What things can you bring into Disney World and what things are prohibited?

QOTD Pattern option 3 SQUARE 4 - What things can you bring into Disney World and what things are prohibited?Just like any other public venue there are definitely things you can and cannot bring into Disney World. And honestly, there might be a few
things that surprise you on both of the lists.

 

Items prohibited at Disney World:

  • Anything that you can pull behind you. This includes wagons and coolers.
  • Alcohol, marijuana, and illegal drugs.
  • Folding chairs. Rollators are allowed but you can't bring folding chairs with you to use while you wait in line or for shows, etc.
  • Selfie Sticks. These were banned a few years ago after they became a hazard on some of the attractions.
  • Weapons of any kind as well as any toy weapons that could easily be mistaken for the real thing.
  • Extra-large strollers. Strollers must be smaller than 36" by 52".
  • Segways or any sort of mobility device that doesn't have at least 3 wheels.
  • Drones, skateboards, scooters, skates, and Heelys (or any shoes with built in wheels).
  • Tripods larger than what can fit inside of your backpack.
  • Any clothes with objectionable or obscene language or graphics.
  • Any clothes that reveal more skin than what is considered appropriate for a "family environment".

Animal Kingdom has a couple of park-specific prohibited items that are dangerous for the animals:

  • Straws (paper straws are allowed)
  • Balloons

What about costumes? Disney has some special rules for those:

  • Costumes and masks should only be worn by guests younger than 14 EXCEPT during special events like Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, and Star Wars themed events like Star Wars: Galactic Nights.
  • Toy weapons that could easily be mistaken for the "real thing" aren't allowed.

Surprising items allowed at Disney World

  • Food. You can bring any food items you'd like except for alcohol and items in glass containers.
  • Coolers. Small coolers are allowed - they just can't be larger than 24" by 15" by 18" (and nothing that you pull behind you).
  • Umbrellas (you can't use them everywhere, but they are allowed in).
