Can You Bring Your Own Food to a Disney World Park or Restaurant?

Yes, you can bring your own food into the Disney World parks and restaurants! There are a few rules though:

  1. You can not bring glass containers into the parks.
  2. You can not bring alcoholic beverages into the parks.
  3. You can not bring coolers or backpacks larger than 24″ long x 15″ wide x 18″ high (61cm x 38cm x 132cm)
  4. Restaurants can not heat up your food or cook with your ingredients.

Guests are permitted to bring their own snacks to keep in their resort rooms and bring into the Disney parks. Bringing your own snacks is a great idea for those with special dietary needs. Even when flying we bring our own snacks in our suitcases, and we may ship some to our hotel. We’ll sometimes use grocery delivery services to have food delivered to our room.

Some people may prefer or need to bring their own food to the Disney restaurants.

For the full-service restaurants, if one person in your party will be bringing food, it’s usually no problem to do so as long as someone else in your party is ordering from the restaurant.

For food courts and counter service restaurants, if your entire party wants to bring all of their own food, this is fine. However this is not permitted in full-service restaurants.

Remember that none of the restaurants are able to heat your food, use it in preparing your meals, or even to store it. This is a state law.

The Disney food courts usually have a microwave available to guests. If you need a microwave in your Disney hotel room, you can request this and they’ll usually be able to provide one.
