    Can you take in the Stanley ADVENTURE FAST FLOW WATER JUG that is 2 gallons into disney world?

    Hi Jessica,  

    Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for trusting our advice for your upcoming trip to the Walt Disney World Resort. Hydration is super important for your July trip, and something I always prioritize for my family during these warm summer months. Let’s see what’s possible for your idea of bringing this large water container with you on vacation.

    You are welcome to bring this two-gallon container onto the Walt Disney World Resort property and can easily keep it in your resort room. It’s not specifically on the list of Prohibited Items and I confirmed with a helpful Cast Member that it would be allowed. While that means it is also technically allowed inside the theme parks (subject to the security team's on-site discretion), you may have additional logistics concerns to work through. This container filled with ice and a beverage (loose ice is not allowed) will be quite heavy, and while strollers are allowed please know that all kinds of wagons are prohibited. It also won’t be allowed on attractions with you so I’m not sure how you will manage this container for a full theme park day.

    All quick service restaurants at the Walt Disney World Resort provide complimentary cups of ice water, which can be really helpful for staying hydrated on these hot days. My family brings a refillable water bottle (about 12-24 ounces each) for each person, and these fit easily in our backpacks for the day. We fill them up at our resort in the morning and then refill them throughout the day at these quick service restaurants or bottle refill stations in the parks. Knowing there is reliable fresh ice water available may prevent the need to manage such a large container for your group.

    Here are some of my packing necessities for a summer trip – staying hydrated and cool keeps everyone healthy and our moods in check:

    • Electrolyte packs for our water – many brands offer single-serve packets to pour into water
    • Cooling towel – using them wet around your neck can bring instant cooling to your body temperature
    • Hand held or neck fans
    • Body wipes – a mid-day refresher (especially in a mint fragrance) can make you feel much better if your schedule doesn’t allow for a mid-day pool break

    Nearly every drink cart and restaurant also offers Power-Ade for purchase which can provide much-needed electrolytes on the go, too. One more option is to have groceries delivered to your resort – my family purchases large water containers to fill our smaller bottles in the morning with and several bottles of Gatorade or Power-Ade to supplement. Whatever you choose, please know there are many options available (both complimentary and for purchase) to keep you safe and healthy without lugging a large two-gallon container into the theme parks.

    I hope this answers your question and gives you some additional solutions for hydration on your trip, Jessica. Please let us know if there’s anything else that we can answer as you finalize the details for this special vacation.  

    Wishing you a practically perfect vacation,
