    Can I take an umbrella into the parks?

    Hi Nikki!
    Welcome back to planDisney.

    Thank you for sending in this great question, because umbrellas are so useful in Florida!  They provide shelter from both rain and sun, which we frequently experience at Walt Disney World!

    Umbrellas are permitted in the Walt Disney World theme parks.  I recommend you bring a folding umbrella which is much easier to carry around the park in a backpack or any bag.  I also recommend that when you are walking through the security screening point you remove it from your bag and hold it so it's visible to the security officers.  Otherwise, you may be called over to have your bag checked if it shows as an unrecognisable object.

    A full list of prohibited items can be seen here.

    Please take good care when using your umbrella, especially in crowded areas or while watching a parade or show as it may obstruct the view of guests nearby.  

    As an alternative to umbrellas for rain protection, the official Disney reusable ponchos provide great coverage and will be replaced if damaged.  You can purchase them from stores and kiosks all around the theme parks and Disney Resort hotels for around $12 for adults, and $10 for children (prices subject to change).

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation at Walt Disney World, and keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official news about events that may be happening during your stay.
