    I was wondering if guests are still allowed to bring their own snacks into the park? We are visiting the park in a little over a week and are traveling with a toddler.

    Hiya, Cassie!

    Welcome to planDisney! I'm Kristen, and I'm happy to be your planEAR today!

    Oh Boy! It sounds like your Mouseketeer and my mini Mickey might get along just fine. Even though there are delicious eats, treats, and sweets everywhere, nothing compares with the goodies brought from home or the hotel. I'm very happy to say that yes, as long as the snacks you're packing are not in glass containers, you are more than welcome to bring as many snacks, beverages, sippy cups, kiddo meals, etc, as you need to get through your Disney days.

    Baby food in small glass jars is acceptable, but do be careful! You're also welcome to bring in your own beverages, in bottles that are still factory-sealed or reusable containers filled from home. I once brought an entire flat of water in the bottom of my stroller, and the Security Cast Members didn't bat an eye. The only ask in the beverage department is no alcohol, please.

    Pro Tip: If you have a dining reservation but have already checked out the menu and there doesn't appear to be anything that your little one would like, you're more than welcome to bring a meal from another location in with you. I like to Mobile Order something that my son will eat from a nEARby Quick-Service location and bring it to the Table-Service restaurant with us. Talk about a win-win-win!

    Bonus Tip: Did you know that the Baby Care Centers have a dedicated kitchen space where you can heat and prepare a baby or toddler meal? There are even handy high chairs should you need to contain your Mouseketeer. These spaces even sell last-minute supplies that you may have run out of or forgotten!

    I hope that this helped to clEAR up your question, Cassie, and to better plan your upcoming Disney days! Be sure to follow the official planDisney Panel Instagram account for even more tips and tricks. And if you have any more Disneyland Resort vacation planning questions, We're All Ears!
