Buffet dining

    What snacks/drinks can we bring to the parks at WDW? My party is doing dining plan but we have 2 kids under 3. I know they eat off our plate, but I don't think their drinks are included. My first is an avid milk drinker. Any advice or thoughts?

    Welcome BACK, Christy!

    You sound just like me when I was planning my Mouseketeer's first visit to meet Mickey at Walt Disney World Resort a few years ago. Guests are allowed to bring in as many outside snacks, meal items and beverages as they wish, and there currently is no limit as to how many bags guests may bring with them. The only prohibited items are outside alcohol, items in glass containers (with the exception of baby food in glass jars), and bags and coolers larger than 24" x 15" x 18". Do note that each bag will be searched, so it's faster to bring only what you will need + a few spares.

    While children under three are allowed to share meal items with those who do have a Disney Dining Plan at no additional charge, you technically can order beverages, additional side or meal items, or even an entire kids' meal as an out-of-pocket expense when redeeming your meal entitlements. Alternatively, try to book buffet and family-style meals as littles receive their own plate and standard beverage for no additional cost. (Beverages includes milk, juice, tea and soda.)

    Many Dining Locations do carry low-fat white milk and low-fat chocolate milk (Nesquick). If you need whole or a milk substitute, my go-to locations are the Quick-Service Food Courts and sundries shops at Disney Resort Hotels, as well as the in-park Starbucks locations. And bonus tip: should you need juice, formula or children's medicine, stop by the Baby Care Centers.

    We'll See You Real Soon, Christy!
