    My son has autism. He has a limited diet. Will I be able to bring him food inside the park or nutritional drinks such as Pediasure?

    Hi Michelle!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. My son has multiple food allergies and I often bring food with us into the theme parks to make sure that he has safe options during our magical day. Guests are welcome to bring food and drinks into the theme parks provided that they are not in glass containers, except for small containers for baby food. Also, your backpack or cooler to transport your items cannot be larger than 24" long x 15" wide x 18" high. You can read the park rules for a complete list of guidelines on things you can bring into the theme parks.

    Keep in mind that Cast Members and Chefs are prohibited from storing, preparing, cooking or reheating any food you bring into the theme parks. I have found that drinks, including nutritional substitutes, snacks, sandwiches, and other items that can be served cold or at room temperature are great to bring with us for a day visiting Mickey and his friends! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
