Just like any hack, there are some rules you need to be aware of before packing your picnic for your day in the park.

Time to have the perfect picnic!

The first rule is that drinks brought in must be non-alcoholic. Stick to water and sodas when you bring in drinks. Disney offers a wide variety of alcoholic beverages in its theme parks, water parks, Disney Springs, and all of its hotels.

If you plan on bringing a cooler into the park to keep your drinks and snacks cold, that is totally fine! You just cannot fill your cooler with loose ice. Instead, think about purchasing reusable ice packs to keep your cooler cold.

One final rule is that glass jars are prohibited in the park. This is due to safety concerns of glass breaking. Instead, stick to plastic baggies or containers to keep your snacks safe.
