Can we take own drinks/snacks into Disney Parks?

I've heard a bottle of water can cost almost $5 in the Disney Parks. Can my family take along an insulated bag with bottled water and juice boxes for the kids? We would carry it in the stroller basket. Thanks!

I've done it both times we've been to Disney and never had a problem. No one even asks. I think it's essential. Also, my son has allergies so I have to bring in his food. If anyone gives you a hard time you can tell them your child can't eat the stuff in the park.

Disney has an official policy about bringing in food. They probably will overlook a bottle of water. Also, things have probably tightened up since 911.

Disney isn't easy doing like some other parks that have picnic tables outside the park to accommodate customers. But I guess they know they're unique.

Hi Amy,
I've always brought juice boxes & trail mix into the Disney parks (& Universal & Sea World) with me. No one has ever searched my backpack and we've never felt that bringing in your own stuff wasn't "common practice".
Perhaps things have changed since Sept.?

My sister went to Disney post September 11th and had no problem bringing in snacks and drinks in their backpacks; they were not searched, should not be a problem.

I don't think you can bring a roll-a-round cooler, if that is what you mean. I would definetly bring in a back pack as traveling with kids you will need all the extra space you can get. Your stroller is a great idea...you shouldn't have any problems. You may also consider renting a stroller, there..I think it is $5 or $7 / day and they have double strollers, too. We went last year with our 5 and 7 year old and ended up renting a stroller for both of them. Worth the $$ and convenience.

It is o.k. to bring in water and snacks. I've been there post 9/11 and our bags were searched every time we entered the parks (for safety reasons). I carried drinks and snacks and nobody said a thing.

I highly recommend renting a stroller, rather than bringing your own. Why? You'll have to watch it so it doesn't disappear. If someone walks off with your rental, you just go check out another one.

We took water bottles and snacks to the parks when we visited in October, 2001. Our bags were searched, but we didn't have any problems bringing them in.
I wouldn't worry about theft if you are planning to bring your own stroller, unless it is top of the line. Just make sure you don't leave your valuables in the basket when you go on the rides.

We were searched at MGM post Sept.11,but people were bringing in food and water. I will say one thing, most of the food prices are ridiculous at the parks.

You can always say you eat only " Kosher Food "
You know most of juish people eats only "Kosher"
