    Hi! We are trying to stick to a budget. Planning on staying off site (we think)! Can we bring our own food into the parks?

    Hi Maria,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. We on the panel love helping guests to plan magical vacations!

    I have good news for you. Yes, you can bring outside food into the Walt Disney World theme parks. My family almost always packs snacks and bottled water in our backpacks when heading into a Disney theme park. This way, we can take care of hunger whenever it comes up - which can be especially important for little ones waiting in line! Please do note that you cannot bring alcohol or glass containers into Disney theme parks, and check out the list of restricted personal items at Walt Disney World for further information about permitted coolers and backpacks.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Maria! Have a great time planning your magical vacation, and please do let us know if you have any further questions.
