    I was told I can take ice cubes contained in baggies in my cooler into the parks. Is this true? It's a medium cooler we will keep sandwiches and water that will be on my ECV. I know we can't have loose ice, so wanted to know if this was ok. Thanks!

    Hello, Jennifer,

    Thank you for sending your question to planDisney. You are almost to your 60-day countdown to your trip to Walt Disney World!  And when you are 60 days out, you can begin making online dining reservations as early as 5:45 AM EST; and if you are staying at a Disney Resort, you can make 10 days worth of reservations!  I always mark my calendar and set my alarm early for that day.  Then, I begin making my reservations by highest priority rather than chronologically. 

    Walt Disney World does have park rules that do allow guests to bring in coolers to the theme parks.  The coolers must not be larger than 24" long x 15" wide x 18" high. You are correct that bags of ice are allowed, but reusable ice packs are preferred. And just a reminder that dry ice and loose ice are not allowed.  If at any point on your trip you'd like to no longer carry your cooler, there are locker rentals available at the theme parks and water parks. 

    Have a wonderful trip!  I hope you have a chance to visit the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival when you are visiting. It transforms the park into an even more lovely spot to visit with all the beautiful flowers and gardens that are added for the festival. 

    Please let us know if you have any further questions.  Wishing you a pixie-dusted day!
