    Is water, food or snack allowed in a backpack in the parks?

    Hi Montika!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Guests are allowed to bring in outside food and beverages into the theme parks. Keep in mind that you cannot use glass containers or bring alcohol into the theme parks and your backpack must be smaller than 24" long x 15" wide x 18" high. You can take a look at the list of Walt Disney World Resort Park Rules to get an idea of the other rules and regulations for the theme parks.

    As a mom to two boys, I always make sure our theme park backpack includes snacks (we like to bring dry cereal, fruit snacks, granola bars and crackers), water for the kids and the adults and some wipes to clean up faces and hands before and after eating. This way I can ensure my little ones can immediately have a snack anytime they are hungry, plus it's a great way to save money so we have more budget for souvenEARs!

    Please let us know if you have any other questions. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
