    Can I take a small rolling cooler into the park? My son has a peanut and hazelnut allergy and I would like to bring 'safe' snacks. Thanks

    Hi Patricia,

    My family always carries a small, soft cooler with us filled with snacks and drinks for my two boys.  Guests are permitted to bring small, soft coolers into the parks with snacks and/or other items they need throughout the day.  Most coolers that I have seen within the dimensions permitted are soft, shoulder coolers.  You can find the parks' policy regarding bringing coolers by clicking HERE.  The website states that:

    Suitcases, coolers or backpacks with or without wheels larger than 24" (61 cm) long x 15" (38 cm) wide x 18" (46 cm) high are not permitted in the parks. (Coolers required for medication may be stored in a locker or at Guest Relations.)

    Many guests with food allergies are very impressed by the options available to them at the table service restaurants throughout the resorts and parks.  If you are interested in dining on-site, you should let your reservation agent know about your son's specific allergies, and when you are seated, the chef or a designee will come to your table to discuss safe and delicious options for him.

    Have a magical trip!
