as you plan for your upcoming trip.  

    Have fun!
