    We are going to WDW in June of this year and I want to bring snacks for my two year old and two five year olds. What do you recommend to bring along that won't get totally destroyed in the Florida heat or get too crushed? My kids are not picky.

    Hi Lisa! I'm glad you are thinking ahead about the sun and snacks so you aren't caught with a messy bunch of goo in the parks. I think that has happened to all of us at one time or the other! My grandkids love the gummy bears but I will tell you they will melt nicely so don't take those! Instead we usually take the individual packs of snack such as crackers or pretzels. You do need to be careful of not crushing these. For the younger ones we always took cheerios. A somewhat healthy cookie we liked to use was the Fig Newtons as they are sturdy enough they won't crumble and also won't melt into a mess. Granola bars and similar things are also good. Water ultimately is the best drink of choice but we ended up taking only one bottle and filling it for each child as needed from fountains along the way. You don't want to weigh yourself down so you are trekking with a suitcase around the parks.
