    I'm a new mom planning on taking my child to disney in September next year. She will be 2 1/2 at that time. What can you bring into the parks as far as food, and do you recommend bringing or renting a stroller? Any other tips would be helpful.

    Hiya, Ashley! 

    Guests are permitted to bring their own food items into the park with them, as long as you keep the Walt Disney World theme park rules in mind. Many guests bring snack items, and some even bring things that don't have to be heated, like sandwiches. 

    Items that would be prohibited include glass bottles or jars, except for baby food jars; alcoholic beverages; or any illegal substances. Let the security guards know when you are at bag check that you have food with you. 

    I like to remind people that you are definitely in Central Florida when you are walking around the theme parks. Anything with chocolate will melt, and things like the chewy granola bars or gummy fruit snacks get super sticky. Unless you are bringing a cooler, which you can do as long as it meets specifications outlined in the theme park rules, be careful of perishable food items.

    I always brought my own stroller. My girls were more comfortable in them than the harder ones at Disney, and I liked the storage space!

    In case you didn't know, a mom's best friend at Walt Disney World is the Baby Care Centers. Cool and comfortable, these perfect little places are the spot to be with little ones. You'll have access to high chairs, rocking chairs, a nursing room, microwaves, and items you can purchase that include diapers, baby food, and other essentials. Even if you just need a quiet place to relax for a few minutes, the Baby Care Centers really are a great place to get away from the theme park hustle and bustle.

    Have an amazingly magical vacation, Ashley!
