    We are visiting from Costa Rica next month and I want to know if we can meet inside out characters and where? also I would like to know if we can bring snaks to the park for my 4 year old girl, thanks.

    HI Maria,

    I have good news. The answer is yes for both your questions!

    You can meet Joy and Sadness at the Epcot Character Spot daily. This character greeting is the only time at Walt Disney World history that Sadness brings happiness. She is so lovably adorable. The Epcot Character Spot is in Future World and generally is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. FastPass+ is not available for Joy and Sadness, so you may want to arrive early for the shortest wait to see the stars of Inside Out

    Walt Disney World guests are welcome to bring snacks and drinks into all four of the theme parks. I always like to have a water bottle with me and usually tuck a few protein bars inside my bag, just in case I need a little boost between meals. I've seen families unpack entire meals at the parks! It really is up to you how much food you want to carry.

    The only restrictions are that you can't bring alcohol or glass into the park with you. 

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your questions, Maria. Please let us know if we can help with any other tips as your trip nears. We're here to help.

    Enjoy your Disney vacation,
