Did you know that you are allowed to bring food into Disney World? That’s right, you can take your own food into all Disney Parks.

Bring Your Own Food into Disney WorldBring Your Own Food into Disney World

Bringing your own food to Disney is an awesome and easy way to save money. Plus, if you have a kid with food allergies you can have the peace of mind knowing exactly what they are eating at all times! Although allergies at Disney is not that bad since they do such a good job managing it.

The first few times we visited we were unsure whether or not you could bring in your own food until we ask someone in the park that worked there. The cast member we ask was super helpful and since then we have been saving loads of money every time we go.

Here’s what you need to know about taking food into Disney:

  • Soft sided coolers are allowed in all Disney Parks.
  • Hard sided coolers are allowed in Disney water parks only.
  • No glass allowed.
  • There is a Super Wal-Mart and a Super Target near Disney World where you can get whatever you need.
  • All rooms at Disney Hotels have a small fringe, microwave, and coffee maker.
  • There are many grocery delivery options available in Orlando including Amazon Fresh!

Other random items we have taken into Disney Parks

  • Reusable coffee mug filled with coffee or even better use a hydroflask!
  • Drinks mixes – You can refill your water bottles all over any of these parks, but sometimes the water doesn’t taste good. The water at the Magic Kingdom tastes, especially bad for some reason. We refill our water bottles and then mix in a drink flavor packets and the problem is solved.  (Another tip – Any of the restaurants will give you a glass of ice water for free.)

Get Travel Insurance

Unfortunately, there are a lot of things that can go wrong on any trip. Be prepared for the worst with travel insurance. We use Travelex or Safety Wing (often cheaper).

Book Flights

I use Skyscanner to find flights. I use it so much, I wrote an entire guide to finding cheap flights with Skyscanner!

Book a Place to Stay

I recommend using Expedia.com or Hotels.com for most hotel bookings. I prefer to book directly with Marriott when I stay there because of their excellent military discount.

If you prefer staying in a vacation rental instead, I recommend VRBO.

Rent Clothes

Rent clothes for your trip with Travel Style Expert for only $50 a month! The first 30 days are free!

Choose Activities and Tours

To find great activities in any area I use Get Your Guide and Viator. If we are visiting a city with lots of popular attractions I always check CityPass and GoCard to see if they have discount cards available. Groupon also tends to have a lot of local travel deals.

When I want to book a full-on multi-day tour I use TourRadar. They’ve got fantastic weekly deals. If I am going somewhere in Mexico or the Caribbean I use Apple Vacations.

Rent a Car or Take a Lyft

More often than not Lyft is cheaper than Uber. Use my Lyft link for an $18 credit! For a car rental in any country, I recommend Hertz or Discover Cars.

Upside, a free app gets you cash back on gas! Use promo code RV2Q2 to get an extra 15¢/gal bonus on your first purchase.

Get a Visa

I use iVisa to get all of my Visas.
