    I understand you can only remove masks to drink water in designated areas. Is a camelbak hydration bladder/backpack allowed in the parks?

    Hey there, Denise! Thanks for visiting us here at planDisney to ask your question. I noticed that your vacation is right around the corner, I know you've got to be getting so excited. We absolutely love visiting in March. The weather is just perfect.  

    I'm glad to see that you are already thinking about staying hydrated while visiting the Walt Disney World theme parks and I think you'll be happy to know that hydration packs are permitted. Just be sure to follow these simple guidelines when packing yours. The hydration pack can be no larger than 24" long x 15" wide x 16" high and be sure that no outside alcohol is packed inside and you are good to go. I actually have noticed myself being a lot thirstier when visiting the Walt Disney World theme parks lately and I think it has to do with wearing a face covering all day so I think bringing a hydration pack is a great idea. Speaking of face coverings, you are correct. You'll only be allowed to remove your face covering in designated areas called relaxation stations which can be found throughout the Walt Disney World Theme Parks or when you are completely aside maintaining physical distancing to actively enjoy a beverage or eat a snack. You'll also hear reminders while in line for attractions that currently eating and drinking while in line is prohibited. Of course, this is all temporary and to keep everyone as safe as possible. 

    Did you know that you can actually get free water while at the Walt Disney World Theme Parks and Disney Springs? It's my favorite money-saving tip to tell people! Any quick service dining location will be more than happy to give you a cup of ice water, free of charge, when you ask. In fact, I've noticed lately that a lot of these restaurants actually have many premade water cups behind the counter just waiting to be picked up. I guess the secret is out. This is something that you might want to consider that way you don't have to carry around a hydration pack all day.

    I hope this helps you out, Denise. If you have any other questions before your trip, please feel free to come back and ask.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
