Yes, you can bring food and drinks into Disney World. However, there are certain rules about what you can and can’t bring to the theme parks.
The Disney World website states that you may bring food and drinks into the park, including all snacks and foods that do not require heating. Guests are required to inform security staff about any food items or picnics they are bringing into the park.
You may not bring alcoholic beverages into the park, and glass containers are not permitted either so be sure to bring any food and drink in plastic or other containers. An exception to this rule is baby food in small glass containers.
Suitcases, coolers or backpacks with or without wheels are allowed in the park. However, these cannot be larger than 24″ (61 cm) long x 15″ (38 cm) wide x 18″ (46 cm) high. For your convenience, lockers for storing personal items are available to rent on a daily basis throughout the Disney parks.
When bringing food and drink into Disney World, be aware that balloons and plastic straws are not permitted in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park for the safety of the animals. We recommend that you review the park rules before your visit to avoid any delays or disruption. These are regularly updated so be sure to check back before your trip.
