    I was just wondering if you were allowed to bring your own drinks and food inside the park? I'm on a budget,so buying food inside the park is going to be my last resort.

    Hi Joy!


    You are allowed to take a small soft-sided cooler into the theme parks. So pack your favorite meals, but be sure not to bring any alcoholic beverages, or anything in glass bottles. Keep in mind that you can find inexpensive, nutritional, healthy, and delicious meal options at several Quick Service dining locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. Below you'll find some of my personal picks:


    1. Columbia Harbour House at Magic Kingdom. A bowl of New England Clam Chowder is just $4.49! I recommend the Harvest Garden Salad for $8.19. Columbia Harbour House Menu.
    2. Studios Catering Co. at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Love the Greek Salad for just $6.49! The Chicken Caesar Wrap is good too, and just $8.69. Studios Catering Co. Menu.
    3. Sunshine Seasons Food Co. at Epcot. I suggest the Seared Tuna Salad for $9.29, and the Rotisserie Chicken for $10.19. Sunshine Seasons Food Co. Menu.
    4. Flame Tree Barbeque at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Try the Barbeque Chicken Salad for $7.79 or the 1/2 Slab of St. Louis Ribs for $10.69. Flame Tree Barbeque Menu.


    I recommend making reservations at one or two table service restaurants too.
