    My son has Autism and is very picky about the food, snacks and juice he will drink. I know there is a no food policy to bring into the parks but are there any exceptions for Children with Disabilities?

    Hello, Julie-Ann!

    I have great news for you! All guests are welcome to bring outside food and drink items to the theme parks, with only a few restrictions:
    • No alcoholic beverages or illegal substances
    • No glass containers (other than baby food jars)
    • No coolers larger than 24" long x 15" wide x 18" high (61 cm x 38 cm x 46 cm)
    Please keep in mind that you should not pack any items that will need to be heated. Make sure to look over the Park Rules and Regulations before your visit for a full list of prohibited items.

    Most table-service restaurants and some quick-service locations are able to accommodate special dietary requests, so that may be an option for your son, as well.

    I hope you and your family have a wonderful Walt Disney World vacation, Julie-Ann!
