    I was wondering if you were aloud to use a small propane grill to cook on in parking area for like hot dogs and that or is there a picnic area close by.. Thank you

    Hi Alan, There is no tailgating or cooking allowed in the Disney theme park parking lots. There are charcoal grills available at Fort Wilderness and several of the other Disney resorts, but these are primarily for the use of resort guests. You are allowed to bring your own food and beverages with you into the theme parks. There are no restrictions other than you may not bring in glass containers or alcoholic beverages. My suggestion is that you pack some sandwiches, fruit, snacks, and sodas and bring them into the park with you. You'd be welcome to eat your own food at any of the tables at the counter service restaurants or on outside benches. There are lockers available for storage if you don't want to carry things around all day. You should be aware the largest cooler size allowed in the parks is 24"x 15" x 18". If you have more food than will fit in a bag this size, you should bring multiple smaller containers. Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if we can provide additional assistance.
