The times that we live in are changing and large companies, such as Disney, have to change with them. On the heels of recent tragedies throughout the world Disney has implanted changes to security to include what can be brought into their theme parks. So instead of discussing what cannot be brought into the parks, let’s focus on what CAN be brought into the Disney theme and water parks.
- Coolers – Coolers that do not exceed 24” long x 15” wide x 18” high (61cm x 38cm x 46cm) are permitted.
- Food – Park guests are allowed to bring their own snacks and food that does not require heating into the parks for their enjoyment. Baby food in small glass containers is also permitted. I like to use Garden Grocer to order food and have it delivered to my room!
- Water – Guests are also permitted to bring their own water or other non-alcoholic drink that are not in glass containers into the parks. Water fountains are located all over the parks for easy and FREE refills.
- Strollers, wheelchairs, ECVs – Mobility devices and strollers that do not exceed 36” x 52” are permitted in the Disney parks. Guests can bring their own or they can rent one, from Disney or a third party company.
- Service Animals – Service animals are allowed into the theme parks, however due to the nature of some attractions they may not be allowed to ride.
- Bags – Purses, backpacks, small duffel bags, and shopping bags that do not exceed the 24” x 15” x by 18” rule are permitted. All bags will be searched prior to entrance to the parks.
- Recording Devices – Camera and video camera are allowed as long as the recordings are not for commercial use.
- Costumes – Costumes to include masks are permitted to be worn ONLY by children age 13 and under, this includes for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. Masks may not hinder vision.
- Cigarettes – Cigarettes, e-cigarettes, and other smoke or vapor producing products are permitted to be brought into the parks, however smoking is only permitted in designated areas.
This list is not all inclusive, but it does include items that could bring forth questions from guests planning a trip. Other items besides these may also be brought into the parks. For information on what items are not permitted to be brought into the parks check out the Disney World and/or Disneyland Park Rules.
