Disney Quick Tip – Bring Snacks With You To The Parks

Today’s Disney Quick Tip is about bringing snacks with you to the Parks.  Whether you are looking for another way to save money at Disney or have a family member with finicky taste buds, you can bring snacks with you to the Parks.

Walt Disney World permits guests to bring food items and snacks in that do not require warming and are not in glass containers (baby bottles and baby food jars excluded). Coolers or backpacks that you are using to bring snacks in must be no larger than 24″ long, 18″ high, and 15″ wide.

My family brought the following items into the parks with us over prior trips:

  • granola bars
  • fruit bars
  • chips
  • crackers
  • cookies
  • nuts
  • dry cereal
  • dried fruit
  • popcorn

We still end up purchasing a few snacks along the way like popcorn, a churro, or a Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar, but supplementing with “outside” snacks helps keep our costs down.  We also don’t use our snack money on drinks because we ask for a free cup of ice water at any WDW counter service location. If you don’t like the water taste, pack a few Crystal Light or other drink flavoring packets to add in the water.

What snack options did we miss?  What snacks has your family brought into the Parks? We would love to hear your ideas!
