  • If you have a kitchen where you will be make lunch and bring it with you, when you go to the parks. Take snacks and drinks as well. Use a backpack or 2 if you need to. I don't think that you can take coolers into the park.

  • You CAN take soft sided coolers into the parks! But still eat breakfast at the condo and pack your lunch. We usually will plan a couple of dinners out and maybe buy ice cream at the parks, but other than that we carry snacks and lunch in with us. Also take rain ponchos with you. You may not need them, but chances are you will and you don't want to get stuck buying them for $8 each in the park when you can get them at Dollar Tree for $1. A fun place you might want to try is a new restaurant called T-Rex at Downtown Disney. We just went this last weekend. It is a dinosaur themed restaurant and every few minutes the dinosaurs come to life. A few is really really packed on Sat. night (we waited more than an hour) so go early to get on the list. It's a little pricey, but the atmosphere is so cool. We paid $75 to eat for a family of 4. I totally recommend the St. Louis ribs, they were so good.
